Blazevich joins strong lineage of UGA TEs

Class of 2014 tight end Jeb Blazevich (Charlotte, N.C./Charlotte Christian) had his pick of programs that have turned out solid tight ends in recent seasons before committing to Georgia on Tuesday.

With all due respect to the Notre Dames, Stanfords and Clemsons of the college football world, no program has been more successful at attracting quality tight ends over the past decade than Georgia. In Blazevich, the Bulldogs add one of highest-rated tight ends to have committed to the program since ESPN began compiling recruiting rankings in 2006.

The No. 90 overall prospect on the ESPN 150 and the No. 3 tight end-H, Blazevich hopes to continue Georgia’s longstanding tradition under coach Mark Richt of incorporating tight ends into the passing game.
