UGA OT announces his return to the Bulldogs

Offensive lineman Xavier Truss has made his decision on the NFL draft: He’s returning to the Bulldogs for the 2024 season.

Truss, a 6-foot-7, 320-pound lineman, will help the Bulldogs immensely. They’re already losing starting tackle Amarius Mims to the NFL draft. Truss was a key part of the Bulldogs’ offensive line; he filled in at multiple positions along the line when needed.

The senior offensive lineman has been with the Bulldogs since 2019 and has seen his role increase every season. In 2023, Truss was a coach’s second-team All-SEC selection. He has made 27 total starts, but has a wealth of playing time in games he hasn’t started. He could slot in at any spot on the offensive line, but he could be projected as a starting tackle.

Truss joins Tate Ratledge as the second offensive lineman to announce his return to the Bulldogs. The Bulldogs are welcoming both of these guys back along with Carson Beck, Smael Mondon and Nazir Stackhouse.

Georgia football should have a strong offensive line unit again in 2024.
