During the month of February we held 3 combines and gather data on well over 100 athletes, and here are some of the top athletes so far during the combine season. The three locations are from Cobb Co., Columbus and Jackson Co. with some outstanding times that are verified with our laser timers, which completely takes human error out of the equation. For more information about the Recruit Georgia Combine series please click HERE.
The information has already been sent off to NCAA college subscribers, and we have also provided each athlete with data from each event. Recruit Georgia profiles are being made each day on the website, and I’m close to being able to hire some help too, so that’s exciting.
So with no more introductory talk, here is the top players at each data set Recruit Georgia Combines have collected thus far. Scroll down to the very bottom to see our early offseason Combine MVP for upperclassmen and underclassmen.
Jamarquez Tyson, SO Washington-Wilkes – 4.65 (Jackson)
Ayden Griswold, JR Jackson Co. – 4.69 (Jackson)
Justin Meyers, JR Washington-Wilkes – 4.69 (Jackson)
Top Dog – Tyson played on the varsity as a freshman, and shows some good film tackling out in space against top teams in Class A. The 2022 athlete was mostly a defensive back last fall. His 40 time was the best by far, and for a class of 2022 athlete his laser timed 40 is extremely impressive. Look for him to start at FS next year for Washington-Wilkes and potentially getting him on offense too.
Stephen Hood, SR Kell – 6’5″ (Cobb)
Sheldon Brown, SR Northside – 6’4″ (Columbus)
David Evbomenya, JR Sprayberry – 6’4″ (Cobb)
Jake O’Buck, SR Sprayberry – 6’4″ (Cobb)
Mason Cook, SR Shaw – 6’3.5″ (Columbus)
Top Dog – Hood comes out as the tallest of the combine season so far being a legit 6’5″, and still very young for his class. Good upside and developing fundamentals. Hood is in store for a big senior year with another year in the weight room under his belt.
Kale Gibbs, JR LaGrange – 6.97 (Columbus)
Jackson Canup, SR Hart Co. – 7.05 (Jackson)
Colton Boone, JR Jackson Co. – 7.08 (Jackson)
Connor Mayfield, SR Flowery Branch – 7.11 (Jackson)
Justin Meyers, JR Washington-Wilkes – 7.12 (Jackson)
Top Dog – Gibbs is the only athlete to run under a sub-7 second L-Drill time so far. The 2021 athlete was mostly on the JV last year, but as a rising junior, and several back graduating at LaGrange, the chance for reps are wide open at this point. Watching over his freshman film from Arizona, and Gibbs quickness really stands out, especially on this nice 50-yard scamper.
Justin Meyers, JR Washington-Wilkes – 34″ (Jackson)
KeAndre Harper, SR Carver – 33.4″ (Columbus)
Yadiel Alvarez, JR Northside – 32.2″ (Columbus)
Corey Danner, JR Washington-Wilkes – 32″ (Jackson)
KD Stokes, SR Walton – 31.5″ (Cobb)
Top Dog – Meyers’ 34″ inch vertical drew ooh’s and ahh’s from our Jackson County combine a few weeks back. The 2021 athlete got so high, that we had to extend our Vertec. The rising junior measured out to be 5’10” 175 lbs. at our combine and shows the potential to be the next big playmaker for Washington-Wilkes at receiver with All-State WR Deondre Lester graduating.
Justin Meyers, JR Washington-Wilkes – 9’10” (Jackson)
A.J. Harris, FR Brookstone – 9’9″ (Columbus)
Austin Timmons-Padgett, SR Etowah – 9’6″ (Cobb)
Seth Farmer, SR Jackson Co. – 9’5″ (Jackson)
Top Dog – Meyers comes out on top again for our first three combines. The 2021 athlete’s 9’10” broad jump notches him just ahead of future Brookstone freshman A.J. Harris, who tested off the charts for a rising high school freshman. Meyers’ continues to be near the tops at most drills tho, which says a lot about his explosiveness.
Ryker Brown, SR North Paulding – 4.18 (Cobb)
AJ Harris, FR Brookstone – 4.22 (Columbus)
Lincoln Parker, JR Marist – 4.23 (Cobb)
Ja’Corey Harper, SR Carver – 4.32 (Columbus)
Tre Walker, SR Hillgrove – 4.33 (Cobb)
Colton Boone, JR Jackson Co. – 4.33 (Jackson)
Top Dog – Brown was part of North Paulding’s efficient passing attack last year where his quickness at the slot position got him open down field. The 2020 athlete’s 4.18 shuttle time is the only sub-4.2 time during the Combine Series so far. The rising senior will continue to work on his route running this offseason, and with his quickness, should be a tough matchup next fall.
Upperclassmen MVP – Justin Meyers, JR Washington Wilkes (Jackson)
The class of 2021 wide receiver was explosive at our Jackson Combine, and tested out great across the board sans his shuttle time due to slipping on the turf. Meyer’s was in the top 5 for 40 time, L-Drill, Vertical and Broad jump. Athletically speaking, the 5’10” 174.2 lbs. athlete has immense upside, and showed some legit flashes last year developing a relationship with senior QB Donovan Anthony.
Underclassmen MVP – A.J. Harris, FR Brookstone (Columbus)
Harris already stands 6’0.5″ and weighs 162 lbs. and has not even stepped on Brookstone’s campus. The supreme athlete’s 9’9″ broad jump is just staggering, and his 4.22 shuttle time is just flat out elite for his age group. The class of 2023 athlete is just beginning to scratch at the surface of his potential, but it’s safe to assume that Harris will be making some noise next fall for Brookstone, even as a freshman.
