2013 offensive targets



Looking at 2013

Offense

Quarterback

Camden County quarterback Brice Ramsey committed to Georgia back on Dawg Night, and has built a strong relationship with other UGA targets in the 2013 class. Ramsey is a player with tremendous potential, but he hasn't had much of a chance to show it do to Camden's Wing-T offense. This fall could be a break out season for him, but few doubt he has the tools to be a big time SEC signal caller. There has been rumor about him being upset that Georgia brought in Faton Bauta in the 2011 class, but the UGA staff seems to have smoothed that over for the time being. Alabama and Florida will continue to recruit the South Georgia prospect, and if he should flip, Georgia would turn its attention to Cedar Grove's Jonathan McCrary.

Running Back

Yulee (Fla.) running back Derrick Henry is listed as an athlete, but Georgia coaches have committed to giving him a chance to play running back. Like Ramsey, Henry committed to the Bulldogs on Dawg Night last year, and has been a tireless recruiter. Henry will likely be a top 50 recruit in the country when the rankings come out, and there is little doubt about his commitment to Georgia at this point. At 6-foot-3, 239 pounds, he has the body of a tight end, but he has all of the natural instincts and tools to be a very good running back as well. It appears that the Head Coach Mark Richt and company would like to sign two backs in the 2013 class, and there are several names to watch. Walton's Tyren Jones, Elbert County's Tyshon Dye, Norcross's Alvin Kamara, Eagles Landing's Keyante Green, and American Heritage's (Fla.) Greg Bryant all hold Georgia offers at this time. Jones and Kamara would be perfect compliments to Henry as they are smaller backs with underrated power and great speed. The most complete back of the bunch, however, is Dye. Dye has excellent size at 6-foot, 200 pounds, and has the speed, power, and elusiveness that SEC coaches really want.

Wide Receiver

The state of Georgia is somewhat down this year at the wide receiver position, but that has not stopped the Bulldogs from reaching to bordering states for big time talent. UGA does not have a commitment at the position for 2013 at this time, but they will likely sign two to four targets. Goose Creek (S.C.) pass catcher Tramel Terry is a former UGA commitment, but he withdrew his commitment soon after so that he could look around. Georgia still has a great shot at Terry because they are recruiting him at the position he wants to play. Bishop Kenny wide receiver Ahmad Fullwood is one of the top pass catchers in the country for 2013, and Georgia is rumored to be a big player for his signature. The top target in the Peach State at the wide receiver will be Demarcus Robinson from Peach County. Georgia and Florida are going to be the major players here, and both schools have had success with signing players out of the middle Georgia powerhouse.

Tight End

Georgia wants at least one tight end in the 2012 class, but they have only extended one offer to this point. Cedar Cliff's (Penn.) Adam Breneman received his Georgia offer last week, and it pushed is offer total to well over two dozen. There will be a ton of competition for the star tight end, but Georgia's tradition is likely to have at least some appeal. Other names a sure to emerge during the spring evaluation period.

Offensive Line

The Peach State is loaded with offensive lineman in 2013 and Georgia looks to be in good shape with several targets. Carver-Atlanta's Delando Crooks, North Gwinnett's DeVondre Seymour, and Tri-Cities' Shamire Devine are all solid tackle prospects that like Georgia quite a bit. Georgia is also working hard for Laremy Tunsil from Columbia High School in Lake City, Florida. Rivals already ranks Tunsil as a five-star, and Georgia is getting some serious help from Henry, as he and Tunsil are close friends. The only interior lineman Georgia has offered in the 2013 class is Walton center Brandon Kublanow. Kublanow is known for his firey red hair and aggressive play, but he is also known for being one of the strongest players in the state. As a junior, Kublanow is already pushing 450 pound on the bench press, and has told UGASports in December that he has a lot of love for the Bulldogs.
