UGA Tight End launches the Twitter trend
Junior tight end John Fitzpatrick took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon to openly recruit current four-star tight end Oscar Delp. Delp is the third tight end in the recruiting class of 2022 and is at the top of Georgia’s board.
FitzPatrick tweeted the hashtag #DelpIsADawg which gets Georgia fans talking about the potential hiring of one of the best targets in the class and would be an announcement that could help turn the tide on the recent “loss of momentum” on the recruitment trail after a busy June.
In June, Delp made his five visits when he saw Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Michigan and South Carolina. During his visit to Athens, the much-vaunted tight end was pictured alongside current UGA pledges Gunnar Stockton (QB), DeNylon Morrisette and other unengaged prospects Branson Robinson (RB) and Kojo Antwi (WR). These five rookies would be known as Georgia’s potential “Fab Five” if UGA could get them all to Athens.
This recent trend is in response to Delp’s last visit to South Carolina, where they started a #WeWantDelp Twitter trend.
Delp has yet to set a timeline for a hiring decision, but is expected to step down from the board at some point early this fall. He is heavily recruited by programs like Clemson, Alabama, South Carolina, Michigan and of course Georgia. He visited all five schools this summer and at this point in his recruitment he is considered a skinny Georgian.
