Dawgs Get High Marks on 2010 Class

This is probably a fun but otherwise meaningless bit of good news for Dawgs fans today.

ESPN's initial recruiting rankings for the class of 2010 were just posted, and Georgia comes in at No. 3.

Of course, there's always the other side of things, too: Florida is at No. 1.

Here's what they have to say about the Bulldogs' class so far:

In 2009, the Bulldogs bolstered their offensive line by signing the No. 5 overall OT (Austin Long) and the No. 2 overall OG (Chris Burnette). However, you can never have enough big boys up front, so Mark Richt added Brent Benedict (Jacksonville, Fla./Bolles) and Kolton Houston (Buford, Ga./Buford). Benedict, who is this year's No. 5 offensive tackle in the country, comes out of his stance with good pad level and gets into the defender immediately. He is good with his hands, fights to sustain blocks and works to keep proper leverage. Houston, who is the No. 3 guard in the country, has great athleticism, footwork and quickness. He displays great quickness and explosion out of his stance as a run-blocker; can get movement versus down linemen and has the athletic skills to block second level defenders.

The recruits are good to hear about. But I have heared the same thing since Donnan was coaching and I have yet to see these recruits put us in the running to compete for the national title like FL has, much less beat FL year after year like they have beaten us.

It seems to me like we have the keys to a Mercedes every year but have yet to crank it up.
