In terms of experience, the only position at Georgia thinner than tight end is quarterback. There’s Charlie Woerner, and then there’s this:
At Shiloh High, Kolby Wyatt was named a Gwinnett County scholar athlete of the year his sophomore, junior and senior seasons. Peyton Mercer graduated from Emanuel County Institute with a 4.0 grade point average and made the dean’s list last fall.
Wyatt and Mercer probably aren’t familiar names even to diehard Georgia football fans.
This spring, they happen to be among the top four tight ends for the Bulldogs.
There are three more coming in to join those two, along with Woerner and John Fitzpatrick. One of those is an early enrollee recovering from a torn ACL. Another is Tennessee grad transfer Eli Wolf, who had a whopping five catches last season for the Vols. (To be fair, Wolf is considered a good blocker for his position.)
Should Woerner go down, it’s hard to see much production coming out of the rest of this bunch in 2019.
