ATHENS - The recruiting front was quiet for two months as Georgia began practice and then its season. But on the eve of another big game, the attention can briefly turn to 2014.

Outside linebacker Keyon Brown of Wauchula, Fla., announced a commitment to the Georgia football team on Thursday, according to multiple reports. Brown is rated a four-star prospect on the 247Sports Composite, and is listed at 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds. He is a senior at Hardee High School.

Georgia now has 17 commitments for next year's class, and the final total is not expected to go too far past 20.

Here is the current list of Georgia's commtments for the 2014 class, with vital statistics via, and comments from myself:

RB Sony Michel .... 5-11, 205 .... Fort Lauderdale, Fla. ... 5 stars
A potential immediate-impact type of player, even with Gurley and Marshall around.

RB Nick Chubb ... 5-11, 216 ... Cedartown ... 4 stars
Another tailback good enough to play right away, or at least once carries are available.

DT Lamont Gaillard ... 6-3, 310 ... Fayetteville, N.C. ... 4 stars
A potentially elite player who can be a factor on Georgia's defensive line in 2014.

TE Jeb Blazevich ... 6-4, 230 .... Charlotte, N.C. ..... 4 stars
Georgia has succeeded lately with out-of-state tight ends, (Arom White, Orson Charles, Arthur Lynch), and hopes Blazevich is next.

OLB Keyon Brown .... 6-3, 230 .... Wauchula, Fla. ... 4 stars
Another edge-rushing prospect who can play either defensive end or outside linebacker.

CB Malkom Parish ... 5-9, 186 ... Quitman ........ 4 stars
Speedy and skilled, rated in the national top 100 and No. 6 overall in the state of Georgia.

QB Jacob Park ... 6-3, 202 .... Goose Creek, S.C. .... 4 stars
A pro-style quarterback with some mobility, Park chose Georgia over Alabama, Virginia Tech and other elite programs.

DT Dontavius Russell .... 6-3, 300 .... Carrollton .... 4 stars
One of Chris Wilson's first recruits for Georgia, a player who will have a chance to play right away.

OT Dyshon Sims .... 6-4, 278 ...... Valdosta ...... 4 stars
Considered one of the top in-state O-line prospects this year, Sims also had an offer from Alabama, among others.

WR Shakenneth Williams ... 6-1, 195 ... Macon .... 4 stars
Williams plays at a high school (Rutland) that hasn't had much on-field success, but impressed enough at camps to earn an offer.

Isaiah Wynn .... 6-2, 272 .... St. Petersburg, Fla. ... 4 stars
A good interior line prospect who will be given a chance to crack the rotation.
S Kendall Gant ......... 6-2, 185 .... Lakeland, Fla. ... 3 stars
The tall safety was another Dawg Night addition.

ILB Detric Dukes .... 6-0, 220 .... Tucker .... 3 stars
Flipped to Georgia after originally committing to Louisville, he may be small and "only" three stars, but so was Reggie Carter last year.

CB Shattle Fenteng ... 6-2, 200 ... Hutchinson C.C. ... 3 stars
Rated the top cornerback prospect at the junior college level.

G Jake Edwards .......... 6-4, 270 ...... Franklin .... 3 stars
An interior lineman whom Georgia hopes will continue to grow in the weight room.

WR Gilbert Johnson ...... 6-2, 190 ..... Miami, Fla. ... 3 stars
Actually looked taller than 6-2 at Mark Richt camp.

OT Kendall Baker .... 6-6, 275 .... Atlanta .... 4 stars
He's got the height for tackle, now he has to put on the weight, a la Xzavier Ward.
