TODAY’S FEATURED PROSPECTS

 

Rico Powers Jr.

CLASS: 2020
POSITION: WR
HT, WT: 6-2 180 
SCHOOL: Benedictine Military School
CITY, STATE: Savannah, Georgia 
STATUS: Undeclared 
# OF OFFERS: 7 offers  
UGA OFFER:  Yes, February 1, 2018
NEWS:
Rico Powers Jr. is a four-star wide receiver from Savannah Georgia. He stands at 6-2 180 pounds and ranks as the No. 30 WR and the No. 22 2020 Georgia prospect. Powers Jr. holds seven offers with the latest coming from Colorado State on May 21. Kentucky offered on May 4.  It appears that Georgia’s in the lead for now, but its still early for this receiver. He visited back on March 24 with his family.
Powers Jr. is quick and sees the field well. He’s got a nice set of hands and his routes look crisp for a rising junior. Once Powers Jr. breaks a tackle and gets into open field its over. His speed stands out to me a lot. Powers Jr is still growing as a receiver and has some technical things to work on but he’s a solid prospect from Savannah Georgia. He could work on his blocking and define his routes a little more, but it’ll come with age.

Jadon Jackson

CLASS: 2019
POSITION: WR
HT, WT: 6-0 175
SCHOOL:  Bentonville West High Schoo
CITY, STATE: Centerton, Arkansas
STATUS: Undeclared
# OF OFFERS: 14 offers
UGA OFFER: Yes, April 11, 2018
NEWS:
Jadon Jackson is a three-star wide receiver from Centerton, Arkansas.  He stands at 6-0 175 pounds and ranks as the No. 55 WR and the No. 5 2019 prospect in Arkansas. Jackson holds 14 offers with the latest coming from Auburn on April 24. He visited Arkansas on May 5, Ole Miss on June 8 and Auburn on June 9. On June 24, Jackson released a top five. The top five included Arkansas, Auburn, Ole Miss, Missouri, and Oklahoma State. Despite releasing a top five he put on his Twitter that his recruitment will remain open.
Jackson has a nice size to him. He’s thick bodied and isn’t afraid to take a hit. His speed and route running impress me. Jackson could of course work on his routes, as they seem a little lackluster sometimes. However, he can go up and make nice catches. Jackson’s got a lot of promise and just needs the right development at the next level. He’s raw and just needs a little weight on him and some technical work and he’ll shine at the next level.
