There is a new receiver to know in the 2018 class in Campbell’s Ray Decosey. He is still somewhat of an unknown recruit at this time, but he does have a Georgia State offer, with more schools showing strong interest like Georgia Tech, Duke, Central Florida, Navy, and Eastern Carolina.
South Carolina is the only SEC team showing interest at the moment, after they saw Decosey run a blazing 4.3 forty yard dash when hhe camped there. Decosey also claims that he ran a 4.35 at Georgia State, which helped him land his first offer. The 5-foot-10 170-pound speedster started a cornerback on his high school team this fall, and excelled in special teams throughout the season. He admitted that the schools he’s hearing from are recruiting him as a receiver. Look for more schools to start showing strong interest in the Decosey after the camp circuit this spring.
Another 2018 prospect on the rise is Groves (GA) athlete Stephaun Peters. While still does not hold an offer, teams like Florida, Tennessee, Georgia Southern, Central Florida, and South Florida are all showing strong interest at the moment. Peters played all over the field this past season, recording four interceptions at defensive back and nine touchdowns as a receiver. The 6-foot-1 185-pound Peters moved to Georgia while still in high school, so it’s taking his recruitment a little longer to really get going. He’s a good athlete and on film shows the ability to get separation on offense and great ball skills. Peters made 1st team all-region this year, and will look to see his recruitment pick up after a successful offseason competing at numerous camps.
Only a freshman, Troup County back Kobe Hudson is a name to know sooner than later. The freshman had 12 rushing touchdowns on the season, and will be playing in the Freshman All-American game in San Antonio this January. Hudson has the athleticism and ball skills to play multiple positions, and has already earned multiple offers. Other Troup County players to know are 2019 defensive end King Mwikuta who has early offers from Auburn and Louisville, 2018 quarterback Montez Crowe, and kicker Carson Wreyford.
2019 lineman Chistopher Hinton, an early five-star candidate, tells me he will not be playing in the True19 game against Texas next month. Hinton told me he just needs a break after a long but successful season where his GAC made it all the way to the state championship game, losing to a very talented Cedar Grove team.
