SB Nation's college football recruiting guru Bud Elliot has his Top 10 list of prospects to watch for the 2013 class ready to go, and the state of Georgia boasts three of them, including a potential prodigy defensive lineman. For a complete list of the future stars of the 2013 class, click here.

Robert Nkemdiche, defensive end, Loganville (Ga.) Grayson:

"When Jadeveon Clowney was a senior, he was the best defensive line prospect to come along in a long time. Just two years later, Nkemdiche might be better. Some like him as a defensive tackle, but his best fit is probably as a 5-technique in a 3-4. Alabama, the team many believe will ultimately land this Peach State star, runs a 3-4. High school juniors just aren't supposed to be this powerful and quick. Nkemdiche wrecked a lot of very good Georgia offenses."

Reuben Foster, linebacker, LaGrange (Ga). Troup County:

"Foster has been wowing recruitniks ever since his freshman film hit YouTube. The best way to describe his game is probably just a comparison: Patrick Willis. Both Willis and Foster are shorter backers, but they don't let the lack of an inch or two negatively impact their game. Both are excellent athletes and are incredible hitters."

Montravious Adams, defensive tackle, Vienna (Ga.) Dooly County:

"Adams is one of the most impressive defensive linemen in the class of 2013. He already has good size and should be able to add a lot more in a college strength program. Adams is very quick and strong. He's simply too much for opposing blockers in high school."
