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: 31

NEWS & NOTES: Luke Ford was offered by UGA back in February and then committed to Arkansas a month later in March. However, Ford then de-committed from the Razorbacks on June 10th, reopening up his recruitment. He visited UGA during the summer 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 favoring JUCO prospect Dominick Wood-Anderson looks like it has turned things back to Georgia’s favor. College football is like a marathon roller coaster ride, and Ford’s recruitment is no exception.
 
Ford did visit the Crimson Tide on Oct. 14th, and then Ford was in Athens for the Bulldogs home game versus South Carolina on Nov. 4th and had a great visit by all accounts. He took an official visit to Texas on Nov. 11th, and he has another official visit scheduled to Auburn for Nov. 25th. Georgia gets one of Ford’s remaining three officials and he is has scheduled it for Dec. 15th. Right now, Bulldawg Bob’s old Magic 8-Ball says there is a 90% chance that Luke Ford ends up committing to and signing with Georgia.

TOMMY TREMBLE

CLASS: 2018

POSITION: No. 23 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: 26

NEWS & NOTES: Tommy Tremble is a legacy recruit, the son of former UGA defensive back Greg Tremble, 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 there is a high probability that the Irish land Tremble. Whether or not Tremble comes to UGA may hinge on where Ford commits to, which is very likely at the moment, 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 on Nov. 4th for Georgia’s game versus South Carolina, and he has since been back to Notre Dame, taking a visit to South Bend on Nov. 18th. He is scheduled to visit Michigan this weekend (Saturday, Nov. 25th).
 
Tremble will visit Notre Dame this weekend on Nov. 18th and then will also take an official visit to Michigan on Nov. 25th.

KEON ZIPPERER

CLASS: 2019

POSITION: No. 2 TE

HT, WT: 6 foot 3, and 232 lbs

SCHOOL: Lakeland High School

CITY, STATE: Lakeland, FL

STATUS: Undeclared

UGA OFFER: Yes, offered on June 15th.

# OFFERS: 22

NEWS & NOTES: Keon Zipperer camped and visited UGA over the summer on June 15th and received an offer from the Dogs the very same day. Georgia’s offer is one of twenty-two that Keon has received so far as he is considered one of the top tight ends in the 2019 recruiting class. Right now, he is leaning towards a couple of Sunshine State school in the Gators and the Seminoles, but with Florida looking for a new head coach and that staff in the midst of transition along with potential coaching changes at FSU, it’ll be interesting to see how that effects Keon’s recruitment. Keon has visited FSU, on Oct. 7th, and Clemson, on Nov. 11th, over the fall football season.
