UGA football news: Dawgs digging in on another Florida Gators target

Some recruiting UGA football news shows that the Georgia Bulldogs have set their sites on yet another target the Florida Gators would like to get.

The latest in the world of UGA football news is on a recruiting target who isn’t even rated yet, but already has programs around the country showing a lot of interest, including the Bulldogs’ biggest rival, Florida.

Shone Washington (nicknamed, “Malice”) is a 6-foot-4, 290-pound defensive tackle who would be a member of the 2022 recruiting class. Currently he’s not rated by any of the national recruiting services, but his on-field play has gotten a lot of attention.

The New Orleans native already has offers from Alabama, LSU, Memphis, Mississippi State and has drawn a lot of interest from Dan Mullen and the Florida Gators. The offer from Georgia comes on the heels of the Gators offer.

Georgia could have a bit of an edge over the Gators once the rubber meets the road in this impressive player’s recruiting cycle. Florida looks to be loaded (if not overloaded) with defensive tackles on their roster leading into 2022, and Sedrick Van Pran, a 4-star center in Georgia’s 2020 class was a classmate of Washington at Warren Easton High School.

With size and speed already rivaling that of some college defensive linemen, Washington helped lead John Ehret in Marrero, La. to the Louisiana Class 5A state semifinals. He then sat out his sophomore year due to transfer rules when moving to Warren Easton.

Pulling what looks to be a top defensive lineman out of the state of Louisiana and LSU would be a huge recruiting coup for Kirby Smart and his staff. Still a long way to go in the process on this one though.
