Promising Replacement Oscar Delp to fill the shoes of Bowers in 2024

“Thank you dawg nation for the everlasting support you guys have shown me throughout my time here. Easily the best fans in the nation…. With that being said, I will officially be declaring for the 2024 NFL Draft.” That’s what UGA fans opened up their instagram on January 2nd to see. Brock Bowers is Officially forfeiting his last year of college football to go all in on the NFL. 

Although Brock Bowers will be a missed member of the UGA roster, the next tight end for the Dawgs has already been looked over and decided to be Oscar Delp. Delp has had 59 receptions, 968 all purpose yards, and 14 carries for 45 yards and one touchdown in his previous West Forsyth Blue. Being the #4 prospect in Georgia is an amazing resume for any college football player,  but fans still have a lingering sour taste in their mouths after having to let go of Bowers in the first place. 

Delp took the passive route to the passive aggressive comments, saying he’s “just trying to focus on my game and just be the next Oscar Delp.”

Delp doesn’t plan on just being the ‘replacement’ for the Dawgs in the coming years. Bowers may have left, but that hasn’t stopped Smart from commenting in multiple interviews that “there is no replacing Bowers”.  All Delp can do in the meantime is to keep working to prove UGA’s own fans wrong throughout the coming seasons.

Grace Welicky, Staff
A freshman at heart and seeking chauffeurs from every practice. I spend my days during the school year in front of a TV drawing and listening to production concept art processes on youtube. I plan to put this obsession to use through photography to tell awesome visual stories. Outside of school, I travel every weekend to play softball and this year, I came second in California (at the biggest stage for 14u softball). If I'm stranded at home, I kidnap my dog from her napping spot to sit with me and play Legend of Zelda until I get picked up by my friends to go out to eat. :)
