Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post St. Johns river, Florida recruits continue to flow north

Friday June 26, 2009

Georgia picked up their tenth commitment of the 2010 class on Thursday, and it’s the Bulldogs’ sixth pledge so far from the state of Florida.

Linebacker Deon Rogers of Treasure Coast High in Port St. Lucie, Fla. committed after attending Georgia’s camp two weeks ago and receiving an offer. Rogers’ offer sheet at the moment isn’t overwhelming – it includes Buffalo, Florida International, South Alabama, and Duke – but Georgia’s offer came only after the coaches were able to see Rogers at camp competing against some of the most talented prospects in the southeast.

Rogers’ position is a little up in the air. Two weeks ago, he told Rivals.com that Georgia was recruiting him as a weakside defensive end. The Rivals.com article on his commitment though has him at linebacker. At right around 200 lb., he’d have to really fill out to play defensive end, but he has the 6’3″ frame to do so. Do the Dawgs see another Marcus Howard in him? Last year Rogers recorded 14 tackles for loss and 12 sacks, so he does know how to get into the backfield.

It has to be noted that Rogers’ teammate is Jeff Luc, the nation’s top-rated inside linebacker prospect. The two are by no means a package deal, but Luc is also considering Georgia.
