UGA confirms that 13 football recruits have enrolled early
UGA officials confirmed on Friday that 13 of its recruits have enrolled early in college.
The Bulldogs, which have 30 commitments for 2013, originally had 17 recruits that intended to start class on Monday for the spring semester. However, only 13 were cleared through admissions. The others will have to wait until May.
UGA needed to hit the magic number of 10 early enrollees circumvent the SEC’s new over-signing rules on a 25-man annual limit on class size. Under the rules, 10 of this year’s recruits will be “back-counted” toward the 2012 scholarship numbers, permitting the Bulldogs to sign 25 in February.
With 13 total enrolling early, 10 of those will count toward last year, and the other three will go toward this year’s numbers.
The last admittance of the group was John Atkins, a defensive tackle from Virginia’s Hargrave prep school.
On Thursday, Atkins told the AJC that he was approved by the NCAA Clearinghouse after his coach discovered that one of his grades had been incorrectly reported.
