Recruiting Recap 1/25

Welcome to another edition of the Recruiting Recap! It’s been a minute, we had to crawl back into our film room the last few weeks, but are back at doing recaps for the rest of the offseason. So buckle up, there is not a better resource for the daily recruiting movements around the state of Georgia. We cover offers, commitments, decommits, transfer portal, players who are heating up, and of course our sleeper of the day!

I know some of y’all have been looking at my All-State picks, so please check out this link if you have not yet. Tons of recruits (probably close to 800 picked) that I think are the best players across all 8 classifications here in the state of Georgia. So let’s get into it! – David

Heating Up

Dijmon Wheeler
2022 Colquitt Co.

Towards the end of last season, Wheeler really showed his versatility being trusted into a QB role after both the starter and backup went out, but before that Wheeler was the most consistent receiver at Colquitt County. Wheeler is dangerous returning punts, or just catching a short pass; regardless of how he receives the football, the quick receiver is able to escape out of tackles and make things happen. He added nearly 20 lbs. of muscle in the last year and now around 180. Wheeler is going to accumulate offers this offseason. Western Kentucky, Charlotte, Minnesota, and Georgia State all offered in the last 3 days.

Sleeper of the Day

Jayden Hector
2021 Redan

Hector definitely has a long athletic frame that pops on film. He has a long-running stride. Shows good ball skills going up for contested jump ball passes nabbing at least one last fall, and getting his hands on a few more. Hector has solid acceleration and does a pretty good job of jumping a pass. Uses his hands well in press coverage, looks like his length is legit and he utilizes that well in coverage knocking the receiver off his route within the first 5 yards. Hector does need to improve his tackling – he uses his arms too much. He hops while in coverage instead of sliding his feet. Consistency needs to continue to improve. Hector is a boundary corner without the physicality really needed. At 6’2″ and 182 lbs., Hector shows very good upside and given a little more time in the weight room he should fill out to be 200 lbs. Hector sports a 3.0 GPA, he also is a track athlete and has not received an offer lately, so definitely a player slipping thru the crack, and D1 and D2 programs definitely need to check him out.
