    Diffilcult task. Thank you for the insight. Landin Jackson is a beast at single A and 4 year starter Jake Wilson is simply an artist in the secondary. However, I would be willing to bet a good sum of money we will also see Niko Vangarelli on the GACA All State (first team) at the end of the season.

    Jordan Jakes ( former elca wideout) transferred to St. Frances Academy…. he is something serious keep a eye out for him.

    I agree that Niko will more than likely be on that list at the end of the year.
    Landon and Jake both have their tickets punched to play at the next level too.
    What ablout Kyle Terry and Christain Manion?
    Kyle has freakish athletic gifts and Christian dominated opponents last year at DE.
    Both have been in contact with some good programs and have bright futures in the game as well.
    No list will ever be 100% all inclusive, becuase they can’t be, but those two guys just might be on there at the end as well…..

    MPC has some very good athletes!! Vangarelli is a man child at 6’3 225 lbs saw a video of him cleaning over 300lbs!! Throws it 60+ in the air and a very underrated runner!! Many power 5 looking at him!! Brewster at Darlington another good one at QB!!! Has a few offers Should be a very competitive year in Single A private !

    1. Might as well throw in Vandagriff, Gauthier & Van Wie if you want pure upside as well. Brayden Rush has been unbeatable running the offense the last few years, he drove down the field in the 4th quarter of the state championship game as a sophomore making big plays in the final minutes – including a mega 4th down conversion. Last year he totaled close 2000 yards, 7.85 yards per rush, & 28 touchdowns while only playing in the first half of games. This is All-State player selection, not player rankings. Go beat Brayden Rush and ELCA if you want that spot, because he puts up great number, makes clutch plays, and runs his offense very efficiently.

    Nobody in 1A Private will ever beat the University of ELCA!
    Recruit much? Nah, of course not!
    Only Marietta HS does that! LOL

    Nobody saying Rush and Knight do not belong at the top of this list. People just sharing thoughts like you ask them to do.

    1. Yes, and I posted my thoughts too. If Rush played full games his total yardage would double any of the QB mentioned above. The high upside QB’s mentioned above could potentially be the best QB’s in Class A private, but they need to cut down turnovers and lead their team to a title. They are very talented players, no doubt though.

    Don’t know about the other QBs mentioned above but Vangarelli had zero turnovers, started all but one game, played defense and led his team to semis as a sophomore. He is fun to watch. David, you likely accounted for Mount Paran having a dual QB situation much of last season. No dual situation this season, so should really give Vangarelli full ownership as a QB. Best of luck to all these young men and I hope they all achieve ther goals. And thanks for this fine platform, I enjoy RecruitGeorgia.

  8. Jonathan Youngblood all around player! Always around the ball!
