Spring is right around the corner, and in fact, spring break is here. However, the University of Georgia’s new coaching staff isn’t taking any breaks and has made two new offers to class of 2017 prospects Jonathan Gavin and Marco Wilson.
Both offers came at the first of the week on Monday, March 7th, and both are to defensive players from the state of Florida.
Jonathan Gavin is a 6 foot 4 and 220 lbs defensive end / outside linebacker prospect out of Oxbridge Academy. As a junior last year, Gavin had 93 tackles as well as six forced fumbles and five quarterback sacks for the Trojans out of Lake Worth, Florida. After his junior high school football season, he transferred to Oxbridge Academy in West Palm Beach, Florida where he plans to play his senior season for the ThunderWolves. Gavin was named to the 2015 Palm Beach Post All-Area First Team defense, and he won the Defensive Line MVP at The Opening Miami Regional held on March 6th at American Heritage High School.
