ATHENS - Georgia Bulldogs tight end Oscar Delp spoke with the media Tuesday afternoon and offered the following comments about spring practices. 


On taking a leadership role in the tight end room after Brock Bowers' departure...

"Just taking all the things that I learned from my freshman and sophomore year, watching Brock and Darnell [Washington] practice and holding the standard that we hold here. Making sure you're at the front of every line and giving your all every rep you take out there, whether it's individual or in a team run period. Being coachable, and things like that."


On the feeling of being the oldest tight end in the room heading into next season...

"Yeah, it's crazy. I remember when I got here my first spring, and how crazy that is for a freshman to go through, so I know what those guys are going through and how they're feeling. It's definitely different to be on the other side of things finally."


On his early impressions of Jaden Reddell and Colton Heinrich during spring practices...

"Yeah, it's a lot coming at you with our offense and everything. I remember when I went through that, how I felt, and how it was. They are doing really well. They're coming in, watching film and learning. It's not easy as a freshman but they're going to be really good players."


As a sophomore last year, Delp played in every game during the 2023 season while starting in 10 games. He would catch 24 passes for 284 yards and three touchdowns. 

Georgia head coach Kirby Smart spoke briefly about Delp during his Tuesday press conference...

"Oscar is really physical. He does things his way. He is not Brock (Bowers). He doesn't try to be Brock. He is a quiet leader, similar to Brock, but he is really physical. He is tough. He knows the work ethic it requires. The guy is taking a lot of reps since being here. He has been durable. He is doing a good job leading in that room, as well as (Lawson) Luckie is and the two young kids."
