List/Trivia/Quote: Georgia’s top 10 prospects


These are the top 10 college prospects in Georgia, according to 247Sports’ Composite Rankings:

1. DE Lorenzo Carter, Norcross

2. LB Raekwon McMillan, Liberty County

3. RB Nick Chubb, Cedartown

4. CB Kalvaraz Bessent, Camden County

5. QB Deshaun Watson, Gainesville

6. QB Malkom Parrish, Brooks County

7. DT Elisha Shaw, Tucker

8. DT Dontavius Russell, Carrollton

9. S Cortez McDowell, Locust Grove

10. DE Dante Sawyer, North Gwinnett


Six Georgia schools have won at least 10 consecutive region championships. Which schools are they? Hint: The seasons are 1982-98; 2001-12 (two schools); 1959-68; 1980-89; and 1988-98. (Answer Monday)

Answer to Thursday’s question: Before T. McFerrin of Jefferson in 2012, Fred Shaver of Southeast Bulloch had been the last Georgia head coach to retire after winning a state championship. Wright Bazemore of Valdosta also famously retired after his final championship season in 1971. Bill Corry retired after leading Morgan County to its fourth state title in his seven seasons in 1962. Others, such as David Kelly (1993 Dunwoody) and Joe Robinson (1978 Westminster), have gone into college coaching, never to return to high school football.


“Champions aren’t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them – a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the late-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the SKILL and the WILL. But the WILL must be stronger than the skill.” (Muhammad Ali)

- Arabia Mountain coach Stanley Pritchett

These 247Sports donkeys have it wrong just like the AJC generally does. Watson is without a doubt the best college “PROSPECT” based on his high school accomplishments…not the Elite 11, Nike Sparq or any other summer camp that has their own agenda. Barring injury, this kid will shatter every significant Ga high school passing record on a team that has no other D1 prospects! Every player in this top 10 has earned the right to be there, but Watson is the clear #1. He will be the best college player out of the group, and if you want to extrapolate, the best professional prospect. Again, barring injury IMO he will be making a trip to New York as a Heisman finalist during his collegiate career. By the way, YardDawg, you are a moron. Stop dating your cousin, quit filing disability claims for erectile dysfunction and get your GED! One more thing, pro wrestling is not real.

Hey Truth, that was good. Made me laugh at the end. From the beginning though, you are right. Watson is the best up-side player in Georgia with Chubb a close second.

Being a Buford fan I said last season that Watson was the best HS QB I’d ever seen after the Red Elephants 19-15 win at Buford.

He’s done nothing to change MHO… Even leading Gainesville to the state championship..

that is right, guys. Watson is good enough to win the Heisman. Has to be No. 1.

-Truth- based on what you said about Watson…Hutson Mason was the best player in Georgia as well during his senior year…

Man, Are you guys hearing Marietta’s ANTHONY JENNINGS is competing for back up QB at LSU? This kid was the best dual threat QB in America coming out of high school and Georgia doesn’t even offer!

You DAWGS are going to see him on the field in Athens, and better yet, in Baton Rouge next year.

Another brilliant evaluation by Richt and Bobo. No wonder it’s been 33 years.

tide roll: You can’t really argue the fact that Mark Richt and Mike Bobo have produced some good QBs. Tell me, which QBs from Bama and LSU are starting in the NFL right now? Exactly.

Jennings is backup to Zach Mettenberger who was dismissed from UGA … you’ll see Jacob Park or Hutson Mason @ QB… …. and Mike Thornton ” Meat ball ” on the de Line .. Go Dawgs…
