The best approach to share regarding Georgia and Owen Condon is just come right off the line at it. Kind of like the lyrics of a Travis Scott song. That’s the concert he will be at Friday night.
The big 6-foot-7 offensive tackle from Oklahoma has a lot of ties to UGA. His mother, Sherri, is an alum. Condon feels there are five schools which stand out to him. Georgia is in there, but there is a lot more to cover here.
He feels that his trip to Athens ranks as his best college visit. Condon also plans to visit Athens on June 10. That will be a big trip.
“I hope to decide by the end of June if I’m ready,” Condon said. “But that’s my plan right now.”
It could lock things down for Georgia. Even with a school like Texas starting to move into the picture.
Condon’s top group also includes Arkansas, Oklahoma State, TCU and Vanderbilt. The Longhorns have yet to offer. If they did, they could ascend into his top group.
That information stacks up pretty well for a nice little recruiting update, but there’s something else. Something Condon said that he’s heard lately from both Kirby Smart and offensive line coach Sam Pittman.
If this was a text message, we’d apply an eyeball emoji or three.
“They basically said that if they don’t get me they don’t really know where they’re going to go at tackle,” Condon told DawgNation. “That if I’m willing to leave home that Georgia is the place for me.”
Pittman came by to visit Condon this week.
“I’m really high on Georgia,” Condon said. “I talk with Coach Pittman every few days and I talked with Coach Smart last week and I really like them. They both tell me I’m their guy if I’m ready to commit and they are both just really straight-up guys and I really appreciate that.”
Owen Condon’s June visit could be wonderful for UGA
Condon rates as a 3-star recruit and is the nation’s No. 44 tackle prospect, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
“Now that I have the offer they said they are going to roll out the red carpet for me on June 10,” Condon said.
The Bishop McGuiness standout said Oklahoma State and TCU are the only programs which recruit him as hard as Georgia does. The Bulldogs have a chance to nail things down on that visit.
“I think it could seal the deal,” Condon said. “I loved my last visit there and I think this one could do it for me.”
The location must be noted. The crow needs 920 miles following along I-40 from Oklahoma to reach Athens. Will the distance away from home matter?
“I don’t think it’d be too much of an issue,” Condon said. “I was born in Atlanta and I have family there and on the East Coast. My mom went to Georgia as well.”
Does his mother share her opinion about his choice? She’s an alum, but life sometimes doesn’t all fold into a neat little recruiting update. Her favorite school among his options will change from day-to-day.
“She’s got some bias,” Condon said. “But she’s told me don’t let that affect my decision and I need to go where I fit best regardless of what she thinks.”
