REEL TALK: Film study and an update on major UGA recruiting target Andrew Raym

Andrew Raym is a two-time state champion football player for Broken Arrow High in Oklahoma.

Andrew Raym took two visits to Georgia this month. The first was for an unofficial visit and he followed that one with an official visit.

Raym is now working off an accelerated timeline. He was at one time set on making his announcement at the Under Armour All-American Game. He has moved that up considerably.

“It is quite hectic right now,” Raym said.

He told DawgNation on Friday morning the “middle of July” sets up as the expected time window for him to make his choice known between Georgia, Michigan and Oklahoma.

The Broken Arrow High (Broken Arrow, Okla.) resident grew up a big fan of the Sooners and was at one time committed to that school.  The nation’s No. 3 offensive guard prospect also rates (on the 247Sports Composite) as the top player in Oklahoma for 2020. That will also slot him as the nation’s No. 90 overall recruit.

Georgia currently has three offensive linemen committed for its 2020 class. Raym and 4-star Louisiana center target Sedrick Van Pran do represent the ideal close to the Georgia class for 2020.

Raym is quite a player here. His recruiting has been well-documented on these pages. Georgia had already emerged as a contender back at the Under Armour “Future 50” on January 1.

He knew at that time that his relationship with Sam Pittman was enough to draw an official visit.

Raym continued to take a hard look at Georgia. He said back in April that Georgia coach Sam Pittman was the only recruiter he basically spoke to at that time.

It was back when the two-sport star was slugging home runs as a first baseman for the Broken Arrow baseball team.

What do these schools see in Raym? How big of a get would he be for the Bulldogs?

The timing presents a fine opportunity for another DawgNation “Reel Talk” segment with former Alabama All-American Mike Johnson. Johnson also played baseball growing up in Florida.

His credentials here to break down film on offensive linemen speak for themselves:

  • Was a 4-star OT prospect coming out of high school
  • Starting 41 straight games and playing in 54 career games at Alabama
  • Was a part of Nick Saban’s first national championship team in Tuscaloosa
  • His selection by the Atlanta Falcons in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft
  • Working at center, guard and tackle during his pro and college career

Johnson saw a lot in the highlights that he liked about Raym. Check out the featured video above for the full rundown.
