Recruiting gets hotter; Beard commits

In many ways it just made sense. Mark Beard has a long standing relationship with Coach Friend, going back to when Beard was in high school near Birmingham and Friend was at UAB. Yesterday, as he finished his visit to UGA he committed to Georgia.

Beard spent this past season playing for Coffeeville Community College, just graduated and will have three seasons of eligibility left. He'll be on campus next month, ready to contribute to an offensive line that will lose three starters.

And at 6'5" and 300lbs, chances are he can take Glenn or Anderson's spots at tackle. Take a look at some of his high school tape.

This is a huge get for Richt, literally and figuratively. Congrats to Coach Friend and congrats to Beard. Welcome to the Dawg Nation!

This is a huge commit. That gives us 4 Ol and I believe the number Richt wants is 6. Now if we can get Davis from Stephenson to sign at RB and maybe Gurly we are going to be finishing strong! GO DAWGS!
