defense taking shape

Ray Drew announces for Georgia

Earlier this morning, DE/LB hybrid badass Ray Drew out of Thomas County Central High School publicly announced his decision to enroll at our beloved University of Georgia. Drew becomes the highest-rated commitment for Mark Richt and is a huge puzzle piece in his Dream Team concept.

ESPN/Scouts has Drew ranked as the nation’s #2 defensive end and #13 overall with a 5-star rating. Rivals also lists Drew as a 5-star athlete and as the #1 DE and #9 overall prospect in the nation. Quite a nice player to have in Todd Grantham’s system.

Georgia now has 4 of the top 60 prospects according to Rivals, with #23 Isaiah Crowell and #42 Jeoffrey Pagan reportedly leaning towards Athens as well. Another standout player that is crucial for Georgia is Juco NT John Jenkins as he would fill a critical talent void by anchoring the defensive line. Nabbing all three of these guys would vault Georgia into the top 3 as far as the 2011 recruiting class goes.
