Dream Team Additions


The 2011 recruiting class for the Dawgs got a huge boost this past week with the addition of Valdosta teammates Jay Rome and Malcolm Mitchell.

Rome is considered the number one tight end in the country by at least one recruiting service and the 6-5, 255 pound athlete is expected to see immediate playing time this fall. Rome’s father Stan was a two sport star at Clemson in the late 70’s, he played four seasons in the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs. Rome chose the Dawgs over Clemson.

Mitchell is rated as the number one corner in the state and the 6-1, 187 pound speedster has all the tools necessary to push for playing time this season. Mitchell is likely to see some snaps at receiver and may be used as a kick returner on special teams.

Carver’s Quintavious Harrow becomes the seventh defensive back in the class as the 6-0, 190 pound safety quickly accepted the offer from Coach Mark Richt to become a Dawg.

Earlier this month the Dawgs received verbal commitments from receiver Sanford Seay (6-2, 198) from Leesburg, Georgia along with defensive back Damian Swann (6-0, 175) from Atlanta’s Grady High School. Tampa Florida’s Ramik Wilson had become one of the states most recruited linebackers before announcing his intention of becoming a Dawg on the 7th.

With these latest additions, the Dream Team total is up to 21 with only a few days remaining before National Signing Day on February 2nd. With three or four remaining scholarships available, the primary targets are running back Isaiah Crowell from Columbus, linebacker Ray Drew from Thomasville, nose tackle Jonathan Jenkins from Gulf Coast Community College and offensive tackle Xzavier Ward from Moultrie.

The Dawgs would like to sign and are still recruiting Griffin star Xzavier Dickerson following his commitment to Alabama last week.
