Arik Gilbert is the top athlete we have seen for the Class of 2020 so far, and his offers are beginning to reflect those of an elite recruit. The powerful athlete was offered by Michigan earlier this week, and the Wolverines join teams like UGA, Alabama, South Carolina, UNC and Tennessee.

The Next Gen and FBU All-American is a physically impressive player. He stands 6’4″ and weighs already 220 pounds. Utterly amazing for an athlete who has just finished up his first semester of high school.
It will be interesting to see the young athlete develop over the coming years. He is a tremendous blocker, but we also see tremendous potential for him to become a defensive end at the next level. One thing is for certain, Gilbert is going to have double-digit Power 5 offers very soon, so stay tuned to @RecruitGeorgia on Twitter to hear the latest about the versatile freshman athlete from Woodward Academy.
