Georgia announces 17 signees, waits word on others

By  | 

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia has announced a football signing
class that includes 17 players, including a pair of quarterbacks.

Aaron Murray of Tampa, Fla., and Zach Mettenberger of
Watkinsville, Ga., already have enrolled at the school in hopes of
bolstering their chances to replace Matthew Stafford, who entered
the NFL draft after his junior season.

The Bulldogs also signed three offensive linemen, three
linebackers, three defensive backs and two defensive tackles.
Eleven of the signees are from within the state.

Georgia is still waiting to hear from some of its top national
targets, including receiver Marlon Brown of Memphis, Tenn. The
Bulldogs lost out on state high school player of the year Greg
Reid, a cornerback at Lowndes County High who said he'll go with
Florida State.
