Florida OT prospect sets official to UGA

11/8/2011

ATHENS, Ga. -- University of Georgia head coach Mark Richt said in the spring that, because of injuries and attrition, the Bulldogs would likely need to sign five to six offensive linemen in the 2012 recruiting class. With only three -- John Theus, Chester Brown and Greg Pyke -- committed to the Bulldogs, there is work to be done. The top prospect on the board, Avery Young (Palm Beach Gardens, Fla./Palm Beach Gardens), has had Georgia in his top group throughout the process, even though the 6-foot-5, 270-pound senior has never set foot on campus.

That will soon change.

"I am really excited about getting up to Georgia for the Kentucky game," Young said.
