DANIEL FAALELE

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: OL – No. 36 OT

HT, WT: 6 foot 8.5, and 396 lbs

SCHOOL: IMG Academy, Bradenton, FL

CITY, STATE: From Melbourne, Australia

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: Yes, offered on 01/24/2017.

# OFFERS: 21

NEWS & NOTES: UGA offered Faalele back in January, one of the first 8 programs to do so, and he visited UGA back in the spring on March 3rd. Faalele participated in Nike the Opening Finals over the summer, and he took an official visit to UGA for the Bulldogs’ homecoming game versus Missouri on Oct. 14th. He also took an official visit to Alabamam on Nov. 17th. From his tape, you can see his potential because of his size, but he is still very raw, even more so than Ben Cleveland was coming out of high school.

TREY HILL

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: OL – No. 2 OG

HT, WT: 6 foot 3.25, and 346 lbs

SCHOOL: Houston County High School

CITY, STATE: Warner Robins, GA

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: Yes, offered on 06/03/2016.

NEWS & NOTES: Hill has held an offer from the Bulldogs for over a year, and like fellow Peach State big man Jamaree Salyer, is one of the top OGs in the 2018 recruiting class. Who else has the Houston County prospect’s attention?
 
Hill visited Auburn twice over the summer and FSU has also made a big push for Hill before the Seminoles’ season went into the tank. Hill was at Kearis Jackson’s family BBQ in Fort Valley, GA at Jackson’s commitment announcement on August 19th. Since football season started, he has been back to visit Auburn on an unofficial on Sept. 2nd and then Florida on Sep. 16th.
 
Hill has also been to visit UGA about as much as Auburn. He visited Athens on Sept. 23rd for the Mississippi State game and again on Oct. 14th for Georgia’s homecoming game versus Missouri. He most recently visited the Bulldogs on Nov. 4th for their 24-10 over South Carolina on Nov. 4th. He took a visit to Auburn on Nov. 11th for the Tigers’ big upset win over Georgia, and he was back at the Barn for an official over the weekend for the Tigers’ game versus Alabama in the Iron Bowl.
 
It looks like this big recruiting battle for Hill is between Auburn and UGA. And Georgia has a limited number of spots. I still think UGA is not out of it here. The Dogs have a lot of recruiting momentum despite the loss to Auburn with wins over Kentucky and GT, and his last several visits to Athens have all been as good as the Auburn visits and made impressions on the Houston County big man. I usually don’t put as much stock in winning games when it comes to recruiting, but it definitely can make an impact when the recruiting battle is so close between schools like Auburn and Georgia; so the SEC Championship game could be big in more ways than one.
 
It also cannot hurt that his former high school teammate, quarterback Jake Fromm, is starting for Georgia right now.

CADE MAYS

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: OL – No. 2 OT

HT, WT: 6 foot 6, and 327 lbs

SCHOOL: Knoxville Catholic High School

CITY, STATE: Knoxville, TN

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: Yes.

# OFFERS: 14

NEWS & NOTES: Cade Mays had been committed to Tennessee since July of 2015 but started looking around at other programs with the rumor mill a buzz of Volunteer Head Coach Butch Jones being fired. Then on Nov. 7th, he decided to officially de-committ from Tennessee. He does hold an offer from Georgia and took an unofficial to UGA on Nov. 4th for the South Carolina game, just three days before he de-committed. Cade also plans to be back to UGA for an official visit on Dec. 15th, which will be his fifth and final OV. He took officials to Ohio State on Nov. 11th, Clemson on Nov. 18th, and to over the weekend at Tennessee on Nov. 25th. Mays plans to take an official visit to Notre Dame on Dec. 8th before his visit to Georgia.

JAMAREE SALYER

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: OL – No. 1 OG

HT, WT: 6 foot 4, and 342 lbs

SCHOOL: Pace Academy

CITY, STATE: Atlanta, GA

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: Yes, offered on 05/07/2015

NEWS & NOTES: Salyer is another talented Peach State offensive lineman in the 2018 class. He is the No. 1 OG overall and the No. 3 player from the state of Georgia, No. 7 overall nationally. Many analysts consider him a generational type talent on the O-line. He has held an offer from Georgia for over 2 years.
 
Since September, I have mentioned that it looked like it was a Georgia vs. Clemson battle for Salyer, and in an interview with Rivals that has been picked up by other media outlets like Fanbuzz.com, Salyer confirmed that his top two schools are UGA and Clemson. So how much of a battle is it for Salyer between the Tigers an the Bulldogs?
 
As of right now, I think Georgia is a heavy favorite to land Salyer. He has visited UGA at least three times this fall which included the Bulldogs’ season opener versus Appalachian State on Sept. 2nd and again on Sept. 23rd for the Mississippi State game. He was also back in Athens for the Bulldogs’ Nov. 4th game versus South Carolina on an unofficial visit. Salyer plans to announce his decision after the high school football season and before Christmas during the early signing period in December.
