    Georgia has a commitment from 5-star athlete Terry Godwin, who pledged to the Bulldogs earlier this year. From Callaway High School in Hogansville, Godwin is a Georgia native who will be a star in the Peach State for years to come.

    The 6'0", 168-pounder has fantastic athleticism and smooth movement skills. He can excel as a receiver or cornerback, which is why it wouldn't be shocking to see Godwin play both ways in Athens.

    The 5-star prospect is among the nation's best players, and he will certainly help the Bulldogs land more elite talent before the end of this recruiting cycle. 

Ty'Son Williams, RB

2 of 8

    Ty'Son Williams is a 4-star running back from South Carolina who has the ability to make an impact in the SEC. He was a Georgia fan as a kid, according to a report by Chad Simmons of Scout.com

    At 5'11" and 200 pounds, Williams has a good blend of quickness and strength. He doesn't get slowed down by arm tackles in alleys, plus he has enough lateral quickness to weave around traffic.

    Georgia is standing out among several other powerhouses, according to 247Sports.

Natrez Patrick, DE/OLB

3 of 8

    A 4-star edge-defender, Natrez Patrick is a must-get for Georgia. The 6'3", 220-pounder is a versatile defensive prospect who can play with his hand down or standing up.

    Patrick has excellent first-step quickness at the snap, plus he can bend well when coming around the pocket. His athleticism and ability to pressure passers would make him a huge asset for the Bulldogs.

    UGA, Auburn and Alabama are his favorites, according to 247Sports.

Albert Huggins, DL

    Albert Huggins is a 4-star defensive lineman who can play inside or out on the edge. Developing into a gap-penetrating 4-3 defensive tackle is not out of the question for him.

    At 6'3" and 279 pounds, the South Carolina native routinely launches upfield at the snap to engage quickly with blockers. He shows solid strength and toughness at the point of attack, plus Huggins accelerates well to get to ball-carriers in pursuit.

    Georgia will have to fight off Clemson and South Carolina for him, says 247Sports

Roquan Smith, LB

5 of 8

    Roquan Smith is a speedy linebacker who could play the "Mike" position in a Tampa-2 scheme. Although he is only 205 pounds, Smith beats offensive linemen by slipping blocks with quickness.

    With his terrific athleticism and ability to attack in a hurry after reading his keys, Smith can also play on the flanks. The 4-star Georgia native is 6'2", and he has a chance to become a leader of a college defense early in his career.

    Auburn, Georgia and Florida are his top schools, per 247Sports.

Rashad Roundtree, S

    Another Peach State prospect, Rashad Roundtree is one of the top defenders in the South. He's a 4-star safety who can make his presence felt in many different ways.

    Roundtree, who is 6'1" and 195 pounds, has the athleticism to hold his own in coverage. He'll battle a tight end through the whistle, plus he'll fight to get his hands on a pass when he can. Yet, Roundtree also has the vision and toughness to roll into the box and tag a running back versus running plays.

    It's Auburn vs. Georgia for him, according to 247Sports.

    Chad Simmons of Scout.com wrote on March 5: "The talented safety has exploded in 2014 and he has become a hot name across the country."

Alvin Kamara, RB

7 of 8

    Formerly at Alabama, Alvin Kamara has left Tuscaloosa. The 4-star running back is now at Hutchinson Community College in Kansas.

    Kamara is a Georgia native who had a chance to sign with the Bulldogs coming out of high school. He has deceptive strength and power in his 5'11", 200-pound frame. Kamara also has good hands and speed, plus he'll help pick up the blitz.

    Georgia would be wise to try to bring Kamara home.

Trent Thompson, DT

8 of 8

    The No. 1 player in the 247Sports composite rankings, 5-star defensive tackle Trent Thompson is Georgia's No. 1 recruiting target.

    The 6'4", 292-pounder is an attack-style defensive lineman who can make a ton of plays in the opposing team's backfield. Thompson has outstanding strength, but it's his explosiveness and quickness that help him do a lot things other defensive tackles simply can not.

    UGA will have to beat out schools such as Florida State, Alabama, Tennessee and Auburn, according to 247Sports.
