Recruiting Recap 12/7

Welcome to another edition of the Recruiting Recap! Thanks for stopping by, and if you are new here, this is a feature where we cover all of the latest offers, commitments, decommitments and of course our sleeper of the day. There are a few more tidbits we can find that we’ll sprinkle through some recaps, so scroll on down below and see what happened over the weekend.

Feel free to reach out to @RecruitGeorgia on Twitter or! Have a great week everyone! – David


Phillip Ard
2021 North Oconee

Scoop: Consistent punter who was able to hit about 40 yards per attempt. Multi-year starter for a winning program. Ard is a solid punter who should be an instant contributor for LaGrange.

Javin Adderley
2021 Sandy Creek
Sacred Heart

Scoop: Adderley played well as a junior and really came on strong as a senior where he looked adept in coverage and improved from a physical standpoint. Sacred Heart doesn’t typically get into Georgia recruiting, but after nabbing a steal like Adderley they might jump in with more interest. Good cover corner and high-character young man.

LaMarcus Brand
2021 Mt. View
West Virginia Wesleyan

Scoop: Brand has some ball-skills that you don’t typically see for a high school recruit. He has very good balance and is able to contort his body midair to make acrobatic catches. He’s a solid all-around receiver who took a nice jump as a route runner in 2020. By our last check, he was on track for about 700 yards receiving in 7-A.

Coleman Smith
2021 Mt. Pisgah

Scoop: One of the leading passers in Class A Private and a real gunslinger who spreads the football around to his teammates. Smith has a good feel for the game, finding seams in the zone defense and leading his receiver well. The 2021 QB is a pretty big sleeper in this recruiting class honestly, so huge pickup for BSU.

Sleeper of the Day

Kale Gibbs
2021 LaGrange

Gibbs was the first athlete at our Combine Series to run a sub-7 second L-Drill, and his laser confirmed times would have ranked him among good company in the NFL combine as well. The 2021 athlete was fighting for playing time as a sophomore and a junior, and as a freshman, he was playing in Arizona. So it took a minute for Gibbs to really make an impact at the varsity level, but when his senior year finally hit and the reps opened up for Gibbs he made the most of it running for 1724 yards on 195 carries and 16 touchdowns, which made him one of the leaders in the state in rushing yards. The 4.0 student who stands 5’10” and 175 lbs. pops on film, and his ability to make quick subtle jukes with no slow-down allows for him to cut back against pursuit and just leave defenders nothing to tackle. Against all kinds of competition, Gibbs broke off long runs. He is a solid APB in this recruiting class, and though he doesn’t have elite top speed, he gets big chunks of yardage. When contact comes, Gibbs gets behind his pads and lowers his shoulder, driving his legs through the attempted tackle for extra yardage. Gibbs is a perfect fit for a spread offensive attack where he can get out in space and use his outstanding agility to get around tacklers. He currently holds D1 offers from Presbyterian, Stetson and Long Island – all coming this fall.
