Tremayne Anchrum claims 22 scholarship offers — and out of all of those schools — UGA is recruiting him the hardest, he says.
Anchrum, a 3-star offensive lineman from McEachern High School, told the AJC that UGA leads for him.

“I’ve always loved Georgia,” Anchrum said. “I love their style of play and grew up here. The new staff that coach Mark Richt has brought in instills confidence in me and I believe they can take it to another level with this new recruiting class. I think I can fit in as an athletic lineman coming in and really play multiple positions because I am versatile.”
The 6-foot-3, 268-pounder said UGA offensive line coach Rob Sale told him that he is looking at him to play either tackle or center for the Bulldogs. Anchrum prefers tackle because he likes to play in space, but wouldn’t mind playing any position on the line.
He will take an official visit to UGA on Sept. 19 for the South Carolina game, and he is looking to firm up his thoughts about the school while he is there.
“I want to see consistency in the offense,” he said. “I want to see the chemistry work with the players and coaches. I want to feel like I’m at home. I just really want to get that raw feeling from Georgia.”
Anchrum’s teammate, UGA 5-star commit Julian Rochester, told the AJC that he wasn’t sure where his best friend was going to play college football.
“I would love for him to come to Georgia,” Rochester said. “He’s really quick. I think he’s the best tackle in the country. I talk to him about coming to Georgia all the time. I hope he does.”
UGA currently has three offensive line commits in Stephens County’s Ben Cleveland, Creekside’s Aaron Dowdell and Lee County’s Chris Barnes.
Anchrum is set to commit on Oct. 12. He doesn’t know how he will announce his decision yet.
