Dawg Post caught up with receiver commit Trey Blount, and got his take on the Bulldog's big win over the Tigers last weekend.
'It was a very exciting win!" Trey said. Guys came together and beat a good quality opponent. This is a signature win for coach Smart and the program. I'm looking to be part of this team next year.!"
The four-star receiver visited Georgia with his Pace Academy teammates Andrew Thomas and Jamaree Salyer, both of whom play on the offensive line. Thomas is a Georgia commit in the 2017 like Blount, and Salyer is a major Georgia target in the 2018 class.
Another target on the offensive line made it to Athens last weekend as well. Houston County (GA) lineman Deontrey Hill is becoming a household name in recruiting after an impressive offseason, and is becoming a priority for the Bulldogs in the 2018 class.
"It was a great atmosphere at UGA." Hill said."Everyone was excited for that game. UGA getting that win was huge. I think that win should get them in a bowl game this year. My favorite part of the visit was just getting to bond with the coaches and the rest of the staff."
Hill admitted that he is feeling like a priority at Georgia and that he hung out with guys like Walker Little. teammate Jake Fromm, and lineman Jamaree Salyer on his visit. Hill recently earned an offer from Colorado, and will continue to hear from more schools.
In other recruiting news, four-star athlete Amari Burney received an offer from Ole Miss. The 2018 prospect from Clearwater Central Catholic (FL) in St. Petersburg told me he continues to receiver mail from Georgia, but they have not extended an offer. Dawg Post has mentioned him before, and he is a prospect who could continue to add big offers this winter and into spring.
Two 2018 receivers, North Pauldins' Brian Mitchell, and Hillgrove's Chigoziem Okonkwo both have told me they plan on visiting Georgia this weekend. Okonkwo has good size and is starting to gain strong interest from major programs including Georgia. He has the potential to be one of the top receiver prospects in Georgia for the 2018 class.
