Georgia's short recruiting wish list

ATHENS – Dean Legge reviews the potential recruits Georgia could finish their 2007 signing class with.

1. Eric Berry

If there is a better athlete in Georgia I have not seen or heard of him this season. While Berry plays quarterback for Creekside he would not play that at Georgia - most think he would be a cornerback. The Vols reportedly got another visit from Berry this weekend, so it seems they are still the team to beat. The longer Berry goes, however, without committing to Tennessee means the the door open is left open that much longer for Georgia and Ohio State to try to get him.

Team to beat: Tennessee

2. Allen Bailey

Big, strong and headed to San Antonio for the All-American Bowl, Bailey is one of the two guys Georgia coaches are talking about when they say they still want more commitments on the defensive line. The problem is that Bailey may want to play linebacker, which he seems quite big for. Still, convincing Bailey to come to Georgia seems within reach for the Dawgs.

Team to beat: Georgia

3. Morgan Burnett

Fast and quick, Burnett was forced to play quarterback, running back, wide receiver and safety for North Clayton. He's got what it takes to be a corner in the SEC, but I think him playing safety is a bit of a stretch. Georgia Tech is supposedly in the mix with Burnett, but I don't think that will last.

Team to beat: Georgia

4. Major Wright

With good size to transition into becoming a college safety, Wright is one of the few out-of-state players Georgia hopes finish with. He'll play in the All-American Bowl in January, but says he will hold off on deciding where to sign until as late as Signing Day itself. Georgia needs to bring out the big guns to sign him – getting Wright would be a surprise.

Teams to beat: Florida and Ohio State

5. Cameron Heyward

Big and pretty quick, Heyward seems poised to be one of the better defensive tackles coming out of the state in some time. He's not challenged at the high school level, and his team is still playing in the Georgia state playoffs. The Bulldogs will have to fight off LSU to sign him, but that seems likely right now.

Team to beat: Georgia

6. Charles Wood

Gainesville offensive lineman Charles Wood seems to be taking it easy right now with recruiting. He's going to pick between Auburn and Georgia, and it's hard to know right now which one it will be.
