Brett Thorson Commits to Georgia Bulldogs
Punters and kickers typically don’t receive the attention that other prospects do, but there are many pairs of eyes on Thorson.
The 247Sports Composite considers him to be a three-star recruit, and he’s yet another fantastic piece that’s coming to Athens in 2022. Head coach Kirby Smart has been praised for his recruiting class time and time again, and UGA is setting itself up for years of success.
Coach Hartley made Thorson a priority, and as a result, the two men have built a great relationship.
Admittedly, a punter does not make or break a college football roster. But if Georgia is serious about contending with teams such as Alabama, Clemson, and Ohio State, they’ll need these recruiting victories at the margins.
Brett Thorson has serious hype surrounding him, and while it is rare for special teams players to have this happen, he could one day hear his name called in the NFL Draft.
