Random Stuff
Archer, McEachern loaded with prospects
It's how many games you win, and not how many college coaches come watch your games, but the two have some correlation. Here are the 10 teams we think have the most high-profile college recruits on their rosters. The ratings listed are from Rivals.com.
 
1. Archer: The Tigers are ranked No. 1 in Class AAAAAA and in the top 25 nationally in six polls for tangible reasons. This is a team shimmering with seven major Division I players -  LB Donta Evans (committed to Ole Miss), OT E.J. Price (4-star), WR Kyle Davis (4-star), DB Dylan Singleton (Duke), DT Kobe Smith (Kentucky), DB Isaiah Pryor (Ohio State) and RB/DB Jamyest Williams (4-star). Price and Davis are rated among the best 10 senior prospects in the state.
 
2. McEachern: Perhaps it should be 1A and 1B. McEachern's top senior prospects are DT Julian Rochester (Georgia), TE Christian Roberson (Mississippi State), DT Andrew Tarver (Florida International), WR C.J. Windham (Middle Tennessee), RB Sam Jackson (Georgia Southern), WR Tyler Simmons (3-star) and OL Tremayne Anchrum (3-star). Those are the seniors. Juniors include QB Bailey Hockman (Georgia), WR Tyler Smith (4-star) and DB Jaytlin Askew (3-star).
 
3. Grayson: The Rams have the most highly recruited defensive line in the state. DE Bryce Morais (Boston College), DT Chris Martin (Georgia Tech) and DE Mykelle McDaniel (Florida, Georgia and South Carolina lead) are all big recruits. TE Ryan Carrierre (Charlotte) is one of four two-star recruits. Junior QB Chase Brice might become the biggest recruit of all. Rivals rates him the No. 6 pro-style QB nationally in the class of 2017.
 
4. Peachtree Ridge: The Lions will have at least four major D-I signees in February. Committed are DB Baylen Buchanan (Louisville), DB Chad Clay (Georgia) and RB Malik Staples (Louisville). DB Nigel Warrior (4-star) is the highest-rated recruit on the team. A similar class is coming behind it. DB DeAngelo Gibbs is Rivals' No. 1 safety nationally among juniors. LB Breon Dixon is a 4-star player. LB Kam Jones and ATH Connor Heyward are 3-stars.
 
5. Woodward Academy: AJC Super 11 RB Elijah Holyfield (4-star) leads a group of four certain D-I seniors. The others are DB Antone Williams (Duke), LB Max Richardson (Boston College) and WR Jacob Robertson (3-star). Juniors WR Josh Johnson and ATH J.R. Pace also are 3-stars.
 
6. Mays: WR Randrecous Davis (Georgia) leads a group of five committed Mays players. The others are CB Monquavion Brinson (Syracuse), MLB Tobias Little (Missouri), OLB Myles Reid (Miami of Ohio) and DT Marquez Daniel (Army). WR Corey Reed and WR Norman Price are 3-star juniors.
 
7. Carver (Columbus): QB Jawon Pass (Louisville) leads a senior class of three top recruits. The others are DB Javontay Smith (North Carolina) and DT T.J. London (Louisville, N.C. State offers). Junior LB Giovannia Moore reportedly favors Alabama, Florida State and Ohio State.
 
8. Calhoun: TE Landon Rice (Auburn) and OL Jack DeFoor (Ole Miss) are committed to SEC schools. Junior DB Baylon Spector (Clemson) is the third high-profile senior. Two-star recruits include QB Kaelan Riley (Mercer), OL Kenny Cooper (Western Kentucky) and OL Drew McEntyre (Army, Navy offers).
 
9. Buford - The Wolves have three major Division I recruits. That's very good for Class AAAA, but a far cry from the 2014 team, which put eight players into major Division I schools and five others into mid-majors. The current senior class includes ATH Xaier Gantt (Georgia Tech), DT Shug Frazier and ATH Brett Shepherd (both 3-stars). LB William Dale Craig (2-star) is committed to Middle Tennessee. There are two other 2-star recruits.
 
