ATHENS - Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs are the hottest football team in the country both on the field, and on the recruiting trail.

After a massive recruiting weekend in Athens, the dominoes are starting to fall with public commitments.

One prospect who jumped on board this week was three-star Colton Heinrich‍. He may not be as highly ranked as Brock Bowers, Darnell Washington, Oscar Delp, and Georgia’s two incoming tight ends from the 2023 class, but if Todd Hartley wants your commitment, that means you’re one hell of a player.

Hartley turned Darnell Washington into a 3rd-round NFL Draft pick as the Steelers selected him with the No. 93 overall pick in the 2023 Draft. With Washington on board, the Steelers have +600 odds to win the AFC North next fall according to FanDuel.

The 6-foot-3 230-pounder spoke with Dawg Post about why he chose Georgia and what stands out the most about tight ends coach Todd Hartley.

“The best part of my visit was getting the chance to work out with Dylan Raiola”, Heinrich said. “He set up a little throwing session at a local high school and it was awesome. UGA is special because of its culture. They treat everyone like family. They are always competing which gets everyone going and they know how to use the heck out of the tight ends.”

Georgia assistant Todd Hartley is the best tight ends coach in college football, and he’s become a 5-star ace recruiter over the last several years. Hartley worked his magic, and Heinrich explained how Georgia’s assistant won over him and his family.

“His drive and his knowledge of the game is unmatched”, Heinrich said. “He gives everything he has day in and day out. He will let you know how you’re doing real quick.”

So what will Heinrich bring to Athens? What are his best traits? Dawg Post spoke with Cardinal Gibbons’ WR coach Conroy Whyte for the details.

“He's been a joy to coach”, Whyte told Dawg Post. “He's a physical TE who uses his body well to shield off defenders. He catches the ball with his hands really well. He's not afraid to go across the middle and make the tough catches. He gets along with all of his teammates. He also blocks well in tight spaces. Georgia’s getting a great talent that's going to work hard and give you everything he got! The best part about him is he still has a lot more game in there that I know they are going to bring out!”
