Looking at top '11 prospects in Georgia

Tuesday, December 1, 2009

Posted by JC Shurburtt

Here's a look at some early information on six juniors from Georgia. All are on the ESPNU150 Class of 2011 Watch List.

Quan Bray, athlete, Hogansville, Ga./Callaway: Bray is an electric prospect who has seen significant action since his freshman year. He has played running back, quarterback, receiver and on defense for his team and projects at a number of spots in college. Georgia Tech, Michigan or another option-oriented team could use him under center and he'd also be the perfect fit for a team that uses the Wildcat package. Most colleges see him as a slot receiver who can do various things, like Percy Harvin did at Florida. The 5-foot-11, 178-pounder is definitely one to watch. Bray has early offers from all over the Southeast, including Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Clemson and Tennessee, among others.

Brian Randolph, safety, Marietta, Ga./Kell: Randolph is a versatile athlete who plays running back and safety for the same high school that Georgia Tech running back Jonathan Dwyer came out of. The 6-foot, 180-pound Randolph wants to play safety in college. Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Georgia Tech and others have offered. Randolph's father ran track at Mississippi State.

Jay Rome, tight end, Valdosta, Ga./Valdosta: The latest elite prospect to come out of this South Georgia hotbed already is racking up the offers. Florida, Florida State and others have jumped in the boat, along with Stanford and Notre Dame. The early team to beat for the 6-foot-6, 227-pounder, however, is Clemson. His father played football and basketball for the Tigers and he's enjoyed the visits he's made to Clemson this year and publicly named them his leader several times.

James Vaughters, linebacker, Tucker, Ga./Tucker: Vaughters already has two dozen offers and counting. He is the latest prospect to come out of Tucker, which is a top talent-producing program in the DeKalb County area of metro Atlanta. The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder has Florida, Georgia, Notre Dame, Alabama, Auburn, North Carolina, Stanford, Georgia Tech, Clemson, Virginia Tech, Miami (Fla.) and others on his early list. The Tar Heels could be a player here. His father attended UNC.

Gabe Wright, defensive tackle, Columbus, Ga./Carver: Wright already has offers from most of the Southeast including Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Clemson, Florida State, Florida, Tennessee and others. The 6-foot-3, 255-pounder named Auburn his leader earlier this season and also has the Bulldogs, Noles, Crimson Tide and Clemson in the mix. Wright has excellent size and should be among the more coveted defensive tackle prospects in the Southeast for 2011.

C.J. Uzomah, quarterback, Suwanee, Ga./North Gwinnett: The 6-foot-5, 225-pound Uzomah was on the recruiting board of a lot of college programs as an athlete/receiver/defensive end, but when you watch him play quarterback you can see he's potentially special at that position. His coach believes he could be special in college at that position. Uzomah is closing in on nearly two dozen offers, including tenders from Georgia, Alabama, LSU, Tennessee, Auburn and Clemson, among others.

IMO, the best JR player in Georgia is Carver-Columbus RB Isiah Crowell. He is also a member of the ESPNU 150.

According to Rivals he already holds offers from Cal, Clemson, Duke, UF, FSU, UGA, LSU, Miami, UNC, South Carolina, and UT. Scout also has Alabama, Texas, and USC listed as schools that have extended him offers. Carver lost in the 3rd round of the GHSA playoffs, but it was not Crowell's fault. He had 19 carries for 254 yards including a 98 yard TD run. I will see if I can dig up some highlights.
