Allen (TX) WR Theo Wease Jr. is one of the top playmakers in the country for the 2019 class. The 6-foot-3 190-pound receiver was very impressive at the True19 showdown on Saturday, and it’s easy to see why the Bulldogs offered him during his visit the day before.
“I feel blessed and I’m of course very excited about the offer.” Wease Jr. said. “I know that UGA wants the best of the best, strictly savages and ballers. I can see myself playing there one day!”
Wease Jr. holds 9 offers, with the two most recent coming from Georgia and Oklahoma. The talented sophomore got to experience Athens with the rest of his Texas team, and was very impressed with what the school and the campus had to offer.
“The coaches at Georgia were great and made me feel at home.” Wease Jr. said. “I loved the campus, best I’ve been to yet! I’d definitely love to come back.”
Wease Jr. caught 35 passes during his sophomore season for 422 yards and 8 touchdowns. On film he shows great ball skills, the ability to get separation, and proves he can be a big threat down the field. He has great length, and can make the tough grab in coverage.
Another Texas star that received a Georgia offer was St. Pius (TX) quarterback Grant Gunnell. DawgPost has been reporting about Gunnell for months now, and this was an offer he wanted. Florida State, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Nebraska, Baylor and others have offered the 6-foot-5 205-pounder. Like Wease, Gunell was very impressed with his Georgia visit.
“Campus was beautiful as expected and the facilities blew me away.” Gunnell said. “I talked with head coach Kirby Smart for about five minutes, then I went and talked with offensive coordinator Jim Chaney and he offered me personally. I will most likely come up to a camp and get to throw and work with the coaches.”
Grant made some nice throws during the True19 game, but was running for his life most of the game. The defensive line and linebackers from the Georgia team made it difficult for the Texas team to do much offensively. Expect more offers to come Gunnell’s way shortly. Arkansas, Texas, and others could pull the trigger soon.
