Do you know about any juniors playing Georgia high school football that project to be D1 prospects?
Georgia’s RisingSeniors.com Bowl is looking for a few good men for its Dec. 30 all-star game.
The RisingSeniors.com Bowl is a recruiting showcase that features many of the state’s top junior football players each year. Around 60 of 90 roster spots have already been reserved, with the remaining 30 to be filled over the next few weeks.
The RisingSeniors.com Bowl is only in its second year, but has quickly passed national all-star games such the Under Armour All-America game and U.S. Army All-American Bowl with its importance toward recruiting. Why is that? The Under Armour and U.S. Army game features seniors which have either finished the recruiting process (by committing to a school) or are close to it. Recruiting is over.
Meanwhile, RisingSeniors.com features only juniors which are just beginning to appear on the recruiting radar with both college scouts and recruiting websites. If a high school junior performs well in the game’s practices and game, he could double, triple or quadruple his offers. He could be “discovered.” On the flip side, a highly-touted prospect who does not perform well could lose offers.
How does a junior get into the game? He can be nominated by anybody through the website at RisingSeniors.com or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The game is the brainchild of former Georgia Tech star Joe Burns and his former teammate with the NFL’s Buffalo Bills, Izell Reese. The four-day event, which also includes “life skills “ and mentoring classes, will be held Dec. 30 at Grady Stadium. There is no fee for participating in RisingSeniors.com, which has been approved by the Georgia High School Association.
Some of the top juniors committed to play in this year’s game (go to website for full rosters):
Now it’s your turn. Do you know a Georgia high school junior that deserves to be in the game? If so, please post his information below. Please include first and last name, position, height and weight, 40 speed and any weightlifting stats, and ONE link to any YouTube video.
