Georgia Bulldogs Signing Day 2012 Updates & Comment Thread
Wednesday, February 1 is National Signing Day 2012. The Georgia Bulldogs are expected to sign a Top 10 class and, with a few late surprises, could even move into the Top 5 in some services.
Mark Richt and the Georgia Bulldogs already have 17 verbal commitments and ESPN has the Dawgs currently ranked 5th overall.
The Dawgs are hoping to land a few of their big-time uncommitted targets: Josh Harvey-Clemons, Josh Dawson,
Avery Young and Cordarelle Patterson.
Quarterback Faton Bauta, offensive lineman Mark Beard and running back Keith Marshall have already enrolled at Georgia. Two of their scholarships will count towards the numbers for the 2011 class.
As we do each year, Sicemdawgs.com will post the 2012 Georgia Bulldog signees as they come in. We will also update this post throughout the day (see “Live Signing Day Updates” below). Feel free to join the signing day discussion in the comments section.
