• 1. OL Laremy Tunsil (Columbia; Lake City, Fla) - Tunsil has two teams on top in Georgia and Alabama, and he is undoubtedly the top player left on Georgia's board. Should he sign with the Bulldogs, he will be given a chance to come in and earn the starting left tackle spot, and those close to him say that is very appealing. A good friend of his and former teammate Derrick Henry is now committed to Alabama and says that Tunsil will likely follow him, but sources close to his recruitment say that isn't really the case. Alabama is definitely in the thick of it here but those closest to Tunsil still say Georgia is the team to beat. His recruitment will go down to signing day with the biggest remaining factor being his official visits.
• 2. DL Montravius Adams (Dooly HS) - At one point, it looked like Clemson and Auburn had opened up a huge lead over the other teams for Adams, but that is no longer the case. If he has a leader, it would probably be Clemson but by the narrowest of margins at this point. We see it as a four-team race between Auburn, Clemson, Florida, and Georgia right now with Alabama having a chance as well. Georgia has yet to really spend a great deal of time pitching Adams on playing time and NFL potential according to those close to him, but they have worked hard on building a relationship with him. He says that he will now decide sometime before signing day, and will be in Athens on November 3, with his mother, when Georgia takes on Ole Miss.
• 3. DL Toby Johnson (Hutchinson Community College; Hutchinson, Kan.) - Johnson is having an excellent second year at Hutchinson, and there are a number of teams that are looking to get in on the four star JUCO. According to those close to Johnson, Georgia is the team to beat as he wants to get back to the Peach State and closer to family. Tennessee is confident because of their history of pulling big time prospects out of Hutchinson, and they will be in it until the end. Oklahoma and Florida are two other teams to keep an eye on for Johnson. He plans to take his official visit to UGA sometime in December and told UGASports via text on Sunday that he is hoping to make it to campus when the Bulldogs take on Georgia Tech in November.
• 4. RB Alvin Kamara (Norcross High) - Few players have handled the recruiting process as maturely as Kamara, and none have done a better job of not tipping their hand. Kamara has said that Georgia and Alabama are on top, but those close to him believe he is a strong Georgia lean. Alabama currently has three running backs committed while Georgia has none, and the Bulldogs have made the four star playmaker their top priority at the position. Kamara continues to grow and get stronger, and there is a very good chance he develops into an every down back at the next level. He is SEC ready in his lower half right now, and will be a big time pick up for whatever teams he chooses. Kamara will take five official visits and says he will decide after that.
• 5. Jonathan Rumph (Holmes Community College; Goodman, Miss.) - Right now, it appears that Rumph is Georgia's top remaining target at wide receiver in this class. At one point, it looked like Georgia had the lead for Rumph, but now it is in what appears to be a three-team race with Mississippi State and Tennessee. Rumph will officially visit Georgia according to those close to him, but it is unclear as to when that visit will occur. The Bulldogs will need to roll out the red carpet for him in order to gain the edge.
• 6. OL Tyrone Crowder (Richmond County; Rockingham, N.C.) - Crowder could easily be as high as number two on this list. The four-star offensive lineman has yet to speak to UGASports, but according to those close to him, Georgia is in the thick of it. Crowder has built a good relationship with the Georgia staff, and those close to him say he will likely take an official visit to Georgia after the season. Clemson probably has the edge, but a great visit could change all of that.
• 7. DB Brendan Langley (Kell) - Georgia isn't going to give up on the South Carolina commit until he signs on the dotted line, and he has left the door open for the Bulldogs to make a run at him. Georgia looked to be gaining momentum in September when he learned that head basketball coach Mark Fox wanted him to come play basketball. Since that time, Langley has been told he can do the same at South Carolina and witnessed the Gamecocks take it to the Bulldogs in Columbia last month as well. Georgia doesn't have a great shot here, but they are still hoping to get Langley on campus for an official visit.
