SCPrepNation.com's Week 1 Stars Of The Palmetto State
Joey Copeland – Quarterback – Gaffney High
Final Score: Gaffney 35, Dorman 14

We interviewed Copeland last week and he also landed on our Week 0 list. Although he didn't put up the same huge numbers this week his performance against an always tough Dorman squad was even more impressive as he is starting to show college coaches they need to take a look with a 13-20 night for 196 yards and a touchdown with 2 interceptions. He also got it done on the ground again with 15 carries for 62 yards and 3 more touchdowns. Copeland has the Indian faithful loving what they see in their new quarterback early on.

Quinshad Davis – Wide Receiver – Gaffney High
Final Score: Gaffney 35, Dorman 14

Davis was at it again and is on the list once again this week. He finished the night with 5 catches for 126 yards and a touchdown. More offers are expected in the very near future and we'll let you know who else adds their name to his list.

Raymond Smith – Running Back – Dorman High
Final Score: Gaffney 35, Dorman 14

There's no quit in the Dorman back but he caught some severe cramps in this showdown but still managed 14 carries for 131 yards and 2 touchdowns for the Cavaliers. He's already got some offers and we expect some more to come in as he continues to show his talents this season. One of the state's best running backs in 2012.

Ryan Perkins – Quarterback – Woodruff High
Final Score: Woodruff 51, Greenville 28

Perkins was on this list multiple times last season and he's at it again for the Wolverines as they throttled Greenville. The Wolverines are expected to challenge for the AA state title again and they disposed of the AAA Red Raiders pretty handily. Perkins had a monster night going 17-29 for 303 yards and 6 touchdowns.

Hermundre Rutledge – Wide Receiver – Woodruff High
Final Score: Woodruff 51, Greenville 28

Rutledge is a 2013 prospect who caught our eye last season and he announced his presence in a big way on Friday night in the Wolverines victory with 6 receptions for 80 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also had 5 carries for 60 yards on the ground. This kid is electric with the football in his hands. We'll catch up with him soon to talk about recruiting.

Blake Bone – Wide Receiver – Woodruff High
Final Score: Woodruff 51, Greenville 28

Kevin Crosby may have to hold off Blake Bone as the top prospect in the 2014 class. Bone looked highly impressive on Friday with 5 receptions for 146 yards and 3 touchdowns. His length, athleticism, and skill set already have us ready to see the Wolverines in action soon. Bone is easily one of 2014's very best not only in South Carolina but on the national level too.

Reese Hannon – Quarterback – Greer High
Final Score:Rock Hill 41, Greer 25

Hannon picked up right where he left off during Week 0 but the Jackets' defense sputtered in the loss. Hannon had another monster game with 11 rushes for 71 yards on the ground while going 19-46 for 342 yards through the air. He's already holding some offers but more schools will definitely start to take a closer look as he's amped up his play early in his senior season.

Adrian Kollock – Quarterback – Spartanburg High
Final Score: Spartanburg 40, Union County 7

"L.A." as he's known was definitely on as he helped the Vikings earn a nice win over a tough Union County squad. Kollock, a dual-threat quarterback, rushed for 131 yards on 13 carries and scored a touchdown. He was equally effective through the air going 8-14 for 170 yards and 2 touchdowns. Kollock has good size, athleticism, and a big arm. We'll talk to him soon regarding his recruitment.

Ryan Moore – Running Back – Clover High
Final Score: Clover 35, Forestview (NC) 16

Moore powered Clover with 12 carries for 161 yards and 3 touchdowns. His most spectacular play was a 99 yard touchdown run. Younger brother of former Clover star RB Ricky Moore who says little brother is better than he was.

Devaris Brunson – Linebacker – Lake City High

Final Score: Lee Central 38, Lake City 36

This youngster is really coming on and his play is proof positive of it as he was all over the field with 10 tackles, two tackles for loss, forced a fumble, and blocked a punt. Brunson is projecting to be one of the state's top 2013 prospects and already is picking up interest from some of the southeast's top schools early on in his junior season. We'll talk with Brunson soon to see who he's really liking currently and what his plans are for possibly taking visits this season soon.

Tramel Terry – Wide Receiver/Cornerback – Goose Creek High
Final Score: Goose Creek 51, Irmo 7

The state's top athlete in the 2013 class was in full swing against Irmo. Terry was involved through the air and on the ground for the Gators with 4 rushes for 72 yards and two touchdowns and had 2 catches for 92 yards and another touchdown. Terry is one of those prospects who is blessed physically but also works extremely hard to be one of the best.
Verbal to Georgia
Casey Gladney – Wide Receiver – Columbia High
Final Score: Columbia 36, A.C. Flora 26

Gladney is starting on fire this season for the Capitals and they needed his exceptional talents to hold off A.C. Flora on Friday. After making the list last week he's back again and this time he had 12 catches for 200 yards and also had 2 rushes for 73 yards. He's been explosive so far and he's making a strong case for the Shrine Bowl team amongst a strong 2012 wide receiving class in-state
Committed to Alabama
Ky Tyler – Quarterback – Columbia High
Final Score: Columbia 36, A.C. Flora 26

The Capitals put up over 550+ yards of offense and Tyler was at the controls going 20-37 for 337 yards for 3 touchdowns but also added 15 carries for 71 yards and a touchdown. Big time athlete who is starting to generate plenty of noise for himself.