10. Roswell - Linebackers Tre Lamar (Clemson) and Tyrone Hopper (North Carolina) are committed. OL Cameron Whiteman (Harvard), QB Quintarius Neely and DB Marcelino Ball are 2-stars. Among juniors, DB LeAnthony Williams (Auburn leads) is a 4-star, and DB Xavier McKinney (Alabama offer) is a 3-star.
 
Others worth noting ...
Carrollton has DE Michael Boykin (Louisville) and junior OL Case Cook (ACC, SEC offers) and five others are 2-stars or more. ...Colquitt County has one major D-I prospect. That's Ja'Quain Blakely (Tennessee). Three others - WR Kiel Pollard, WR Qwazavia Lee and LB Dee Walker - are 3-stars that could work themselves into that position. DB Rakeem Hightower is rated a 2-star. ... Houston County WR Darion Anderson is committed to Georgia, and junior QB Jake Fromm is a 4-star recruit. ... Lanier's senior class is led by DT Derrick Brown, the No. 1 recruit in the state, and three 2-stars. The junior class has 3-stars LB Juwuan Jones, LB Tyler Taylor and DE Michael Allen. ... At Lee County, OL Chris Barnes (Georgia), QB Garet Morrell (Marshall) and DB William Bryant (Arkansas State) are committed, but the Trojans' top recruit is junior DT Aubrey Soloman, Rivals' No. 3 defensive tackle in the class of 2017.  ... Newton has a slew of 2-star recruits. Committed are DB Jacobi Francis (Memphis), WR DeAndre Huff (Miami, Ohio) and DB Tay Gowan (Miami of Ohio). Two juniors - RB Kurt Taylor and LB Jaquan Henderson - are 3-stars. ... North Gwinnett has WR Josh Imatorbhebhe (Southern Cal) and five 2-stars. Three are committed - RB Kameron Pickett (Miami of Ohio), OL Alex Mollette (Marshall) and WR K.J. Hancock (Miami of Ohio). Two juniors - OL Chris Sibilia and LB Drew Jordan - are 3-stars. ... Two Pace Academy juniors - WR Trey Blount and OL Andrew Thomas - are 4-stars. DE Anthony Trinh (Princeton) and OL Timothy Coleman () are seniors. ... Stephenson TE Dennis Wonnum is committed to Iowa State, and DE Michael Pitts is going to Cincinnati. Juniors DE Aaron Sterling and DB Carlito Gonzalez (Auburn) are 3-stars. ...Tucker features LB Tabarius Peterson (Louisville) and DE Cecil Stallings (South Carolina), plus 3-star junior LB Brian Stozier. ATH Akeam Peters and QB Garrett Ribgy (Harvard) are 2-stars. ... Westlake senior DB Ronnie Blackmon (Colorado) and juniors LB Jaden Hunter (4-stars) and WR A.J. Terrell (3-stars) are certain D-I players. Westlake has three other 2-stars.
 
Chick-Fil-A Battle of the Borders
Stephenson has more alumni in college football than any other Georgia high school. The number was 57 in 2014. So it will be unusual Saturday when the Jaguars play a team with far more blue-chip prospects.
 
American Heritage, the defending Florida Class 5A champion, has five players who are rated 4-star recruits by Rivals.com. One is Brian Burns, a defensive end high on Georgia's wish list.
 
Stephenson, in what coach Ron Gartrell calls a rebuilding year, has only two sure-fire Division I recruits, and neither is a 4-star.
 
"It's different for us," Gartrell said. "It started off last year when we played Miami Central [and lost 22-21 to the eventual Florida 6A champion]. They were loaded at every position. We come back this year and American Heritage is like a small college team."
 
The other teams playing in Saturday's four-game Chick-Fil-A Battle of the Borders at Hallford Stadium will have similar blue-chip disadvantages.
 
Hallandale, ranked No. 2 in Florida's 5A, has eight players committed to Division I schools. Hallandale will play Cedar Grove, ranked No. 6 in Georgia's Class AAA. Cedar Grove defensive tackle Antwuan Jackson and linebacker Elysee Mbem-Bosse are the only Rivals 4-stars playing among Georgia's four teams.
 
