Rating the recruits

ESPN takes a look at their 2011 ESPNU 150 class and talks a bit about how each recruit turned out. We’ve got a few on that list:

4. Isaiah Crowell, RB, Georgia: Crowell lived up to the billing on the field, giving Georgia an explosive back when he was in the lineup. Crowell started seven games, leading the Bulldogs in rushing with 894 yards and a 4.7-yard average on 182 carries. While there have been flashes of greatness, Crowell has had two suspensions for violations of team rules, fumbling issues and some injury concerns.

13. Ray Drew, DE, Georgia: Considering his lack of playing time, Drew showed signs he can be a solid — if not standout — defensive end in the SEC. Playing in just six games, Drew registered 2½ tackles for loss, including a half-sack, three quarterback hurries and a fumble recovery.

18. Jay Rome, TE, Georgia: Rome redshirted and will play basketball this season. His football playing time in 2012 will depend largely on whether junior tight end Orson Charles decides to return for his senior season. Otherwise, Rome will likely be on the back burner again until 2013.

45. Malcolm Mitchell, WR, Georgia: Mitchell made a big impact for the Bulldogs, leading the team in receiving yards, despite missing three games with a hamstring injury. The receiver caught 38 balls for 614 yards and four touchdowns while averaging more than 16 yards a reception.

They’ve only rated roughly 75 of the 150 so far so they’ve yet to mention Damian Swann and Christian LeMay, although, as you know, LeMay redshirted. Take a look and see how some of the guys we missed out on performed, including Quan Bray, Xzavier Dickson and Gabe Wright.
