The Dawgs received their third commitment from a defensive player and fourth overall for the 2010 recruiting class on Saturday. The commitment came from B.J. Butler, a 6'3" 240-pound outside linebacker out of Kissimmee, FL.

Butler picked the Dawgs over Kentucky, Alabama, Florida, Florida St., Texas Tech, UCF, and Colorado State. Butler will join a high school teammate Marc Deas in Athens next fall.

Deas, a 6'0" 185-pound inside linebacker from Kissimmee, FL, also committed to the Dawgs on April 11. Joining Butler and Deas as the defensive commitments is 6'5" 250-pound defensive end Jalen Fields.

Fields was the Dawgs first commitment back in March when he picked Georgia over Ole Miss, Tennessee, Alabama, West Virginia, and Florida State.

The only offensive player to commit so far is highly touted 6'5" 270-pound offensive guard Kolton Houston out of Buford, GA.

Houston committed to the Dawgs on Apr. 11 after being offered scholarships from Georgia Tech, Maryland, Michigan State, South Carolina, Stanford, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Auburn, and Clemson.

The recruiting process is underway and we look forward to another top-10 recruiting class in 2010.
