BEAVERTON, Ore. — Quarterback Jake Fromm and receiver Trey Blount might pair up for a crucial touchdown or a game-clinching catch for Georgia in the year 2019 or so. They might connect for 20 touchdowns during their Georgia careers.
When they do, they’ll always have Oregon, where the two have really gotten to know one another.
Blount and Fromm arrived in the Pacific Northwest together and have been hanging out pretty much ever since The Opening began this week. Nike’s invitation-only combine and camp for 166 of the nation’s top players drew them here. The two Georgia commitments have already been serving as ambassadors for Georgia, a program where they think “big things” are on the way.
Fromm (Houston County / Warner Robins, Ga.) is a 4-star quarterback rated as the nation’s No. 3 pro-style passer No. 41 player overall in the Class of 2017. Blount (Pace Academy / Atlanta, Ga.) has been ranked as the nation’s No. 32 receiver and its No. 251 overall prospect.
