Countdown to UGA-OSU: 86 Days (Arthur Lynch)

Arthur Lynch, TE
6-5, 240, Dartmouth MA (Dartmouth HS), True Freshman

Lynch was a big find for the UGA coaching staff out of the Northeast, continuing the good work up that way from the past few years. Widely considered one of the Top 5 tight end prospects in the nation, Lynch chose the Dawgs over the closer to home Boston College Eagles. He competed in the Under Armour All-American game and made a big impression on both the scouts in attendance and his teammates. He's a complete tight end with great blocking and receiving skills, and will have every opportunity to play in Athens early in his career.

Depth Chart Analysis: I wouldn't be at all surprised to see him battling for early playing time. Orson Charles is likely to see some time at slot receiver, but Lynch is more of a traditional tight end. There's a good chance both will play as true freshmen, especially with Figgins suspended for 6 games and not alot of experience on the rest of the roster.

Famous #86's in UGA history: TE Randy McMichael, OL Dick Yelvington, DE Barry Wilson

The sleeper of this class? With he and Charles we just might be getting back to TE U.
