Georgia Football: Bulldogs Recruiting and the Three Who Could Make It Special

0 of 3

    With signing day less than a month from now, the tension grows as each recruit is coming close to signing on the dotted line.  Georgia already has 16 commitments so far, with five being in the ESPNU 150.  There are three particular players that could make this a very special class.  They are as follows:

    DT - John Atkins

    Thomson, GA

    6'4", 300 lbs.


    K - Collin Barber

    Cartersville, GA

    6'2", 191 lbs.


    QB - Faton Bauta

    West Palm Beach, FL

    6'3", 225 lbs.


    OL - Mark Beard

    Coffeyville, KS

    6'4", 290 lbs.


    OL - Chester Brown

    Hinesville, GA

    6'5", 340 lbs.


    DE - James Deloach

    Millen, GA

    6'3", 260 lbs.


    DE - Leonard Floyd

    Eastman, GA

    6'4", 215 lbs.



    RB - Quayvon Hicks

    Blackshear, GA

    6'2", 245 lbs.


    DE - Jordan Jenkins

    Hamilton, GA

    6'3", 245 lbs.


    RB - Keith Marshall

    Raleigh, NC

    5'11", 190 lbs.


    K - Marshall Morgan

    Miami, FL

    6'3", 195 lbs.


    OL - Greg Pyke

    Baltimore, MD

    6'6", 315 lbs.


    TE - Ty Smith

    Moultrie, GA

    6'3", 228 lbs.


    DT - Jonathan Taylor

    Millen, GA

    6'4", 315 lbs.


    OL - John Theus

    Jacksonville, FL

    6'6", 292 lbs.


    WR - Blake Tibbs

    Lithonia, GA

    6'2", 185 lbs.

OT Avery Young

1 of 3

    Avery Young

    6'5", 292 lbs.

    • Hometown - Palm Beach Gardens, FL
    • School - Palm Beach Gardens High
    • Position - Offensive Tackle

    The Bulldogs will be losing three key offensive lineman; Justin Anderson, Cordy Glenn and Ben Jones. They have already got a commitment from one of the best offensive tackles, John Theus, of Jacksonville.  Avery Young would be a great step in rebuilding the offensive line.

RB Mike Davis

2 of 3

    Mike Davis

    5'10", 190 lbs.

    • Hometown - Stone Mountain, GA
    • School - Stephenson High
    • Position - Running Back

    You can never have too many running backs.  Keith Marshall will be coming in, but the future for Crowell is murky.  Davis could be great insurance if Crowell doesn't pan out and he, along with Marshall and/or Crowell, would give the Bulldogs the two-headed monster at running back they have lacked.

CB Yuri Wright

3 of 3

    Yuri Wright

    6'1", 185 lbs.

    • Hometown - Ramsey, NJ
    • School - Don Bosco High 
    • Position - Cornerback

    After losing "Mr. Do-It-All," Brandon Boykin, the Bulldogs desperately need someone to step into a similar role.  Wright played for the No. 1 high school team in the nation, so playing under the bright lights of the SEC shouldn't phase him.  He would be a gift.
