The Georgia Bulldogs got an entry in the Pro Football Focus freshman All-American team thanks to the outstanding efforts of tight end Isaac Nauta.

Nauta made PFF’s top frosh team along with the likes of Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts, Houston defensive lineman Ed Oliver and Ohio State edge defender Nick Bosa.

Here’s what the site had to say about Nauta:

By far the best true freshman tight end in the country, Nauta finished with 353 yards on 27 catches as he developed early chemistry with fellow true freshman quarterback Jacob Eason.

Nauta was a key weapon for the Georgia passing game, lining up on the outside and in the slot quite a bit as he dwarfed the rest of the nation’s true freshman tight ends statistically.

Considering how Georgia has been recruiting lately, Nauta should have a lot to look forward to in the next couple of seasons.

The team was littered with SEC talent, including the aforementioned Hurts, Kentucky RB Benny Snell, Alabama OT Jonah Williams, Florida linebacker David Reese and others.

UGA will look to add a few more members for next year’s edition.
