Loads of College Prospects at the Dome

10 Games in the span of roughly 36 hours. That is the football fest that is the <b>Georgia State Semi-Finals in the Georgia Dome</b>. High School football fans will flock to the Dome in droves this weekend, but I am going to give college fans amd coaches a reason to come watch as well.

Come see the future stars in action. Here are some of the top players to watch in each game this weekend. The action kicks off Friday Morning at 9:00 AM.

Friday Morning 9:00 AM


I am not as familiar with these two Single A teams. I don't believe either has a player that has been offered a D1 scholarship yet, but you can bet that a team that beat Metter 56-7 (Lincoln) has some talent on the field.

Friday 12:00 PM


One of the most intriguing matchups of the day also features some of the best talent. The #1 Prospect in the state of Georgia Eric McLendon will suit up for Vidalia. McLendon will likely choose the Georgia Bulldogs on signing day. 

Friday 3:00 PM


Seth Watts will not suit up for Washington County, but Tony Richardson will. Kentucky fans can get their first look at commitment Wesley Woodyard who scored the only points with a safety in the Grangers' 2-0 Quarterfinal win over Swainsboro.

Friday 6:00 PM


Erik Walden of TCC might be the biggest name in this huge matchup, but he has been banged up and likely won't play this weekend. Marist looks to be healthy with Sean McVay looking at the likes of Tulane, Miami (OH), Air Force, and Georgia Tech. Chris Davis is another player that is giving Georgia Tech a strong look, and OL Matt Rumsey is already committed to Duke.

Friday 9:00 PM


Easily the most star studded game of the the day, Camden County will have two players that will stay the night in Atlanta and visit Georgia Tech officially this weekend in Djay Jones and Kevin Patterson.

Newnan has two of the top players in the state in Demiko Goodman and Earnest Mitchell. Mitchell is taking a hard look at Florida State, and Goodman will likely come down between Georgia and Florida State.

Saturday 9:00 AM


Clinch County is going to be bringing some serious talent into the Dome to kick off Saturday's action. Joe Mingo, Dexter Foster and Lorenzo Kelsaw are all players that can get it done.

But the big name in this game is worth the price of admission alone. Georgia Commitment Charles Johnson will do it all for the Red Devils, and if you haven't seen him play, get out of bed early and get to the Dome for this game. You will not be disappointed. We're talking about a player that is 6-3 and 250 pounds that will line up at DE, LB, RB, and WR as well as return punts.

Saturday 12:00 PM


Decatur has gotten to the Dome with a lot of young players that are going to be prospects in the class of 2005.

Buford has gotten to the Dome with more Division 1 prospects than some entire regions in 5A. Kyle Manley has already made a commitment to Georgia Tech. Zach Smith is committed to Duke. Neil Brown is still looking at several colleges, and Darius Walker has a list of favorites that measures up to his career touchdown record. This is another "Don't Miss" game.

Saturday 3:00 PM

Spalding has gotten to the Dome with a lot of Blue Collar work and good effort. They will be trying to stop a Peach County team that is loaded with talent.

Georgia fans are going to want to get to the Dome for this game as well. Quarterback A.J. Bryant is enrolling at Georgia in January, but he has other things on his mind right now, like a state title. He could be electric on the Dome's carpet. Roger King is another speedster to keep an eye out for, and Peach will feature three of the state's top juniors. You might as well bring plenty of money for food on Saturday, because you aren't going to want to miss this game either.

Saturday 6:00 PM


Statesboro dismissed their coach yesterday. What kind of effect will that have on the team? We'll find out in a hurry Saturday night because Tucker is loaded with talent.

Tucker features Nebraska commitment D.T. McDowell (QB), Auburn commitment James Swinton (WR), and All-State DE Brandon Lang who could choose between Florida State and Georgia. Georgia commitment Thomas Brown will miss this game with an injury, and his teammates will have to continue to step it up.

Saturday 9:00 PM


Valdosta is another blue collar team that I am looking forward to seeing in person for the first time this year. Carlton Williams is a big safety prospect that is getting some looks.

Travis Evans of Westside Macon went past the 5,000 yard mark this season, and I am looking forward to getting my first look at him this Saturday. He wasn't at any camps this summer, and getting film on him has been like pulling teeth. We're talking about one of the most productive running backs in Georgia High School history. Stick around for the late game and check him out.

As you can see, there is a reason for nearly every college fan in the south to come to the Dome and check out one of your future stars. College Football is stronger in the South than it is anywhere else in the country, and it all starts with the high schools. So come on out and check out the tomorrow's future stars.
