Dawgs lose a big one; Bama grabs two . . .

Yikes, the Georgia class has been hit by its biggest defection yet: 5-star receiver Da'Rick Rogers has notified the Dawg coaches that he's signing tomorrow with Tennessee. Read here for more

This is a major setback for UGA coach Mark Richt, even before you consider that Rogers is setting aside a 2-year recruiting relationship to opt with a Tennessee coach who's been on the job only two weeks.

Kudos to Derek Dooley, son of the Georgia scion. And while UGA will get its share of good players, it's clearly spewing oil as the hours toward signing day tick down.

Meanwhile, Alabama has reacted to the apparent loss of its highest-ranked commitment, Greensboro's Keenan Allen, by landing two players: Dequan Menzie, a highly rated junior college defensive back, and offensive lineman Arie Kouandjio of venerable DeMatha High in Maryland.

The big man comes with a possible windfall: Little brother Cyrus is even bigger than he, and is a heavy lean for the Tide's 2011 class.

UGA got Memphis' Marlon Brown last year in the last minutes. I guess its TN's turn. And playing SC got a whole lot tougher with Lattimore's signing.

Let's see if Spurrier has some Fred Taylor dust to spread over Lattimore. Carolina's running game has been atrocious for a long time.
