UGA offensive line target Demetri Moore was waiting for an offer from Auburn “since day one,” and he finally received it on Thursday.
Despite getting the good news from Auburn, the Mississippi Delta junior college lineman admitted that he was a bit disappointed with Auburn. That’s one of the reasons why UGA leads for him.
“Auburn is in the mix, but right now, Georgia is leading the pack for me,” Moore told the AJC. “For me, I was kind of disappointed because I wanted the Auburn offer from day one. With Georgia, they have been talking with me nonstop since they have shown interest in me. I think Auburn just offered me because I had the offer from Georgia.”
The 6-foot-6, 300-pounder, who was offered by UGA in late August, told the AJC that he had a long conversation recently with Bulldogs assistant Mike Ekeler.
Ekeler’s message to Moore was clear: UGA is losing two seniors on the line after the season, and he can play immediately.
“He was just telling me that they really need me to come in and start because they are going to be losing some seniors on the offensive line,” Moore said.
Moore will take an unofficial visit to UGA soon, but he does not have a date on when that trip will occur. He will also take an official visit after the season finishes.
UGA is expected to take five offensive linemen in this year’s class. The Bulldogs currently have commitments from Stephens County’s Ben Cleveland, Creekside’s Aaron Dowdell and Lee County’s Chris Barnes. UGA is targeting 4-stars Willie Allen, Landon Dickerson and Terrance Davis, in addition to 3-star Tremayne Anchrum and Moore to fill out the final two spots.
The junior college prospect graduates in December and will be an early enrollee at whichever school he commits to.
