UGA makes the final cut for the state’s top RB

Trey Sermon placed UGA among his final six schools on Tuesday.

Trey Sermon, the nation’s No. 9 RB prospect for the Class of 2017, included UGA in a big decision he tweeted out regarding his recruiting on Tuesday.

The four-star back from Sprayberry High School in Metro Atlanta whittled down his 32 offers to just six schools. UGA was in the mix in his final group along with Auburn, Florida, Oklahoma, Oregon and Tennessee.

The rising senior also made the decision he would focus on those six schools only. He reiterated he planned to commit by September, that he would enroll early and also intends to take all of his official visits.  The 6-foot-1, 217-pounder is rated as the nation’s No. 123 overall prospect for the Class of 2017.

Sermon told DawgNation last month that the new staff at UGA has made him feel like much more of a priority than the old regime in Athens.



G-Day, Georgia’s annual spring football scrimmage, is scheduled for 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 16, at Sanford Stadium. Check back here daily for DawgNation’s G-Day coverage brought to you by Georgia United Credit Union.
