Throughout this recruiting cycle, RecruitingNation will profile a number of ESPN 300 prospects in the 2015 class, including an inside look at the prospect, his recruitment, a scouting report and what college program could benefit when he ultimately makes his decision.

ROSWELL, Ga. — Running back Eric Swinney was one of 13 ESPN Junior 300 prospects to attend the Atlanta Nike Football Training Camp on Sunday. Of those 13, 12 are from Georgia, which regularly churns out elite college football players. For some reason, however, the state doesn’t seem to get the recognition as a top talent-producing state.

Instant analysis: Georgia 38, Auburn 0

Georgia's heading back to the SEC championship game.

The Bulldogs clinched a spot in Atlanta for the second consecutive year after routing Auburn 38-0 on Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Georgia (9-1, 7-1 SEC) jumped out to a 28-0 lead in the first half and the result never seemed in doubt. Here's a look at the high points:

It was over when: The teams went into the locker room at the half. The Bulldogs scored on each of their first four drives, all of which covered at least 64 yards. They punted only once in their first seven drives.

Game ball goes to: Running backs Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall. The pair led Georgia to a 289-yard rushing effort. Gurley had 116 yards on 11 carries (an average of 10.5 yards a tote) along with a touchdown and Marshall added 105 yards on eight carries (13.1 yard average) with a touchdown of his own.

Key stat: 497. That's how many yards Georgia ended up with, a total that could have been higher if the game wasn't already well in hand by the third quarter. The Bulldogs averaged 7.4 yards per play and Aaron Murray threw for 208 yards on 18 of 24 attempts, including three touchdown tosses.

Key play: Murray connected with receiver Tavarres King for a 55-yard completion with 5:32 left in the second quarter to get the Bulldogs to the Auburn 6. Murray did get a little pressure up the middle as he threw, but made a perfect throw to King over the coverage. The completion set up Georgia's fourth touchdown, which made it 28-0.

What it means: As SEC East Division champions, the Bulldogs will await the SEC West champion for a Dec. 1 showdown in Atlanta. Alabama had the chance to clinch that berth on Saturday but was upset by Texas A&M and will now need a victory over Auburn to clinch the West. For the Tigers (2-8, 0-7), it was another ugly loss in what has become a nightmarish season. They are still without a conference win and it will only continue to increase the pressure on head coach Gene Chizik.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Thomson (Ga.) tight end Jordan Davis might not be a household name right now, but he has seen his stock rise over the last several weeks.

On Wednesday, the 6-foot-4, 225-pound athlete spoke with Florida head coach Will Muschamp.

"It went good," Davis said. "I called coach [Derek] Lewis and he told me to call him again a little later so that he could put me on the phone with him [Muschamp]. So I called back later, he put me on the phone with him and he told me they were looking for some good tight ends. So they want me to get down there, so the can sit down and talk to me and see if they want to offer me."

As Auburn and Georgia meet again in The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry, oddsmakers in Las Vegas have picked the Bulldogs to be almost a two touchdown favorite over the Tigers. This bucks the historical trend of the road team winning this game.

The visiting team in this rivalry has consistently done well, as both Auburn and Georgia have winning road records against each other. Georgia is 14-10-2 in games played at Jordan-Hare Stadium while Auburn is 18-11 in games played in Athens.

Former Georgia coach Vince Dooley can attest to the visitor’s success, as he earned a number of road wins and home losses during his 25 years of coaching the Bulldogs. He points to the 1970 and 1971 contests to illustrate the history of the rivalry.
