Offensive targets for 2014

A number of recruits remain on Georgia's board for the 2013 class, but that hasn't stopped the Bulldog coaching staff from getting started on 2014.

Inside is the October breakdown of the Bulldogs' junior targets on the offensive side of the football.

Quarterback

Georgia has yet to extend and offer to a 2014 quarterback prospect, and at this point, it seems unlikely that an offer will go out with Hutson Mason, Christian LeMay, Faton Bauta, and Brice Ramsey likely to be on the roster in 2014.Running back

Stanley Williams (Walton Academy) - Williams is currently a Georgia commitment, but has been looking around for a few months now. Those close to him say he is likely to stick with his commitment as long as Georgia continues to recruit him. The junior speedster has steadily added mass the last couple of years, and is close to, if not, 200 pounds right now.

Adam Choice (Thomas County Central) - Choice is much like Williams in his build, but is more of a slashing style runner with some power. Choice recently spoke to Rivals.com and it doesn't appear that any school is standing out for him at this time. Choice's brother, Tashard, played at Georgia Tech, and so did his cousin, Joe Burns. He currently holds offers from Georgia Tech, Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee.

Myles Autry (Norcross) - Autry is likely the most explosive and electric junior in the Peach State. He needs to increase his mass as he only weighs around 175 pounds at this time, but he is special in space. Right now, he projects as an all-purpose back that can split out as a receiver and help in the return game. He was offered by Ohio State yesterday, and holds nine offers total. Autry was in Athens a couple of weeks ago for the Tennessee game.

Sony Michel (American Heritage; Plantation, Fla.) - Michel has been to Athens on a couple of occasions in the last few months and visited most recently for the Tennessee game. Michel is already one of the most highly sought after recruits in the 2014 class, and has named Georgia as one of the teams that is very high on his list. Michel has an excellent frame and will likely grow into an explosive every down back at the next level.

T.J. Harrell (Tampa Catholic; Tampa, Fla.) - Harrell is listed as a safety, but Georgia is recruiting him as a running back. At 6-foot-1, 210 pounds, Harrell is Georgia's lone target that would be considered a "big back." Harrell is being recruited by a number of other programs as a safety, so it will be interesting to see what position he prefers at the next level.

Wide Receiver

Demarre Kitt (Sandy Creek) - Kitt is hands down the top wide receiver in Georgia for the 2014 class, and would compete for that spot regardless of class. He is currently committed to UGA, but like Williams, Kitt is also exploring his options. Kitt has gotten bigger and stronger over the last year, and is currently 6-foot-1, 195 pounds. The star junior is very polished for a high school wide receiver, and has an excellent understanding of how to play the position.

• Shaquille Davidson (Gaffney; Gaffney, S.C.) - Davidson is coming off a knee injury that shortened his sophomore season, but has had a solid junior campaign so far. He has visited South Carolina multiple times in the last few months, and had plans of being in Athens for both Dawg Night and the Tennessee game, but we have been unable to confirm whether or not he made the trip. The Gamecocks probably hold an edge at this time, but Georgia is a team he has high interest in.

Krenwick Sanders (Wayne County) - Formerly known as Krenwick Height, Sanders is a prospect Georgia has had high interest in since he visited in the Spring. Georgia offered Sanders at a junior day, and not much is known about his recruitment at this time. He currently holds four offers from Georgia, North Carolina, Vanderbilt, and South Florida.

Tight end

Milan Richard (Calvary Day School) - Richard is the nephew of Georgia legend Herschel Walker, and has visited UGA multiple times since the start of the summer. Richard looked excellent at the Mark Richt Mini Camp in June, and then earned an offer from UGA soon after Dawg Night in July. At this point, he is a recruit with excellent potential but needs to become a more complete player by improving his physicality and blocking.

• Jeb Blazevich[ (Christian; Charlotte, N.C.) - Blazevich was offered by the Bulldogs during the spring evaluation period, and has visited Athens a couple of times since. He was in made the trip for Dawg Night and the Tennessee game, and seems to have built a solid relationship with the Georgia coaches. He currently holds close to 20 offers.

Offensive line

Orlando Brown (Peachtree Ridge) - There has been some question as to whether or not Brown actually has an offer from Georgia, and if he does, he is the only lineman UGA has offered thus far. Brown is an enormous prospect at 6-foot-9, 376 pounds, and has had a tough time getting settled in his junior season at Peachtree Ridge. He has a ton of potential and is very athletic for a guy of his size, but needs his football ability to catch up to his size.
