There are some things you just can't have enough of. Barbecue sauce. Toilet paper. And if you're Georgia defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, safeties and cornerbacks. After losing a full two-deep's worth of defensive backs in the past year Pruitt seems dead set on replenishing the position in one recruiting cycle. He's already gotten commitments from six players likely to play defensive back, and that's not including Terry Godwin and Darius Slayton who could also move over to defense but are more likely to play receiver.

Now the Bulldogs have offered 2015 Chattanooga defensive back Kareem Orr as well. Orr had been committed to Louisville, but backed away from that pledge after picking up offers from Clemson, Oklahoma, and Mississippi State in recent months. Orr isn't the most highly rated corner in the class of 2015 (39th actually according to 247Sports, to be precise). But he fits the mold of other Pruitt recruits at the position: relatively big (5'11, 190 lb.) and aggressive in run support and coverage. Orr also flashes good hands, which have actually allowed him to make some solid plays this season at receiver for Notre Dame High School (you can see what I mean by viewing Orr's senior highlights here).

It will be interesting to see if the 'Dawgs can come out of the pack to secure Orr's services. My sense is that if Georgia's coaches can get him on campus in January ahead of National Signing Day they may have a shot. The distance to other big time programs who have jumped in on the fast-rising prospect should work in the Dawgs' favor. Plus nobody has as much early playing time to offer in 2015 as the Bulldogs. Until later...

Go 'Dawgs!!!
