Pine Bluff (Ark.) four-star tight end Will Gragg is a versatile weapon on the football field and he has seen his offer list grow and grow and keep on growing over the course of the recruiting process.
One of the latest schools to offer the 6-foot-4, 241-pound tight end was the Georgia Bulldogs. Before the offer, Gragg had not received much attention from the Bulldogs, but that quickly changed with a message from Georgia tight ends coach John Lilly.
"He DM'd me on Twitter and told me to give him a call," Gragg said. "So I gave him a call and he said they've been watching me for awhile and they checked out the film and they want to offer me."

Gragg has not had much of a chance to develop a relationship with the Georgia coaching staff, but he is already informed about the Bulldog program.
"I've watched them for awhile and one of my favorite tight ends came from Georgia, Orson Charles, back in the day," Gragg said. "I know coach Richt and they like to throw the ball to the tight end."
The Georgia coaches were quick to let him know how they thought he could fit into the program right away.
"They felt like I could bring depth to the position. I know they have a couple of guys up there now who are older," Gragg said. "He said they really liked me style and they feel I could come in and fit in at the position and put my mark on Georgia football."
Gragg likes what he knows about the Bulldogs and there is some definite interest.
"They're definitely a player," Gragg said. "They're a place I want to take time and go up there and visit as soon as possible and continue to build a relationship."
Georgia is not the only program he plans to visit in the near future.
"I want to get down to Texas again before my official visit," Gragg said. "I want to get down to LSU and Florida State. I go back up to Arkansas on (April) 26 and I plan to get to Ole Miss (April) 18 but I don't know about that yet."
Gragg plans to take an official visit to Texas for the Longhorns Sept. 6 match-up with BYU, and he also plans to visit Florida State when they host the Clemson Tigers.
Alabama is another program Gragg is closely watching, and both Mississippi State and Clemson have been coming on strong.
There are a few schools high on his list, but Gragg is also not in a rush to make any announcements. At this time he plans to narrow the list to six or seven around late August or early September.
"It changes every day. Like Georgia they're definitely in the mix now that I have the offer, but I'm going to wait until the end of the summer to release it just when I'm sure and I've had a chance to visit the campuses."
As for his decision, keep an eye on a Tuesday in mid-November.
"I set it up as November 18," Gragg said. "That way I'll be able to get all my officials in and take the time that I need."
