Dawgs add specialist Jared Zirkel to the mix for Class of 2020
Georgia stayed hot on the recruiting trail this week, adding a second commitment to go along with four-star offensive lineman Joshua Braun.
This time, it's Tivy High School (Kerrville, Texas) kicker Jared Zirkel who's in the fold for the Class of 2020.
Zirkel, 6-foot-3 and 190-pounds, recently visited Athens, where he won a kicking competition against a field of 150 other specialists, according to Kicking World.
The Texas-based specialist is no stranger to Athens, having visited the Bulldogs earlier this year both in February and for G-Day.
Zirkel confirmed to UGASports.com that he received a scholarship offer from the Bulldogs, as opposed the walk-on route originally taken by current placekicker Rodrigo Blankenship.
Georgia won out over offers from Army and Air Force.
He becomes the thirteenth member of the Class of 2020.
