Dawgs still 3rd in Scout.com Rankings

ATHENS – Georgia remains third in Scout.com's national recruiting rankings after the US Army All-American Bowl, but national power Notre Dame is right on the Bulldogs' trail in fourth.

Georgia, which was ranked second behind Texas for most of the fall, is still behind the newly crowned national champs, who are in third, as well as surging Florida – the number one team in the rankings.

The Gators have built momentum of late in recruiting battles. Brandon Spikes and Marcus Gilbert committed to Florida in the last week. And the Gators had a big December that saw them grab seven commitments, two of whom are rated as five-star players. Florida holds a 106-poinr advantage in the rankings over Texas and a 331-point edge over Georgia.

Georgia holds a 124-point advantage over Notre Dame even though the Irish have four more players committed to their program. Notre Dame will try to end their recruiting by signing Mitch Mustain, a former Arkansas commit who has opened his recruiting back up, and Sam Young, an offensive lineman from Florida.

The Bulldogs are still eager to get commitments from a running back, specifically Knowshon Moreno, a 4-star prospect from New Jersey, and a defensive tackle – Charles Deas, from Florida. Georgia could vault themselves near the top of the rankings if they can pull one of two Alabama natives, Deantwan Whitehead of Birmingham or Tim Hawthorne of Homewood, from their home state.
