Today on Bulldawg Illustrated’s UGA Recruiting Daily we look at Georgia’s 2018 defensive back recruiting focusing once again on the cornerbacks and four 2018 prospects.

 

Back on the 22nd of October, we took at look at Tyson Campbell, Gilbert Frierson, Nadab Joseph, and Christian Tutt, CLICK HERE if you missed it. We will look in on Tyson Campbell again and then feature three CBs we haven’t looked at in a few months – Steven Gilmore Jr., Ken Montgomery Jr., and Divaad Wilson.

 

Georgia still has three DBs committed for 2018 with safeties Aaron Brule and Rachad Wildgoose, Jr. and cornerback Chris Smith, and although the Bulldogs did sign 7 DBs in 2017 (technically 8 since WR Mark Webb, Jr. was switched over to defense and CB), I expect the UGA coaching staff to still take 4 in this recruiting class. Adding a CB makes sense as that 4th DB.

TODAY’S FEATURED PROSPECTS

If position ranking is noted, it is 247 Sports latest composite ranking of the player.
 

TYSON CAMPBELL

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: DB – No. 3 CB

HT, WT: 6 foot 2.5, and 181 lbs

SCHOOL: American Heritage High School

CITY, STATE: Plantation, FL

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: Yes, offered on 10/31/2015.

# OFFERS: 22

NEWS & NOTES: Campbell is a phenomenal CB that the previous Bulldog coaching staff offered and the current staff has continued to recruit. He visited UGA over the summer on July 20th and also visited Clemson and Alabama to close out the month of July. His recruitment is wide open at the moment, but Georgia could have a shot here as the Dogs are in Campbell’s top five: Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Miami and Ohio State. Campbell recently visited the University of Miami on October 1st. There are a lot of predictions to Alabama and Miami as of late, but I think the Bulldogs have really impressed Campbell over the last couple of months. This is definitely one prospect to keep an eye on.

STEVEN GILMORE, JR.

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: DB – No. 109 CB

HT, WT: 5 foot 10, and 160 lbs

SCHOOL: South Pointe High School

CITY, STATE: Rock Hill, SC

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: Yes, offered on 03/06/2017.

# OFFERS: 9

NEWS & NOTES: Gilmore was offered by the Georgia coaching staff back in March. He isn’t the prototypical DB that Kirby Smart and Mel Tucker typically have been going after at 5 foot 10 and 160 lbs, but he is a play maker. And Gilmore likes the Bulldogds. He put UGA in his top 4 back on July 12th alogn with Louisville, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Since then, his recruitment has been pretty low key, but he appears to be leaning towards North and South Carolina with the Tarheels I would consider the front runner here.

NEWS & NOTES: The Georgia coaching staff offered Montgomery back in May. Over the summer, on July 27th, he committed to UCLA but decided to reopen up his recruiting process and de-committed from the Bruins on Tuesday, Oct. 31st. Montgomery is scheduled to take an official visit to Oklahoma on the weekend of Nov. 11th. Montgomery has great size and length as well as a solid skill set for a lock-down CB, which is one reason he has over 41 scholarship offers.
