2011 Georgia Top 50

The Scout150 is out and it will expand to 300 in about a month and many of those will be from the state of Georgia. Here is an early look at the top 50 right here.

As always, Georgia is loaded with talent. It has a good mix of skill guys and linemen in 2011 with a real battle going on for that top spot between a tight end and a running back.

This is a very early Top 50 in Georgia and many prospects not on this list yet are still waiting to be evaluated on film, camps, combines, and spring practices in the coming months.

Some names you know, some may surprise you, but this list will continue to change throughout Signing Day 2010 and we will expand the top 50 in Georgia to 100 early in the summer.

Here is the early top 50.
