Sleeper of the Day

Nick Chao
2025 DL

Chao stands up off the line primarily at Pope, which says a lot about his athleticism and versatility as a defender. He is a fundamentally sound defensive lineman with a good punch at the point of attack. He has nice hand placement, gets good leverage, and rips through the blocker with solid intensity. The Pope defensive lineman does a solid job playing off the edge and reading the play, making some high-level reads off the mesh. Chao needs to continue to get more explosive off the snap, work on getting quicker with his first step, and just be lighter on his feet. He is growing into his body, so whether he plays this type of role at the college level or if he plays more inside is to be determined. Chao is now around 270 lbs., and looks to be well on his way to be around 280-290 at the collegiate level. He is a technically strong defender and has very good length, so his good block-shedding will only continue to improve as his hands become quicker and stronger. Chao had 72 tackles as a junior and 15 tackles for a loss, and to be honest, there is a huge vacuum due to graduation that set the defensive lineman up for a huge senior year. Chao is also a great student with a 4.3 GPA. The rising senior has offers from Carnegie Mellon and Sewanee. Over the last week, Chao camped at Florida, Furman and Elon.


Shane Throgrmartin
2025 Mill Creek

UPenn secures one of the most efficient passers in the state. Throgmartin was born to be a QB, he does a great job of going through his progressions and moving the chains.

Jackson Cook
2025 South Gwinnett

Cook is extremely fast posting a personal best 10.89 100m time this offseason. At 6’2″ and 180 lbs., Kansas is getting one of the best combinations of athleticism and size at the receiver position in the class of ’25.

Wayne Patterson
2025 Newton
Jackson State

The highly active rising senior shows quick hands getting off his blocks. Patterson is versatile playing inside and out. He is relentless in getting after the QB and consistently cleans up tackles from the backside.

Antwann Hill Jr.
2025 Houston Co.

Hill has one of the best arms in this recruiting class, putting the ball on a line that puts him in step with elite arm talents at the next level. Memphis will look to hone back his errors, and if so, they will have one of the most gifted arms in the country by the time he is ready to play.

Pherleski Martin
2025 Shiloh
Georgia State

Martin is a wide-shouldered offensive lineman with a lot of upside. He stands at 6’5″ 320 lbs and shows the potential to play across the line of scrimmage for Georgia State. His 385 lbs. bench press max is among the best we have seen this offseason.

Torian Chester
2025 Westover

Pittsburgh earns the commitment of one of the top blockers in the class of ’25 in the state. Chester has long arms, is a functional athlete with excellent body control and proficiencies as both a pass and run blocker.

Tommy Lafayette
2025 North Gwinnett

Lafayette is an ultra-versatile back who has the ability to catch a pass on the flat or run in between the tackles. Either way, he is moving the chains. Many Cardinal fans will be quick to compare Lafayette to Christian McCaffery, to which they certainly share many of the same qualities.

Kory Pettigrew
2025 Perry
South Florida

Pettigrew was the #2 receiver for the 4A champs in 2023 and is set to receive well over 1k yards this fall. The athletic upside of Pettigrew should excite the South Florida faithful; his 10’7″ broad jump is one of the best we have ever seen.

Sean Poret
2025 Riverwood
South Florida

The long-athletic offensive lineman out of Riverwood is dripping with potential. With the length and agility to become an excellent offensive tackle, Poret is the type of prospect South Florida will look to develop into a monster.

Ahmed Souare
2025 Loganville
Georgia State

One of the leading receivers during the 2023 season, Souare is a huge 6’3″ receiver who can go down the middle, high point the football then steamroll over the defensive backs. Georgia State could very well be getting the next Mohammad Sanu.

RJ Boyd
2025 Ware Co.
NC State

The 1k yard rusher out of Ware County is built like a brick wall at 6′ and 210 lbs. Do not let that fool you. Boyd can go the distance and broke off several long runs in 2023. This was a huge recruiting win for NC State earning Boyd’s commitment over in-state rival Duke.

Cal Faulkner
2025 Lumpkin Co.
Georgia Tech

GT is landing a commitment from one of the most versatile players in the state and a potential star X receiver at the next level. He was an All-State athlete selection in 3A last season. Faulkner threw for 1706 passing yards and 19 touchdowns while also rushing for 929 yards and 18 additional scores. Those are good dual-threat numbers, but then you realize Faulkner also put up 645 yards receiving, 9 more scores, and even several interceptions on defense for good measure.

Three ‘n Out

Milton SR QB Luke Nickle made the final cut of the Elite 11 on June 21. Nickel is the returning passing leader in the state and our 7A player of the year in 2023.

Hughes rising junior TE is getting ready for a big jump this upcoming season. While he showed a ton of promise as a sophomore, Tiller is continuing to fill out his 6’5″ frame and will be a matchup problem. Tiller is a national recruit with offers from Michigan, Alabama, Ole Miss, etc. and one of the top jumbo pass-catchers in the class of ’26.

Grayson junior QB Travis Burgess is on the camp circuit getting his name out there. The 6’5″ 2026 QB was behind one of the top passers in 7A in 2023, so he looking to make a name for himself this fall. With some of the fastest skill players at his disposal in the state, Burgess is set for a huge season in both the stat and win column. His recruiting stock should follow.
