Jacob Eason, the 5-star UGA quarterback commitment, hopes he gets the chance to play with a 5-star athlete, a 5-star tight end and a 6-foot-7 offensive lineman after Christmas.
If he could put together a wish list of players to join him at UGA, those prospects would be at the top of his list.
“I’ve got some guys I hope go to UGA like Willie Allen, (Isaac) Nauta and Mecole (Hardman Jr.) and some other guys but I haven’t been really keeping tabs on the guys who are committed elsewhere.”
Allen is a 4-star offensive tackle out of Louisiana. Nauta is a 5-star tight end from Georgia who transferred to IMG Academy. Hardman hails from Elberton in Northeast Georgia. He’s rated as the nation’s No. 1 athlete for 2016.
Nauta took his official visit to UGA for the Alabama game. The former Buford star will be at Sanford Stadium on Saturday for the Georgia Southern game. Eason, like all of DawgNation, would sure like to see a 5-star tight end help out in the red zone at UGA.
“I think it would be awesome,” Eason said. “The number one tight end in the country. Huge guy. Big target to throw to. It would be a dream come true to play with him.”
Nauta still has an official visit to Oklahoma State on his schedule. He will make his commitment on Jan. 9 at the U.S. Army All-American game and enroll at the school of his choice shortly thereafter.
He will choose from UGA, Alabama, Ole Miss, Michigan and Oklahoma State. Check out his senior year highlights at Florida’s IMG Academy below.
