As part of a story that will come out later this week on how Georgia State can turn around its fortunes, I compiled this list of all the high school players who signed with Georgia State (list doesn’t include transfers or walk-ons and includes all signees, regardless of scholarship allotment).
As you can see, of the 67 players, there are very few — less than a handful, actually — who are still with the team that can be considered impact: Albert Wilson, Grant King, Ulrick John and Terrance Woodard. There are several transfer players who are making an impact, but the story (and the chart) is focused on finding and developing high school talent.
Everyone has different definitions of impact players. I chose to ask myself if I could see this player starting on another team. If the answer was yes, I considered them to be an impact player. Some players, like Mark Hogan, Danny Williams or Jordan Giles, I considered to be steady, productive starters but not consistent impact players,
