High School games to watch:
McEachern vs. North Cobb:
A big showdown in Powder Springs tonight between two very good 4-1 teams. These schools usually have pretty strong teams, and this should be a great environment at McEachern tonight. The Indians are led by FSU commit Bailey Hockman at QB and UNC commit Tyler Smith at WR. McEachern's only loss this season has been a 3-point loss to Grayson, one of the best high school football teams in the country. Both teams have so much talent and should be one of the best games in the Cobb County area.
Towers at Cedar Grove:
A good matchup here between some future Bulldogs. Georgia DT commit Devonte Wyatt and Towers take on a strong Cedar Grove team led by Georgia offensive line commits Netori Johnson and Justin Shaffer. It will be interesting to see how Wyatt, who is a quick DT prospect, performs against the large guard duo of Shaffer and Johnson.
Roswell vs. Lassiter:
Roswell looks to continue their dominance against undefeated Lassiter. The Lassiter Trojans also have a solid defense led by California DB commit Tyriq Hardimon and Georgia target Derrik Allen. Allen is a four-star prospect and the top safety in Georgia for 2018. The Roswell Hornets have multiple weapons on offense led by QB Malik Will, VT commit, and WR Corey Reed, a Louisville commit. The Hornets defense has been scary good as of late, and have allowed only 3 points combined in the last 3 games. Xavier McKinney is a major Georgia target in the secondary for the 2017 class.
