UGA-bound running back Stanley Williams, the marquee football recruit at Apalachee High School has transferred but plenty of other prospects remain at the Barrow County school.
Rakim Peters, a 6-foot-3, 235-pound defensive end, is mulling over scholarship offers from Clemson, Missouri, Mississippi State, Kentucky and Syracuse.
“He’s pretty good in space, but he’s also strong enough and big enough that he can play that defensive end position in a four-man front,” Apalachee coach Shane Davis said.
Apalachee also features Johnny Thompson, a 6-3, 215-pound tight end that has committed to Purdue. Due to injuries, Thompson has had to play offensive tackle and had 21 pancake blocks in his first two games.
After his sophomore season last year, Williams transferred from Apalachee to a nearby private school, George Walton Academy. Williams committed to play at UGA after his freshman year in high school.
Apalachee plays host to Clarke Central at 7:30 pm Thursday in a game that will be televised live on WSB-TV/Me-TV 2.2, which can be found on the following cable systems by channel number: Comcast 248 (Metro Atlanta, Calhoun, Rome), Charter 126 (Metro Atlanta, Athens), Windstream 871 (Dahlonega, Hiawassee, Cornelia, Commerce), ETC 190 (Ellijay, Cherokee, Pickens, Gilmer, Fannin), Plantation 601 (Green, Putnam) and Knology 168 (West Point).
