On Monday, Georgia freshman tight end Isaac Nauta was named to the Pro Football Focus Freshman All-American team. Earlier, Nauta was named a Freshman All-American by USA Today, ESPN and 247Sports, as well as Freshman All-SEC honors from conference coaches and Athlon Sports, among others.
Pro Football Focus, a leading football analytics publication had this to say about the former five-star IMG Academy star.
By far the best true freshman tight end in the country, Nauta finished with 353 yards on 27 catches as he developed early chemistry with fellow true freshman quarterback Jacob Eason. Nauta was a key weapon for the Georgia passing game, lining up on the outside and in the slot quite a bit as he dwarfed the rest of the nation’s true freshman tight ends statistically.
Nauta and Georgia conclude the season December 30th in the Liberty Bowl vs. the Big 12’s TCU Horned Frogs.
