    UGA football recruiting update for the week of March 15, 2016 as Kirby Smart continues to sell prospects on Georgia.


    UGA recruiting had a bit of a slow week, but you had to figure Kirby Smart was due for at least one in his tenure as Bulldogs head coach.

    It’s not like UGA was completely inactive. It did make some noise in the form of two scholarship offers.

    The Bulldogs extended an offer to 3-star tight end Tre McKitty, from Bradenton, Fla. At 6-foot-4, 235 lbs McKitty is an ideal weapon in the end zone and a safety blanket for quarterbacks. He runs well, but he needs to work on his routes.

    UGA also extended an offer to K.J. Britt, the No. 32 inside linebacker in the class and native of Oxford, Ala. Britt has ideal size for the position at 6-foot-1, 230 lbs. He plays with aggression and intensity, leveling running backs when he hits them.

    Below is how UGA’s 2017 class looks right now.
