2018 North Georgia Player Rankings (99-50)


175-100 | 99-50 | 49-1

Below is the initial North Georgia Top 175 (99-50) for the Class of 2018. We have already released 175-100 yesterday, and 49-1 will be posted on Thursday, so be sure to check back tomorrow to see the complete list.

This list will change over the next year, with players being added and moved around. Why? Some athletes physically develop later in life, especially offensive linemen, while others peak at an early age and never seem to get any better by the time they are seniors.

What is my definition of North Georgia? Any school above the gnat line starting with Macon all the way to the Tennessee line.

Over the last three recruiting cycles, Georgia has produced 599 FBS signees; 80 percent of those players hail from north of Warner Robins. That means in any given year there are approximately 160 football players going DI from North Georgia.

In 2016, the Peach State produced an all-time high of 207 high school football players signing FBS scholarships. California, with four times the population of Georgia, only produced 20 more DI signees in that same year. Yes, Georgia has become a hotbed of recruiting for colleges all over the country!

It’s our goal to help as many football players in the state of Georgia reach their goal of playing football on a full or partial scholarship. In the end, it’s the education that a student-athlete receives that will eventually carry them through their entire life. Football is a great sport, but eventually it comes to an end at an early age.

Any coach who feels that their current junior athlete has been missed for consideration on this list should contact us via Twitter @BVEvery or @RecruitGeorgia. Please include the HUDL link when promoting your player.

One important tip when making your highlight is to keep it between three and six minutes long. Make sure your top plays are first, and remember that not every tackle, run, catch or pass is highlight-worthy. Your goal is to seize the attention of college coaches.
