Ryland Goede is a big-time target with a nice set of hands. Goede isn’t afraid to go up and catch a pass. His route running skills are crisp and clean. However what stands out to me is his blocking. He’s not afraid to go up against a bigger guy and block him well. Geode squares up and will hit you hard. He’s quick for his size and has hands that don’t miss.
Goede committed to Georgia on 2/7/18 and decided to stay home. Granted its early in the 2019 class, but Goede seems to be a ringleader and someone who will help bring guys to Georgia.
POSITION: WR (But I’m Calling him a TE)
HT, WT: 6-6,220

UGA OFFER: Yes, January 23, 2018
Jaelyn Lay is a prime target. He’s 6-6 and 220 pounds. Lay is a huge target and goes up and catches anything thrown his way. He’s listed as a wideout, but with his size, he could become a tight end at the next level. His routes are crisp and clean and he’s quick. Lay isn’t afraid to block either. He squares up and makes sure he blocks clean. Lay’s got great vision and sees the field well.
Whoever gets this kid is getting something special. Georgia is one of 22 who’ve offered this talented athlete. His recruiting is just getting started and I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s a big target for the top schools. Georgia may have an advantage being the home team, but only time will tell.

One of Trevor Lawrence’s favorite targets, Jackson Lowe is a huge target. He’s got sure hands and can lay a block out. He could work on his routes just a little, they’re not as tight as they could be. However, his blocking is superb and spot on. Lowe’s a big target that can go up and catch the jump balls when needed and doesn’t seem to drop a pass.
Clemson is the team to beat with this player and it doesn’t surprise me because he would be following Lawrence. However, Georgia could keep this kid in-state if they push hard enough for him. He would compliment Goede well and would be an additional target for Fromm and Fields to throw to. He’s a huge tight end and I love what he brings to the table.
