In what is now widely considered to be the fourth-best state as far as FBS football talent is concerned, the 2013 class in Georgia could be the deepest group of talent to come out of the Peach State. More than 200 prospects are claiming offers at the moment, which would easily surpass the 170-180 FBS signees the state has averaged over the last three years. In this feature, RecruitingNation takes a look at the top five remaining uncommitted prospects in Georgia.

Martin hitting the recruiting trail

Part of the reason wide receivers coach Tee Martin was brought in this past spring was due to his terrific record as a national recruiter. But after coaching in the high school ranks at North Cobb (Kennesaw, Ga.) and North Atlanta high schools, Martin developed a reputation as a strong recruiter in Georgia, which is where the Trojans will utilize his talents this week.

After stops in New Jersey, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington D.C. last week, Martin hit Atlanta on Monday, making an early stop at Alpharetta (Ga.) Milton High School to check in on defensive end Carl Lawson. The No. 5 player in the ESPN 150 calls himself a solid commitment to Auburn, but he is only one of several Georgia standouts with early offers from the Trojans, who will likely receive visits from Martin.

After rushing for 1,300 yards and 17 touchdowns last fall, running back Alvin Kamara (Norcross, Ga./Norcross) was invited to participate in the weeklong Rising Seniors program in December in Atlanta. After impressing in practice all week at receiver, Kamara shined during the Georgia Junior Bowl, making a game-high eight catches for 117 yards.

His versatility and explosiveness have made the 5-foot-10, 190-pound Kamara one of the most coveted running backs in the Southeast, with double-digit offers from programs including Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia and USC. The Georgia Bulldogs were lucky enough to get Kamara on campus last weekend, and although they invited him to return Saturday for VID Day, he had made plans weeks ago to be elsewhere this weekend.

Then things changed.
