Post All-star games send recruiting into high gear

Friday January 2, 2009

With the season now behind us, we’ve entered the recruiting home stretch. There’s little more than a month left until Signing Day on February 4th. While Georgia already has much of a solid class committed, there are still a few undecided prospects who could really put Georgia over the top in terms of the best recruiting classes in the nation.

This weekend is significant because of the national All-Star games. You have the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio on the 3rd (Noon, NBC) and the Under Armour All-America game in Orlando on the 4th (8 p.m., ESPN). Each game is sponsored in part by by rival recruiting services, so both games will showcase different top prospects.

U.S. Army A-A Bowl

  • OL Chris Burnette
  • OL Austin Long (injured)
  • QB Aaron Murray

Under Armour A-A Game

  • RB Washaun Ealey
  • DL Abry Jones
  • OL Dallas Lee
  • LB Dexter Moody

Several other in-state commitments played in the Georgia North-South All Star Game on Tuesday.

In addition to those committed players, there are also several top uncommitted prospects in action. Receiver Marlon Brown (Under Armour), TE Orson Charles (U.S. Army), LB Jarvis Jones (U.S. Army), and DB Branden Smith (Under Armour) will be on display. Smith is expected to announce his college decision during the game, and Georgia is considered the favorite.
