The Georgia staff got some big news this morning when Bishop Mcguinness (OK) offensive tackle Owen Condon committed to Georgia. He tweeted out his public commitment this evening, and spoke with Dawg Post after committing.
"I decided to commit this morning." Condon told Dawg Post." Just the combination of football especially the staff and being in the best conference, academics, and social life is unmatched in my opinion. The coaches were pumped they were jumping up and down when I told them."
Condon visited Georgia previously in mid March, and admitted he "absolutely loved" that visit. He was offered while on campus and Georgia immediately jumped into Condon's top group after the offer. Condon said what he was looking for in a school were good relationships with the coaches, good education, and somewhere where he could develop and be put in a position to play in the NFL.
So what is Georgia getting in the four-star prospect?
It's well documented that the Georgia staff wants more size along the line of scrimmage, and Condon fits that mold with his 6-foot-7 300-pound frame. He still has a lean look and moves well for someone his size. Like Georgia's other commit Warren Ericson, Condon is a mauler in the run game who plays with a mean streak. He finishes his blocks well and plays as hard as he can through the whistle. He will have to tune up his pass protection, as he plays in a more run-oriented offense for his Oklahoma team. There's no doubt he has the size and length to play tackle at the next level, and will likely start off his career in Athens on the right side of the line.
Condon is Georgia's second offensive line commit in the 2018 class joining North Gwinnett guard Warren Ericson. Condon is a four-star prospect and the second-ranked tackle prospect in Oklahoma.
If Georgia decides to take another tackle in this class, it will likely be IMG Academy (FL) tackle Daniel Faalele, a prospect Georgia has really turned the heat on this spring. The Bulldogs are still in a great spot to land guard prospects Jamaree Salyer and Trey Hill.
