Nation’s No. 1 junior WR Julian Fleming places UGA in his final six

The nation's No. 1 junior WR Julian Fleming placed UGA among his final six schools on Saturday evening.

Julian Fleming told DawgNation last month he really liked Georgia. He placed the Bulldogs right up there with some of his best visits.

Clemson and Penn State are seen as major contenders for this decision but the Bulldogs were able to sustain another Fleming cutdown on Saturday.

The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder is a physical receiver who displayed elite production at the high school level in 2018.

He was named the 2018 Gatorade Player of the Year for Pennsylvania coming off a tear that has seen his team win two straight state championships in the midst of an active 32-game win streak.

The junior snatched up 80 balls for 1,526 yards and 22 touchdowns. That equates to a strong 19.8 yards per catch as a marked man. It also meant he found the end zone on one out of every 3.6 catches.

The Southern Columbia Area (Catawissa, Pa.) standout also had four interceptions on defense and returned three of those for scores. The notion that he made a big impact on both sides of the ball for a state championship team is a testament to his overall ability at the next level.

The “football player” label clearly fits the scouting profile here.

Penn State currently has 82 percent of the predictions on the 247Sports “Crystal Ball” feature. Ohio State has the other 18 percent. But look out for Clemson here, too.

If the Bulldogs can get one of those spring official visits, then the chances for the program with Fleming would only improve from there.