In the other games, unranked Tucker plays Godby, ranked No. 4 in Florida's 5A, and fifth-ranked Marist of AAAA plays Coconut Creek, ranked No. 13 in Florida 5A.
 
Marist's 17-14 victory over Godby was Georgia's only victory in the 2014 event.
 
Schedule
Saturday at Hallford Stadium, Clarkston
11:45 a.m. - Coconut Creek vs. Marist

Stadiums honor Godfrey, Welsh
Two old stadiums are getting new names this season. DeKalb County's Panthersville Stadium will be named William "Buck" Godfrey Stadium in honor of the retired Southwest DeKalb coach whose record of 273-89-1 made him the winningest coach in DeKalb schools history. In Thomson, Luther Welsh Field at the Brickyard will be dedicated formally on Sept. 18. Welsh won 323 games in Georgia and state titles at Thomson in 1984, 1985 and 2002.

Student-Athlete Of The Week Presented ByscoutSMART
Cameron Whiteman, Roswell
1Roswell OL Cameron Whiteman is this week's scoutSMART Student-Athlete of the Week. Whiteman is a three-year starter who has been chosen to play in the Rising Senior Bowl all-star game. Whiteman participates in his school's student-athlete leadership team and Beta Club. He has a 4.0 GPA and scored 34 on the ACT and a 2140 on the SAT. He has participated in mission trips to Honduras and South Africa. Whiteman recently committed to Harvard. "I could not have a higher opinion of someone than I do Cameron," Roswell coach John Ford said. "He exemplifies 'student-athlete' all the way. His academic record is sterling, and he is one of the best offensive linemen in Georgia, turning down other offers to commit to Harvard."
 
GHSF Daily in conjunction with scoutSMART will be announcing a football student-athlete of the week each Friday this season. The ideal candidate will be outstanding on the field and in the classroom. Please send nominations to Diane Bloodworth atdbloodworth@competitivesportsanalysis.com. A statewide all-academic team will be selected by scoutSMART at the end of the year.

Four Questions Presented By GHS Scoreboard Show
1
GHSF Daily asked Georgia head coaches to answer these four questions. We'll report from a different head coach each day.
 
Ken Cofer, Bacon County
1. What is the most memorable game you've been a part of as a player or coach? "In my first game as head coach at Cook High School, we had to play No. 19 in the nation Colquitt County in Moultrie. We managed to pull off a 15-9 win, and it fueled us for the rest of the year."
 
2. Which high school coach would you want your son to play for, and why? "The same guy I played for in high school, coach Ken Phillips. He was a second father to all of us, and he was always doing something crazy to lighten the mood at practice." [Phillips was an assistant coach at the time at Cofer's alma mater, Paulding County.]
 
3. What is your pet peeve as a coach or favorite saying/motto? "Kids having all kinds of God-given talent and never using all of it, or throwing it all away to hit the streets. Happens all the time. Motto: 'It doesn't take Talent to Hustle.'"
 
4. Which GHSA policy or high school football rule would you most like to see changed? "Leveling the playing field as much as possible. Not so sure that's not about to happen."
 
The Georgia High School Scoreboard Radio Show presented by Georgia Farm Bureau Insurance airs on Friday nights from 10 to midnight, delivering scores and game reports from play-by-play teams throughout the state.

Top long-snappers
Long-snappers are getting almost as many scholarships out of high school as place-kickers and punters these days, but they rarely get attention. They're almost never listed on all-region or all-state teams. GHSF Daily would like to recognize some of the state's best this year. Here are Georgia's top 10 long-snappers, according to Chris Rubio, owner of Rubio Long Snapping out of Lewiston, Idaho.
 Answer to Thursday's question: Buford holds the state record for consecutive wins with 47, set from 2001 to 2004.

Trivia Presented by
Scholarship Game Plan

Mays coach Corey Jarvis was surprised to learn this week that his team was ranked No. 1 by GPB. "We are not that good yet," Jarvis said. "Doubt if anyone noticed it. Praying anyway." But it should not be surprising. Mays was the Class AAAAA runner-up last season, and one of four AAAAA teams that got No. 1 rankings from at least one poll last week. Which other three teams were ranked No. 1? (Answer Monday)
