Sedrick Van Pran delivered some welcome news for Georgia fans on Friday. The starting center is returning to Athens for another season with the Bulldogs.

Van Pran made his 2023 return official on social media. Having completed 3 seasons at UGA, Van Pran was eligible to declare for the 2023 NFL Draft.

Van Pran made his Georgia debut in 2020 off the bench against Auburn. He also saw action that season against 3 other SEC opponents (Tennessee, South Carolina, Missouri).

For the past 2 seasons, Van Pran has started every game for the Bulldogs at center. The 6-4, 310-pound New Orleans native out of Warren Easton High School will anchor the starting offensive line for the back-to-back national champions.
