‘22 No. 3 Tight End Oscar Delp Commits to the University of Georgia

Oscar Delp

The University of Georgia has had a very productive 2021 season on and off the field thus far. Not only are the Bulldogs currently the No. 1 team in the nation; their ‘22 recruiting class is also ranked in the top-five. Wednesday afternoon the Bulldogs added to that recruiting class with one of the top tight ends in the nation Oscar Delp.

Oscar Delp is a four-star tight end out of Cumming, Georgia located less than an hour north of Atlanta. He stands 6’5, weighs 220-pounds and plays for West Forsyth High School. Being one of the top tight ends in the nation it is no surprise he holds 33 offers from schools all over the country. This June he took four visits to Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and Michigan but ended up including Clemson over Florida in his top-four schools.

According to 247Sports Delp is a top-100 player in the class of 2022, as well as a top-10 recruit in the state of Georgia. This now gives the Bulldogs their fourth commitment from a top-10 recruit in the state of Georgia. Delp’s commitment also boosts their class ranking from 5th in the nation to 3rd. 

He joins four-star quarterback Gunner Stockton who recently just broke Deshaun Watson’s record for most career passing touchdowns in Georgia. The Bulldogs also have defensive studs in Tyre West, a four-star defensive lineman, and Malaki Starks who is a five-star linebacker. 

Georgia has been able to land plenty of top tier talent at the tight end position, and more importantly, found ways for them to be used on the field. In 2020 the Bulldogs landed Darnell Washington who was a five-star athlete coming out of Las Vegas, Nevada. This past summer they also landed former five-star tight end Arik Gilbert who transferred from LSU. Oscar Delp mentioned that the Bulldogs use of freshman tight end Brock Bowers was a big factor in his commitment to the team.

The Bulldogs are still hot on the trail of five-star prospects like Luther Burden, Bear Alexander, and Kamari Wilson. Luther Burden is set to make his decision between Missouri, Oklahoma, and Georgia next week. Alexander will be announcing his commitment sometime in January between Texas A&M or Georgia. If they keep this up we could see Georgia finish with the No. 1 class in the nation as well as a national championship.
