Owen Condon told the world that he was going to be a Dawg on Saturday afternoon.
That meant everything on his latest visit went according to plan. Owen Condon told DawgNation awhile back there was a chance he might commit to Georgia on his visit this weekend.
“I think it could seal the deal,” Condon said earlier this spring. “I loved my last visit there and I think this one could do it for me.”
That chance came to be.
The 6-foot-6.5 tackle from Oklahoma City is Georgia’s fourth commitment since May 31. His decision boosts the program’s commitment tally to six recruits.
It was a win for the Bulldogs as Condon had said that Georgia offensive line coach Sam Pittman told him earlier this spring he wasn’t sure where the program would turn at tackle if he didn’t wind up in Athens.
That matter is solved.

Condon told his mother, Sherri, on Saturday morning that he had seen all he needed to see and he would commit before leaving Athens. Sherri Condon graduated from UGA.
Condon, a 3-star prospect, is the nation’s No. 44 tackle for 2018, per the 247Sports composite rankings.
The Bishop McGuinness standout told DawgNation after his decision that his recruiting is now shut down. He no longer will visit other schools and plans to enroll next summer.
While it is always uncertain, he also feels he might be the only tackle the Bulldogs take in the 2018 signing class.
The 305-pound prospect had been on a two-day visit to UGA this weekend.
