Nation’s No. 1 junior Bryan Bresee still has UGA very much on his mind

5-star DE Bryan Bresee is the nation's No. 1 prospect on the 247Sports Composite for the 2020 cycle.

Want to attack every day with the latest UGA football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel brings at least four days a week. The play sheet today calls for chat with 5-star junior DE Bryan Bresee. The Maryland native is the nation’s No. 1 overall prospect for the class of 2020. 

SAN ANTONIO, Tex. — When the 2019 All-American Bowl was over, the hounds came out. They were after some future Bulldogs. There were five of them on the field to target. At least.

These would be described best as autograph and “selfie” hounds.

When 5-star junior Bryan Bresee saw that, he eyed a chance for friendly ribbing. He jogged over to where 5-star Georgia signee Travon Walker was about to set up.

Walker, the nation’s No. 2 DT recruit (per the 247Sports composite ratings), was about to partake in more than 20 minutes of signing (or posing for pics) or anything the Alamodome crowd had for him.

Bresee had a jester’s grin as he jogged over to ask Walker for a signature.

Big Travon laughed.

He initially declined, but then reconsidered on a dime.

“I will,” Walker said. “But you know what I need from you …..”

Bresee enjoyed the exchange. Walker wants him to commit to the G.

He’s has been a major UGA target in the highest sense of that phrase for almost a year now. At least. He’s had three great trips in succession to Athens in a recruiting process that also has very major contenders in Penn State and Ohio State, at the very least.

“I still feel the same way about Georgia,” Bresee said. “You know? Especially with Nolan [Smith] and Travon. They are getting a lot of really good recruits and I love coach [Tray] Scott and coach [Kirby] Smart.”

The 5-star DE from Maryland told DawgNation on Saturday afternoon the world might have to wait a good bit longer to find out about that.

“I will sign during the early signing period because I’m leaving early for college,” Bresee said. “I will probably sign on the early signing day.”

He wasn’t sure, but it even sounded like he might wait to make his decision known on the first day of that early signing period.

That’s not just sign. That might be to make the decision known at all.

Bresee also feels he is figuring out a lot of things with his decision. He might take a mix of spring and fall officials.

“I’ll probably take two or three in the spring and I will probably take two or three in the fall as well,” he said.
