Dawgs' OL Recruiting Looking Good

All week Scout.com - South will be updating the rankings for the southern players. The states included are Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Arkansas. This is a look at the Top Offensive Linemen in the South.

Wide Receivers
Running Backs
Tight Ends


Defensive Ends

By far the deepest position in the deep south this year is the offensive line. I keep a mental note of the players I've scouted through the years (4), and who I think is the best at each position. 

Andre Smith would take the #1 spot in any of the past four classes, and the scary part is, Sam Young would get #2.

Georgia is more than holding its own with commitments from some of the best linemen in the south. Georgia is still looking for offensive tackles, and several of the players like Kiante Tripp and Greg Billinger could start out on the defensive side of the ball in Athens.

Here is a look at the South's Deepest Position.

Rather than list the players' height, weight, and speed, I have listed the school they are committed to if any. Click on their player page to see more information including scouting videos and schools of interest.
