Names To Know in UGA Recruiting:

Dawg Post takes a look at a few names to know as it relates to UGA recruiting.

One peach state prospect that Georgia is trending with is 2019 athlete Trezman Marshall of Clinch County (GA). The 6-foot-1 235-pound south Georgia native played on both sides of the ball last season as a sophomore, and has picked up offers from Georgia, Alabama, Clemson, Florida, Florida State and many more. On offense he's a bruising running back who powers through defenders and has the ability to carry a team on his back. He shows good balance and ball skills as well when he's not trucking linebackers. On defense, Marshall is an outstanding linebacker who tackles well and drives through the ball carrier. He shows good instincts and constantly finds his way into the backfield. Marshall is a quiet kid, but many feel like Georgia is the front runner for one of the top overall athletes in the 2019 class.

While Georgia will be going all out for Harrison (GA) quarterback Justin Fields this summer, Roswell (GA) quarterback Cordel Littlejohn is a prospect to know if Fields decides to play somewhere other than Georgia. Littlejohn originally played high school ball in North Carolina where he put up video game-like numbers, but has transferred to the metro Atlanta area for his senior year. He camped at Georgia last weekend to throw with the coaches, and he is on the staff's radar, but he has not been extended an offer as of today. He still needs to work on his overall mechanics and accuracy, but Littlejohn is a dynamic player who can be a threat with his legs as a dual threat type quarterback. If Georgia misses on Fields, the staff will likely give Littlejohn a closer look this fall.

Another 2018 prospect to know is Hillgrove (GA) tight end/wide receiver Chigoziem Okonkwo. The 6-foot-3 220-pound Powder Springs native has had a big spring, impressing at multiple camps in the last couple months.He is the go-to guy in Hillgrove's offense, and always comes up with a big play when needed. He has good size, but still has excellent balance and big play ability. He shows good hands, and is a mismatch for smaller defensive backs. IT looks like the Georgia staff has multiple targets higher on their board, but Okonkwo is certainly a guy the staff knows all about. If their top targets decide to go elsewhere, an offer to Okonkwo down the road would not be surprising. 

Archer (GA) Jaylin Phillips is becoming one of the top defensive back prospects in Georgia for the 2019 class. South Carolina, Oregon, Maryland, Colorado, Vanderbilt and many others have offered so far, and Georgia will likely offer down the road. Phillips has good size at 6-foot-2 200-pounds and will likely play safety at the next level. Phillips has been to Clemson multiple times in the last two months, and the Tigers could be close to offering. The 2019 group is loaded with impressive DBs, and Phillips is one of the best.
