Looking at ESPN's recruiting rankings for the state of Georgia, it is clear that SEC and ACC programs value the elite talent in the Peach State, with 17 of the top 30 prospects committed to out-of-state programs in both conferences. For the Georgia Bulldogs, that in no way indicates a subpar class is in the cards, but it does mean the margin for error is small in maintaining the annual flow of vital in-state talent to Athens.
Here, DawgNation takes a look at the targets the Bulldogs hope to sign from Georgia for the 2012 class:
• Lowndes standout Josh Harvey-Clemons, the top prospect in Georgia, is a 6-foot-5, 210-pound athlete who lines up at quarterback, wide receiver, linebacker and safety for head coach Randy McPherson. On defense, Harvey-Clemons occasionally lines up man-to-man with the slot receiver. The University of Georgia is recruiting him to play outside linebacker in defensive coordinator Todd Grantham's 3-4 scheme.
