Georgia’s recruiting class of 2005 won’t hit the field for another three days, and the Bulldogs already have 60 percent of their class of 2006 penciled in.

On Monday, wide receiver Tony Wilson out of Mainland High School in Daytona Beach, Fla., and cornerback Prince Miller out of Byrnes High School in Duncan, S.C., became Georgia’s 14th and 15th verbal commitments. Both players told of their decisions.

Wilson, 5-foot-10, 170 pounds, picked Georgia over Florida, Florida State, LSU and Tennessee. He had more than 1,000 all-purpose yards as a junior, but he could play either side of the ball once he arrives in Athens.

“I chose Georgia because of all the early recruiting they did,” Wilson told “That’s what really sold me. They just told me the truth and I saw everything for myself. They never just told me what I wanted to hear, and I liked that.”

Miller, 5-foot-9, 185 pounds, and Byrnes High School quarterback Will Korn held a press conference at their school to make their decisions public. Miller chose the Bulldogs over Florida State, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia Tech. Korn, who was not being recruited by the Bulldogs, made a verbal commitment to Clemson.

“It’s been a long road, and it’s been fun, but I was ready to get it over with,” Miller told “I think Georgia is the best situation for me.”

The commitments continue an unusual trend for Georgia, which has more pledges from out-of-state players (eight) than homegrown products (seven). The Bulldogs have commitments from three Florida players, two South Carolina players and a player each from Texas, North Carolina and Maryland.

The commitments aren’t slouches either. According to’s ranking system, four of them are five-star players and three more are four-star players.

Verbal commitments are non-binding. Players can’t make their decisions official until national signing day in February. College teams are allowed to bring in a maximum of 25 new players each August.
