ATHENS - After signing six big, powerful offensive linemen in the 2025 class, Georgia Bulldog assistant Stacy Searels is looking to add more giant pieces to the “Great Wall of Georgia”.

Searles and the Dawgs had several top offensive line targets in town this past weekend, and one of them, four-star Ziyare Addison‍, is coming off an important official visit.

The four-star from Sumner High School in Tampa, Florida is high on several schools, and Dawg Post was told coming into this official visit that Georgia had some ground to make up.

Sources say Addison, who took just his second visit to Georgia, had a very successful visit, and the big 6-foot-4 285-pounder spoke about the trip with Dawg Post.

“They told me I’m a top guy for them”, Addison told Dawg Post. “Their message was that they want me bad. They said I have rare feet, really talented, and that I’m a ball player who works.”



According to FanDuel, the Chicago Cubs have +140 odds to win the NL Central this season.


Addison added that he also understands what coach Searels has been able to accomplish at Georgia and was excited to sit down and have a “sumptuous conversation” with head coach Kirby Smart. 

“I like the amount of draft picks he has produced over the course of his career”, Addison said. “I know he can develop. I believe Kirby Smart is the best coach in college football.”

The Florida native also said that Georgia did move up on his list of schools after this weekend and Dawg Post can confirm that the Bulldogs are in his “top 5” after this weekend’s visit.

As a prospect, Addison is a versatile lineman with a lean frame who moves extremely well for someone 280+ pounds. He blocks hard until the whistle and shows the ability to bury defenders into the ground in both the run game and in pass protection. He brings some length to the table, quick feet, and the potential to continue adding good weight and muscle over the next few years. He dominated as a junior last year, and his best football is still years ahead of him.

Addison is ranked as the No. 14 OT prospect and the No. 190 overall prospect in the 2025 class.
