4-Star Gerry Bohanon Recaps Weekend Visit to Georgia

Gerry Bohanon, a four-star prospect and one of the top players in Arkansas, recaps his weekend visit to Georgia.

Georgia got a weekend visit from 2018 four-star athlete Gerry Bohanon, one of the top overall prospects in the state of Arkansas and a player who's been recruited as a quarterback and as an athlete.

The 6-foot-3, 211-pound Bohanon counts the Bulldogs among his double-digit offers, which also include programs such as Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Baylor, Louisville, LSU, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Tennessee.

Bohanon said this past weekend marked his first visit to Athens, which he enjoyed.

"They really made me feel home. Athens is a football town and I love it," Bohanon said. "The coaches' personalities, the campus, how good the team looked during the scrimmage, and how important education is" all stood out to Bohanon.


Offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Jim Chaney spent the most time with Bohanon.

"They are looking for a dual-threat guy that could sling it but also could make plays with their feet," Bohanon said. "They want to use me as a quarterback that could also make things happen on the ground, such as short-yardage plays. With me, they could run it.

"They made a big impression on me so I'll be looking more into them. They're definitely high."

Bohanon said a possible visit to LSU comes next, as well as a trip to in-state Arkansas. LSU does not have a 2018 quarterback commitment, but Arkansas landed in-state four-star Connor Noland last July. The Hogs likely want Bohanon as an athlete prospect.

Bohanon said he's in no rush to make a commitment.

"I'm taking it as it comes," he said. "I'm going to be making a decision in December."

As a junior this past fall, Bohanon accounted for 3,868 total yards of offense and 41 total touchdowns. He threw for 2,734 yards and 27 TD's, while rushing for 1,134 yards and 14 scores.

In the meantime, Bohanon said he's working on preparing for his senior campaign.

"I'm working on becoming a better quarterback," Bohanon said. "Throwing the ball better, becoming more accurate, improving my feet, and just developing myself into more of a guy that could sit in the pocket."
