Georgia picks up class of 2017 commit in Pace Academy's Trey Blount

By Jason Butt

Georgia didn’t strike out completely in receiver recruiting Sunday.

The Bulldogs picked up a verbal commitment from Pace Academy wideout Trey Blount. Blount is considered a four-star receiver, according to the composite, and holds offers from at least 27 college programs.

Blount announced his decision on his Twitter account.

Blount’s news came a few hours after the nation’s No. 1 receiver in the class of 2016, Savannah Christian Prep’s Demetris Robertson, announced he would play for California over Georgia and Notre Dame.

Blount is considered the state of Georgia’s fourth-best receiver in class of 2017.
