Georgia Football Recruiting: 4-Star WR/TE Commit Talks Dawgs, BIG Time 2016 Athlete Update, and More!
Recruiting Quick Hits
Christian Owens Talks Dawgs
Christian Owens – ☆☆☆☆
Griffin (Griffin, GA) WR/TE
Michael Carvell of the AJC caught up with Christian Owens the other day and found out some good news for Bulldog fans. It had been rumored that Owens was wavering on his commitment because of all the wide receivers that UGA already has committed, but that does not seem to be the case. Christian says that he is solid with his commitment and that he actually likes all the competition that awaits him in Athens because it will force him to step up his game.
Also interesting is that Owens denied the rumors that UGA plans on using him as a tight end. Now I still think he might play a little hybrid once he arrives at Georgia, but only time will tell.

Charlie Woerner Update
Charlie Woerner *2016 – ☆☆☆☆
Rabun County School (Tiger, GA) ATH
One of the top athletes in the state of Georgia for 2016 is Rabun County star, Charlie Woerner, nephew of former Bulldog, Scott Woerner. Right now, he’s defined as an athlete because he plays tight end, wide receiver, running back, defensive back, and H-Back. He’s a tremendous talent and really seems to have a good head on his shoulders. Woerner has been pretty quiet about his recruitment so far, but most predictions I’ve seen have him going with the Dawgs. This will certainly be an interesting recruit to watch over the next year, and you can bet that the Dawgs are going to do everything possible to land this freak athlete.

Dawg Commit, Justin Young, Update
Justin Young – ☆☆☆
Grayson (Loganville, GA) SDE
Justin Young has been playing well beyond his 3-star rating this season, and many believe a fourth star may be coming soon. He’s been terrorizing opposing offenses this year and is only a few sacks away from breaking Robert Nkemdiche’s (Ole Miss star) single season record. Young says that he is very solid with UGA, and he doesn’t plan to take anymore visits to other schools. I truly believe that Young is one of the most underrated players in this 2015 class, and I could see him being an absolute star once he arrives in Athens.
