One of the most impressive players I've seen so far this season has been Marietta (GA) sophomore receiver Ramel Keyton. Through 9 games this season, Keyton has totaled 67 catches for 1204 yards and 7 touchdowns. The 6-foot-2 180-pound reciver has good body control, great hands, and has the natural ability to snag the ball out of the air. He's not the fastest guy, but he still has enough speed to get behind defenders. I've seen him win jump balls, make tough catches falling to the ground, and reel in balls on the sideline. He currently holds one offer from Syracuse, but it shouldn't take long for him to pick up his second.
The recruiting process is still in the early stages, but Keyton already knows that he's looking for in a school.
"I want to go to a school where we can win a lot, but where I can build relationships there too and enjoy my time there." Keyton said. "I want to have memories that I can share with my kids one day. I also want to play in the NFL, so I'm looking for a place where they can put me in the right position to get there. If I don't make it, at least I can get a good job because of the school I went to."
With freshman phenom Harrison Bailey throwing him the ball the next three seasons, expect Keyton's number to keep getting better and better. Already one of the stat'es leading receivers, it won't take long before schools start taking notice. The Blue Devils are a pass happy team, giving Keyton plenty opportunities to show what he can do to scouts and college coaches. Keyton admitted that Georgia was his favorite team growing up, but he has not spoken to anyone on the Georgia staff as of yet. Keyton and teammate Harrison Bailey will be visiting Florida this upcoming weekend.
Yesterday the Georgia staff extended an offer to Eastside (GA) DB Eric Stokes, one of the fastest players in the country. He has the speed, but he also has great size at 6-foot 172-pounds. He has the size that the Georgia staff is looking for, and while he still might be a little raw at the position, he has the potential to be an early contributor wherever he ends up. On film, he has no problem playing physical, and does a good job of diagnosing a play early and making a play on the ball. The Bulldogs have two current commits at defensive back including cornerback William Poole and safety Richard LeCounte.
Harrison QB Justin Fields continues to see his recruitment pick up this fall as he received an offer from Michigan State. The big 6-foot-3 209-pound four-star prospect is ranked as the third-best QB prospect in Georgia for the 2018 class. I've been told by someone close to the situation that Tennessee might be in the best spot to land the dual-threat quarterback as of today.
Another 2017 prospect who continues to rack up offers is Roswell (GA) offensive tackle Jordan Tucker. The 6-foot-7 325-pound senior recently decommitted from Tennessee, and has recently picked up offers from Maryland and Mississippi State.
