Jadon Haselwood, Wide Receiver, 2019, Cedar Grove (GA)
Haselwood has become a big name in recruiting the past couple of weeks. The impressive freshman had a big 2015 season, and the coaches were raving about him to me before their playoff game against Westside Macon last fall. He has good size at 6-foot-2 175-pounds, and will continue to get bigger. That is great size for a freshman, but his speed is what coaches are drooling about. Haselwood is explosive after the catch, and has a chance to score anytime he touches the ball.
Look for Haselwood's role in the offense to grow in the 2016 season, as well as his impact on the defensive side of the ball. Haselwood has the size and ball skills to be an impact-full safety or linebacker for Cedar Grove next season. Georgia, Michigan, LSU, Kentucky, Louisville, and Illinois have all offered the elite freshman with plenty more on the way. A name to remember in the 2019 class, as he should become a national recruit sooner than later.
B.J Foster, Safety, 2018, Angleton (TX)
)Foster was offered by the Bulldogs this past Wednesday, and looks to be one of the top athletes in the country for the 2018 class. He has good size at 6-foot-2 180-pounds, and starred at both running back and safety during the 2015 season. On offense, Foster doesn't show elite speed, but he's a tough runner who is tough to tackle, and has good enough speed to be a threat to score anywhere on the field. He sees the field well, runs with power, and does a good job of running behind his blockers as well as running in space. What impressed me most at running back was his ability to shed tackles. Foster shows a strong stiff arm and is rarely tackled by a defensive back once he gets into the secondary.
Although hes a scoring machine on offense, many schools would love to have him on the opposite side of the ball. On film, Foster shows tremendous closing speed, flying through the line and making plays in the backfield. He has a nose for the football and does a good job of being all over the field. He also showed good ball skills when the ball is in the air. Foster made multiple interceptions off tipped passes, and is always a threat to score once he has the ball in his hands.
Foster holds offers from top programs across the country including Georgia, Tennessee, Baylor, Texas, Oklahoma, TCU, Michigan, Michigan State, among others.
Dameon Pierce, Running Back, 2018, Bainbridge (GA)
One of the top backs in the region for the 2018 class, Bainbridge star Dameon Pierce just received an offer from the University of Georgia. Pierce had an incredible sophomore campaign last year rushing for 2,060 yards and 33 touchdowns.
On film, Pierce shows elite tackle breaking ability, and refuses to be brought down by one defender. He powers through arm tackles, shows great balance, and is constantly dragging defenders for extra yards. He does not have elite speed, but he is a back who can carry the load. He can tire out a defense with his running style, helping him to break long runs late in the game.
Georgia, Florida State, Auburn, Michigan State, Georgia Tech, Stanford, among others have offered the bruising 5-foot-11 203-pounder. The rising junior will be one of the top backs in the state of Georgia over the next two years.
