Want to attack every day with the latest UGA football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel brings. This entry is a good first read on Brookwood HS quarterback Dylan Lonergan. He is a well-regarded sophomore QB.
Georgia offered Brookwood High School QB Dylan Lonergan on Saturday. It was a big offer for several reasons. There are not many 2023 offers that are worthy of a full-blown DawgNation read.
We can just imagine the DawgNation editors coming back with something like … “A sophomore offer, man? We’re talking about an offer here?”
Why yes. Yes, we are. The Georgia offer to Lonergan stands out for more reasons than Lonergan has playmakers at receiver in his progressions in the Brookwood offense.
Let’s tally them up:
- According to the database on 247Sports, it appears Lonergan becomes the fifth QB in the class to land a Bulldog offer. He is the first in-state offer.
- He is shredding GHSA Class 7A through the first two games of his sophomore year. Check out his average game so far in Georgia’s highest classification: 25-of-37 for 354 yards with 3.5 touchdowns and 1.0 interceptions. Lonergan is completing 67 percent of his passes.
- His father was a former backup QB for Todd Blackledge at Penn State.
- Lonergan’s offer sheet now includes the likes of Georgia, LSU, Oregon, Penn State and South Carolina, among others.
- The in-state QB is now on a team that features four significant Georgia offers, including prized 2022 commit Marquis Groves-Killebrew.
- Lonergan is a splendid athlete. I’ve been told he was quite a golfer growing up, but he largely left his clubs in the bag to pursue baseball and football. The 6-foot-1 200-pounder is a national All-American type prospect as a RHP. He’s already touched between 91-93 mph off the bump at 16 years of age.
The Diamond Dawgs are said to have offered him when he was in middle school. How did he feel about the latest Georgia offer?
“It felt great to get my hometown school and I was very excited to get this one,” Lonergan told DawgNation.
His teammate, Marquis Groves-Killebrew, is a relentless lead recruiter for Georgia in the 2022 class. He’s already been very much in Lonergan’s ear about being teammates for a few more years in college.
“He’s been on me a lot already trying to get me to join him there,” Lonergan said. “Definitely going to think about it but I’ve got a lot of things to weigh into my decision.”
Offers are cool. Prospecting is cool. But what truly matters with an elite QB prospect is his football DNA.
That’s his game film. Lonergan has compiled those GHSA “Fantasy Football” numbers amind the stress of the ultimate pressure cooker. He’s helped his Broncos pull out a pair of comeback victories.
Walton was up 32-21 with seven minutes left. Lonergan delivered the go-ahead TD on an approximate 62-yard touchdown gallop in an eventual 43-32 win.
Dacula had a late lead that Brookwood ended up closing the gap with a Lonergan TD with 1:03 left to play. That contest spiraled from there into a 40-34 victory. It required four overtimes to settle it.
Lonergan set a new school-record with 432 passing yards and his four touchdowns in that win.
This throw below forced the first overtime period.
