Once again some on the state’s top prospects came to Lassiter high school to display their talent at the Lassiter MVP Camp. As expected, many underclassmen made a name for themselves, and many rising seniors made a splash and helped their recruitment in a major way.
The day’s top performer was Memorial Day School (GA) athlete Winston Wright Jr. The 2019 prospect impressed all over the field, playing WR, DB, and RB throughout the camp. He showed great quickness, ball skills, and playmaking ability. Look for offers to start piling up soon.
The quarterback group was especially impressive. 2019 John Creek QB Zach Gibson was the top performer, showing he’s one of the top sophomore signal callers in Georgia. 2021 Buford (GA) QB Aaron McLaughlin looks the part physical and showcased a rocket arm. Look for him to be one of the top prospects in the country for the 2019 class.
A couple freshman QB’s also proved that they will be national prospects down the road as well. Pelham (GA) QB Kendrick Patterson and Cartersville (GA) QB Tee Webb both made some fantastic throws throughout the day, have great size, and will start picking up offers soon.
The two running backs that stood out the most were 2018 Kell (GA) back Josiah Futral and Stratford Academy (GA) back Tyler Jordan. Both looked great physically.
The receiver group had some drops early, but made some plays as the camp went on. 2018 Habersham Central (GA) WR Jim Barnett stood out with his route running and reliable hands. 2019 Coosa (GA) TE Sean Brown impressed everyone with his size, body control, and hands. His stock should skyrocket over the next few weeks. 2018 McEachern (GA) WR Genuine Potts continues to get bigger and showed his impressive hands as well. 2018 Holy Innocents (GA) WR Mykel Tubbs also had an impressive camp, as did 2019 WR Tyler Fromm. 2019 ATH Justin Baker out of Chattanooga (TN) looked great at WR as well, stopping on a dime and getting easy separation from the defender.
The offensive line group was also impressive, led by 2018 Southwest Macon guard Isaiah Goolsby. The massive lineman was one of the biggest campers, and dominated throughout the day. Look for schools to start giving him a look this spring and summer. On the defensive line, Tucker (GA) prospect Antonio Showers and Brookwood (GA) DE DJ Horne Jr won a ton of reps on the afternoon.
There were many standouts at linebacker led by Harrison (GA) product Ricky Williams Jr. He was excellent in drills, bends well, looks the part, and was quick to the ball in 1 on 1.s Look for his recruitment to pick up as well. 2020 Stockbridge (GA) linebacker John Prince had a big day as well. His quickness and 6-foot-1 200-pound frame already will help him become a top prospect in Georgia for the 2020 class. 2019 Lanier (GA) outside linebacker Kameron Brown also impressed throughout the day.
The secondary group was deep as well with multiple guys standing out. Buford (GA) defensive back Jamal Singleton isn’t the biggest guy, but he was blanketing receivers the entire day. Pelham (GA) DB Treun Pace has good size for a 2019 prospect with solid cover skills. Westside (GA) DB Tavores Pearson JR., McEachern (GA) DB DeWayne White, and Hapeville Charter (GA) DB Tajiri Smith also stood out during the 1 on 1s.
