UGA offers multiple 2020 prospects

Dawg Post breaks down some of the most recent offers extended by the staff over the last few days.

Andy Boykin, DE, Troup County:

Boykin is a 2020 prospect who is about to see his recruitment explode over the next few months. At 6-foot-3 237-pounds, Boykin looks the part physically and is all muscle. The Troup County prospect stood out during Saturday morning's Kirby Smart camp, and Smart quickly extended an offer soon after. With his size and athleticism, Boykin is being recruited by Georgia so play defensive tackle, but a move to tight end down the road is possible as well. The offer meant a lot to Boykin, who called it his "dream offer."

"Ive been dreaming about a UGA offer my whole life but I didn't even expect it." Boykin said. "I was smiling very hard the whole time and it's great to finally have it."

Boykin spent some time with head coach Kirby Smart in his office with his two teammates Kobe Hudson and King Mwikuta, both of whom are priority targets for Georgia in the 2019 and 2020 class. Georgia offering Boykin early will only help their chances with him later in his recruitment.

Jamil Burroughs, DE, McEachern:

Like Boykin, Burroughs is another 2020 defensive lineman who earned an offer on Saturday after working out at the Kirby Smart camp. The 6-foot-3 296-pound rising sophomore was impressive in spring practice, and certainly has the size already to play major college football at the next level.

"The UGA program is all about hustle and hard work." Burroughs said. "I'm glad they were my first offer. UGA has always been my dream school and I'm proud to say maybe I will be a DAWG one day!"

Burroughs admitted that he's been to Athens about 15-20 times in his lifetime. One day after being offered by Georgia, South Carolina extended an offer. Burroughs is the second 2020 McEachern prospect to earn a Georgia offer, joining athlete Jordon Simmons who was offered a few weeks ago.

Myles Murphy, DE/LB, Hillgrove:

Murphy was the third 2020 defender to receiver a Georgia offer this past weekend. Listed at 6-foot-5 240-pounds, Murphy stood out easily in the group he was with, and showed great footwork in drills for someone his size. He is a versatile player who played quite a bit his freshman season, showing quickness off the ball and he ability to stop the run. He uses his hands well to get off blocks and does a nice job of not missing tackles at the line of scrimmage. Georgia was the first to offer Murphy, but other schools will likely pull the trigger soon.

Jacorey Brooks, WR, Booker T. Washington

Only a 2021 prospect, the Bulldogs extended an offer yesterday to south Florida native Jacorey Brooks, and outstanding 8th grader who has made a name for himself playing for his 7-on-7 team in Miami. Tennessee was the first to offer the elite prospect, and many more will start coming as well. Brroks will play at Booker T. Washington High School as a freshman next season. He has great speed and size already at 6-foot-3 165-pounds, and will be a prospect o know moving forward.
