Georgia Offers No. 7 DT in the South Tyrone Truesdell; Now Lead

Georgia has had this top defensive lineman on their campus multiple times over the last two years and now he has an offer from the Dawgs...

Some may have heard the name Tyrone Truesdell, some may not.

He is a guy Scout saw on tape as a freshman and quickly went to Augusta (Ga.) Laney to check on him.

The 6-foot-3, 306 pound junior defensive tackle was named a Top Performer last spring at The Opening Regional in Charlotte (N.C.).

He has been a four-star prospect on Scout for close to a year now, so he is someone high on our board.

Now, he is high on for Georgia.

"I talked on the phone with coach [Tracy] Rocker (Defensive line) and he said he wanted me at Georgia, that he liked how I played in the Junior Bowl, and that I have an offer," said Truesdell.  "He said he had wanted to offer me and now he has.  He now wants me to visit up there, see more of the campus, and meet with the coaches."

The offer from the in-state Bulldogs excites Truesdell, the No. 17-ranked defensive tackle in the country for 2017.  He is familiar with Athens (Ga.) and the Dawgs are now in a good spot on his recruiting list.

"I have camped at Georgia the last two summers and I have been there for a few games too, so I know a lot about them.  I really like the atmosphere there, and Georgia has some of the best fans out there.

"I have liked Georgia since I was a kid, so the offer is a big one for me.  I could see myself at Georgia and I could see myself playing there, so it feels great to have the offer.

"Georgia is my top school right now," said Truesdell.

The first known offer for Truesdell will defintiely not be his last.  He is hearing from schools like Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Miami, and South Carolina.  Expect new offers to start arriving soon.

Having his first offer takes the stress off said Truesdell, but he will only step his game up from here.

"I have a big offer from Georgia and now I want to do what it takes to keep it.  I am going to keep working."
