Ex-Stanford TE Benjamin Yurosek commits to Georgia

Former Stanford tight end Benjamin Yurosek confirmed Friday he is transferring to Georgia.

The 6-foot-4, 242-pound senior caught 108 passes for 1,342 yards and five touchdowns as a three-year starter for the Cardinal from 2021-23.

Yurosek told ESPN he was attracted to Georgia because of the competition in the Southeastern Conference and for the way the Bulldogs deploy their tight ends.

“Obviously Georgia has the best of both worlds,” Yurosek said. “They have big-time football and the use of tight ends.”

He will help the Bulldogs replace All-American Brock Bowers, regarded as the top tight end in the 2024 NFL Draft class.

Yurosek is finishing his undergraduate degree at Stanford this quarter before enrolling at Georgia.
