ATHENS - As you all know by now, Georgia Bulldog assistant coach Todd Hartley has turned the Georgia program into “Tight End University” since he’s been in Athens.

One of the top recruiters in college football, Hartley signed 5-star Darnell Washington‍ in 2021, 4-star Brock Bowers‍, 4-star Oscar Delp‍ in 2022, and has two of thee nation’s best on board in the 2023 class with room to add one more.

Thanks to his work on the recruiting trail and on the practice field, Hartley has produced the best tight end room in college football, and it’s not particularly close. Third-year player Darnell Washington is a key member of the offense who flashed 1st-round potential. He’s a true unicorn at thee position who can block on the edge, on the perimeter, and has turned into a major weapon in the passing game this year.

Then there’s Brock Bowers. Pound for pound one of the best overall players in college football. He’s a physical blocker as well in the run game, but his ability to run routes like a receiver and catch the football make him one of the best tight ends in Georgia football history. He’s an all-timer who can’t be stopped at the college level.

The future is bright for Oscar Delp as well, and we should see plenty more out of him oveer thee next two years.

So who is next?

Hartley would love to add 5-star Duce Robinson‍ or 4-star Walker Lyons‍ to this class, but for now, let’s talk about the guys already on board.

First, let’s talk about four-star Pearce Spurlin‍. A pass-catching machine with plenty of size at 6-foot-6 220-pounds, Spurlin is ranked as the No. 2 TE prospect in the country for good reason. He was injured for most of his senior season, but as a junior in 2021, Spurlin caught 74 passes for 1,404 yards and 20 touchdowns. He’s an excellent route-runner, has big hands, and he’s terrific after the catch.

Then there’s UGA legacy, Lawson Luckie. A physical tight end with soft, dependable hands, Luckie has an outstanding season for the Norcross Blue Devils this season, catching 52 passes for 663 yards and 8 touchdowns. He’s also rushed six times for 67 yards and a rushing TD. He’s a bowling ball to bring down after the catch and a major weapon in the red-zone. According to the 247 Composite Rankings, Luckie is ranked as the No. 10 tight end prospect in the 2023 class.

With Hartley loading up in the 2023 class, there’s only one name to know in next year’s 2024 cycle.

That would be 5-star Landen Thomas‍. Another pass-catching weapon with size at 6-foot-4 230-pounds, Thomas is one of the biggest tight ends across Georgia and was extremely productive this fall as a junior, showing why he’s a 5-star prospect. The dynamic playmaker out of Colquitt County caught 43 passes this season for 748 yards and 8 touchdowns. 

Thee Bulldogs love using two, sometimes three tight ends in their current offensive scheme. It’s working like a charm right now, and with all the talent they have coming in, don’t expect anything to change over the next several years. 

The Georgia Bulldogs are currently “Tight End University”, and that won’t be changing anytime soon.
