SP Recruiting Expert Barry Every’s ranking of the Top 100 Class of 2021 prospects in South Georgia.

Major expansion takes place in Version 4.0 of the 2021 South Georgia Player Rankings. The rankings expand from a Top 70 to a Top 100 with 39 new names; each new name is designated with the acronym (NR) in the Last Ranking column.

Remember, this list is designed to help as many prospects from South Georgia get exposure to FCS and FBS colleges. We are doing our part to aid high school football players in receiving full ride scholarships. You will greatly help your own cause, of being recognized by college recruiters, by setting academic goals higher than a 2.5 GPA and a 820SAT.

There are currently 37 players currently ranked in the Top 100 with at least one FCS/FBS offer, 16 of those  players already have five or more scholarship offers. It should come as no surprise that mammoth Kingsland (Ga.) Camden County offensive tackle Micah Morris holds a whopping 22 offers. The #1-ranked prospect has offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU and Oregon.

Moving up to #2 in the South Georgia Player Rankings is Cochran (Ga.) Bleckley County offensive tackle Amarius Mims. Mims holds 17 offers which include the likes of Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, USC and Texas A&M.

Also trending upwards is Cordele (Ga.) Crisp County safety Sirad Bryant. This past season Bryant recorded 66 tackles and six INT’s in leading the Cougars to a GHSA-AAAA State Championship appearance. He also led the team in receiving with 29 receptions for 580 yards and two scores. Bryant currently has scholarship offers from Akron, Georgia Tech, Nebraska, Troy and West Virginia.

Rounding out the Top 5 is Leesburg (Ga.) wide out Chauncey Magwood and Fort Valley (Ga.) Peach County offensive lineman Terrence Ferguson. Magwood holds 14 offers while Ferguson boasts 18.

The highest new entry at #9 belongs to Rochelle (Ga.) Wilcox County outside linebacker Martez Thrower. Thrower was part of a defensive unit that threw three shutouts in 2019 while leading his team to a (9-3) record. He currently holds offers from Georgia Tech, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Tennessee and Troy.

Coming in at #23 is Valdosta (Ga.) receiver Javonte Sherman. With the loss of Jaheim Bell, to a season ending knee injury, Sherman was able to step up into the #1 receiver spot for the Wildcats. He did not disappoint catching 53 passes for 1,156 yards and 17 touchdowns. His hard work has paid off with offers from Akron, Coastal Carolina, Florida Atlantic, Troy and Western Kentucky.

Making their entrees at #24 and #25 are the Seabrough twins of Swainsboro (Ga.). Fredrick caught 37 passes for 703 yards and eight touchdowns while recording 37 tackles and one INT on the defensive side of the ball. Cedric hauled in 58 passes for 800 yards and 13 touchdowns for the Tigers. The pair of giant hybrid receivers earned an offer from North Carolina State.

Pass rushing specialist Thomas Davis of Valdosta (Ga.) Lowndes comes in at #27. As a junior Davis recorded 47 tackles, 16.5 TFL’s and 11.5 sacks in leading the Vikings to an appearance in the GHSA-AAAAAAA State Championship Game.

Speedy running back/return specialist Tay Solomon of Cairo (Ga.) makes his entry at #33. Solomon carried the ball 104 times for 676 yards and ten scores. He also caught 19 passes for 259 yards and a touchdown while returning 13 kicks for 447 yards.

One of the most dynamic two-way players in the Peach State this last season was Gabriel Benyard of Ocilla (Ga.) Irwin County.  Benyard was a driving force in leading the Indians to a perfect (13-0) mark and a GHSA-A (Public) Championship.  Offensively he carried the ball 52 times for 790 yards and eight touchdowns while catching 17 passes for 291 yards and two scores. Defensively he recorded 25 tackles while picking off five passes. Benyard comes in at #35.

Brunswick (Ga.) offensive lineman Caleb Cook makes his entry at #37. Cook was named First Team All-Region; He also sports a 3.8 GPA and a 23 on the ACT.  The athletic bruiser most likely projects as an offensive guard at the next level.

Coming in at #39 is Moultrie (Ga.) Colquitt County corner Omar Daniels. Daniels recorded 36 tackles, three TFL’s, four PBU’s and one INT for the Packers. Daniels’ size lends itself to projecting as a big physical corner or a safety at the next level.

Rounding out the Top 10 new entries is Butler (Ga.) Taylor County two-way standout Braylon Jowers.  In just eight games Jowers caught 15 passes for 460 yards and seven scores while carrying the ball 12 times for 81 yards and two scores. Defensively this long and lean corner recorded 22 tackles and four INT’s.

The next version of the rankings will come out sometime before the Spring Evaluation period which begins April 15th.
