Georgia is still in the market for wide receivers in the class of 2017, and one of their top remaining targets looks ready to make his decision. Four star prospect Mark Webb out of Warminster, Pennsylvania’s Bishop Wood High is the cousin of recent tailback commit D’Andre Swift, and rated the #19 receiver prospect in the nation by 247Sports.
Webb will be announcing his commitment Friday night during halftime of his school’s game against visiting St. Joseph’s, led by Swift. Some might consider that a harbinger of things to come. Georgia would likely be considered the favorite here, but keep an eye out for Alabama and Penn State, both of whom have pushed hard for the 6’2, 200 pounder.
Webb is an important target for the Red and Black, who have two other commitments at receiver in the 2017 class. Pace Academy’s Trey Blount has been rising up the charts since his Bulldog commitment. St. Petersburg, Florida receiver Matt Landers was an under-the-radar prospect when he committed to the Bulldogs on June 1st. But if the big time Florida schools come calling for him, Georgia could find itself looking at low numbers at a position that’s just begging for increased production.
The ‘Dawgs still have strong shots at Alabama five star Nico Collins and Newton County standout Jeremiah Holloman, but Swift would give them another blue chip prospect with good size at a position which has been a bit of a work in progress recently. Until later . . .
