One of UGA’s targets on the offensive line picked up an offer from a rival on Thursday.
Tremayne Anchrum, a 3-star offensive lineman from McEachern High School, announced on Twitter that he received an offer from Georgia Tech.
Even though UGA and Tech are rivals, they rarely offer the same kids from the state for various reasons. Around 20 kids, including the nation’s No. 1 athlete Mecole Hardman, Jr., and the nation’s No. 1 tight end Isaac Nauta, have scholarship offers from both schools.
The 6-foot-3, 268-pounder told the AJC and DawgNation.com earlier this month that UGA is his leader.
“I’ve always loved Georgia,” Anchrum said. “I love their style of play and grew up here. The new staff that coach Mark Richt has brought in instills confidence in me and I believe they can take it to another level with this new recruiting class. I think I can fit in as an athletic lineman coming in and really play multiple positions because I am versatile.”
Anchrum’s teammate, UGA 5-star commit Julian Rochester, told the AJC a few weeks ago that he wasn’t sure where his best friend was going to play college football.
“I would love for him to come to Georgia,” Rochester said. “He’s really quick. I think he’s the best tackle in the country. I talk to him about coming to Georgia all the time. I hope he does.”
Anchrum will take an official visit to UGA on Sept. 19 for the South Carolina game.
UGA currently has three offensive line commits in Stephens County’s Ben Cleveland, Creekside’s Aaron Dowdell and Lee County’s Chris Barnes.
Anchrum plans on committing to his school of choice on Oct. 12.
