Georgia football recruiting tight end well, even without on-field success
Last season, Georgia’s tight ends combined for 23 catches, 272 yards and 2 touchdowns. That doesn’t exactly scream high-usage or being a key part of the passing offense, especially when you consider those numbers were split mostly between Eli Wolf and Charlie Woerner.
Add in that the man in charge of the position is going into his second year on the job, and there’s not exactly a whole lot for Todd Hartley to sell to prospective tight end prospects.
But that hasn’t stopped him from reeling two top-100 overall prospects for Georgia’s tight end room in each of the past two cycles.
Back in January, he landed the 5-star athlete Darnell Washington, a 6-foot-7, 260-pound monster of an athlete from Las Vegas. It was an impressive win for Hartley, especially going across the country to land a player of Washington’s talent.
On Monday, he pulled off another impressive recruiting win from out west, as Georgia landed a commitment from 4-star tight end Brock Bowers. The No. 92 overall prospect in the 247Sports Composite rankings announced his pledge to Georgia over programs like Washington, Penn State and Oregon.
