Dawg Post Friday Recruiting Notes:

Dawg Post gives the latest update on Georgia Bulldog recruiting.

It’s widely known that Georgia staff would like to bring in two quarterbacks in the 2018 class. With their top targets committed elsewhere, the Bulldogs extended an offer recently to Central Gwinnett quarterback Jarren Williams. The three-star prospect is one of the hottest recruits in the south at the moment after picking up offers from Alabama, Georgia, and many others. Georgia is behind a few others right now for Williams, who is a former Kentucky commit. A decision could come soon, with the Wildcats still in a great spot at the moment.

With defensive end targets Brenton Cox and Adam Anderson committed elsewhere, the Georgia staff will likely turn the heat up on Marietta (GA) pass rusher Azeez Ojulari and Miller Grove (GA) defensive end Caleb Tanner. The Bulldogs are highly thought of by both, but the staff needs to make both a priority moving forward. Defensive tackle target Darnell Jefferies is looking narrow his recruitment down and likely commit before the football season. Clemson looks like the team to beat for Jefferies at this time with Georgia close behind. The Bulldogs are still in a good spot for IMG Academy (FL) defensive tackle T.K Chimedza.

Things are still trending Georgia’s way for top safety target Trey Dean. The Dutchtown (GA) product has great size and length, and while Georgia offered later than most, he is clearly a priority now in this 2018 class. I expect him to make a decision in the next month or two.  Auburn leads for Carver (GA) safety Quindarious Monday, but the Bulldogs are in the mix for GAC defensive back Kyler McMichael, a four-star prospect who has really impressed this spring.

2020 athlete Arik Gilbert out of Woodward Academy is a prospect to know moving forward. The 6-foot-5 240-pound DE/TE has been excellent in camps, and has five-star potential down the road. Gilbert holds a Georgia offer, and had a great time during his G-day visit. Ole Miss and Florida State are his two most recent offers.

The Georgia staff extended an offer yesterday to 2019 defensive back Chester Kimbrough. The 6-foot-0 170-pound defender out of Louisiana admitted that he does not know much about the UGA program at all, but will give them a closer look as his recruitment moves forward.

Last night Georgia offered 2020 Villa Rica running back Mecose Todd. Todd is a large bruising back who stands out physically and will be a national recruit sooner than later. He is one of many impressive backs in the 2020 class along with Callaway’s Cartavious Bigsby, Peachtree Ridge’s Miles Friday, and Stephenson’s Deondre Jackson.

2020 athlete Michael Robertson Jr. has informed me that he has transferred to Savannah Christian Prep from Callaway.
