Georgia Football: 2013 Recruiting Targets Still Available
Spring football is officially underway for the Bulldogs, and they are looking forward to seeing some of the new faces that have signed with the team in February, such as Faton Bauta, Mark Beard and Keith Marshall.
However, Mark Richt and the coaching staff have also been hard at work putting together another top recruiting class for 2013.
So far, eight players have committed to the Bulldogs, and they hope to have a lot more commit before the fall season kicks off.
And trust me when I say there are a lot of great players the Bulldogs are going after.
Here's some of the top targets that are still available for the Bulldogs.
Robert Nkemdiche: DE, Grayson HS, Loganville, GA
This defensive end from Loganville, Ga., is the best recruit in the country, and the Bulldogs are working hard to make sure he stays in-state.
Standing at 6'5", 260 pounds, Nkemdiche is a rare talent that only comes once in a lifetime.
It has been reported that he has UGA is in his top five and will make a decision on May 18 when Grayson has its spring scrimmage.
Johnny O'Neal: LB, West Laurens HS, Dublin, GA
Ranked as the No. 3 inside linebacker in the country and the No. 88 overall player according to Rivals, O'Neal is everything you want in a football player because he's strong, fast and a hard worker.
Standing at 6'2", 225 pounds, O'Neal has the right frame to play inside linebacker in the Bulldogs' 3-4 scheme.
He has narrowed down his to schools to Georgia, Georgia Tech, Florida State, LSU and Alabama.
Hunter Henry: TE, Pulaski Academy, Little Rock, AK
Ranked as the sixth best tight end in the country according to Rivals, Henry has gotten offers from all over the country.
Henry is a big target that had a big 2011 season with 64 receptions 1,091 yards and 16 touchdowns.
He may love in Arkansas and has gotten offers from schools in the area like Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas Tech. But the Bulldogs may have a slight edge in recruiting because Henry lived in Kennesaw, Ga., for 10 years before moving to Little Rock.
Rueben Foster: ILB, Troup HS, LaGrange, GA
Rueben Foster is going to be an interesting recruit to watch over the next eight to nine months because even though he committed to Alabama last summer, he is still considering Georgia and is taking other visits to different schools.
Foster is considered as the No. 2 overall player in the country, and even though the Bulldogs have targeted other great linebackers, adding Foster would take the defense to new heights.
Brandon Kublanow: OL, Walton HS, Marietta, Ga
A center has to be able to push interior linemen at the point of attack, and Brandon Kublanow has been doing that for Walton High School the last few years.
Kublanow would be very effective at the center position at the college level, but can also play guard if needed.
With Athens only a hour-and-a-half away from Marietta, the Bulldogs will be sure they can get one of the best centers in the country.
Laremy Tunsil: OL, Columbia HS, Lake City, FL
Behind Nkemdiche and Foster, Laremy Tunsil is considered by many as the third best player in the country.
Because of his size and athleticism, Tunsil is considered an elite offensive tackle who is a can't-miss.
His top three consists of Georgia, Florida and Florida State, but his decision will have to wait until National Signing Day.
Shamire DeVine: OL, Tri Cities HS, East Point, GA
Shamire DeVine is a monster as he stands at 6'7" and 340 pounds. And because of his size, he punishes opponents on a weekly basis.
He has the tools and the moxie to play right tackle, but will have to make sure his weight does not get out of control once he gets to college.
The Bulldogs are looking at him as one of the top offensive lineman targets along with Kublanow and Tunsil.
Ahmad Fluwood: WR, Bishop Kenny HS, Jacksonville, FL
Ahmad Fluwood is one of the top, if not the top, pass catcher in Florida and would go great with a group that has Michael Bennett, Chris Conley and Malcolm Mitchell.
According to Rivals, Fluwood has the Bulldogs, Ohio State, Alabama, Arkansas and Clemson high on his list.
With the state of Georgia down on wide receiver talent this year, it's essential that the Bulldogs have to get receivers from the pipeline, and Fluwood is certainly on the top of their list.
Montravius Adams: DT, Dooly County HS, Vienna, GA
The defensive line will be a huge need next year, so the Bulldogs are getting a head start by targeting the best defensive tackle in the state.
Montravuis Adams has 84 tackles and 10 sacks last season and doesn't show any signs of slowing down because of all the attention.
Even though Clemson is leading the recruiting race for Adams, the Bulldogs are still working hard to convince him that Athens is the place to be in 2013.
