Every Top 25 College Football Team's Defensive Catalyst for 2015

If we could just get a stop...

Those words are muttered, uttered or yelled by pretty much every college football coach in the game—a communal desire for the defense to step up and make a big play. Whether it's to thwart a drive by the opponent or to force a quick possession and swing momentum in its favor, a big defensive play can do wonders for a team's chances for success.

And these are the guys who usually get it done.

Every team has that one player it can always call on to be the catalyst on defense, to make that big stop when it's needed most. They might not be the best defender on the field, but in crunch time, they're the one usually coming through.

Using Bleacher Report's post-spring practice rankings as a basis, here's our look at the defensive catalyst for every Top 25 team in the FBS.

Georgia Football: Bulldogs Could Be in for Big Recruiting Month

The spring evaluation period of the college football recruiting calendar will come to a close at the end of May, but one school in particular is looking to close out the month with a flurry: the Georgia Bulldogs.

Mark Richt and his staff have already assembled a class with 10 commitments that currently rates as the nation's No. 6 class.

That commitment list could swell in the coming days as a pair of top in-state targets—4-star corner Chad Clay and 4-star defensive tackle Tyler Clark—have both stated their intentions to commit in the near future.

Georgia is heavily in the mix for both players, and if both choose to head to Athens, it could be the start of a charge toward a No. 1 class. 

According to Trent Smallwood of Rivals, Florida, Georgia Tech and Ohio State are the other schools battling to land Clay.

However, Georgia took the lead for Clay after a visit in February. While schools such as Ohio State have made a push for the 6'1", 180-pounder, he's been a fixture on the UGA campus in recent months and made it clear that the thought of staying close to home appeals to him. 

"When I think about it, in the long run, I'd love to stay at home and play with some of my good friends and people I've grown up with since I've been playing football," Clay told Bleacher Report in February. "To stay at home and play college football and win, that would be a great thing."

Similarly, Clark is on the verge of making his decision, perhaps by Friday, as Rusty Mansell of 247Sports noted.

Last month, Clark proclaimed the Bulldogs his leader.

The 6'3", 290-pounder is part of a loaded crop of defensive linemen from the Peach State this year.

Clay noted that a strong bond exists with a number of the state's top recruits from the 2016 cycle. Landing both in-state standouts would only seem to fuel the 'Dawgs' chances of racking up on other top Georgia prospects.

One such player would be 5-star defensive tackle Julian Rochester, who named Georgia his leader earlier in the spring and recently told Kipp Adams of Dawgs247 that he could also have a decision soon:

It might be...I am still debating. Maybe late May. I have a good idea where I want to go. I have kind of seen enough on my visits to make a decision. More yes than no.

Of course, the winds in recruiting can change in an instant.

However, the dominoes appear to be lining up for Georgia to land its first top-five class since 2009. But this class has the potential to be the best class Richt has signed in the last decade.

The happenings of the next few weeks could have a huge impact on Georgia's ability to lure one of the nation's elite classes to Athens on signing day.
