Welcome to our Recruiting Recap where we talk up college prospects that have caught our attention over the last few days. Also be sure to take a look at our Power Rankings heading into Week 4.
Douglas County RB Uriah West was instrumental in his team’s upset win over Caver (Col.). The junior totaled 15 carries for 265 yards and two touchdowns. He was very impressive against Grayson this year in a scrimmage as well. Douglas County has been a surprise team in the state this year and West is a major reason why.
Mercer offered a pair of Creekside running backs yesterday in Rico Frye and Gino Appleberry Jr. The junior backs have both had outstanding starts to the year.
Mykel Tubbs looks to have fully recovered from his ACL injury from a year ago. The Class of ’18 prospect looks right at home at WR and SS/OLB. Tubbs showcases exceptional skill at high-pointing passes and incredible concentration to reel the ball in.
Towson and Mercer have both offered Antwon Kincade from Valdosta. The senior safety has received attention from several FBS and FCS programs over the last few months, including a May offer from Central Michigan. Kincade is a big hitter at his safety spot.
Brenton Cox is a hot name in the recruiting world. The junior is a new transfer from Miller Grove to Stockbridge and has garnered a ton of interest recently. Virginia Tech is the latest school to offer the dominant 6’5″, 230-pound DE. JUNIOR FILM
Harrison offensive tackle Trey Iorillo has been very impressive early on this year. He has gone up against FBS prospects in Rome’s Adam Anderson and North Cobb’s Thurman Geathers and has impressed. The senior Hoya currently has offers from Georgia State and Air Force, but if he continues to cave in the defensive line like he has in the last few weeks, his recruitment could change dramatically.
Jackson High School senior DL Jaquavious “Duke” Collins was offered by Marshall on September 6th. The Herd are his 14th offer after his recruitment has been relatively quiet since May. At one point during the spring evaluation period, he had a committable offer to UGA. The 6’3″, 265-pound lineman is very fast and could play SDE at the next level. JUNIOR FILM
Koby Perry is relatively new to football but is leading the charge in an Alcovy defense that is much stingier than it was last year. The 6’2″ senior safety prospect is quick to the ball and plays the game with reckless abandon. We would like to see him wrap up his tackles more, but his ability to cover a lot of area is impressive.
Southwest DeKalb senior QB Justin Tomlin received his first offer at the beginning of this month from Middle Tennessee. His offer was right on the heels of a big upset victory over Cedar Grove. Tomlin has started since his freshman year and shows a ton of composure in the pocket, making quick decisions. SENIOR FILM
Curtis Fann Jr. is a big-framed Class of 2019 prospect who will attract a lot of colleges before you know it. At 6’3″, 238 pounds, the sophomore from Emanuel County Institute is nearly impossible to block at the Class A level. The talented young lineman could easily gain another 30 pounds before leaving high school. In his last game against Portal, Fann caused three fumbles including one that became a safety. PORTAL FILM
Another player who has received a ton of interest over the last month is Athens Christian athlete Richard Jibunor. The 6’4″, 210-pound OLB/WR prospect ran a sub-4.5 at Auburn’s camp and was offered immediately after. Now Tulane, UNC, Iowa State and Tennessee have offered over the last few weeks in what looks like just the beginning of a laundry list of offers for the talented Class of ’18 prospect. JUNIOR FILM
Sabrian Howard, a senior from Forsyth Central, had a big game against River Ridge. The 5’11”, 205-pound running back was tough in between the tackles but also showed the vision to know when to bounce it back out. Howard runs through contact and keeps his legs pumping for extra yards. The senior prospect had 182 yards rushing and four TDs to cap off his dominating performance. RIVER RIDGE FILM
South Paulding senior wide receiver Cam Wyche was offered by Morehead State. The athletic senior has almost a 40″ vertical leap and is a solid route-runner.
A high-potential player who caught our eye was Jaxavier “Zay” Hicks from Houston County. The 6’5″, 180-pound sophomore DE/OLB will mostly get varsity reps in blowouts this year, but from an athletic-potential standpoint, the young student-athlete has “it.” He made a bone-crushing hit last weekend against Eagle’s Landing out in the flat that put the crowd on their feet and the would-be receiver to the turf. The Class of ’19 player also has a sack on the year against Peach County but has mostly been playing special teams. EAGLE’S LANDING FILM
