4-star DL on UGA: "They Push All Of Their Players To Be Great"

April 11, 2022

ATHENS - Georgia Bulldog DL coach Tray Scott has quickly become one of the top assistants in all of college football, and he’s ready to build another elite DL class in 2023.

Scott has plenty of elite prospects on his board, and Dawg Post expects him to sign one of the best classes across the country in 2023.

One of his targets, in-state DL TJ Searcy‍, was in Athens over the weekend and spoke with Dawg Post about what he likes most about Georgia.

“My favorite part about the UGA visit was probably watching the players scrimmage and get after it” Searcy said. “Something that really makes UGA special in my eyes is the way that they push all of their players to be great. Another thing that’s special is how hard they work.”

Searcy also added a small tidbit on coach Scott.

“Coach Scott is just a really cool coach that knows how to relate to his players very well.”

Right now, it appears other schools are pushing harder for Searcy than the Bulldogs are. That being said, the Upson Lee (GA) standout is one to still keep an eye on if Scott and the Bulldogs turn up the heat on his recruitment.


Scott will also have two targets in Athens on Tuesday. One of them is four-star interior DL Xzavier McLeod‍. The massive 6-foot-4 325-pounder out of Camden (SC) is a player to keep a close eye on as the Bulldogs are looking to add another big body in this class to handle the middle of Georgia’s defensive line. Right now, sources believe the in-state South Carolina Gamecocks could be the team to beat. He’s the No. 3 prospect in South Carolina for the 2023 class.



Another target in town on Tuesday is 4-star EDGE defender Dashawn Womack‍. The 6-foot-4 255-pounder defender is one of the top overall prospects in Maryland for the 2023 class, ranked No. 4 overall in the state.
