Georgia Lands Arguably The Top Overall Recruit In The Country

Rejoice, Georgia fans. The Bulldogs just landed arguably the top overall recruit in the country for the class of 2015 - defensive tackle Trent Thompson. Thompson, who hails from Albany, Georgia, is an absolute monster, standing at 6-foot-4 and weighing 292 pounds. Seth Emerson of The Macon Telegraph was the first to report the news.

Thompson, ranked No. 1 in the country at his position by most recruiting outlets, chose UGA over Auburn, Alabama, Clemson and Florida, among others. Back in March, he made it seem like it was a two-school race between Georgia and Alabama. It's safe to assume that Bulldogs fans will take the victory here.
