UGA Recruiting Daily Thread
The Georgia coaching staff continues to recruit the offensive line well. So far, for 2018, the Bulldogs have Bishop McGuinness High School OT Owen Condon and North Gwinnett’s Warren Ericson committed, and the Dogs are considered strong favorites for two of the top offensive linemen in the state of Georgia and the country in offensive guards Trey Hill and Jamaree Sayler. If they land Hill and Salyer, that would give Georgia 4 big time o-line commits for 2018, but don’t be surprised if the Bulldogs add a fifth lineman and that would most likely be a second tackle. Georgia also has a o-line commit for 2019 in talented big man, North Murray High School’s Luke Griffin. Below are four featured offensive tackles, two 2018 and two 2019, that are UGA offers and targets.
