TODAY’S FEATURED PROSPECTS
Rico Powers Jr.
HT, WT: 6-2 180
SCHOOL: Benedictine Military School
CITY, STATE: Savannah, Georgia
# OF OFFERS: 5 offers
UGA OFFER: Yes, February 1, 2018
Rico Powers Jr. is a four-star wide receiver from Savannah Georgia. He stands at 6-2 180 pounds and ranks as the No. 46 WR and the No. 23 2020 Georgia prospect. Powers Jr. holds five offers with the latest coming from South Carolina State on March 1. It appears that Georgia’s in the lead for now, but its still early for this receiver. He visited back on March 24 with his family.
Powers Jr. is quick and sees the field well. He’s got a nice set of hands and his routes look crisp for a rising junior. Once Powers Jr. breaks a tackle and gets into open field its over. His speed stands out to me a lot. Powers Jr is still growing as a receiver and has some technical things to work on but he’s a solid prospect from Savannah Georgia. He could work on his blocking and define his routes a little more, but it’ll come with age.

# OF OFFERS: 12 offers
UGA OFFER: Yes, March 31, 2018
Jadon Jackson is a three-star wide receiver from Centerton, Arkansas. He stands at 6-0 175 pounds and ranks as the No. 55 WR and the No. 5 2019 prospect in Arkansas. Jackson holds 12 offers with the latest coming from Georgia on April 6. HIs recruitment appears wide open and seems like a diamond in the rough. According to one of the Bulldawg Illustrated’s board members, Nick Saban visited him personally. If that doesn’t say sleeper, I don’t know what does.
Jackson has a nice size to him. He’s thick bodied and isn’t afraid to take a hit. His speed and route running impress me. Jackson could of course work on his routes, as they seem a little lackluster sometimes. However, he can go up and make nice catches. Jackson’s got a lot of promise and just needs the right development at the next level. He’s raw and just needs a little weight on him and some technical work and he’ll shine at the next level.
