Recruiting Recap 1/13

Well, I haven’t done a recruiting recap in a while. After doing it almost every day of 2020, I just couldn’t hit a stride in 2021 and the coverage was spotty at best. Now that All-State is over with, and I’ve had some time to reflect on where I want to take Recruit Georgia in 2022, I’ve decided that the Recruiting Recaps need to come back.

So with all of that said, we have all of yesterday’s offers that I could gather, plus a player who is seeing their heating up (if applicable) and of course our sleeper of the day. Feel free to leave a comment down below for any further suggestions on how I can improve my coverage of the state of Georgia – David

Jacquez McGowan
2022 Valdosta

McGowan has been a leading tackler the last few years in 6A. He has a solid motor coming from the backside, mostly playing off the edge where his quickness to get around blocks is very effective against screen passes. Definitely like the hustle. McGowan is a solid tackler, and mostly lines up secure tackles with good consistency, and he is not looking for shoulder checks and poor quality tackle attempts in general. He does an excellent job of wrapping up in the thighs and has good instincts. Always pursuing the football from the backside helps the 2022 clean up a lot of tackles, and his combo of speed and desire show out on film. He is a natural getting around blocks but has trouble getting off if he is engaged with a bigger blocker. Improving his strength will help certainly, but still impressive seeing the agility and flexibility to get around blockers. McGowan does have a long-running stride that covers good ground, and that makes him a threat blitzing. His tackles for a loss and sacks confirm that. We would like to see him more in coverage, right now he is almost always getting downhill into the backfield and his frame is a good fit at MIKE at the next level, granted he does have the versatility to play out on the edge in obvious running plays vs a spread. Senior year he finished with 34 tackles for a loss and 12 sacks on the season including 20 QB hurries. He is definitely showing more strength at the point of attack when engaging with bigger blockers too. McGowan has proven to be one of the more consistent defenders the last few years in Georgia, and though he stands at 6’2″, he still weighs under or around 200 lbs. – he should be able to fill out and be a legit college backer at the next level but it might take some time. His speed and agility alone should grab the attention of FCS and DII programs alone.
