5 Commits Who Will Play Next Year

The 2015 UGA class is insanely talented, and I think there will be more than five players that get to play a lot early, but here are my top five: Terry Godwin, Van Jefferson, Trenton Thompson, Jonathan Ledbetter, and Natrez Patrick. Godwin and Thompson are locks to play next year. Both of them would be starting on this UGA team right now, and Godwin could start on both offense and defense. I don’t expect Ledbetter or Patrick to start, but they are too talented to keep off the field, and will certainly work their way into the rotation.

Chad Simmons of put out the five players that he thinks will play at UGA right away next year. Story here.


Defensive Needs

Anyone that knows anything about Georgia football knows that defense that has not been their strong suit the last few years, and they haven’t had a decent secondary since Brian Van Gorder was the defensive coordinator. The Bulldogs went out and hired one of the best defensive coordinators in football in Jeremy Pruitt, and all they need now is the talent to fit his schemes. They have a good bit already committed for the class of 2015, but here are a few more they’d love to get and have a really good shot at landing:

Tarvarus McFadden – ☆☆☆☆☆
American Heritage (Fort Lauderdale, FL) CB
Rashad Roundtree – ☆☆☆☆☆
Lakeside (Evans, GA) S
Roquan Smith – ☆☆☆☆
Macon County (Montezuma, GA) OLB
Donte Jackson – ☆☆☆☆
Riverdale (New Orleans, LA) ATH
D’Andre Walker – ☆☆☆☆
Langston Hughes (Fairburn, GA) WDE
Micah Abernathy – ☆☆☆
Greater Atlanta Christian School (Norcross, GA) CB
