Sleeper of the Day

Lamar Pounds
2025 QB

Pounds has some impressive arm talent where he can naturally uncork a pass +50 yards downfield in a blink. The 2025 QB can just flat-out sling the football and has one of the livest arms in the state. Even on the run, he can put the ball on a line so receivers be ready. That said, Pounds does need to sharpen up his game. His arm slot consistently changes angles and even in the highlights the ball tends to be thrown too high when hitting his receivers on short to intermediate throws. He is flat-out a raw talent, but intrinsically has a lot more value than his recruitment would currently suggest. Options teams should love his upside though. With the arm strength to throw the football deep downfield on top of being an explosive runner with excellent change of direction, Pounds is the type of QB who can make quick reads and attack a defense. If he can continue to hone his skills in managing the game while sharpening up his fundamentals, then Pounds can be an impactful game-managing dual-threat passer. Given his 6’3″ frame, colleges are sure to be interested in Pounds just beyond playing QB, which that versatility creates additional value for sure. Over the summer, Pounds is continuing to sharpen up his game and was a top performer at the beginning of this month at the FBU camp down in Florida.


Nick Chao
2025 Pope

Chao was a sleeper of the day not too long ago, and after a strong few camp performances, the senior out of Pope had some serious college options. Chao earned an offer from Brown on June 27th and provides the Ivy League school with a versatile skill set to play across the defensive line of scrimmage. At 6’2″ 270 lbs., Chao shows good quickness off the line, playing with excellent fundamentals and urgency.

AJ Andrews
2025 Spalding
Georgia State

Andrews was the cornerstone of the Spalding OL in 2023. The senior LT helped Spalding to a top 5 regular season finish and they were among the most dominant teams in 4A. At the next level, Andrews is a good fit at offensive guard at 6’4″ and 305 lbs. He does a good job of pulling to the perimeter and being physical in space; plus his good footwork as a pass blocker makes him more advanced than your normal OG at his development. This was a great scouting job by Georgia State identifying one of the best IOL in the state of Georgia.

Miles Glover
2025 Pace Acd.
William & Mary

The 6’8″ 330 lbs. offensive lineman saw his recruitment grow in interest during the spring cycle. William & Mary competed with schools like USF and Duke at one point for Glover’s recruitment, and the Tribe pulled the victory with his commitment. There is a lot of upside for Glover, who just starting to realize the great advantage his frame controls on the field.

Jaiden Braker
2025 South Gwinnett
South Carolina

The rising senior out of South Gwinnett ran several 100m times around 11 seconds this spring, and considering his near 6’4″ frame, the potential to become an elite edge rusher is just too much. Braker has a lot of upside, and his acceleration to the ball indicates that track and field speed is not just translateable, but a huge advantage. Braker has the tools to end up being an elite edge rusher at South Carolina and beyond.

Dennis Uzochukwu
2025 Peachtree Ridge
Georgia State

Since last season, the 6’6″ Gwinnett County offensive lineman has gained about 30-40 lbs. That’s a huge jump in weight, but also not the only drastic change for Uzochukwu. He also transferred from Discovery to Peachtree Ridge, where he is expected to be a huge part of the prolific offensive attack. Uzochukwu shows a great motor while blocking and you have like his leg drive while engaged. The added strength should yield a lot more pancakes and knockdowns. His film could take a jump senior year, so Georgia State might be in for a battle to hold on considering his great frame plus upside.

Ray Dixon
2025 North Cobb Christian

The sack-artist and All-Region defensive player of the year makes his commitment to Army known. Dixon is about 6’2″ or so, depending on who is measuring, and has an insatiable appetite to get after the quarterback. You can teach guys all of the fundamentals in the world, and trust me, Dixon is well-schooled, but some guys can just time a snap, and he’s got that. The North Cobb Christian senior is a strong candidate for All-State this upcoming fall and will be among Georgia’s leaders in sacks.

Three ‘n Out

Jonesboro class of ’26 athlete Jontavius Wyman is making his commitment tomorrow – EDIT – That has now been changed to July 27th at the Jonesboro media day. He was a unanimous All-State selection as a sophomore and routinely made our weekly accolades on the site. Wyman has a lot of Travis Hunter in his game, and if he continue to progress than his production will only continue to skyrocket to similar results.

Chase Foster is an incoming freshman that is set to be one of the top players in his recruiting class. The class of ’28 defensive lineman holds offers from Georgia State, UAB, Arkansas and Syracuse. At 6’4″ and 235 lbs., Foster is ready to make an immediate impact at the varsity level, and you have to imagine more P4 offers are on the horizon soon. He is my favorite to be the #1 prospect in the class of ’28 so far.

What’s this? A tweet about baseball being highlighted in the recap? Well of course we need to highlight rising Woodward Acd. senior Landon Walker during the offseason. The two-sport star shows off his speed on this triple, which you see similar quickness on the gridiron where Walker can escape out of the pocket and scramble for big gains. He helped his team to the 6A state title, and this fall Walker will have full responsibility of the QB duties. Woodward Academy will be a favorite in the newly reclassified 5A to win it all, and Walker’s integral play will be tantamount to their success. Walker
