2010 Recruiting class
Well, it depends on which source you look to for your college football news, each has a different ranking for the Dawgs recruiting class. ESPN has them ranked 9th, Rivials.com has them ranked 16th and Scout.com has them ranked 21st. The rankings don’t really concern me since having a better ranking recruiting class doesn’t necessarily mean you are going to have a good year on the field. Even though there are some guys who signed yesterday that will make an immediate impact on their team, most will take a year or two to develop. All I am concerned about is did we get solid players who are willing to come in and work hard to learn the system and have potential to be good/great college players. We needed to fill some holes that we currently have or will have in a year or two on the defensive side of the ball. That was defiantly accomplished yesterday! Coach Richt and the new DC, Coach Grantham did a great job at getting some stud defensive ends and linemen. Sure I would have loved to sign Da’Rick Rogers and Nickell Robey, but I feel like we got a great group of receivers and defensive backs in Athens right now. Even thought we didn’t sign a ton of guys (only 19) we signed talented and quality guys. Overall I give the 2010 recruiting class a B+. I applaud the depleted coaching staff for keeping this class together in times of duress!
I can’t wait until September 4th when toe meets leather once again!
