Former Bulldog Ben Cleveland Helps Recruit For Kirby Smart and UGA

July 7, 2021

Dawg Post wrote about Georgia’s new recruiting phrase just a few days ago, and it has continued to circle around now to some former Bulldogs.

Some current Bulldogs have been tweeting #DelpIsADawg to four-star tight end target Oscar Delp, one of the Bulldog’s top targets in the 2022 class.

First it was Darnell Washington. Then John FitzPatrick. Then Jordan Davis. Then Brock Vandagriff. Then Jalon Walker. Then Brock Bowers.

Just about everyone connected to Georgia football tweeted out the phrase to the West Forsyth (star), and now some former Bulldogs are getting in on the fun.

Former UGA offense lineman Ben Cleveland got the trend going again today, tweeting out to Delp, who is coming down to Georgia, South Carolina, Michigan, Clemson, and Florida. 

A 3rd round pick of the Baltimore Ravens in the 2021 NFL Draft, Cleveland doesn’t have to be helping the Bulldog recruit an in-state tight end. He’s got more important things to think about. 

But he did it. It would be one thing to help land one of the nation’s top offensive linemen to help his former unit, but maybe that just shows how badly the ‘Dawgs want Delp. 

Maybe Kirby Smart reached out to Cleveland for the twee? Maybe Cleveland just loves some Georgia football? Maybe it’s both?

We’ve told ya’ll for 9 months how good Delp is, and he’s being recruited in a way not many have from Georgia in years past.

Are we going to see some tweets from Matthew Stafford? Will Herschel Walker start tweeting #DelpIsADawg? I don’t think it will get to THAT point, but I guess crazier things have happened.

It just means more at the SEC, and it means more to Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs. 

Delp is ranked as the No.6 player in the state according to Dawg Post and ranked as the No.85 overall prospect in the 2022 class.
