With the loss of Jackson Harris to graduation, Isaac Nauta to the NFL, and Luke Ford to transfer few schools in America can offer a wide open path to playing time at tight end quite like the University of Georgia. It looks like at least one highly sought after prospect for the class of 2019 was paying attention to that.
Clearwater Catholic (Florida) standout Brett Seither chose the Bulldogs this afternoon over fellow finalist Alabama. The three star tight end’s recruitment is the epitome of what the split signing day process implemented last year was supposed to do. A prospect who did not have major offers early, Seither found himself as the best available prospect in the southeast at a position where multiple powerhouse teams needed immediate help. As a result he has become one of the most hotly recruited players in the country over the past two months.
Georgia may still look to add a graduate transfer tight end to provide immediate help, but Seither is another player who fills a spot at which Georgia needed bodies. As a bonus he looks like a player with lots of potential who could grow into a real contributor down the line.
