McEachern High School has been known for producing talented prospects year after year, including UGA lineman Julian Rochester, UGA receiver Tyler Simmons, Florida State quarterback commit Bailey Hockman, North Carolina receiver Tyler Smith, and many more. There are three more McEachern players that you might not know at the moment, but you will very soon.
Genuine Potts, a 2018 receiver, is a prospect who is really on the rise. I first saw Potts perform at a camp this time last year, and his size and jump ball skills were easy to notice. He does a nice job getting open, and has been a reliable weapon for Hockman the past two seasons. He performed well at multiple camps in the 2016 offseason, and will look to do the same in the coming months. The 6-foot-3 192-pound junior is hearing from schools like Auburn, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Duke and Northwestern. I’m expecting some impressive offers to come his way shortly. Potts is one of the top receivers in Georgia for the 2018 class, and will be participating in the annual Rising Seniors game on December 30th.
Another McEachern prospect to know is Paris Brown. The sophomore led the Indians in rushing this season, carrying the ball 179 times for 1116 yards and 8 touchdowns. It’s impressive for any sophomore to lead their team in rushing, but even more so at a powerhouse like McEachern. Brown is a strong runner with the ability to break tackles, but also shows good burst on film. Look for many schools to start showing major interest in the 2019 back sooner than later. He is certainly a prospect to know.
The McEachern staff is also excited about a 2020 player who should make an instant impact on the team next season. Jordon Simmons, younger brother of current Georgia receiver Tyler Simmons, has the potential to be the next big playmaker at McEachern as soon as next season. He did not play varsity last year as the team is already loaded at the running back position, but it’s clear big things are in store for the younger Simmons. At 5-foot-10 170-pounds, he’s still getting bigger, but like his older brother, Jordon can flat out run. Look for him to have the same career as Tyler did at McEachern the next few years.
