A name in that class that sometimes gets overshadowed is Lavarus Dollar out of Dublin High School. He's here to serve notice, however, that he should not be forgotten and three schools have already jumped at the chance to have him join their program next season.
Is there an early leader in Dollars' mind? "Miami is my favorite right now," he says. "They have been sending me a good bit of mail lately. Florida and Georgia are also recruiting me pretty hard."
Why has the Irish standout chosen to include the other four teams on his leader board?
Georgia: "It's really close to home for me and I have family near there. My sister lives close to Athens."
Florida State: "I grew up liking them since a long time ago. I always watched them play."
South Carolina: "They were the first school to really start recruiting me."
Auburn: "My friend Ryan Taylor played for them a couple of years ago and he told me good things about Auburn."
What's most important for Dollar in making his collegiate choice? "I want to see if a place has my major, which is sports medicine. I'm also looking at location and whether or not I can get a little bit of playing time. I would like to play some my first year, but I don't mind redshirting either."
In the end, his recruitment might just come down to which of his favorites is first to offer the central Georgia native.
"If I get an offer from a school in my top five, I will probably go ahead and make a commitment," he says.
With statements like that, he could very well be turning his recruiting marathon into a fast paced sprint.
