Georgia coach Mark Richt is happy with 2014 recruiting class so far


The Georgia Bulldogs are going to go into a huge transition in 2014. Not only will it be their first year without star QB Aaron Murray, but they’re also going to have to reload at some other positions as well.

Not just for next year, but for a few years from now, that all starts with recruiting, and Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt is pleased so far with his upcoming class for 2014.

According to 247 Sports, Georgia has the ninth-ranked overall class for 2014 in the composite rankings, including 11 four-star athletes.

So, yeah, Richt has every reason to feel good about what they’re building down in Athens:

“I feel good about this year’s class; I can say I feel very good,” Georgia coach Mark Richt told the AJC. “I really believe in how we evaluate and how we trust what we think is right for us. And we evaluate more than talent. We evaluate a lot of things, and that helps us bring in the right guys.”

Georgia has 16 verbal commitments already and may sign anywhere between 20-22 prospects as they continue to fight for their next SEC Championship.
