UGA is looking for a few good men to finish up its 2013 recruiting class.
The Bulldogs have 30 commitments, and will likely finish up with 33-35 by national signing day on Feb. 6.
Which prospects is UGA targeting to fill out those last remaining spots? Recruiting coordinator Rodney Garner can’t reveal names due to NCAA rules. But he did mention some positions of need to the AJC this week:
“There’s still some defensive line spots that we need to fill because of the attrition that we’re going to experience there,” he said. “There’s probably an offensive tackle there. We definitely need a tackle more than a guard-type body. And another skill guy, the best available athlete we can find.”
Garner feels good so far about this year’s class – which will be Georgia’s largest since signing 31 in 2002.
“We’re excited about this class,” he said. “We knew it was going to be a large class because of some number situations that have arisen. We’re very excited.
“There’s still a couple of guys out there that we’re still targeting, that we’d like to get to close this class out. If we’re able to close on the guys that we have targeted, I feel like we’ll have the opportunity to have an exceptional class, and be able to build a solid foundation going forward.
“That’s the goal always, when you make projections on what you’re going to sign at each position, and what’s your overall class makeup going to look like. Sometimes you hit that number, sometimes you don’t.
“The biggest thing, you just don’t want to have success on signing day. You like to have some continuity and be able to sustain it. Hopefully, we’ll be able to keep these guys, and they’ll be able to develop into the type of players we’re looking for.”
UGA’s top remaining targets likely include 5-star DT Montravius Adams of Dooly County High School, JC DT Toby Johnson, RB Alvin Kamara of Norcross, OT Laremy Tunsil of Lake City, Fla., and LB Reuben Foster, formerly of Troup, among other prospects.
