Elite UGA targets Adam Anderson and Trey Hill added star power to weekend

Trey Hill-UGA recruiting
Offensive guard Trey Hill was among the 4- and 5-star recruits to visit Athens, Ga., last weekend.

The amount of talent on hand for Georgia’s 31-3 win over Mississippi State was fairly robust. Let’s just say that UGA football drew the big names last Saturday.

Bright future, perhaps? Maybe that’s why the nation’s No. 2 offensive guard, Trey Hill, wore some dark sunglasses at the Mississippi State game. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)

The star count was so big that DawgNation split its photo reels into two collections.

The first one was posted with the Intel on Monday morning.

That effort was just for the 5-star players. That 5-star count included eight prospects from 2018 and 2019 on Saturday night. 

The second half showcases a super-sized collection of talent in its own right.

It is worth another look to show the massive amount of talent that was on hand.

There might not be another group of visitors like this one to show up for some time.

Or it could become the norm for the way Georgia pulls in the recruits for a big game going forward. We shall see.

The amount of talent on hand was so staggering that even if all eight of those 5-stars were removed from the visitors list, the Bulldogs still would have hosted the following 4-star recruits. Rankings are from the 247Sports composite:

  • Trey Hill: No. 2 offensive guard and No. 34 overall prospect, 2018 (undecided)
  • James Cook: No. 3 running back and No. 35 overall prospect, 2018 (undecided)
  • Adam Anderson: No. 2 outside linebacker and No. 43 overall prospect, 2018 (undecided)
  • Channing Tindall: No. 5 outside linebacker and No. 121 overall prospect, 2018 (undecided)
  • Azeez Ojulari: No. 6 weakside defensive end and No. 115 overall prospect, 2018 (UGA commit)
  • Jaylen “Tank” McCollough: No. 3 safety and the No. 36 overall prospect, 2019 (undecided)
  • Keiondre Jones: No. 3 offensive guard and No. 46 overall prospect, 2019 (undecided)
  • Wanya Morris: No. 5 offensive tackle and No. 53 overall prospect, 2019 (Florida State commit)
  • Travon Walker: No. 5 defensive tackle and No. 58 overall prospect, 2019 (undecided)
  • King Mwikuta: No. 5 outside linebacker and No. 70 overall prospect, 2019 (undecided)
  • Kearis Jackson: No. 25 wide receiver and No. 127 overall prospect, 2019 (UGA commit)
  • Joseph Charleston: No. 10 safety and the No. 148 overall prospect, 2019 (undecided)
  • Warren McClendon: No. 21 offensive tackle and No. 168 overall prospect, 2019 (undecided)
  • Rashad Cheney Jr: No. 11 defensive tackle and No. 185 overall prospect, 2019 (UGA commit)
  • J.D. Bertrand: No. 17 outside linebacker and No. 207 overall prospect, 2019 (UGA commit)
  • Kenyatta Watson II: No. 17 safety and the No. 277 overall prospect for 2019 (Florida State commit)

Let’s not forget the talent on hand with Georgia offers from the Class of 2020 as well. (The rankings are from 247Sports). Those players included:

  • Arik Gilbert: No. 2 athlete and No. 18 overall prospect (undecided)
  • Cartavious “Tank” Bigsby: No. 3 athlete and No. 27 overall prospect (undecided)
  • Kevin Swint: No. 6 outside linebacker and No. 58 overall prospect (undecided)
  • Sergio Allen: No. 7 defensive end and No. 90 overall prospect (undecided)

Check out the photos below. They follow the outline of all the prospects who were named in these bullet points.

Yeah, that’s a lot of bullets.

Five-star running back Zamir White, KJ Henry and Trey Hill seem as if they know each other very well. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)


Four-star RB James Cook is rated as a 5-star prospect by some websites. He was at UGA for his first official visit. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)


Jaylen McCollough has picked up the nickname ‘Tank’ for his on-field exploits. It is deserved. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)


Adam Anderson is one of Georgia’s top remaining targets for 2018. He previously committed to both Georgia and LSU. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)


Keiondre Jones rates as the nation’s No. 3 offensive guard and No. 46 overall prospect for 2019. Clemson is a team to watch for here. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)


Four-star offensive tackle Wanya Morris is currently committed to Florida State. Georgia line coach Sam Pittman has made him a priority. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)


Four-star defensive tackle Travon Walker comes from the same high school program that sent David Marshall to UGA. He is also an outstaning basketball player who won a state championship with his varsity team in 2016-17. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)


Four-star outside linebacker King Mwikuta’s wristbands might not tell the whole story. His decision could come down to Alabama and Georgia. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)


Four-star outside linebacker Azeez Ojulari is already committed to UGA. He chose the Bulldogs on Aug. 17.  (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)


Channing Tindall attends Spring Valley High School in South Carolina. He’s rated as the nation’s No 5 outside linebacker prospect for 2018, but projects inside at UGA. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)


Kearis Jackson is one of Georgia’s top recruiters in the Class of 2018. He is close with 5-star QB target Justin Fields. He ranks as the nation’s No. 25 WR this year but somehow won the state title in the shot put in the spring. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)


Milton safety Joseph Charleston isn’t looking to wait until his senior year to make his college decision. The nation’s No. 10 safety for 2019 has Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Ohio State and Tennessee in his top 5. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)


Four-star offensive tackle Warren McClendon was spotted by DawgNation as a high school freshman. That’s when he appeared to be even more polished a prospect than high school junior and future U.S. Army All-American D’antne Demery at Brunswick High School. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)


Four-star UGA commit Rashad Cheney Jr. sounds very pleased with how Georgia’s defensive line is playing and also with his commitment to the home-state school. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)

Marietta’s Arik Gilbert could be a prized defensive end, tight end or outside linebacker recruit in the Class of 2020. The 6-foot-5, 235-pound player rates as a top 20 prospect in his class. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)


Cartavious ‘Tank’ Bigsby looks like the next elite running back prospect in the state of Georgia. He rates as the nation’s No. 3 athlete for 2020 and is a clear 5-star candidate going forward. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)


Carrollton, Ga., sophomore Kevin Swint rates as the nation’s No. 6 outside linebacker for 2020. He’s going to wind up ranked a lot higher than that. He has said he will not commit to any school, but rather sign with his program of choice on his National Signing Day. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)


Four-star defensive end/linebacker hybrid Sergio Allen comes from a strong Peach County program in Middle Georgia. He, like the other 2020 recruits on this list, already has an offer from UGA. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)


Peach County offensive tackle Terrence Ferguson isn’t a known name in the Class of 2021 yet, but he will wind up being one of the nation’s top 10 offensive tackles in his class. At least. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)


Owen Condon, a 3-star Georgia offensive tackle commit for 2018, also was at Georgia on Saturday. He is from Oklahoma. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)
