As a senior last season, Omoregie Uzzi was rated as the No. 1 offensive lineman in the Peach State. The Chamblee High star's exploits in the trenches made him one of the most highly touted linemen in then entire country as he was ranked the ninth-best offensive guard.
Scout.com Director of Scouting Scott Kennedy had this to say about the 6-3, 290-pounder: "An athletic big man with a great frame to play interior line on offense or defense, Uzzi plays with great leverage and pad level. He'll need to work on getting off of blocks a little sooner so that he can square up on the ball carrier better. A terrific college prospect."
Recruitment: In the end it came down to three programs for the athletic four-star prospect: Alabama, Georgia Tech and Virginia. The Yellow Jackets eventually earned his commitment when he gave a verbal pledge to new head coach Paul Johnson in early February.
At Georgia Tech: With a new regime and new system being implemented in Atlanta, every position across the depth chart is up for grabs and Uzzi has just a good of a shot as anyone to earn immediate playing time.
