As we count down to signing day, when late commitments are often overrated and early ones underrated, we continue our look back at the players who have signed at Georgia over the past decade.

Given the benefit of hindsight, we are ranking Georgia's 10 best recruits since the 2003 signing class, ranked by their on-field performance during their time at Georgia.

No. 10 was Brandon Boykin in 2008.

No. 9 is ...

S BACARRI RAMBO
2009 signing class
Hometown: Donalsonville
High School: Seminole County
Star rating: Three stars, according to Rivals.com and Scout.com
Rankings: Rated the No. 128 prospect in the South by Scout.com, and the No. 23 prospect in Georgia, and the No. 29 safety in the nation by Scout.com.
Recruiting accolades: Named a Pre-Star All-Southeast Region selection, and to SuperPrep's All-Dixie team. He was also a Class A honorable mention by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Georgia Sports Writers Association.
