Jalen Holston, a 2017 running back from Stockbridge, was invited to the Elite Junior Classic. Holston reportedly received offers from Florida and Charlotte this offseason. He has a fantastic blend of power and speed and is ready for a big season this fall. Expect Holston to garner additional interest from Power 5 conferences as the season progresses.
Talented junior QB Jake Fromm visited Alabama this Saturday. Fromm is one of the top quarterbacks in the state and plays for Recruit Georgia’s preseason #2 Houston County. Fromm can really spin it, and you can see why some of the best programs in the country are after him after watching his film.
Duke landed a big commitment from Archer’s two-way athlete Dylan Singleton. Singleton does a little bit of everything for Archer. At defensive back, he is a very sure tackler who is capable of laying people out. On offense, he is a talented runner who plays all over the field for Archer. Singleton has a very good running stride and changes direction with ease while maintaining sprinting speed. What really stands out is his ability to set up his blockers well, making him a dynamic return man. Singleton had many offers, including Georgia, but it was his relationships with the Duke coaching staff and his brother, a former Duke player, that swung his services to Durham.
Lanier defensive tackle Derrick Brown had a massive game last Friday. It was reported on Twitter that he had close to 20 tackles.
Tony “Duke” Gray, a 2017 left tackle from Central Gwinnett with offers from powerhouse schools LSU and Ohio State, among many others, visited Kentucky with his teammates on Friday.

Northside-Warner Robins almost started the season off with a loss when it was down 24-0 at halftime to North Cobb. Fast forward to the final moments of the the 4th quarter, and Northside’s 2017 quarterback Tobias Oliver threw a game-winning touchdown pass as time expired. Oliver played QB all last year for Northside, leading them to a state championship in a very competitive game against Mays.
Colby Woods is a class of 2018 running back for Jefferson who played impressively against Rabun County. He ran for 260 yards and three touchdowns and broke multiple tackle attempts from 4-star athlete Charlie Woerner. On defense, he matched up at corner with Woerner, who had only four catches for around 40 yards. Colby is a prospect to keep an eye on and had the No. 6 highlight in our Week 1 Sunday Night Highlights.
Another player who stood out during the Corky Kell Classic was Georgia Southern commit Sam Jackson from McEachern. He is perfect for any spread offense and has some serious wheels. In just a little over a quarter of play, Jackson ran for 162 yards and three touchdowns. He is an explosive player who consistently had Tucker defenders diving and coming up with faces full of artificial turf.
Jefferson High School’s Joseph Randolph received an offer from the Furman Paladins.
David Moore received his 21st offer, from Nevada. A lot of schools are continuing to show interest in the SMU commit. Since his commitment, Syracuse, South Florida and others have offered the talented dual-threat QB from Milton.
Westlake’s 2017 wide receiver AJ Terrell returned a kickoff for 94 yards and had a long reception over tight coverage in Friday’s game. He displays good size at 6’2″ and was impressive at camps this offseason. Watch his film HERE.
Dee Griffin’s film from MLK also caught our eye. He is a 2016 linebacker/safety hybrid who really flies around on his film. Watch it HERE.
An elite 2017 quarterback, Chase Brice, visited the Clemson Tigers over the weekend. Clemson is heavily recruiting the talented signal caller from Grayson, and they look to be an early favorite. They will have to beat out pass-happy California, Mike Bobo-led Colorado State (his first offer) and Power 5 suitors, who are sure to offer this fall.
