I’ll start off with this caveat. While recruiting is the life blood of college football programs, you always have to take a wait and see approach. I have written about it many times before, so I will spare you the agony of me spewing my recruiting spill one more time.
By all counts, Georgia has a top class; maybe not stellar, but one that any university that is not Alabama, FSU, Texas, or Florida would appreciate.
At last check, Georgia’s class was ranked No. 5 by ESPN, No. 6 by 247Sports, No. 12 by Scout, No. 19 by Rivals and No. 20 by Tom Lemming. Take it for what it’s worth.
Exactly. Take it for what it is worth, but the 2012 class is a nice building block, and momentum springboard.
Even if it did lose to the four best teams it played last season. Even if it did blow its bowl game. Even if it didn’t get every single recruit it wanted. Quibble all you want, but Georgia in 2012 resembles the Georgia of 2002. And the very nice haul of this signing day, even if it wasn’t quite so dazzling as last year’s Dream Team, showed a program primed to move from strength to strength.
Hopefully these guys will contribute right away, adding depth, and in some cases competing for playing time.
