HOOVER, Ala. -- Although the brothers likely won't be on the field at the same time, Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm is excited for the matchup against Auburn as his brother Tyler is an incoming tight end for the Tigers.
“I think it’s an unbelievable opportunity for our family and for people who watch family closely. It’s going to be fun for us and [I] can’t wait,” Jake said at SEC Football Media Days.
When November rolls around, it'll be the first time the brothers have shared the field since Jake's senior year at Houston County High in Warne Robins, Georgia.
“It’s going to be awesome," Jake said. "It might be a little tough for everyone else in the family, but I think it’s going to be awesome, especially for me and Tyler to go out before the game, especially during the game and then after the game. It’s going to be a special moment for us – one ou family can cherish together."
After not being by his brother's school, Tyler, a three-star tight end, signed with Auburn over LSU and Florida. Tyler's twin, Dylan, also played at Houston County High with the pair and is now a quarterback at Mercer.
Jake said he would have loved of his brother sign with Georgia, but he's excited to be playing against him at the next level.
"It was tough," Jake said. For us, it was where can you go in and what place really fits you best. For him, he that was there. It was great for our family, great for him. I’m excited he’s there and excited fo him to go play football."

With Georgia coming to Jordan-Hare for the first time since a blowout loss when the Bulldogs were No.1 in the county in 2017, Jake thinks his brother may be able to help him out.
"We have to kind of change the way we prepare because they're so good along the defensive front; hopefully my brother can give me a couple clues as to what they're doing on defense," he said with a laugh.
