Who is No. 1 for Georgia's 2010 recruiting class? It's Dalton DE Jalen Fields, who hinted to the AJC that he intended to commit to the Bulldogs.

Georgia finally got its first commitment for 2010 when Dalton defensive end Jalen Fields committed to the Bulldogs during UGA’s Junior Day on Saturday.

“I told [Mark Richt] and he was hugging me and my family,” Fields told the AJC. “Georgia is the place I want to be. I believe in [Richt] and Georgia. Coach Richt has already done so many great things at Georgia. I’m a hometown guy, so there was no need for me to look around anywhere else. Georgia is where I want to be, and it’s an honor to be the first [commitment] for next year.”

The 6-foot-5, 245-pound Fields picked UGA among seven offers, including Tennessee, Alabama, and FSUHad Fields waited longer, he was expected to double or triple his scholarship offers.

“I like ‘Coach O’ a lot [Tennessee recruiting coordinator Ed Orgeron], but Georgia was my first offer and my first love,” Fields said. “I’m happy with Georgia, my family is happy with Georgia. That’s where I want to be, and I’m finished with my recruiting. I’m glad to get it over with. Georgia is my dream school. Now I can focus on Dalton football and helping us be the best team we can be.”

Fields, who is a junior, had told the AJC on that chances were high that he would give the Bulldogs an early pledge, and Fields delivered on his word on Saturday. “It’s great to be a Georgia Bulldog. It doesn’t get any better than this.”

The first commitment for Georgia Tech’s 2010 recruiting class was Collins Hill tailback Charles Perkins.

On Saturday, UGA also offered Tucker sophomore linebacker James Vaughters. [Click here to go to the story and see video of the sophomore sensation]

daltondawg,

I think YOU can bank on it happening to YOU again next year. But you know what, I don’t want to sound like all you Georgia “Wait till next year” guys. So I will stay in the present…………………45-42! IN YOUR OWN BACK YARD!!!!!!!!!! tore your number one in the nation, junk yard dawg azzzes UP between the hedges, in YOUR own yard, being down by TWO touchdowns at the half, in front of 90 thousand faithful and 50 million television viewers around the world. WITH all those five star recruits that can’t spell Calculus againts all of our two star recruits who PASS it. No, my friend, the tables have been turned. Not only do we own you in the business world, we NOW own your ugly, mangy, flea ridden hairy azzzes BETWEEN THE LINES now TOO. Better get (AND STAY) on the equestrian and gymnastic boards where you can beat us 45-42. “Well it wont happen again, bank on it”. How original. LOL.

I’m a Ramblin’ Wreck from Georgia Tech, and a hell of an Engineer
A Helluva, Helluva, Helluva, Helluva, Helluva Engineer
Like all the jolly good fellows, I drink my whiskey clear.
I’m a Ramblin’ Wreck from Georgia Tech and a hell of an Engineer.

Oh, if I had a daughter, sir, I’d dress her in white and gold,
And put her on the campus To cheer the brave and bold.
But if I had a son, sir, I’ll tell you what he’d do–
He’d yell: ‘TO HELL WITH GEORGIA!’ Like his daddy used to do.

Oh, I wish I had a barrel of rum, and Sugar three thousand pounds
A college bell to put it in, And a clapper to stir it round.
I’d drink to all the good fellows, who come from far and near.
I’m a Ramblin’, Gamblin’, HELL OF AN ENGINEER!

There are more than a few of us who think it’s unusual for Mark Richt to limit his recruiting to black athletes. It’s not as if you can’t win with white players. Utah didn’t a pretty good job against Alabama.
