Countdown to UGA-OSU: 84 Days (#84 Bryce Ros)

#84 Bryce Ros, TE
6-4, 235, Kennesaw GA (Kennesaw Mountain HS), RS Freshman

Bryce's father Frank was a linebacker and captain of the 1980 National Championship team, but that was certainly not the only reason that UGA went after him. Ros had a list of impressive schools after him, including Auburn, North Carolina, Virginia Tech, and Clemson. He was a Top 50 player in Georgia in the 2008 class, and widely considered one of the Top 25 tight end prospects in the nation. There was alot of talk coming into UGA prior to the 2008 season that he might end up playing on the other side of the ball, and although Bryce has indicated he'd be willing to do it if asked, that looks to be a long shot. Ros is locked in (for now) at tight end.

Depth Chart Analysis: With Bruce Figgins' suspension, Ros stands a much better chance of playing this year. He's currently listed on the depth chart at the #2 tight end spot. The competition figures to pick up once Orson Charles and Arthur Lynch get on campus, but Ros isn't conceding anything. Expect to see him getting some meaningful playing time in 2009, especially in the early part of the season.
