ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - After landing one of his most heralded signing classes in February, Georgia coach Mark Richt called the group "my dream team."
Halfway through the season Richt says the class has played up to its billing. Top freshmen include the team's leading rusher, Isaiah Crowell, and leading receiver, Malcolm Mitchell. Linebacker Amarlo Herrera has started four games and is tied for fourth on the team with 24 tackles.
In all, 15 members of the signing class have played this season. The newcomers have helped Georgia recover from an 0-2 start with four straight wins as it enters Saturday night's game at Vanderbilt.
Richt says it's all proof "we signed a bunch of great players."
