So far, the University of Georgia coaching staff has little to complain about in regard to how recruiting has gone in the 2013 cycle. With nine commitments to date, the Bulldogs are ahead of last year’s pace by more than four months, and with six of those commits appearing on the ESPNU 150 Watch List, there is quality as well as quantity on board. But one position that has yet to yield an addition might also be the biggest need for this class: offensive lineman.

One of the Bulldogs' top O-line targets was in town Saturday for his second visit this month, and some players and coaches in Athens hoped he would decide to make March 24 even more special for him than it already is.

“They all told me happy birthday and put a little pressure on me, but not too much,” Josh Cardiello (Buford, Ga./Buford) said. “Shaq Wiggins was telling me to commit on my birthday so that would be my birthday present to myself.”
