Tremayne Anchrum visited UGA on Saturday, and the 3-star offensive lineman says the trek only solidified what he’s already felt about the Bulldogs.
“I really feel good at Georgia,” Anchrum said. “And I like where the program is going.”
Anchrum, who anointed UGA as his leader three days ago, says he visited for no particular reason other than to “pop in and see what’s going on.” However, it did give him the chance to watch practice and talk at length with coach Mark Richt and offensive line coach Rob Sale, both of whom covet his versatility.
“(Richt) told me he was glad to see me up in Athens again,” Anchrum said. “He told me he would love to have me play tackle and other positions on the line.”
“He said he’ll be checking in on me often through Twitter.”
Anchrum, who’s ranked as the No. 19 guard in the country, says UGA has treated him like a priority, and admits that he’s “pretty high on their board.” His conversations with Sale echoed those same sentiments.
“Coach Sale and I talked a while about how things were going in camp at McEachern,” Anchrum said. “He told me he would love for me to be Bulldog. I could be a player at multiple spots on the line because of my versatility.”
Also in attendance on Saturday was Woodward Academy’s Elijah Holyfield and two of Anchrum’s teammates at McEachern, Jalen Jackson (offensive lineman) and Willie Dean (defensive tackle).
Anchrum says 5-star defensive tackle Julian Rochester was supposed to make the trip to Athens with him. However, Rochester was unable to make the visit because he injured his finger during practice, according to Anchrum.
He did, however, speak briefly with Holyfield.
“(Holyfield) and I just talked for a quick minute about how he has been and he told me he was liking Georgia,” Anchrum said. “He enjoyed watching the offense.”
Anchrum told the AJC that he’s still on course to commit on Oct. 12.
