Who: Isaac Nauta

  • Hometown/High School: Buford, GA/IMG Academy
  • Rankings: No. 17 overall, No. 1 TE and No. 5 in GA

After decommiting from the Seminoles on July 28, Issac Nauta is back on the market. He is very effective as a blocking tight end and uses his 6-foot-4, 237-pound frame to take away defenders on the edge and give the quarterback extra time in the pocket. On the same token, he can use that size to get open quickly and be physical with his defenders.

The program that I see him going to is the Georgia Bulldogs. The SEC is known for their tough, physical play, and for that reason, I think he can match up well with the defenders and give the Bulldogs both a blocking and passing weapon that can allow them flexibility within their offense and give them the chance to have one of the most prolific offenses in the country.  Currently, the Bulldogs 2016 class ranks No. 10 nationally and No. 4 in the SEC per the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

He took unofficial visits to Georgia on November 15, June 28, and July 15, so it is not a stretch to say he is familiar with Georgia. The Bulldogs already have two five-star commits in Jacob Eason and Julian Rochester and a commitment from Brown would certainly vault the ‘Dawgs to the top of the SEC. Giving a young emerging quarterback in Eason a target like Nauta to throw to could only help the young signal-caller and give him a security blanket to throw to.

This commitment would be a key pickup for Georgia and the fact that it would be an in-state commitment is certainly a bonus for the program.
