It’s an interesting time with Georgia recruiting right now, as the 2018 class is not coming together the way the 2017 class did. The staff has reached out to new targets and extended offers to new prospects.
One of those new offers went out to Marietta (GA) outside linebacker Azeez Ojulari. The 6-foot-3 230-pound defender holds offers from Alabama, Florida, Ole Miss, among others. He’s been outstanding at recent camps this spring, and looks the part physically. He’s an outstanding pass rusher who can play with his hand on the ground as well. With target Brenton Cox choosing Ohio State over Georgia earlier this week, offering Ojulari was no brainer.
The Bulldog staff also offered another 2019 prospect in Milton (GA) defensive back Joseph Charleston. The impressive sophomore has great size at 6-foot-2 190-pounds, and will continue to pick up major offers down the road.
“Running backs coach Dell McGee offered me and I was extremely happy when I found out.” Charleston said. “Living in Georgia was a dream come true to have been offered by Georgia.”
Vanderbilt has offered, and Alabama is showing strong interest at the moment.
It’s clear the staff needs to find other targets on the defensive line, and one new target could possibly be McEachern (GA) defensive end Michael Fairbanks. The 6-foot-3 260-pound defender was impressive at Rising Seniors, and holds offers from UAB, Central Michigan, and others. He played alongside current Bulldog Julian Rochester as a sophomore, and practiced against current Clemson guard Tremayne Anchrum every day. Fairbanks has the potential to start earning some bigger offers down the road.
Another new 2018 prospect to know is Harrison (GA) linebacker Ricky Williams JR. The 6-foot-3 212-pound prospect has had a big spring so far, and is starting to hear from schools including Michigan, Michigan State, and Tennessee. He has good size and versatility, as he can play outside linebacker or safety at the next level.
