UGA Gets Immediate Help at OL

ATHENS - Sam Pittman is having a good day.

“Just when you thought there is no way the day could get better..... It did!” Pittman tweeted Monday night. 

Tyler Catalina has decommitted from Iowa State and will enroll at UGA. He’s the second commitment for the Bulldogs today. But Catalina has the ability to play this fall because he is a graduate transfer from Rhode Island. 

“After much thought and conversation with my family, I have decided to decommitt from Iowa State and have decided that I will be playing my final year at the University of Georgia," he tweeted Monday evening. 

The move will bolster Georgia’s offensive line for this fall. The Bulldogs lost starters John Theus and Kolton Houston. And while Catalina isn’t expected to be an all-SEC performer, any depth on the line could will help offset recruiting misses over the last few years on the recruiting trail. 

Catalina is expected to play tackle for the Bulldogs. He picked Georgia over Florida and Iowa State. He was second-team all-conference in 2015 and third-team in 2014.
