Sedrick Van Pran-Granger: Even Arthur Blank wants to know if he’s still ‘comfortable’ with UGA

Want to attack every day with the latest UGA football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel brings. The play sheet today calls for an update with elite OL commit Sedrick Van Pran-Granger just after his Georgia official visit. 

Have you heard that one about Sedrick Van Pran-Granger and the NFL billionaire owner? That story shows just how widespread the attention on college football recruiting is these days.

It involves the nation’s No. 1 center (247Sports Composite) and his ties to the state of Georgia Van Pran-Granger already has family in the state.

The New Orleans native will soon see more members of his immediate family move to the Atlanta area. He should still be seen as a very solid commit to Georgia.

That said, he did not sign during the early period. That caught the eyes of a lot of Georgia fans and Georgians in general, including the owner of the Atlanta Falcons.

The context of that story came up while Van Pran-Granger was describing how much the Georgia fan base has embraced him since he committed back on Aug. 17, 2019.

“My uncle stays out there in Georgia,” he said during Under Armour All-American Week down in Florida. “He called me a couple of weeks ago and you know he runs a car dealership. I think it was one of his clients or a co-worker or something. They know Arthur Blank.”

Yes, that same Arthur Blank. The pinstripe suits. Home Depot. The owner of the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons.

“Arthur Blank was worried if I was going to stay committed to Georgia,” Van Pran-Granger said. “Seriously. I thought that was a really cool story. Just shows the love that I have gotten from Georgia man. It is crazy.”

Sedrick Van Pran-Granger: Where things stand

Van Pran-Granger just took his official visit to Georgia over the weekend. Did it give anything for Mr. Blank to feel better about?

SVPG’s answer sounds a lot like it was in Orlando. He’s still anchored down with his commitment to Georgia. Like a center would be with his head on a swivel tracking blitzers.

Need a refresh? The answer he gave down in Orlando was that he was very “comfortable” with his commitment.

What did he have to say this week?

“I think things still remain with me with the same word that I used at Under Armour,” Van Pran-Granger said. “I haven’t been taking any home visits. We’ve been talking to the coaches when they come by at the school and stuff. We pay our respects or whatever but the overall word to describe where I am at right now is comfortable. Still comfortable.”

He took an official visit to Alabama over the Jan. 17 weekend. Georgia got its chance to host him last weekend.

Florida will now have its chance this weekend. Dan Mullen came to check in on Van Pran-Granger at Warren Easton High in New Orleans on Monday.

The recruiting process has picked up for him. He continues to receive strong interest from Alabama, Florida and LSU buzzing around his field of vision.

Those schools are still pushing.

“It is a lot more stressful than I thought it would be,” Van Pran-Granger said. “But coach [Kirby] Smart told me that it would be so I couldn’t say that I wasn’t warned.”
