RASHOD BATEMAN

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: No. 122 WR

HT, WT: 6 foot 1.5, and 180 lbs

SCHOOL: Tift County High School

CITY, STATE: Tifton, GA

STATUS: COMMITTED TO MINNESOTA 06/12/2017

UGA OFFER: No.

# OFFERS: 17

NEWS & NOTES: Bateman has been one of the top performers at wide receiver so far in this 2017 high school football season in the Peach State. The class of 2018 senior had 7 catches for 154 yards and two touchdowns in Tift County’s 33-31 win over the No. 3 team in Class 6A, Coffee County, last Friday. On the year, Bateman has 35 receptions for 796 yards and 11 touchdowns, averaging nearly 23 yards per catch.

So why hasn’t Bateman received more offers and exposure compared to some of the other wideouts in the state? That is somewhat of a head-scratcher; although, he does have over 17 scholarship offers. However, none from any of the SEC schools, including UGA. It isn’t like Bateman was an unknown his junior year as he turned in a solid 56 catch, 825 receiving yards, and 5 touchdown performance.

Tift County and Bateman hit the road to take on Fitzgerald High School and go for their 7th win of the season tonight.

MATTHEW HILL

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: No. 32 WR

HT, WT: 6 foot 2, and 185 lbs

SCHOOL: Brookwood High School

CITY, STATE: Snellville, GA

STATUS: COMMITTED TO AUBARN 08/17/2017

UGA OFFER: Yes, offered on September 27th.

# OFFERS: 17

NEWS & NOTES: The Georgia coaching staff just offered M. Hill who committed to Auburn back in August, just over a month ago. The 6 foot 2, and 185 lbs class of 2018 wide receiver out of Brookwood is another talented Peach State wide receiver, and there are a number of recruiting gurus that are wondering why it took so long for UGA to get Hill an offer. Do the Dogs have a shot at flipping Hill? While anything is possible till that NLI is signed, sealed and delivered, I would have to consider it a long shot. Plus, there is the question on how many receivers Georgia will take in the 2018 recruiting class?

Brookwood and Hill have reeled off 3 straight wins in a row after losing their first 2 games of the season. They are off this weekend and will be back in action on October 6th on the road in Norcross, GA taking on Meadowcreek.

SCHOOL: IMG Academy, Bradenton, FL

STATUS: Undeclared

# OFFERS: 8

NEWS & NOTES: Jordan is a big, tall receiver that the Dogs offered back in the spring and is not unlike Georgia’s 2017 signee Matt Landers. As of right now, it looks like a three school race for Jordan between the Bulldogs, GT, and Tennessee.

CONNOR RICE

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: WR

HT, WT: 5 foot 11, and 190 lbs

SCHOOL: North Murray High School

CITY, STATE: Chatsworth, GA

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: No.

# OFFERS: N/A

NEWS & NOTES: Rice has 31 receptions for 569 yards and 11 touchdowns so far this yearwhich puts him in the top 3 in the state of Georgia in receiving yards and tied with Rashod Bateman and Ty King for most receiving touchdowns headed into week 7 of the 2017 season. Rice doesn’t have a lot of offers, yet, but that could change, as he is also a good student off the field with around a 3.7 GPA. The North Murray wideout visited UGA back in the spring for Georgia’s G-Day game.

North Murray High School and Rice are 2-3 on the year and will travel to Chatsworth, GA to tak on Murray County High School tonight.
