(This is part of the AJC’s “30 in 30″ series — with quick hits on top high school football teams across the metro area and state during spring football practice. We’re doing 30 football teams in 30 days. Click here for a master list. Hey AJC, what about spring sports? You know, the non-football sports? Go here)
Central Gwinnett has two of the metro area’s top college prospects with tailback George Morris and linebacker Trey Johnson, a rising junior who finished with 152 tackles and 7.5 sacks last season. Quarterback Emmanuel Westmoreland threw for 2,800 yards and 28 TDs last year.
Malachi Jones is a newcomer expected to have an impact at WR. Said Wofford, “I feel like Jones can be a very productive player in our system. He has ideal size and speed, and is a smart player.” His older brother Tai-ler Jones plays at Notre Dame.
Charles King started some at DB last year as a freshman. “He is a very aggressive player with good speed and a nose for the football.”
