JD Bertrand is a 6-1 215-pound four-star outside linebacker from Blessed Trinity Catholic School in Roswell, Georgia. He ranks as the No. 16 OLB and the No. 22 prospect in Georgia. Bertrand committed to Georgia on July 15, 2017, giving the Bulldogs its third commitment of 2019. He holds 10 offers, but his commitment to Georgia appears to be solid as a rock.

I spoke with Bertrand for a quick interview about being his commitment to Georgia and who he’s trying to flip and bring to the 2019 class.


JD Bertrand Interview:

Q: Since you’re committed to Georgia do you still plan on using your official visits? Have you decided where?

A: “I haven’t taken any other visits since committing, and don’t have any visits on the schedule as of now.”

Q: What do you think of Georgia? What drew you to them?

A: “UGA is a great combination of both academics and football. I love the coaching staff and the energy around the program.”

Q: How hard did they recruit you? And what are some things they told you to get that pledge to them?

A: “They told me they really like my film and my combination of all my skills as a linebacker.”

Q: What were some of the key factors that went into your decision?

A: “Factors that contributed are that they are close to home, great coaches, awesome environment, and can compete for a national title.”

Q: Are there any guys that since you are a part of the 2019 class that the recruits are going for themselves? Care to share?

A: “Definitely pushing Chris Hinton to flip, Owen Pappoe, Steele Chambers, Harry Miller, and some others.”
