Dawgs remain 3rd in Recruiting Rankings

ATHENS – Georgia remains third in Scout.com's national recruiting rankings two weeks into January and two and a half weeks before National Signing Day.

Unlike many programs, the Bulldogs did not have a huge weekend for visiting recruits. The Dawgs reportedly only hosted two players: wide receiver Brent Brewer and defensive tackle Geno Atkins – both have offers from the Bulldogs.

Texas, meanwhile, jumped over Florida for the number one spot in the national rankings. The Longhorns lead the Gators by only eight points 2,549 to 2,541. Georgia has 2,326 total points. Should Florida get a commitment from any recruit visiting them this weekend – including highly-rated prospects C.J. Spiller, Ian Symonette, Antonio Logan-El and former Georgia linebacker Josh Johnson – they will take the number one spot back from Texas.

Georgia still holds a 125-point advantage over Notre Dame. The Irish are hosting one player - Sam Young, an offensive lineman from Florida – but he will not announce his college choice until this Thursday. Young will choose between Notre Dame Southern Cal.

Notre Dame is still recruiting former Arkansas commit Mitch Mustain, who has opened his recruiting back up. Mustain is reportedly interested in Arkansas, Notre Dame, Alabama and Tennessee.

Georgia is still eager to get a commitment from a running back – specifically Knowshon Moreno, a 4-star prospect from New Jersey, or Los Angeles running back Stafon Johnson. Moreno did not take a visit this weekend, while Johnson visited Washington, and will visit Athens next weekend.

The Dawgs are also still interested in signing another defensive tackle. Charles Deas, from Florida, is visiting Auburn this weekend and LSU next. He will visit Georgia the weekend before National Signing Day.

Georgia could vault themselves to near the top of the rankings if they can sign one of those three players. They might jump into the top spot with those signing and if Alabama native Tim Hawthorne of Homewood, abandon their home state and pick the Dawgs, too.
