Georgia Bulldogs: ahmad fulwood

Now that the pens have been put to paper, the classes have been announced and most of your attention has turned to the 2014 recruiting season, it's time to take a look at how each school in the SEC did when it came to immediately filling needs.

We're checking out what all 14 teams did to fill holes, and we're looking at which holes still remain. We'll start with the SEC East:

FLORIDA

Needs filled: LB, OL, DB, WR, DT -- The Gators had one of the most complete classes out there, finishing second in the ESPN class rankings. Florida landed the top cornerback prospect (No. 3 nationally) in Vernon Hargreaves III, defensive tackles Caleb Brantley and Jay-nard Bostwick, linebackers Daniel McMillian and Matt Rolin, and safeties Keanu Neal and Marcell Harris. The Gators also added five wide receivers, including ESPN 150 members Demarcus Robinson and Ahmad Fulwood.

Holes remaining: DE -- Will Muschamp seemed thrilled with his class, but he probably would have liked to get a least one more defensive end. The Gators missed on a few, including Tashawn Bower, who almost picked the Gators before signing with LSU. Four-stars Jordan Sherit and Antonio Riles were the only defensive ends in this class.

GEORGIA

Needs filled: ILB, S -- The Bulldogs had to replace a few bodies at middle linebacker, and did so by signing four. The star of the group is four-star ESPN 300 member Johnny O'Neal, who is the No. 5 inside linebacker in the county. Tim Kimbrough and Ryne Rankin, both ESPN 300 members, also signed with the Dawgs. Georgia also signed five safeties, including two junior college standouts. The top safety in this class is ESPN 150 member Tray Matthews.

Holes remaining: Elite OT, elite RB, elite DT -- Mark Richt was pleased with his 32-man signing class, but he knows it could have been better if a few elite players had signed with Georgia. The Dawgs barely missed on top offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil (Ole Miss), No. 4 running back Alvin Kamara (Alabama) and No. 2 defensive tackle Montravius Adams (Auburn).

ESPN 300 cornerback Reggie Wilkerson (Citra, Fla./North Marion) admits there was a little back-and-forth chatter between he and Gator commits Nick Washington (Jacksonville, Fla./Trinity Christian) and Ahmad Fulwood (Jacksonville, Fla./Bishop Kenny) during the flight to The Opening in Oregon.

"I sat next to Tramel Terry and we sat in front of Nick Washington and Ahmad Fulwood," Wilkerson said. "You know there was plenty of talk going on. Those guys love to get things started."

The Opening is the start of a busy month for Wilkerson. He will be visiting Athens for Dawg Night and staying through the weekend. He is also scheduled to participate in Gridiron Kings at the end of the month.

National All-Nike Camp team: Thousands of top athletes participated in this year’s Nike Football Training Camps, but it was Auburn, Ala., linebacker and Alabama commit Reuben Foster, the No. 2 recruit in the ESPN 150, who stood above them all.
Ahmad Fulwood (Jacksonville, Fla./Bishop Kenny) has decided to push off his college decision until at least the summer -- and possibly into the fall -- as he weighs numerous options.

The ESPNU 150 Watch List receiver on Saturday told ESPN GatorNation that he wants to focus on schoolwork before devoting his attention to the recruiting scene.

"I'm just putting everything on pause right now," said Fulwood, who was playing at the IMG Madden 7-on-7 Southeast Regional qualifying event. "I still have a quarter of school left. I'm just zoning everything out and getting everything finished up with school. By the time spring football comes around and the coaches come around, I'll start speeding it up and talking more with the coaches."

Fulwood recently visited Florida and also likes Clemson, Georgia, Alabama, Ohio State and USC. He said he has not determined a pecking order among those favorites.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Five-star wide receiver prospect Ahmad Fulwood (Jacksonville, Fla./Bishop Kenny) will be one of the most highly recruited prospects in the state of Florida for the 2013 class, but he is likely headed out of state to play college football.

Fulwood lists Clemson, Alabama, USC, Arkansas, Georgia, Ohio State and Notre Dame as schools that he is most interested. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound receiver said that out of those schools, he likely will visit Georgia, Clemson, Ohio State and possibly USC this spring.

Noticeably missing are in-state schools Florida, Florida State and Miami. Fulwood said he is likely to leave the state to attend college. Fulwood, who is from New Jersey, said there is no particular reason he wants to leave the state.

On the weekend before signing day, Trinity Christian (Jacksonville) Watch List wide receiver Ahmad Fulwood took a trip to Clemson for its junior day.

It was the second trip to Clemson for the 6-foot-3, 190-pound junior, and he wanted to check out some of the other parts of the campus.

"I really focused on a lot of non-football things for this trip," Fulwood said. "I wanted to look around the campus and the neighborhood.
