ATHENS - Well here’s something you don’t see often.

Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs are one of the best in the country at flipping big-time prospects, but they’ve never flipped a player from Georgia Tech.

That’s what happened today as Grayson (GA) interior offensive lineman Griffin Scroggs‍ de-committed from Georgia Tech on Monday, and has now publicly committed to Georgia. 

Scroggs committed to the Yellow Jackets earlier this summer on June 21st, but after taking a visit to the Classic City this past weekend, sources tell Dawg Post that Scroggs was ready to be a Bulldog.

Scroggs was in Athens in early June for a visit and worked out for offensive line coach Matt Luke. He left Athens that day with an offer and told Dawg Post that the Bulldogs were “at the top” of his recruitment. He would commit to Georgia Tech shortly after, but as we’ve seen, that commitment wouldn’t last very long.

What does it mean?

It means the Bulldogs just landed one of the toughest, nastiest linemen in the state. He’s tough, physical and can really open up holes in the trenches. The 6-foot-4, 315-pounder helped lead the Rams to the 7A state championship game last fall and will try to repeat this year as a senior. He’ll also bring some versatility to Georgia as he can play both center or guard at the next level.

The Rams staff believes his physicality is what makes him one of the state’s best linemen. Scroggs is extremely physical and opened up a lot of holes between the tackles for four-star running back Phil Mafah. He was a pancake machine last year and is expected to be even better season as a senior. The Gwinnett County standout plays hard to the whistle and is one of the best interior run-blockers in the state.

Overall, Scroggs has quite the resume. He's a state champion, a multi-year starter, and earned quite a few impressive D1 offers during his recruitment. At Grayson, Scroggs has battled against tough competition each week and plays as hard as he can every play. He fights hard and just has a knack for putting his opponent on the ground. He's versatile, aggressive, and will provide the Bulldogs with some depth on the interior. 

Where do the Bulldogs go from here?

Matt Luke and the Bulldogs hosted two other major offensive line targets this week in four-star Earnest Greene‍ and three-star Jacob Hood‍. Sources say the Bulldogs could have the lead behind the scenes for Hood over Miami, but they’ll have to fight off Alabama Ohio State, and others for Greene.

Scroggs gives Georgia their first offensive line commitment in the 2022 class and their 14th overall.
