Georgia's "Dawg Days" football recruiting weekend has yielded two commitments for the 2015 signing class and two nationally elite recruits for 2016.

Committing Saturday evening to Georgia were quarterback Jacob Eason of Lake Stevens, Wash., and offensive tackle Ben Cleveland of Toccoa, Ga. The 6-foot-5, 207-pound Eason is rated by 247Sports.com as the No. 3 overall prospect for the 2016 class and the No. 1 pro-style quarterback.

The 6-6, 327-pound Cleveland is rated by 247Sports as the No. 11 overall prospect in the 2016 class.

Providing nonbinding pledges for 2015 were a pair of three-star Floridians, receiver Shaquery Wilson of Coral Gables and safety Deontai Williams of Jacksonville. Rivals.com ranks Wilson as the No. 52 receiver nationally and Williams the No. 35 safety.

Williams, a 6-1, 185-pounder, previously was committed to Florida.

The 6-1, 189-pound Wilson committed to the Bulldogs over scholarship offers from Arkansas, Louisville, West Virginia and Wisconsin. He and Williams give Georgia 15 commitments for the 2015 class.
