DAWG…Best Team in Country Wants St. George, UT 9th Grader!
Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs have taken over college football in the past two years.
They've won two straight national championships.
They've beaten 'Bama.
They had a top tight end in the country in Brock Bowers who won the John Mackey award and who will likely be a first round NFL draft pick next year.
So where are the Bulldogs looking to replace Bowers...St. George, Utah.
Kirby Smart has offered Brock Harris, the young phenom out of Pine View high school, a scholarship to play between the hedges in Athens.
Harris was a ninth grader last season! He had 604 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns despite the Panthers having a tough year. They didn't win a game, but Harris shined nonetheless.
He's 6'6" and 215 lbs.
He has offers from Arizona State, BYU, Georgia, Miami, Oregon, Oregon State, Texas A&M, Utah, Washington and Washington State.
Once again...he just finished his ninth grade year.
Per Dan Raley at si.com:
The attraction to Harris is his combination of size and athleticism at such an early age of development.
He comes off a freshman football season in which he caught 32 passes for 604 yards and 5 touchdowns in eight games, and Harris did it under extraneous circumstances.
His Pine Valley Panthers team finished 0-9, losing on the average by 27 points per outing. (Link to full article)
For Utah, BYU, and Utah State fans who are hoping to keep Harris close to home, good luck now that Georgia has entered the fray. It's one thing to beat out PAC 12 schools, but the two time champions change the conversation.
Can't wait to see Harris out on the field this Fall in region nine!
