Four-star receiver talks Georgia visit

Pace Academy (GA) wide receiver Trey Blount is the state of Georgia's top receiver for the 2017 class, and he talks about his recent visit to Georgia.

Trey Blount is one of the nicest kids you will come across off the field, but once he straps up the pads, he becomes the top receiver prospect in the state of Georgia.  The 6-foot-2 192-pound Blount transferred from Hillgove (GA) a year ago and led his new Pace Academy team to a state championship this past season.  Blount made play after play throughout the playoffs, and showed he could be a difference maker at the next level.  Blount recently took a visit to Georgia, and the sure-handed receiver liked what he saw.

"My visit to Georgia was awesome."  Blount said.  "I am very excited to have been able to finally sit down with head coach Kirby Smart and wide reciever's coach James Coley face to face and talk football with them."  I'm excited to see what they have to offer."  Blount admitted he wanted to get to know the new coaching staff at Georgia a little better, and the coaches made sure Blount knew he would be a priority in the 2017 class. 

"Georgia offers a great opportunity to represent the home state on and off the field."  Blount said.  "The coaches offer knowledge of the game to help develop me to the level of receiver I need to be in order to be successful on the next level."

Blount stood out among the receivers during the Rising Seniors game this past December, catching a touchdown pass early in the game. Blount starred at reciever, on specials teams, and even on defense at times during his junior season while recording 34 catches for 618 yards and nine touchdowns.  On defense, Blount recorded 28 tackles and three interceptions.

Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, South Carolina, Alabama, and Oregon are all in the mix for the state of Georgia's top receiver.  Look for Kirby Smart to try and get Blount to visit Athens again soon.
