I was tempted to put four-star DE Sterling Bailey on here since I think Georgia's defense faces as much of a learning curve as its offense.
But consider what Georgia's situation would have resembled had four-star QB Christian LeMay not signed on to the 2011 class.
The Bulldogs nearly watched as not one, but two QBs, Zach Mettenberger and Logan Gray, left school this spring. As backups to redshirt freshman and untested starter Aaron Murray, their departures would have left the esteemed program an injury away from dipping into the walk-on well.
Gray eventually reconsidered once he received reassurance that the starting job was still (kinda sorta) up for grabs, but I'd thank LeMay for truly quieting the calm.
The technically sound and extremely heady QB, No. 3 overall in the class, "committed" to the program in his home church in Matthews, North Carolina, over a host of offers from all over the country. Texas A&M, Clemson, Notre Dame and Auburn joined Georgia as the final five left standing, and that was only after Florida bowed out.
LeMay will provide immediate depth and an unbroken chain of command to the Dawgs upon his arrival, and will even enroll early in spite of a confusing 30-day suspension from his high school. Should the Bulldogs struggle to adjust to a new defensive coordinator, a new QB and the same old slings and arrows of the SEC, he might get there not a moment too soon.
