Duke Watson
2024 Mary Persons

No, this isn’t a typo or repeat on the recap, but just us highlighting the exciting 2024 running back. Last week, he earned offers from Georgia Tech and Marshall. That gives the exciting back a total of 5 offers now with Memphis, Georgia Southern and Liberty offering around the end of last season. The early interest comes without much explanation, Watson rushed for 1700 yards his sophomore year and had a total of 25 touchdowns on the ground too. At 6′ and 185 lbs. Watson has proven to have good natural instincts reading the field, but it’s this offseason where he has also shown his upside as a receiver. Watson made one of the top catches we have seen during the offseason at a 7v7 at Georgia Tech in June, and a few weeks later the Jackets offered. We have a feeling when more P5 programs get Watson up close and personal they will also like his upside, so be sure to keep tabs on the 2024 back as he is set up for another outstanding year running the football.

Sleeper of the Day

Cameron Wallace
2023 Montgomery Co.

Wallace played on a talented Montgomery County team last year that spread the football around to an array of athletes, but the 2023 playmaker made the most of those opportunities grabbing 1200 all-purpose yards while also making an impact on defense with 84 tackles. The speedy senior posted a 10.5 100m this offseason and has proven to be one of the fastest players in the state of Georgia, but still flies under the radar with only local offers to date. Wallace is all but guaranteed for a big senior year playing all over the field for Montgomery County. His explosive speed can split a defense and he shows an excellent change of direction and reactions to get around defenders. Wallace’s impact on offense will be easy to identify this fall, he is set for an All-State caliber season, but it’s on defense where we think his speed and physicality to have the greatest upside. Though his defensive skill set is raw, Wallace has all of the physical tools to excel at defensive back and we absolutely love his hustle and closing speed. Wallace is one of those guys with no-doubt FBS athleticism in our opinion and colleges need to take a second look here and figure out where he fits best at the next level because he can have an impact.
