UGA’s Big Board
We’re two months away from signing day, and UGA has most of its work completed for the 2013 recruiting class.
The Bulldogs have 30 commitments, and project to sign between 33-35 in February.
Despite the SEC’s new rules on oversigning and a 25-man limit per class, UGA can sign as many 36 — as long as at least 11 enroll early. They will be “back-counted” toward the UGA’s 2012 class, which finished with a tiny group of only 14 signees (19 initially, but two did not qualify and three others enrolled early and counted toward 2011).
Here’s what UGA’s big board may look like (* denotes early enrollee):
