Three more freshmen qualify

Add the names of cornerback Jordan Love, wide receiver Marlon Brown and defensive end Montez Robinson to the list of Georgia's incoming freshmen who have already qualified to enroll for fall semester.

On Monday, the trio's names joined 11 other newcomers who now appear in the official online UGA telephone directory, indicating that each has already been accepted into school.

Branden Smith, Chase Vasser, Chris Burnette, Arthur Lynch , Abry Jones, Rantavious Wooten, Michael Gilliard and Austin Long learned last week that they had already made the grade.

They join early enrollees Aaron Murray, Zach Mettenberger and Dallas Lee, who began taking classes in January and completed spring drills with the rest of the team.

Georgia will learn the status of its remaining signees in the days to come leading up to when the full team reports for summer conditioning drills and volunteer workouts in June.

That list includes Kwame Geathers, Washaun Ealey, Orson Charles, Derrick Lott, Shawn Williams and Brandon Bogotay.

The news on the trio was no doubt gratifying to Bulldog coaches.

With depth an issue at both wide receiver and defensive end, both freshmen will have the opportunity to show coaches that they have what it takes to contribute their first year.

As a senior, Brown totaled 1,785 yards with 19 touchdowns, while Robinson was a first-team all-state performer in Indiana after recording 82 tackles, including 20 tackles for a loss with eight sacks. He collected 14 sacks as a junior.

Love was ranked as the No. 1 cornerback in Virginia by Rivals.com and could also challenge for playing time this fall.
