BREAKING: Elite TE target Brock Bowers has made his college decision

Brock Bowers had a final 8 that he established back in April. Yet it seemed like it really came down to two schools.

Georgia. Washington.

Those were the two programs that Bowers and his family took it upon themselves to go check out again in July. The global pandemic and the NCAA’s ruling preventing hosted on-campus visits from college football recruits.

It meant that Bowers and his parents had to endure some long flights from Napa in California to see those schools on their own. They couldn’t go face-to-face with the coaches at either staff, but they made the best of it.

There was that power breakfast he had at Mama’s Boy with two anchors of the 2021 Georgia recruiting class in 5-star QB Brock Vandagriff and 4-star OLB Chaz Chambliss.

It makes sense to say that Bowers, Chambliss and Vandagriff will be eating more biscuits, eggs and those SEC-style cinnamon rolls over the next four years. That’s because the nation’s No. 3 TE (247Sports Composite ratings) decided today was the day he wanted to tell the world he wanted to be a ‘Dawg.

It has always been about people and that was his biggest takeaway about UGA from this trip, too.

“I think it is just like the relationship I have with the coaches there,” Bowers said last month. “I really like the coaches there and then my [potential] incoming class that’s coming in with me. I like Brock. I like Chaz and also talking with a couple of the other players that are already there like Ryland Goede. He just seems like a good dude. All those guys seem like good dudes over there. Ryland is a great dude. He’s great, man.”

That was key.

“That’s pretty important,” Bowers said. “That’s who you are going to spend all of your time with year-round and associate yourself with.”

Georgia tight ends coach Todd Hartley also made a difference here in this recruitment. While he couldn’t see Bowers or his family face-to-face, he was able to connect over FaceTime and other means.

“We were just driving around and he was kind of on the phone with us,” Bowers told DawgNation after that visit. “Kind of like instructing us and showing us around over the phone. So it was good.”
