TODAY’S FEATURED PROSPECTS

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

ADAM ANDERSON

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: No. 2 OLB

HT, WT: 6 foot 4.5, and 214 lbs

SCHOOL: Rome High School

CITY, STATE: Rome, GA

STATUS: COMMITTED to UGA on 10/16/2017

UGA OFFER: Yes, offered on 02/20/2016

# OFFERS: 6

NEWS & NOTES: Adam Anderson has had one roller coaster ride of a recruitment. He was first committed to UGA back in August of 2016, but he de-committed from the Bulldogs eight months later on April 22nd and on the same day, he committed to LSU. Less than three months later, he de-committed from the Tigers on July 6th. Fast forward another three months, and he has re-committed back to Georgia on Oct. 16th.
 
So is there any risk of Anderson changing his mind once again? It’s doubtful. The early signing period is just a month away and spots are getting very tight for Georgia in the 2018 class. And Anderson finally seems settled with the decision he has made.
 
Anderson’s senior season has only reinforced his ranking, as he has 48 tackles, 20 tackles for loss, nine sacks, two forced fumbles, one interception, and two pass breakups through ten regular season games and two playoff games. He is up for the Player of the Year award.
 
Anderson and Rome will head to the third-round of the state of Georgia playoffs in Class 5A versus (11-1) Stars Mill this weekend.

JJ PETERSON

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: No. 1 OLB

HT, WT: 6 foot 1.5, and 210 lbs

SCHOOL: Colquitt County High School

CITY, STATE: Moultrie, GA

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: Yes.

# OFFERS: 12

NEWS & NOTES: J.J. visited UGA back on February 18th and was also on hand for Georgia’s G-Day game back on April 22nd. UGA OLB coach Kevin Sherrer visited J.J.on May 5th. Despite their efforts, the Dogs have some ground to make up here and so far, they haven’t really been able to make much headway against Alabama or Auburn. Of the two state of Alabama programs, the Crimson Tide should be considered the favorite here to land Petterson.
 
Peterson is a very athletic linebacker with some speed, which shows when he also lines up on offense for Colquitt County at WR or RB. Could play OLB or ILB at the next level.

OTIS REESE

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: LB – No. 8 OLB

HT, WT: 6 foot 4, and 206 lbs

SCHOOL: Lee County High School

CITY, STATE: Leesburg, GA

STATUS: Committed to Michigan 06/18/2016

UGA OFFER: Yes, offered on 12/07/2016

# OFFERS: 17

NEWS & NOTES: Reese was offered back at the end of last year in December by UGA. He visited Georgia in the spring in March and was back in Athens for the Bulldogs’ season opener vs. Appalachian State on Sept. 2nd. Reese has been committed to Michigan for over a year, but I’ve put him on flip watch along with a number of other recruiting analyst.
 
He would be a big-time flip for Georgia, too, as the talented Lee County football player is very much in the mold of current UGA linebacker Roquan Smith and former backers/safeties, Thomas Davis and Alec Ogletree. And if you are following the visits, Reese was in Athens for Georgia’s homecoming game versus Missouri on Oct. 14th, and he also made his second trip back to The Classic City in less than a month whe he visited on Nov. 4th for UGA’s game versus South Carolina.

CHANNING TINDALL

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: LB – No. 5 OLB

HT, WT: 6 foot 2, and 213 lbs

SCHOOL: Spring Valley High School

CITY, STATE: Columbia, SC

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: Yes, offered on 02/11/2017.

# OFFERS: 20

NEWS & NOTES: Tindall was offered back in February and visited UGA for G-Day on April 22nd. He returned to Athens, GA on the weekend of July 15th for “Kirby-Que.” Like Colquitt County’s JJ Peterson, Tindall could play either outside or inside linebacker. So what are Tindall’s top schools?
 
He hasn’t released a list, but if you follow the visits, in addition to UGA, he took unofficials to Florida, FSU, and South Carolina during the latter part of July. A number of analysts believe it is a FSU-USCe battle for Tindall, but I think his recruiting is more wide open than just those two programs. Georgia is looking to take another couple of LBs in the 2018 class in addition to Adam Anderson, and the staff likes Tindall a lot. He was in Athens for Georgia’s game versus Mississippi State on Sept. 23rd, and Tindall was back at UGA on Nov. 4th for the Bulldogs’ game versus South Carolina.
