Countdown to #1 in Georgia (40-21)

Scott Kennedy counts down TheInsiders.com's Top 100 College Prospects in the state of Georgia. Today for the Class of 2004. Today, we have #40-#21.

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. Georgia ranks #4 on the list, and this is a particularly deep year for the Peach State.

It cannot be questioned that Georgia is one of the most talent laden states in the nation. No one covers Georgia like TheInsiders.com, Jamie Newberg both live in the Metro Atlanta area, and no one in this business sees more players in the state of Georgia than than TheInsiders.com.

We are going to issue a top 100 list for the state of Georgia. Today we count down players 40-21

#40 Anthony Parker
Offensive Line
Ht: 6-4 Wt: 285 40: 4.75
Lovejoy HS (Lovejoy)

An extremely athletic big man that can get out on a linebacker or drive block a defensive tackle. Anthony Parker finishes his blocks well and plays with a mean streak. He projects as an interior lineman on the next level, and would fit well in a scheme that runs a lot of pulls and traps.  

#39 Neil Brown
Defensive Tackle
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 248 40: 4.87
Buford HS (Buford)

A dominating force in the middle of Buford's defensive line, Neil Brown has great quickness and strength. He gets off the ball in a hurry and is a disruptive force in the opponents' backfield. He is a pass rushing defensive tackle that can occupy two blockers.

#38 Carlton Williams
Safety
Ht: 6-3 Wt: 200 40: 4.6
Valdosta HS (Valdosta)

A player maker from the safety position, Williams is bigger than a lot of linebackers on the high school level, but he can run and cover like a safety. With his height, he could end up at linebacker on the next level, or he could be someone's immediate answer at strong safety. Supports the run like you would expect from a player from Valdosta.

#37 Cameron Mayo
Offensive Line
Ht: 6-3 Wt: 250 40: 5.15
Dalton HS (Dalton)

An offensive lineman blessed with great feet and excellent technique. Cameron May isn't the biggest or the strongest offensive lineman in the Top 100, but because of his skills, he is one of the best. Has the ability to add another 40 pounds of muscle in the right strength and conditioning program and be a star interior lineman on the next level.

#36 Erik Walden
Athlete
Ht: 6-0 Wt: 180 40: 4.5
Thomas County Central (Thomasville)

A spectacular option quarterback, Erik Walden helped lead his team to the state finals last season. He has tremendous burst in the open field and can play wide receiver, corner, or safety on the next level.

#35 Gerald McRath
Linebacker
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 205 40: 4.57
McEachern HS (McEachern)

Gerald McRath is a bit of an anomaly at this stage of the recruiting process. He is a legit 6-2 and 205 pounds. He has the reach of a player that is 6-6. He runs down wide receivers on the field. He is instinctive, smart, and tenacious. And he doesn't have any scholarship offers yet. Some of the smaller schools that read this report, get film on McRath as quick as you can, and see for yourselves. You might just be able to steal a blue chipper out of Georgia.

#34 Boston McConnell
Linebacker
Ht: 6-1 Wt: 223 40: 4.6 
Northeast HS (Macon)

We are in the middle of a run on great linebackers, and McConnell is one of the best. He is a throwback type of player that goes from sideline to sideline. He is big enough to play very early.

#33 Travis Chambers
Linebacker
Ht: 5-11 Wt: 211 40: 4.6
Chamblee HS (Chamblee)

Again, not the biggest or the fastest, just flat out one of the best. I plugged in Chamblee's game against Lithonia this week to give Travis Chambers another look, and there he was making 6 of the first 7 tackles with a cast on his hand. A ridiculous 700+ pound squat, Chambers is ready to play right away. He's not going to blow you away in a combine; you just don't want to be looking across the line of scrimmage at him. Georgia Tech could be hard to beat for Chambers.

#32 Frank Morton
Offensive/Defensive line
Ht: 6-3 Wt: 278 40: 4.85
Southwest Dekalb HS (Decatur)

An athletic big man that looks like he was built to play guard, but has deceptive speed for his size. Frank Morton makes a living in the offensive back field of opponents, and he controls the line of scrimmage for SWD's speedy linebackers. He could play either offensive guard or defensive tackle in college. 

