Alabama and Florida State are garnering a lot of the headlines in the 2015 recruiting cycle, but the Georgia Bulldogs aren’t far behind with the No. 3 recruiting class.

Already with 25 hard commitments in the class, UGA has loaded up on defensive talent, including the nation’s No. 2 overall recruit defensive tackle Trent Thompson.

Behind Thompson, Georgia’s also pulled in some other top talent along the defensive line in defensive ends Jonathan Ledbetter and Natrez Patrick.

Despite a disappointing finish to the 2014 regular season, next year figures to be another season filled with high expectations for the Bulldogs and their 2015 recruiting class.
