UGA Recruiting Daily Thread
The Bulldogs have one talented tight end committed to the 2018 recruiting so far in Marist High School’s John Fitzpatrick, but will the Georgia coaching staff also add a second this cycle? If they do, a couple of candidates are Luke Ford from Carterville, IL and Tommy Tremble from Johns Creek, GA. Of course, the Dogs could also add a couple of tight ends in the 2019 class. Ryland Goede out of Acworth, GA and Keon Zipperer from the Sunshine State in Lakeland, FL are two potential prospects that UGA could pick up. Check out Ford, Tremble, Goede, and Zipperer below; todays featured prospects on Bulldawg Illustrated.

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.

NEWS & NOTES: Tremble is a legacy recruit and was estatic 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 annoucecd 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.
