When five-star linebacker Reuben Foster (Auburn, Ala./Auburn) transferred in the spring, he robbed Georgia of the rare distinction of being home to the No. 1 and No. 2 prospects in the country.
Nevertheless, the 2013 crop of talent in Georgia is as deep as it has been in recent memory, with 15 ESPN 150 prospects and 31 ESPN 300 prospects. California, a state often in the discussion for having the most talent in the country, has 13 ESPN 150 prospects and 34 ESPN 300 prospects this year.
It all starts with Robert Nkemdiche (Loganville, Ga./Grayson), the No. 1 prospect in the country. Looking closer, the group of defensive linemen in the Peach State is elite, with the No. 1 and No. 2 defensive ends in the country in Nkemdiche and Carl Lawson (Alpharetta, Ga./Milton), as well as ESPN 150 prospects Montravius Adams (Vienna, Ga./Dooly Co.), Kelsey Griffin (Hoschton, Ga./Mill Creek) and Isaac Rochell (McDonough, Ga./Eagles Landing Christian Academy).
Georgia has a class of prospects as good as any in recent memory and has to be considered one of the nation's best.