#31 C.J. Barrows
Safety/Running Back
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 190 40: 4.5
McEachern HS (McEachern)

A running back with a smooth style of running, Barrows glides when he runs and always seems to slip through tackles for an extra four or five yards rushing. He is a more natural running back right now, but he has the perfect frame to play safety, and that's where he could end up depending on his college of choice. Alabama and Maryland could be the top two for Barrows.

#30 Cullen Harper
Quarterback
Ht: 6-3 Wt: 200 40: 4.8
Sequoyah HS (Canton)

A big, strong quarterback, Harper has a high release and throws a pretty deep ball. He impressed at every passing camp that he hit this summer, and he made an early commitment to Clemson. Sequoyah is opening up the offense a bit more to take advantage of Harper's strong arm.

#29 Cedric Hodges
Running Back
Ht: 6-0 Wt: 185 40: 4.5
Houston County HS (Warner Robins)

Cedric Hodges has speed and vision, and he has used his ability to rack up a ton of yards for Houston County. He has picked up several good offers already, and he will get more. He could play wide receiver on the next level. His versatility out of the backfield makes him a very dangerous weapon.

#28 Derrell Stegall
Wide Receiver
Ht: 6-0 Wt: 161 40: 4.52
Newnan HS (Newnan)

Derrell Stegall is coming off an injury last year, and that has slowed his recruitment a bit this summer. He is fully healed now though, and he has been putting on shows at various passing camps in the state this summer. He and Demiko Goodman form one of the most dangerous receiving tandems in the south this year.

#27 Calvin Booker
Quarterback
Ht: 6-3 Wt: 205 40: 4.8
Mays HS (Atlanta)

With an embarrassment of riches at wide receiver, what looks to finally be a stable coaching staff, and a cannon for an arm, Calvin Booker is poised for a break out year. He is a raw talent, having had 5 head coaches in his career, but his physical tools are without question. Booker has already made a pledge to Auburn.

#26 Darrell Robertson
Defensive End
Ht: 6-5 Wt: 215 40: 4.5
Jonesboro HS (Jonesboro)

Darrell Robertson is a speed rushing defensive end prospect with a tremendous frame. He can easily play in the 260 range before his career is through in college. Robertson is an excellent student, and you have to watch out for Florida State in his recruitment.

#25 Alex Mortensen 
Quarterback
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 180 40: 4.72
Landmark Christian (Fairburn)

The most "ready" quarterback in a ridiculously deep year for quarterbacks in the state of Georgia. Mortensen is an assassin on the field. If there is a mistake in the secondary, he will calmly, surgically make a defense pay. He will wait in the pocket until the last minute to make a big play. Well schooled and heady, Mortensen is being recruited nationally. NC State, Arkansas, and Ole Miss appear to be the front runners.

#24 Brandon Lang
Defensive End
Ht: 6-5 Wt: 220 40: 4.5
Tucker HS (Tucker)

Brandon Lang is another speed rusher with an outstanding frame. He makes a lot of plays from his defensive end position, because he will chase a play down from the backside. He, like Robertson, will play in the 260 range in college without losing any quickness. Florida State appears to be the front runner for Lang right now.

#23 Eric Williams
Safety
Ht: 6-3 Wt: 190 40: 4.55
Metter HS (Metter)

If you saw Metter in the Dome last year, you will have no questions about Williams' ability to hit. He had the hit of the year last year in the semi-final game at the Georgia Dome in the first quarter. He is excellent in run support. A sure tackler with strong hands. Williams has already made a commitment to Georgia Tech. 

#22 Demiko Goodman
Wide Receiver
Ht: 6-4 Wt: 185 40: 4.4
Newnan HS (Newnan)

At this point of his career, Demiko Goodman is an athlete playing wide receiver. He is one of the best 400 meter men in the country, and he has a huge upside at 6-4. When he harnesses his potential and becomes a receiver, he will be a force to be reckoned with. Georgia could be tough to beat for Goodman's services.

#21 Ramarcus Brown 
Wide Receiver/Corner
Ht: 6-0 Wt: 160 40: 4.4
Tri-Cities HS (Tri-Cities)

Ramarcus Brown is a gifted athlete that will give a coach a lot of options. He has tremendous speed and hands, and he could line up at wide receiver or corner on the next level. Tri-Cities is loaded with speed this year, and Brown is a big reason why.
