ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia is expecting to land one of the largest football signing classes in school history.

The Bulldogs are bolstered by 13 players who graduated early from high school and enrolled in Athens. Before noon, the school has announced 24 signees and expects at least seven more before the day is done.

This class is expected to be more about depth than big names. Georgia missed out on top-rated prospect Reuben Foster, who picked Alabama over Auburn and the Bulldogs. Also, the No. 1-ranked player in the nation, defensive end Robert Nkemdiche of Grayson High, signed with Ole Miss.

Georgia is coming off its second straight Southeastern Conference East Division title. The Bulldogs lost to Alabama in a thrilling SEC title game, missing a chance to play for the BCS championship.
