A look at the top recruits from this past Friday.

Lowndes (9-0)

Mike Barrett, 6-0/210, QB (2018) – The most dynamic player in the Peach State did not disappoint. Barrett completed nine of 13 passes for 246 yards and three scores in just two and a half quarters of play. He also added 140 yards rushing and two scores on just eight carries in the huge road victory at Kingsland (Ga.) Camden County. On the hoof, Barrett looks like a huge running back or inside linebacker. But make no mistake this young man runs the read option attack with precision. His biggest asset is his ability to break simple arm tackles and make yards after contact. He does have excellent arm strength. Barrett has more than 15 FBS offers, but has yet to make his college choice known.

Jalen Goss, 6-7/260, OT (2018) – Goss is easily the tallest offensive line prospect in all of South Georgia, he is also one of the most nimble left offensive prospects in the Peach State. His length is his biggest asset as he used his long arms and quick feet to redirect pass rushers in this game. Though he looks a bit awkward in his stance; he displayed incredible lateral movement on trap plays. His frame will hold another 30 to 40 pounds of muscle mass making him one of the most sought after lineman in the country. The one-time Gator commit currently has 20 FBS offers, and at this time it looks like he will be heading out-of-state.

Tayvonn Kyle, 6-0/165, WR (2018) – Though slight in stature, Kyle is chalked full of quick twitch muscle fiber and incredible ball skills. He has serious hops and very good body control, which allows him to beat defenders to the ball. Kyle is a smooth route runner that does a great job of selling his routes with solid plant foot. Versus the Wildcats he caught five passes for 129 yards and two scores. Kyle has reached the double digit mark in FBS offers with Cincinnati and West Virginia being the most aggressive in pursuing his services. He could play the slot, but has the ability to stretch the field.

Travis Tisdale, 5-10/175, APB/ATH (2019) – All the talk in Valdosta is about Barrett, and it is well deserved, but Tisdale may be the most explosive player I’ve seen this season. On the night he caught four passes for 114 yards and one score. He also carried the ball six times for 57 yards and a touchdown. Though he is the leading rusher for the Vikings, he may better project as a slot receiver and kick returner. Tisdale has excellent ball skills and more wiggle than a dancing cobra. His top end speed is astonishing as he can pull away from defenders in a blink of an eye. He currently has offers from Cincinnati, LSU, Ole Miss and West Virginia.

Camden County (3-5)

Logan Berryhill, 6-3/180, WR (2019) – Berryhill had the lone touchdown for the Wildcats, a 53-yard strike where he was able to use his long-striders speed to get behind the defense. On the evening he hauled in five passes for 86 yards. His length and top end speed are what should make him attractive to college recruiters. He is simply a mismatch for smaller defensive backs. Right now his is a tad on the thin side, so adding muscle mass will be pivotal to his development as a legitimate FBS prospect. The Cats have a bunch of good looking prospects, but Berryhill may be the top 2019 recruit on the team.

Jeremiah Compton, 6-0/185, S (2018) – He came into the contest as the top tackler for the Wildcats, and again impressed with his affinity for contact. He finished the contest with seven tackles and a 30-yard reception. Compton has a great frame and could easily play at 200-pounds in college. He possesses good lateral movement and the speed to track down plays run away from him. It is his willingness to come up in run support that separates him from his peers. Coming into this month, Compton had received offers from Army and Navy along with a plethora of FCS suitors. His stock continues to rise picking up scholarship offers from Furman and Western Carolina in the last two weeks. He should be attractive to college recruiters - with a 1,040 on the SAT.

Jakaree Gadsden, 6-1, 190, ATH (2018) – Speaking of dynamic players, Gadsden may be the best overall athlete on the Camden County squad. Despite wearing a knee brace from the injury that occurred earlier this season, Gadsden proved to be an offensive weapon for the Wildcats. He caught six passes for 64 yards and ran the ball five times for an additional 66 yards. On one running play near the sideline Gadsden completely hurdled a Viking defender. His size and skill set allow him to project at several skilled positions at the next level. He has excellent ball skills and good top end speed. This is a guy I implore college recruiters to check out ASAP.

Sleeper: Desmond Fogle, 6-2/200, OLB (2020) – Fogle won’t be a sleeper much longer. Coming into this matchup he was second in tackles while leading the Wildcats in sacks and TFL’s. Unofficially he finished this game with nine tackles. Fogle is an impressive looking prospect on the hoof. He possesses excellent length and a frame that can easily house another 25-pounds of muscle mass. He can drop in coverage and chase plays sideline to sideline. He is at his best when attacking the ball near, or behind, the line of scrimmage. I highly recommend that college coaches put this young man on their recruiting lists.
