LUKE FORD

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: No. 2 TE

HT, WT: 6 foot 6, and 250 lbs

SCHOOL: Carterville High School

CITY, STATE: Carterville, IL

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: Yes, offered on 02/24/2017.

# OFFERS: 30

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, but I think Alabama may be the team to beat here.

TOMMY TREMBLE

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: No. 24 TE

HT, WT: 6 foot 4, and 225 lbs

SCHOOL: Wesleyan High School

CITY, STATE: Norcross, GA

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: Yes, offered on 04/08/2017.

# OFFERS: 23

NEWS & NOTES: Tremble is a legacy recruit and was ecstatic when Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs extended an offer to him back in April on the same day he visited. 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 is front and center at the moment. Whether or not Tremble comes to UGA may hinge on where Ford commits to. Tremble transferred from Johns Creek to Wesleyan for his senior season. The Wolves are 4-1 on the year after a 31-7 victory over Our Lady of Mercy on Friday night. Next weekend, Wesleyan hosts Holy Innocents Episcopal on Friday, Sept. 22.

ARIK GILBERT

CLASS: 2020

POSITION: No. 2 Athlete – DE, TE, WR

HT, WT: 6 foot 4.5, and 240 lbs

SCHOOL: Marietta High School

CITY, STATE: Marietta, GA

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: Yes, offered 07/16/2016.

# OFFERS: 12

NEWS & NOTES: Gilbert is a big sophomore at 6 foot 4.5 and 240 lbs, and the question is will he play at DE or TE in college. I really like the 2020 prospect at TE from what I’ve seen so far. He has 16 receptions for 199 yards and 3 TDs in Marietta’s first 3 games this year, but with his athleticism and size, he could likely excel on either side of the ball. Gilbert already has 12 scholarship offers from major FBS programs, including UGA, who were one of the first programs to offer him last year as a freshman on July 16th. He played at Woodward High School his freshman year and transferred to Marietta before his sophomore season. Gilbert and Marietta are 3-1 on the year after dropping a road game, 37-13, to Lassiter on Friday night. Up next for the Blue Devils, a home game versus Campbell High School on September 22nd.
