Welcome to another edition of the Recruiting Recap! Thanks for stopping by, and if you are new here, this is a feature where we sum up yesterday’s offers and commitments, which in this case, all the weekend’s starting on Friday.
With the football games fully underway now in the state, there has already been a solid flurry of offers blanketed across the state, so we’ll do our best to keep our accuracy to the best of our abilities! There is also a heating up feature and sleeper of the day, so be sure to check those out down below! We will continue to keep up this feature throughout the season and beyond, so tell a friend and share it across your social media’s.
Outside of that, I hope everyone is doing well. We had a top play vote end last night, take a look at the top 10 – HERE! There will be three featured stories from the top play vote coming up here. I’m going to go thru my weekend predictions later this afternoon too, so let’s see how I ended up in Week 1. Last but not least, we are still working on team pages, so stay tuned in the coming days. Also, we are continuing to make senior your profiles, so be on the lookout tonight! – David

Both GT and Arkansas offered Thursday night following his 12 reception 215 yard and three touchdown performance where the Brookwood junior came up clutch late with some clutch scores. Now over the weekend even more P5’s have offered. Penn State, South Carolina, Alabama, Oregon, Minnesota and UGA have all jumped on board. It’s not like Morrissette was not a national recruit before Thursday night’s Corky Kell game, but his performance did solidify him as one of the best receivers in the country. Morrissette has elite ball skills, no doubt, but where he truly impressed the most is his ability to make defenders miss after the catch, and always churning his legs after contact. His relentless run style earned him two of those touchdowns, and his impressive top end speed housed a routine slant pass. I said it on Thursday night while watching the 4 OT thriller, Morrissette is one of the best receivers we have seen in Georgia over the last 5 years. This young man is special.
Sleeper of the Day
2021 Brooks Co.
Baker is a wiry prospect who got starters reps as a sophomore, and continued to improve into this junior year. Now that he is in his senior year, he’s starting to turn the corner I think and first game of the year he started off with 3 sacks. Got to see him live at the state title game against Dublin as a junior, and first part that stands out about Baker is his lateral quickness. Very little doubt he plays hoops. He has long arms and does a nice job scraping off blocks. Baker has solid leverage due ot length and he has an above average motor getting into the backfield. The 2021 recruit got into the backfield a number of times where he made sacks just pursuing the QB like crazy. Good acceleration to the ball carrier. Baker has his hand in the ground at all times, and though he shows a natural skill set rushing the passer – he will have to play linebacker at the next level. He does look like a legit 6’1″. Plus considering his lateral quickness and ability to shed blocks, there is good upside for him to play OLB at the next level. Baker was probably 180 lbs. as a junior, and going into senior year he measured at 200 lbs. That’s a solid leap over the next year, and couple his athleticism, and we think D1 programs should have him all over their radar.
