TODAY’S FEATURED PROSPECTS

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

BENNEY CHUKWU

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: FB

HT, WT: 5 foot 10, and 209 lbs

SCHOOL: Lovejoy High School

CITY, STATE: Lovejoy, GA

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: N/A

# OFFERS: N/A

NEWS & NOTES: One reason Lovejoy’s senior RB, Zion Custis, ran for nearly 2,000 yards and averaged over 10 yards per carry was due in part to Benney Chukwu helping to lead the way for No. 2. Benny catches the ball well out of the backfield even though he doesn’t get a lot of opportunities to do so and is stout at the point of attack. He also plays some at MLB for Lovejoy, and I always like full backs who also have played at LB. It tells me they enjoy hitting and if a team is going to use a FB as one of their 11 players on the field, you need a guy who does not shy away from contact.
 
Benny would need to add some weight to his frame be an effective blocker in the SEC, but he has shown the willingness, effort, and ability in the weight room to get bigger and stronger. From his junior to senior season he added on 15 to 20 lbs of muscle and increased his bench, squat, and power clean lifts by over 45 lbs each. He would make a nice addition to Georgia’s walk-on program and could join a list of hard-nosed, blue caller Bulldog FBs that have helped paved the way for Georgia tailbacks through the years.

MYLES FOGLE

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: FB

HT, WT: 6 foot 2, and 240 lbs

SCHOOL: Norcross High School

CITY, STATE: Norcross, GA

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: N/A

# OFFERS: N/A

NEWS & NOTES: Fogle plays on the o-line for Norcross but would move to FB at the FBS college level. He has the size and strength to be a capable lead blocker in the SEC. Fogle visited UGA for the Dogs 24-10 win over South Carolina on Nov. 4th.

MICHAEL MAGDA

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: RB – FB

HT, WT: 6 foot 0, and 230 lbs

SCHOOL: Lanier High School

CITY, STATE: Sugar Hill, GA

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: N/A.

# OFFERS: N/A

NEWS & NOTES: Michael plays at OG and at FB for Lanier High School; so, blocking is not new to him. He’ll also line up at MLB on defense. And he has that nasty, ‘crazy’ streak you like to see in a FB (or a MLB) where he looks to put his hat on a player at full speed no matter who is in his way. He is smart as a whip to boot.

POSITION: FB

HT, WT: 6 foot 0, and 250 lbs

SCHOOL: Woodlawn High School

CITY, STATE: Birmingham, AL

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: N/A

# OFFERS: N/A

NEWS & NOTES: Kaloeb Whisenant plays a number of different positions for Woodlawn that include at FB on offense and at DT and MLB on defense. At 6 foot 0, and 250 lbs, he would be an ideal body type for an SEC full back. Kaloeb visited Georgia for the Bulldogs game versus Missouri on Oct. 14th.
