Tannor Commits to UGA


Georgia picked up one of the elite pass-rushers in the state of Georgia today with the commitment of Miller Grove rising senior defensive end Caleb Tannor.

The 2018 star had a breakout season last fall after a very promising sophomore year. Colleges soon took notice, especially after our position rankings were published at the beginning of February, and several FBS schools offered almost over night. His first power 5 offer came by way of Maryland, and by the time it was spring Tannor’s recruitment had really picked up, and he was quickly becoming one of the most coveted players during the offseason. 

On March 18th, Tannor received an offer from UGA after taking a visit, which was a pivotal moment in his recruitment. Not only was it a dream offer but it also affirmed the 2018 sack-artist as a legit Power 5 recruit. Soon after Auburn, Alabama, Michigan State and Florida offered. Tannor ended up with well over 20 offers but his decision eventually came down to Auburn and Georgia, where ultimately the Bulldogs won out.

At the next level Tannor has the ability to be an impact pass-rusher that can get important stops on 3rd down passing situations. He has good height at 6’3″, a long frame to continue to add on weight, and a lightening-fast first step that is tough for most linemen to react to. He has elite lateral quickness, which allows him to change directions unlike most pass-rushers. We are also very impressed with his ability to read the mesh on the read-option and he effectively stops the ball carrier in the backfield with thunderous tackles. 

Tannor is the 9th commit for Georgia in the class of 2018, and the 5th player from the state of Georgia. At UGA we expect him to play outside linebacker, and his elite speed will be utilized in a number of ways. But first he has one more season at Miller Grove, where his squad is looking to build off last season, and be a factor come the postseason.
