One high school in Georgia now has 10 football players that have committed to major colleges, including seven to SEC schools.
It’s Stephenson High School, located in Stone Mountain. The latest college decision was TE Joshua Parris pledging to Syracuse over Ole Miss and Vanderbilt over the weekend. Parris has family in the area, and liked the way Syracuse uses the tight end in the passing game. He was originally committed to South Florida but switched after being told he was recruited to play fullback.
Stephenson projects to have 14-17 sign D1 scholarships in 2012, which is a candidate to lead the nation. Here’s an updated list of commitments:
Who is next?
RB TJ Moon (5-10, 215) has Boston College, Syracuse, Mississippi State and Illinois as his leaders.
OL Steve McKenzie (6-2, 300) is favoring Memphis, Southern Miss and Western Kentucky
OL Nicholas Gibbons (6-5, 285) has Vanderbilt, UCF and Boston College as his leaders
