Deshaun Watson, the Gainesville quarterback who threw for more than 3,000 yards last season as a sophomore, leads GHSF Daily’s preseason all-state team in Class AAAAA. Watson has committed to Clemson.
Linebacker Elliott Berry of Creekside, is another blue-chip recruit in AAAA from the class of 2014. Berry is the younger brother of All-Pro NFL safety Eric Berry.
Also notable about the AAAAA team is the secondary. All four defensive backs have committed – Quincy Mauger to Georgia, Brendan Langley to South Carolina, Brandon Facyson to Virginia Tech and Darius Curry to Oklahoma State.
The player most likely to lead AAAAA in rushing might be a quarterback. Adam Choice surpassed 1,600 yards on the ground last year. He’s listed as the athlete on the team.
