Georgia Lands A Sleeper

The Georgia Bulldogs received a commitment this past weekend from the ultimate sleeper.
"No one has really heard about me at all," said Warner Robins (Ga.) Houston County tight end/defensive end Trahern Holden. "I was actually surprised when they offered me because I didn't go to any camps this summer or any combines this spring. Not many schools really knew about me."
Georgia knew enough to covet the 6-foot-4, 240-pounder. The Bulldogs and Wake Forest had offered while schools like Indiana, Clemson, South Carolina and Vanderbilt were also recruiting him.
"I visited UGA this weekend and the coaches offered me. I didn't hesitate for a second. My mom was very happy too. She went to Georgia and we both really like the academics, atmosphere and coaches," he said. "I want to major in engineering or something close to that. I was just really excited when they offered me."
Holden has five catches this season and has done a lot of blocking so far.
"I'll play defensive end this weekend too," he said. "UGA wants me as a tight end, but I can play either."
