Auburn (Ala.) High School LB Reuben Foster
As far as recruiting weekends go, this could be the biggest of the year between the hedges.
The Georgia Bulldogs will host 247Sports.com 5-star linebacker Reuben Foster from Auburn (Ala.) High School, 5-star defensive tackle Montravius Adams from Dooly County (Ga.) High School and 4-star running back Alvin Kamara from Norcross (Ga.) High School.
Talk about a star-studded weekend.
If the Bulldogs land all three, it would solidify the class as one of the best in the country.
Can Georgia pull off the trifecta?
It would take some work, but it's certainly not out of the question.
Georgia is leading the charge to secure the services of Adams along with Clemson, with Alabama, Florida and Auburn trailing not too far behind. Adams told Rivals.com that the visit to Georgia this weekend is more about his mother becoming acquainted with the campus and the program rather than for him; which leads me to believe that Georgia is very much a contender.
The Bulldogs have a fight on their hands, primarily with Clemson, but certainly have a good shot to land Adams.
The same can be said for running back Alvin Kamara.
Kamara has essentially narrowed his choices down to Georgia and Alabama, and visited Tuscaloosa last weekend.
Whichever school he chooses, Kamara would find himself fighting for playing time.
Alabama has had a ton of success churning out top-tier running backs to the NFL since Nick Saban took over, but Kamara would likely find himself behind sophomore T.J. Yeldon and fighting for playing time with senior Jalston Fowler, sophomore Dee Hart, sophomore Kenyan Drake, early freshman enrollee Derrick Henry and potentially two other quality running back commitments in the class of 2013.
That's quite the traffic jam.
He would find himself behind sophomores Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall at Georgia, but could potentially redshirt and still ease his way into significant playing time between the hedges down the road.
Athens is a 45-minute drive, give or take, from Norcross. The Bulldogs offer a comparatively easier path to stardom, too. That should give Georgia a slight edge over Alabama.
Foster is the long shot.
The former commitment to Alabama and Auburn de-committed from the Tigers on Dec. 7, and will likely choose between Auburn, Alabama, Georgia, Washington and LSU on National Signing Day.
Will Georgia land Reuben Foster, Alvin Kamara and Montravius Adams?
Georgia has been gaining ground in the chase for Foster, but he said on Fox Sports South's New College Football Show: Next Class 2013 that he owed it to Auburn to take an official visit on the final weekend before National Signing Day, and that staying close to his two-year-old daughter and the rest of his family is very important to him.
That certainly bodes well for Auburn.
Since Foster is more of a long shot than the other two star prospects, I'd say that the odds aren't good for Georgia landing all three. We'll go with 20 percent.
However, if the Bulldogs land two of the three, that's still a strong way for Mark Richt to close during the recruiting season.
It should be an interesting 12 days between now and National Signing Day.
