Recruiting Recap 8/10 – 8/14

It was a very quiet week on the recruiting front in the state of Georgia. From what we can collect (via Twitter) very few offers were made and there were almost no commitments. This means it’s officially football season, and until games kick off, recruiting is absolutely second fiddle for colleges and high schools alike. A few weeks back we were reporting multiple offers and commitments a day, but those days are gone for the time being.

Running back Kurt Taylor notified us late Monday night that Indiana offered. Another note is that already more than 200 people have viewed his profile in about nine days.

Six-foot-three wide receiver Mychal Tubbs made a nice adjustment on this sideline catch last weekend. He is a class of 2018 athlete who is sure to have an impressive upcoming season if he makes more plays similar to last week’s scrimmage.

Current Louisville commit and Peachtree Ridge running back Malik Staples excitedly tweeted out his ambitions to go across the country for a visit to Oregon State:



Both Oregon State and Louisville were early offers for Staples, and the Beavers have continued to recruit Malik hard, even after his summer Louisville commitment. It will be interesting to see how his visit to Corvallis might change his recruitment.

Craig Sager Jr. tweeted on August 11 the official lineup for the Corky Kell Classic.  



Joshua Tolbert from Lithia Springs is a middle linebacker who could really impress this fall. He’s only 5’11”, but you can watch his strength HERE where he busts out 500-pound squat.

Jarel Rowe, Carrollton WR, made his commitment to Middle Tennessee on August 10. Jarel is a high-ceiling prospect with great size at 6’5″. The Blue Raiders landed a good vertical-threat receiver who does a good job of adjusting his route while the football is mid-flight to make an acrobatic catch. His size will continue to be an advantage in college at Middle Tennessee. If his body fills out he could be a real playmaker for the Blue Raiders. The following day, Rowe announced that he will be playing for the North side in the GHSA All-Star Game.



The AJC came out with its preseason rankings for Class AAAAAA on August 12. They have since done Class AAAAA and AAAA. Hard to argue against their picks, but Christian Roberson from McEachern appears to be missing at TE.

Norcross just installed the largest high school scoreboard in the country on August 10.

Rutgers commit Alex Barbir was announced to be the state’s top kicker according to the AJC. Barbir has a boot and kicked a 71-yard kick this summer

Speaking of kickers with strong legs, Jonathan Cruz from Cartersville High School has a boot. He is only a class of 2018 kicker but consistently kicks from 50 yards deep with good height.




Class of 2016 wide receiver Joshua Moran got his official offers from West Virginia and California. More schools might become interested in the athlete from Milton with another good fall expected.

Scrimmage weekend is here. Over 200 scrimmages will be taking place across the state, and we look forward to recapping everything we see. We are hopeful that high schools, coaches and players will help us stay up to date with everything tonight by tagging us with their most recent updates on Twitter using @RecruitGeorgia. We will retweet your update, and it could be used in our next story, which will highlight the top performers from scrimmage weekend.

Be sure to send us stats, pictures and HUDL film. Good luck tonight!


Roswell is excited about the season to start!
