Want to attack every day with the latest UGA football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel brings. This entry offers an update on the recruiting timeline of 2022 priority TE target Oscar Delp of West Forsyth High School in Georgia.
Gunner Stockton has a way with words. It might necessitate half a can of WD-40 sometimes to get him to really open up.
Yet when he does, the outlook of a cattle farming Northeast Georgia country boy just comes out.
He sees things from a different perspective.
The topic this time was Oscar Delp. When asked about the nation’s No. 1 TE prospect (247Sports Composite) for 2022, Stockton didn’t lock onto the obvious.
The frame? No. Hands? Nope. The routes like a receiver? Nada. The way Delp finds an uncommon gear for a near 6-foot-5 TE to go beyond the second level? Stockton knows that, but no.
Those two are first-year teammates on the well-regarded Hustle, Inc. 7-on-7 squad. Does the Georgia commit think Delp could do damage in Athens?
Sure. That’s just not the main thing right now.

“I’d really like to play with him,” Stockton said. “But I’m really trying to get a roommate, too. Oscar would be a good one.”
Those two roomed together for the first 7-on-7 road trip of the season. The squad fared very well in the annual Myrtle Beach kickoff tournament.
Delp said it went well. He even described the 5-star QB as the neat and tidy one.
What was that time like for Stockton?
“Really just getting to know him besides the fact he is a really good football player,” Stockton said.
Delp is skilled enough to do a lot… including potentially joining 2021 signee Brock Bowers as the breaker of chains around the TE position at UGA.
“It was awesome,” Delp said of rooming with Stockon. “The last tournament was our first tournament rooming together. Our first tournament. Our first tournament together. It was really cool. We were just hanging out. It was like we’ve known each other for two years already the first time we really started hanging out. It was awesome.”
Delp already has his own view of Stockton.
“He’s funny,” Delp said. “He’s cool, but he’s really humble. That’s one thing I got of it. He’s all-around a great kid and a great person.”
The 7-on-7 circuit has shown him the real side of Georgia’s prized 5-star QB for this class.
“The one thing I’ve noticed about Gunner is if he makes a little mistake or throws a pick or something he completely forgets about it the next play and plays like it never even happened,” Delp said. “That’s one thing a lot of players struggle with but he doesn’t even let anything get in his head. He just moves on and moves right on from it. It is really cool to see.”
