UGA staff looking deep at DB

ATHENS, Ga. -- At the moment, the University of Georgia has 10 spots available for the 2012 class. With less than four months until signing day, DawgNation takes a look at 10 prospects who might be on the cusp of getting offers, this time with five on the defensive side of the ball.

Justin Thomason (McDonough, Ga./Eagles Landing Christian Academy) really saw his stock rise after more than holding his own against ESPNU 150 offensive tackle and UGA commit John Theus. The 6-foot-3, 235-pound Thomason, a defensive end/linebacker, has worked during his senior season on staying low, learning to use his hands more, and it looks like his decision to delay his commitment was a wise one, as more offers are coming in every day. Syracuse and NC State offered last week, putting Thomason at more than 20 to date. North Carolina and Vanderbilt have been mentioned as possibilities for official visits.

Thomason was in Athens to see the Bulldogs take on South Carolina, and he was impressed.
