Recruiting Recap 8/26 – 9/1

McEachern offensive tackle Tremayne Anchrum received an offer from local school Georgia Tech on Aug. 27. Over the summer, Tremayne received a ton of interest from FBS schools, including UGA, Missouri and Clemson. Recruit Georgia had a chance to watch him during the Corky Kell Classic, and he was one of the most impressive offensive linemen we saw over the weekend. Anchrum is one of the most fundamentally sound offensive lineman in the state and is a very good athlete, as well. With so many schools offering Anchrum before the Yellow Jackets, it’ll be interesting to see how much this offer will impact his recruitment. Could this be the making of a UGA/Tech recruiting battle?

Christopher Brinson, a 2016 RB from Houston County, had a big game last week vs Veterans HS. Brinson shows a knack for breaking tackles in tight spaces but also the ability to burn defenders with his speed. He worked very hard this offseason, attending a lot of football camps and 7 v 7 tournaments. He has yet to receive an offer, but with more games similar to last weekend, he’ll be grabbing the attention of coaches sooner more than later. Watch film HERE.

Jonesboro defensive tackles Kali James and Kannon Banks played big in the upset victory over previously top five-ranked Sandy Creek HS. Jonesboro and the 2016 defensive tackle duo were overlooked heading into this season, but after upsetting a consistent state power, some heads have surely been turned. Watch Kali’s film VS. Sandy Creek HERE and Kannon Banks vs Mt. Zion (Jonesboro) HERE.

Hajj-Malik Williams (2018 Lovejoy QB) started off slow in his first varsity start against Mundy’s Mill but made a great comeback effort in the fourth quarter to give Lovejoy the 22-20 win.

 

 

Valdosta High School had 560 yards of total offense during its destruction of Thomas County Central. Top performer was Seth Shuman, who threw for 370 yards and four touchdowns and had one rushing TD. Shuman was rated the #2 Highlight from last weekend. He is very comfortable moving around in the pocket and shows a nice touch on his passes.

Extremely impressed with class of 2019 prospect Jashawn Sheffield in his first varsity start last Friday. The Frederica Academy freshman shows tremendous big-play ability and very good speed, especially on jet sweeps. Watch his first varsity film HERE.

North Gwinnett’s new starter at quarterback, Cade Fortin, is already getting attention nationally. The California Golden Bears were the first to offer the talented sophomore QB on Aug. 31. Just the beginning of what will soon be a long list of offers for the Suwanee native.

 

 

One of the state’s top running backs, Elijah Holyfield, announced on Twitter that he will be making his commitment on Friday at 12 p.m. in the gym at Woodward Academy. He’s already a silent commit but has made sure to keep things relatively quiet on where he might go. He will be choosing between Georgia, Tennessee, Auburn, South Carolina and Alabama.

Etowah’s junior safety Stuart Head was offered by Stanford and Georgia Tech on consecutive days. Stuart has visited the Yellow Jackets plenty over the last year and is good friends with Tech true freshmen Scott and Brad Morgan (former Etowah teammates). He also holds offers from Duke, Clemson and California among others.

Quintarius Neely, one of the top dual-threat QB’s in the state, has some really impressive recent film. Neely is extremely dangerous on his feet, making defenders whiff as he knifes his way through the heart of the defense. He also displays a good arm and timing with his passes. His ability to beat teams with his feet and arm has made Roswell HS a real contender in Class AAAAAA. Neely currently holds offers from Alcorn State, Lenoir-Rhyne and Army.

William Poole III was offered by The Ohio State University on Sept. 1. They had a really cool Sports Illustrated graphic that they sent out to their top 2017 recruits.  

 

 

Class of 2017 running back Will Thomas ran for 174 yards on nine carries last Friday night (watch film HERE). The following week, the Commerce HS junior received his first FBS letter from Duke University.

Aubrey Solomon, Lee County’s 4-star class of 2017 defensive tackle, said on Twitter that he will be attending UGA’s game this Saturday.

Georgia Southern landed the commitment of the very athletic Tyler Johnson from Stephenson HS. He’s 6’5″, 265 pounds and runs a reported 4.8 40. The Georgia Southern recruiting class is very impressive for a Sun Belt school, and Johnson looks ideal at the offensive tackle spot for the nation’s leading rushing attack (384 yards per game) last season.
