Two of Georgia State’s top football recruits will be on display when Grayson plays Lowndes at 7:30 p.m. Friday in the state playoffs.

The game will be broadcast by WSB-TV’s digital channel 2.2 and on www.wsbtv.com

Grayson has two seniors committed to Georgia State – offensive tackle Garrett Gorringe (6-4, 275) and defensive tackle Sebastian Rice (6-5, 275).

“Sebastian grew up thinking he’d be baseball or basketball player; We found him in the halls and told him to be a football player,” Grayson coach Mickey Conn said. “Last year, he decided to give it a try and play on the JV. He has gotten bigger and stronger. We moved him around out there along the defensive line. He’s very physical, and hard for offensive linemen to move.”

The Grayson-Lowndes matchup will feature Grayson DE Robert Nkemdiche, the nation’s No. 1-ranked junior, and Lowndes S-LB Josh Harvey-Clemons, the state’s No. 1 senior.

Go Rams! How many D1 commitments is that? I count 3 with 3 other players having offers. It’s going to be a great game Friday. The traditional powerhouse vs. the risen star. Good luck to these guys. GSU got some good ones.

Pretty embarassing that our recruits get on TV in high school, but can’t when they come to college. Terrible.
