Dawg Night: Fab Five Performers

ATHENS - The Fab Five -- The top five performers from Dawg Night.

(in alphabetical order)

Dashawn Benton - Grady, WR, 6-0, 175, Sr.

A bit of an unknown coming into the evening, Benton made his mark in a big way. Although he looks slender, Benton carried himself like the prototypical slot receiver.

He's quick off the line and was able to get behind linebackers to make possession-style catches.

Benton may be a fresh name to some, but look for him to build on the momentum he created at Dawg Night.

Paris Bostick, Plant (Fla), DB, Sr., 6-0, 205

Bostick helped his stock at the defensive back position in the 2013 class -- he's now an emerging star for Plant High.

Bostick is athletic defensive back who impressed both with his coverage skills and also as a wide receiver. As a defender he made things tough for receivers all night and also had a couple interceptions.

He projects as a safety at the next level and has plenty of room to bulk up on an already impressive frame.

Rico Johnson - Swainsboro, WR, 5-11, 175, Sr.

Johnson could play either corner or receiver at the next level, but spent nearly all of his time at wideout Friday.

He was essentially unstoppable, showing great speed to get separation and catching every ball that hit his hands. Just like he did last month at the Mark Richt Camp, Johnson ran an incredibly fast 40 time.

At this stage, Johnson may be too explosive and too much of a playmaker to not play offense.

Jeremy Kerr - St. Petersburg (Fla.), TE, Sr., 6-6, 254

Kerr is committed to Miami -- but he still took the time to travel to Athens for Dawg Night. Kerr was the best player at his position -- and it just so happens Georgia needs at least two players at tight end in this class.

If Kerr does waver on his pledge to the Hurricanes, he showed Georgia that he's a player worth being pursued with his play Friday.

He's a big-bodied tight end -- think Arthur Lynch. But he also showed he could catch the football some, too.

Just based on Kerr's body, it looks like he could grow into an offensive lineman by the time he reaches college.

Brice Ramsey - Camden County, QB, 6-3, 200, Sr.

Ramsey was performing in his fourth Dawg Night, and he could have spent the evening with most of the other Georgia commits on the sideline.

Instead, he was throwing like all the rest of the quarterbacks. Except, he wasn't throwing like all the rest -- he was the best.

Ramsey's maturity as a player continues to grow. He spins the ball at an elite level -- there's not a throw he can't make.

But we already knew that. During Dawg Night Ramsey furthered the point that he's a leader. He talked with commits and others alike and was encouraging throughout the night.
