Davidson, Sanders are 2014 WRs to watch


ATHENS, Ga. -- As Georgia closes out its 2013 recruiting class, the Bulldogs’ coaching staff is hitting the road and the film room to evaluate the next crop of talented recruits. A few offers have already gone out to some members of the class of 2014, but each week new names emerge.

We are going to take a position-by-position look at a number of the 2014 prospects whose profile pages you may want to add to your favorites. Here is a look at the cornerbacks Georgia has offered or has on its radar.

Needs: 1-2, Committed: none

Offers: Georgia has offered four wide receivers in the class of 2014. Georgia will lose Marlon Brown and Tavarres King to graduation, but expects to sign four receivers in the 2013 class. With Michael Bennett returning from an ACL injury, the Bulldogs will have decent depth at wideout and can afford to focus on just one or two players in the class of 2014.

Demarre Kitt (Tyrone, Ga./Sandy Creek) -- The ESPN Watch List wide receiver was committed to the Bulldogs for almost six months earlier this year before decommitting on Oct. 11. He indicated he wanted to reopen his recruitment to “be fair” to the teams that were recruiting him. Kitt has named USC, Georgia and Clemson as his three top schools and plans to visit all three. With teammate and class of 2013 Georgia commit Shaq Wiggins in his ear, Kitt could still wind up with the Bulldogs.

Shaquille Davidson (Gaffney, S.C./Gaffney) -- The 6-foot-1, 170-pound wideout has a number of early offers from top programs like South Carolina, North Carolina, Clemson, NC State, Wake Forest, Tennessee and Ohio State. Davidson has been moved to quarterback where he has already had two games in which he rushed for over 100 yards. The ESPN Watch List receiver has a top five of FSU, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Ohio State. He recently told DawgNation, “I love UGA, and I have loved them since A.J. Green was there.”

Krenwick Sanders (Jesup, Ga./Wayne County) -- Sanders is a quiet recruit who plays loud, having picked up four offers from Georgia, Vanderbilt, North Carolina and South Florida. He is hearing from LSU, NC State, Washington and Notre Dame. He has visited Alabama on multiple visits but says he grew up a Georgia fan. The 6-2, 185-pound junior recently said the Bulldogs stand out to him the most right now.

Moral Stephens (Perry, Fla./Taylor County) – Stephens is a big target, and the 6-3, 205-pound junior is in the crosshairs of seven schools already. Arkansas, Vanderbilt, Clemson, Florida State, Miami and Ohio State have offered the ESPN Watch List receiver.

Name to watch:

Josh Malone (Gallatin, Tenn./Station Camp) -- The 6-3, 190-pound junior lists 18 offers from the likes of Nebraska, Michigan, LSU, Notre Dame and Ohio State. Malone, an ESPN Watch List member, does not have an offer from Georgia but expects that to change when he visits in November. He will also visit Auburn as well.
