Mark Richt is pleased with Miami's 18 commitments and points to his first class at Georgia as proof he's able to identify and sign future NFL players on short notice. His 2001 class at Georgia included Thomas Davis and Odell Thurman, rated as two-star recruits. David Pollack was listed as a three-star athlete. Miami signed the No. 19-ranked class with 10 ESPN 300 recruits.
