Stephens County OT Ben Cleveland is a big man. 6'7, 320+ pounds of mostly muscle, and resembling the body of an NFL lineman when he entered high school, he's been one of the more hyped high school players in Georgia in a long time. He also just committed to the G.

In addition to one of the top offensive lineman in the 2016 (read high school juniors this fall) class, Mark Richt landed one of the nation's top prep QBs in Lake Stevens, Washington's Jacob Eason. The son of former Notre Dame WR Tony Eason (not the former Illinois and New England Patriots QB) will also have two high schools seasons to play before making his way from the northern Seattle suburb to Athens.

Combined with commits from 2015 Florida athletes Shaquery Wilson and Deontai Williams makes this another extremely successful Dawg Night weekend. Multiple big name commitments is an annual tradition at the summer recruiting event.

Dawgsports will have a more in depth looks at the new guys tomorrow and this coming week.
