Get off our lawn.
Big commitment today for the Dawgs as Sterling Bailey (6’4″ 235lb. DE out of East Hall), one of the state’s top defensive prospects made his decision to wear Red and Black public.
Bailey’s top 5 was Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Notre Dame and Tennessee. I think that if you’re a Georgia fan, that should give you a significant dose of optimism for the 2011 class, considering the somewhat unimpressive class of 2010, and the growing concern that Alabama and Florida were out-recruiting us in our own state.
As Mark Weiszer notes, Bailey seems to have been impressed with Todd Grantham and how he recruited him. Specifically, that the Dallas Cowboys coach was in his living room 3 days after stepping off the plane in Athens.
Let’s hope this trend with the in-state talent continues for the 2011 class… and in case you haven’t been reading it, Leather Helmet Blog always has regular recruiting updates worth checking out.
