Recruiting momentum builds fast for Tyler Fromm, younger brother of Jake Fromm

Tyler Fromm

Here’s a thought: If Jake Fromm took Georgia to the College Football Playoff final in his first year, maybe his brother could be a good prospect, too.

That’s the thinking for programs around the country who are bombarding Tyler Fromm, a high school junior, with offers.

Three-star tight end Tyler Fromm is suddenly a red-hot prospect after his older brother’s success in leading the Bulldogs to within seconds of the national championship.

Just how hot? Tyler Fromm has picked up four offers in the last week, including one from Pac-12 powerhouse USC.

Four in a week. At this rate, he’ll have 196 offers (more than the entire number of Football Bowl Subdivision programs) by National Signing Day 2019.

For now, that list doesn’t include his brother’s team, Georgia. The Bulldogs are loaded at tight end, with Isaac Nauta and Charlie Woerner returning and two of the nation’s top 20 tight end recruits, Luke Ford and John FitzPatrick, signing in the 2018 class.

But Will Muschamp and South Carolina are among those on the trail of the younger Fromm, a 6-foot-5, 225-pound tight end from Warner Robins (Ga.) High.

As a high school junior in 2017, he caught 43 passes for 529 yards and five touchdowns as the Demons advanced to the GHSA Class AAAAA title game. They lost in the final to Rome High, a team led by five-star Georgia signee Adam Anderson.

And the quarterback throwing him those passes? His twin, Dylan, who threw 35 touchdown passes last season but hasn’t received any FBS offers.
