Despite recruiting losses, Georgia loaded at WR in 2010

So we lost a highly touted WR recruit. Now who will catch the balls between the hedges?

1. AJ Green (Jr). Career stats: 109 receptions, 1,771 yards, 14 TD. Out of high school, he was a 5 star Rivals recruit and the #2 WR by ESPN.

2. Tavarres King (R. Soph). Career stats: 20 receptions, 443 yards, 1 TD. Out of high school, he was a 4 star Rivals recruit and the #22 WR by ESPN.

3. Rantavious Wooten (Soph). Career stats: 10 receptions, 197 yards, 2 TD. Out of high school, he was a 4 star Rivals recruit.

4. Israel Troupe (Jr.). Career stats: 8 receptions, 129 yards, 1 TD. Out of high school, he was a 4 star Rivals recruit and the #6 WR by ESPN.

5. Kris Durham (Sr.). Career stats: 32 receptions, 450 yards, 1 TD. Out of high school, he was a 3 star Rivals recruit.

6. Marlon Brown (Soph). Career stats: 2 receptions, 15 yards. Out of high school, he was a 4 star Rivals recruit and #3 WR by ESPN.

Then we have 2 potential WR's signed today.

Michael Bennet, a 3 star WR (and also 6'3").

Derek Owens, a 3 star athlete who can play cornerback or wide receiver.

And then we have our tight ends (all potentially threats as pass-catching TE's).

1. Orson Charles (Soph.). Career stats: 23 receptions, 374 yards, 3 TD. Out of high school, he was a 4 star Rivals recruit, and the #15 TE by ESPN.

2. Aron White (Jr.). Career stats: 16 receptions, 286 yards, 6 TD. Out of high school, he was a 4 star Rivals recruit and the #6 TE by ESPN.

3. Bruce Figgins (Jr). Career stats: 5 receptions, 56 yards, 1 TD. Out of high school, he was a 3 star Rivals recruit and the #27 TE by ESPN.

We've got all of that, not to mention any walk-ons at WR who are available (and maybe even former-QB and punt fair catcher Logan Gray). Sure, it would be great to add another 4 or 5 star WR to our roster, but I still think this is one of the best receiving groups we've had at Georgia in a long time.

  1. now this is hearsay but i heard from a very reliable source that know both da'rick and nash that the only reason da'rick rogers signed with tennessee is because mike nance (nash nance's father) offered to buy da'rick a new car if he follwed his son nash to tennessee. now i don't know if this is a recruiting violation or what? but didnt joe mcnight just get in trouble for driving a boosters range rover

    all and all i'm pleased with the incoming class! we definitely got strong on the D-line and at safety. my concerns are at LB and CB on the D side of the ball and I feel like we got some nice O-line help. the new WR's have good size and we did get some help at LB and CB. i hear the new RB's a stud and we have a lot of very good young returning talent on both sides of the ball! i'm very excited to see the product of their hard work on the field come this fall and feel that with everyone coming back the Dawgs should be favored in the East this year. we probably would be if the QB position had any experience at all. it's probably a good thing not to be though. now that this day has come and gone we can focus on the hardwood and diamond! Let's Get It On! GO DAWGS!
