Georgia's Signing Day will get off to a fast and furious start on Wednesday. Five of the six prospects with the Bulldogs on their mind are set to make the selections before noon.

Three of the six players are committed to other schools, complicating matters and perhaps lowering Georgia's chances on those particular players.

Auburn commit Jaquay Williams, a receiver from Sandy Creek; Alabama commit Brandon Greene, an offensive lineman from Cedar Grove; and Vanderbilt commit Josh Dawson, a linebacker from Tucker could all make Signing Day switches to the Bulldogs.

Junior college receiver Cordarrelle Patterson is down Ole Miss, Georgia and Tennessee, but it has been hard to gauge just where he's headed. Offensive lineman Avery Young has also been hard to read, and he will be the last to decide at 2 PM EST.

The morning will start with Josh Harvey-Clemons picking between Florida, Georgia, Florida State and Miami on cable television Wednesday morning.
