While some of the big news from the weekend came from the four commitments that the Bulldogs got, they also are setting themselves up for a great recruiting class in 2013, as well as adding a few possibilities to the 2012 class.
The offers really started flowing on Saturday, when the Bulldogs offered these 2013 recruits: WR Mike Williams, ATH/RB Tyshon Dye, and OLB/DE Kenderious Whitehead.
They also offered these 2012 OL/DL Brandon Hill and one is waiting for wide receiver Kwinton Smith as long as his grades are good enough.
We’ll start off with Hill, the 6’6”, 374 pound behemoth. As you can see, he is HUGE, yet carries his weight fairly well. Hill worked out for the Bulldogs this weekend as an offensive lineman but obviously could also play at nose guard for the Bulldogs.
Hill has good athleticism for such a big man, though he is going to have to cut some weight to legitimately play at the next level. He has massive potential if he can lose some weight yet still add strength.
Kwinton Smith has the size that all colleges covet at the wide receiver position. The 3-star recruit is listed by Scout.com at 6’5”, 195 pounds. He uses his size well and has the potential to be a pretty good player at the next level. He could move up to a 4-star at some point this season, and I think he could make an immediate impact for the Dawgs.
Mike Williams, the 2013 wide receiver, is another player that has good size and should be a top player in the South Carolina next year. He’s 6’4”, 185 pounds and has the makings of another playmaking receiver from South Carolina, sound familiar?
Not that Williams will be as good as A.J. Green, in fact I’m very sure he won’t be. An offer this early is a good sign as to how talented he is though, so I expect him to be a top recruit next year.
Chad Simmons describes Tyshon Dye with one word: explosive. The 2013 athlete will likely play running back at the next level, and has run a 4.44 40 at a well-built 6’1”, 200 pounds.
Dye is one of the top prospects in Georgia for 2013, and is one of those that is making people wonder if there will be more talent in the group than in the 2011 class of players. It’s going to be tough to do, but with guys like Dye and the next guy give it a chance.
Kenderious White may just be the top player in state for 2013. The 6’4”, 212-pound outside linebacker has good moves already, showing that he can use his long arms to keep blockers away from him as well as the athletic ability to make every play at the position.
He may not be Reuben Foster, but White has very good potential and is already a very good player that will only continue to mature physically and mentally.
Tomorrow there will be an article on some other various recruiting news and other offers.
