Today on Bulldawg Illustrated’s UGA recruiting daily we take a look at Georgia’s 2019 offensive line recruiting and several 2019 prospects.

 

The Georgia coaching staff has been recruiting at a very high level under the direction of Head Coach Kirby Smart. His O-Line Coach Sam Pittman signed five offensive linemen in the 2017 recruiting class that included five-star OT Isaiah Wilson and the No. 9 OT, top-50 player Andrew Thomas along with OG’s Netori Johnson and Justin Shaffer and JUCO OT D’Marcus Hayes. The Dogs then followed that up with the five signees in this year’s 2018 class that includes five-star talents OT Cade Mays and OG Jamaree Salyer as well as top-three OG Trey Hill and top-five center Warren Ericson.

 

So with back to back classes that have infused a plethora of talent into UGA’s O-line with 10 very talented prospects, that means the offensive line is not a priority for 2019? Wrong.

 

Expect Georgia to make the O-line a priority every year with Kirby Smart as Head Coach and expect them to not just go after talent in the Peach State but abroad. The staff has already sent out 30 scholarship offers to O-linemen for 2019. So far the Dogs have one O-line commit for 2019, North Murray High School’s Luke Griffin, a 6 foot 5.5, and 285 lbs OT out of Chatsworth, GA. And expect UGA to sign at least four to five more O-linemen in the 2019 class. Let’s take a look at five of those 30 prospects below.

NEWS & NOTES: Buford High School turns out a number of talented college football prospects each year and 2019 offensive lineman Harry Miller is no exception. The Bulldogs offered the Wolves’ OT this past summer in June. Miller also took visits to both Alabama and Clemson over the summer, and he was able to visit UGA during the fall. He also recently visited the Dogs on Jan. 27th.
 
Miller is fun to watch as he is a tenacious blocker with a mean streak. So far, Miller has over 27 scholarship offers, and Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio State, and Stanford are earlier favorites.
 
Big question for Miller is he better suited to play tackle or guard at the collegiate level?
