Close to 200 prospects in Georgia sign with FBS programs each year, with the Peach State leading the country in SEC signees each of the last three years as well. Averaging more than 30 offers to in-state prospects through the last five years (153 overall), the Georgia Bulldogs have made closing the borders a priority, and with 2013 being one of the deeper classes in terms of top talent, next year will be no different for the Bulldogs.
The weeklong Rising Seniors program culminates with the Georgia Junior Bowl at 7 p.m. ET Friday at Grady Stadium in Atlanta. The game will be streamed live on ESPN3 and will showcase dozens of FBS-caliber Georgia state prospects for the 2013 class. DawgNation takes a look at the wide receivers and tight ends set to participate in the game:
