Today on Bulldawg Illustrated’s UGA recruiting daily we take a look at four tight end prospects, two from the class of 2018 and two 2019.
 

Georgia already has one tight end committed for 2018, 6 foot 6 and 232 lbs John Fitzpatrick out of Marist High School. And with 18 prospects already committed for 2018, do the Bulldogs have room to sign a second tight end in this recruiting class? If they do, the top two targets are Luke Ford, out of Carterville, Illinois, and Wesleyan High School’s Tommy Tremble.

 

The Bulldogs do lose seniors Jeb Blazevich and Jordan Davis at the end of this season which leaves them with junior Jackson Harris along with sophomores Isaac Nauta and Charlie Woerner, but they could get by with just signing one tight end in 2018 and then either sign one or two in 2019. Two prospects to look at in 2019 are Kennesaw Mountain High School’s Ryland Goede and Lakeland, Florida’s Keon Zipperer.

NEWS & NOTES: Ford was offered by UGA back in February and then committed to Arkansas a month later in March. However, Ford then de-committed from Arkansas on June 10th, reopening up his recruitment. He visited UGA back on July 15th and also visited Texas, Michigan, and Illinois during the month of July. Could Ford be the second TE the Bulldogs are looking to get a commitment from for the 2018 class?
 
I do think he is their No. 1 target left on the board at that position. Alabama has been the team to beat here since the summer, but the recent commitment of 2018 QB Justin Fields to the Bulldogs along with Alabama possibly favoring JUCO prospect Dominick Wood-Anderson may have turned things back to Georgia’s favor. Ford did visit the Crimson Tide on October 14th, but he was in Athens at UGA this past Saturday for the Bulldogs home game versus South Carolina. Ford had a great visit

NEWS & NOTES: Tremble is a legacy recruit and was ecstatic when Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs extended an offer to him back in the spring on the same day he visited on April 8th. He came back to Athens a couple of months later and attended Kirby Smart Football Camp on June 2nd. How much does Tremble like Georgia?
 
He put UGA in his top 6 schools he announced on July 4th. The Dogs were considered a leader after he was offered, but Notre Dame has made a big push and is front and center at the moment. Whether or not Tremble comes to UGA may hinge on where Ford commits to, but he still regards UGA highly. Tremble visited the Bulldogs for their homecoming game versus Missouri on October 14th, and then he visited Notre Dame a week later on Oct. 21st. The Wesleyan High School senior was back in Athens this past Saturday for Georgia’s game versus South Carolina.
