Friday Kirby Smart Camp News and Notes:

Dawg Post breaks down all the news and notes from a short but important Kirby Smart Camp

The media was allowed to see approximately 30 minutes of Friday’s Kirby Smart camp, but it was an eventful day overall with multiple offers being sent out to in-state targets.

The Troup County Tigers have two of the top prospects in their respected classes in 2020 ATH Kobe Hudson and 2019 King Mwikuta, but 2020 ATH Andy Boykin is another Troup Tiger to know for the future. The big 6-foot-3 237-pound Boykin was offered today by Kirby Smart in his office after the camp with his two teammates and head coach in the office also.

“I loved it.” Boykin said of his experience in Athens. “I’ve been dreaming about a UGA offer for my whole life. I didn’t expect it but was smiling very hard and excited. It’s great to finally have it.”

Hudson is Georgia’s top target in the 2020 class, and the Bulldogs are fighting off Alabama and Ohio State for the elite playmaker. King Mwikuta is looking hard at Georgia and Alabama at the moment with Florida State also in the mix. All three spent time in Smart’s office after the camp and are priority targets for Georgia moving forward.

 

Peach County (GA) linebacker Sergio Allen is another 2020 prospect who earned an offer from Georgia today, and will likely be a national prospect sooner than later.

“I loved my experience today, and they ended up offering me after the camp.” Allen said. “I talked with linebackers coach Glenn Schumann and he’s a really honest guy who told me where I needed to improve and told me to keep working. I talked with Kearis (Jackson) and me and him are agreed on for sure coming together to a game.”

Unlike most campers, Allen was able to walk around campus and tour the facility when he was in town.

 

Miami Northwestern (FL) cornerback Rachad Wildgoose Jr. was in town for the camp, and he has become a big target for the Bulldogs the past month. He admitted that he had a great time and that many of the coaches “showed him some love”. He’s a prospect to know in the 2018 class.

2020 linebacker Kevin Swint of Carrollton has seen his recruitment take off this spring, and Georgia was one of his first offers. He spent time with head coach Kirby Smart before the camp, and he knows he is a big target for Georgia in the 2020 class. Swint told me also spoke with coach Kevin Sherrer and Dell McGee while he was in town. Georgia is in a great spot early on for the impressive linebacker.

McEachern athlete Paris Brown was also competing in the morning session, and he is becoming one of the top 2019 running backs in Georgia. South Carolina was his first major offers, and more are on the way shortly. He left Georgia without an offer, but one down the road would not be surprising. He spent some time talking with running backs coach Dell McGee while he was on campus.

“An offer from Georgia would mean a lot because it’s a home state offer and me and my dad used to talk about Herschel Walker.”
