Five Dawgs in Top 100

ATHENS – Georgia's recruiting class will have five players in the top 100 this year. 300, which has the Bulldogs ranked #10 in its current national rankings, has five players ranked in the top 100.

The Bulldogs' top commit is Calhoun wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers, who is ranked as the #13 overall prospect in the country and the #4 overall receiver in the country.

"Georgia landed five guys in the top 100 led by Da'Rick Rogers," South Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons said. "Rogers is a game-breaker at wide receiver, and he has tools that not many possess in the country right now. He still has to improve his consistency more than anything, but he will make plays that look unreal at times. He just has that are combination of size, speed, and athleticism you see at wide receiver."

The #22 overall prospect in the country, Newnan's Alec Ogletree, is considered the country's #3 outside linebacker.

"Ogletree is still a five-star also, but at a new position," Simmons said. "He is now listed as an outside linebacker instead of safety for many different reasons. He struggled a good bit down in Orlando during the Under Armour All-America practices and he is just looks more comfortable against the run. His drops into coverage need to be improved and while he still could end up at strong safety for UGA, he is 6-foot-3, 215 pound frame combined with his biggest strengths on the field have him slated at linebacker on Scout."

Those are the top two talents committed to Georgia, but three others are also in the top 100 players in the nation according to

"Garrison Smith, Brent Benedict and T.J. Stripling round out the Georgia commitments in the top 100 and each belongs there," Simmons said. "Smith is going to fit in very nicely at defensive end in Todd Grantham's 3-4 scheme at Georgia is his upside as very high. Benedict went down with an injury and missed the second half of the season, but he is a very physical lineman with brute strength. Stripling is one of the top rush ends in the country. He needs to add weight and become more physical but his speed and pursuit to the ball are outstanding."

Kolton Houston, Jalen Fields, Nickell Robey, Demetre Baker and Ken Malcome are all also ranked in' Top 300.

The Bulldogs are ranked in's top ten in national rankings, but trail SEC foes Florida (#1), Alabama (#4), Auburn (#5) and LSU (#7).
