Countdown to #1

Last season there were over 100 Division 1 signees in the state of Georgia. Georgia ranked #4 behind Texas, California, and Florida for total number of players placed. No one covers the state of Georgia like, and here is a look at the next 100 that have a chance to sign D1 scholarships. We begin our countdown to #1 today with 100-91.

When college football fans think of the top talent producing state the big 3 jump to mind right away: Texas, California, and Florida. Those three states once again led the nation in sending college kids to division 1 schools. According to StudentSports, California had 290 D1 signees, Texas 371, and Florida 178. Next on the list may come as a surprise to all but the most die-hard recruitniks: Georgia, with 111. Statistically speaking, Georgia is closer to Florida than Florida is to Texas or California.

It cannot be questioned that Georgia is one of the most talent laden states in the nation. BorderWars is going to issue a top 100 list for the state of Georgia, and we begin our countdown to the #1 player in Georgia today with 100-91.

#100 Jonna Lee
Ht: 6-1 Wt: 217 40: 4.7
Butler HS (Augusta)

In the NFL draft, the last man taken is labeled "Mr. Insignificant", but Jonna Lee is anything but insignificant despite his #100 ranking. He registered 119 tackles as a junior, and looks to easily match those numbers this year. An accomplished wrestler, Lee finished his junior campaign with a 45-3 record. Lee was one of the most impressive looking (physically) prospects strolling the campus in Athens at the Nike Camp in April. He is wide open among Auburn, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, South Carolina, and North Carolina.

#99 Duane Carter
Ht: 6-1 Wt: 190 40: 4.6
Douglas County HS (Douglasville)

Duane Carter is an excellent athlete that plays quarterback for Douglas County. Last season He had 1,500 yards and 17 touchdowns in a run oriented offense, and this year he's hoping to open things up a bit more. His first choice is quarterback at the next level, but he may find that his better option is playing wide receiver of defensive back. Carter is looking for his first offer, and he is wide open.

#98 Todd Brooks
Defensive End / Defensive Tackle
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 240 40: 4.7
Parkview HS (Lilburn)

Todd Brooks is the first of several prospects from a Parkview team that is working on a 30-0 record and back to back State Championships. Brooks will play defensive end and tight end for Parkview this year, but at the rate he is growing, he could easily be a defensive tackle on the next level. Likes Georgia, Georgia Tech, Furman, Virginia, and Clemson among others.

#97 Carlton Bailey
Cornerback / Wide Receiver
Ht: 5-11 Wt: 162 40: 4.5
Jonesboro HS (Jonesboro)

The name Bailey is synonymous with Georgia High School football, but this Bailey has no relation to Bailey's that have made a name for themselves at the University of Georgia. Make no mistake about it though, this Bailey can play as well. He has good height and excellent lateral movement that will bode well for him at cornerback or wide receiver.  He currently likes Alabama, Duke, East Carolina, Georgia Tech, and North Carolina.

#96 Antwuan Jackson
Wide Receiver
Ht: 5-10 Wt: 170 40: 4.5
Tri-Cities HS (East Point)

Don't be fooled by a less than stellar performance in the 40 yard dash at the Nike Camp when thinking about receivers in Georgia. Antwaun Jackson didn't run his best time, but he didn't catch 66 passes and ring up 1,470 yards and 24 touchdowns because he was slow. Jackson has plenty of speed to get it done at the next level, and he has the heart and attitude to match.

#95 Antoine Byrd
Wide Receiver
Ht: 5-7 Wt: 187 40: 4.4
Metter HS (Metter)

Antoine Byrd is undersized only in height. He can run like the wind and is pushing 190 pounds. His 4.47 forty and 4.31 shuttle were two of the most impressive times at the Nike Camp. He can make up for his 5-7 frame with a 33" vertical jump and strength to jam wide receivers at the line of scrimmage

#94 Clay Callaway
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 180 40: 4.6
Oconee County HS (Watkinsville)

Clay Callaway known best right now as being the son of Georgia Offensive Line Coach Neil Callaway, but Callaway has the tools to make his own name in this game. He has a good frame and excellent quickness, and he threw for over 1,700 yards as a junior with a 23/8 TD/INT ratio. He too is waiting for his first formal offer, and he is wide open among college choices.

#93 Roy Walker
Athlete / Quarterback
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 184 40: 4.6
Macon County HS (Montezuma)

Roy Walker is a terrific all around athlete. He rushed for over 800 yards and passed for 400 as a junior running the Wing-T at Macon County. He is a 2 time State Champion in the 300 meter hurdles. He wants his first shot at quarterback, but he may be better off at another position in college.

#92 Dyran Williams
Athlete / Cornerback
Ht: 5-6 Wt: 151 40: 4.4
Lovejoy HS (Lovejoy)

Dyran Williams is another player that makes up with his lack of size with sheer physical ability. Possibly the best player on a talented Lovejoy team, Williams has lightning quickness. He may or may not get a shot at the D1 level, but he can play if given the chance. He will be an excellent return man and slot receiver or cornerback.

#91 Seanrick Trimiar
Wide Receiver
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 180 40: 4.5
Habersham Central HS (Mount Airy)

Seanrick Trimiar ran for over 1,000 yards as a junior, but he sees his future at wide receiver, and that's were he will play this season. He has already received an offer from Northwestern and has a chance to climb rapidly up this list with a solid senior season.
