4-star OT Kingsley Suamataia Breaks Down Georgia Visit

June 18, 2019

There have been plenty of out-of-state prospects that have come through Athens the last couple of weeks, and two of the best came from the state of Utah.

Dawg Post first reported on June 10th that the Georgia staff were hosting 2020 linebacker Noah Sewell‍ and 2021 offensive lineman Kingsley Suamataia‍ of Urem (UT). Sewell is a top Georgia target and someone coach Glenn Schumann has been recruiting hard since being offered by the Bulldogs on February 14th.

Now, it was Suamataia’s turn to receive a Georgia offer, which is exactly what he did during his workout last week.

“Coach Pittman was awesome!” The 6-foot-5 280-pounder said. “I learned a lot from him, and I had fun going up against some of the best guys in the country. I saw the great facilities and heard they will be expanding. I got to see the team workout, watch the film, breakdown film, and listen to coaches talk.”

Like just about every offensive lineman that’s been recruited by Sam Pittman, the Utah native can see why Pittman is different from everyone else. 

“Coach Pittman is knowledgeable and I understand the way he teaches,” Suamataia said. “I learned so much from him this past week. Also, coach Eddie took the time to show me on film and on the field other techniques I will for sure use this next season. I came away from my visit a better player and had an idea about the direction I want to take in competition.”

The four-star showed up, impressed, and walked away with an offer from Georgia after his workout. 

“It felt great to have all the coaches on defense and offense coming up to me after the camp say ‘undefeated in the south’, so that felt good and made me feel confident. I never lost a rep on 1on1’s and had about 10 reps. At the same time, I know I have lots to work on.”

Sources tell Dawg Post that both the Utah natives were made a priority to the staff the minute they stepped on campus.

“I had a great time meeting the players and coaches,” Suamataia said. They’re a good bunch of guys. Noah (Sewell) also loved it and head coach Kirby Smart spent a lot of time with us and our parents. He’s really easy to talk to. I can’t wait till I can bring my whole family to visit, this time was just me and my dad.”

Sources say the Bulldogs made a big impression on not only the 2021 lineman Suamataia, but also with four-star linebacker Sewell, who appears to be a top target over the next few months. 

Suamataia is ranked as the number-11 offensive tackle prospect in the 2021 class and the number-63 player overall.
