The Georgia Bulldogs' 2014 recruiting class filled many needs on both sides of the ball. The class includes a handful of players who could make an immediate impact as soon as they arrive on campus. There are five players in particular set to see plenty of playing time come August.
Shattle Fenteng will be expected to come in and make an immediate impact for the Bulldogs in 2014. The 6-foot-2 cornerback out of Hutchinson Community College in Kansas is a very physical player. He is exactly the type of corner defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt likes in his system. Fenteng will help the Bulldogs' secondary that struggled last season under Todd Grantham.
Isaiah McKenzie received a late offer from the Georgia Bulldogs and committed within days. The 2014 Under Armour All-American from Miami will join the Bulldogs with Sony Michel, a highly-touted running back. Expect McKenzie to be the Bulldogs' punt and kick returner as a freshman. Georgia has lacked an elite returner since Brandon Boykin left for the NFL.
Nick Chubb joins a stacked group of running backs at Georgia. Chubb is one of two five-star running backs the Bulldogs signed in 2014. He will arrive in the summer hoping to compete for playing. With Todd Gurley as the obvious starter, Chubb will need to work hard, but he has the attitude it takes to compete. The 230-pound back is a rare specimen. He has the speed and power to be a force in the SEC.
Just like Shattle Fenteng, Malkom Parrish was an important piece to the 2014 class. Parrish is another player who fits well in Jeremy Pruitt's scheme. He also played quarterback in high school but was too short to get any looks at the position. Parrish reacts quickly to the ball and also has great recovery skills. In 2014, expect to see the Army All-American all over the field for the Bulldogs.
Lorenzo Carter was the Bulldogs' biggest pickup in 2014. The five-star defensive end from Norcross, Ga. was one the most highly-touted recruits in the entire country. There is no doubt that Carter will see the field in 2014. He has the size and athletic ability to play both defensive end and outside linebacker for the Bulldogs. If Carter can put on some muscle, he will wreak havoc on opposing offenses.
