It’s been almost two months since the initial South Georgia Player Rankings. Version 2.0 sees expansion from a Top 105 to a Top 110 with ten new names. Each new entry is bolded, there is also a column for current and previous ranking as well as commitment column.

Not much has changed on the recruiting front, but the University of Georgia did pick up their first commitment south of the gnat-line.

Fort Valley (Ga.) Peach County wide out Kearis Jackson recently chose the Bulldogs over 20 other suitors which included Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Miami and Michigan, just to name a few. Through three games his senior year, Jackson is averaging 23-yards per reception and has accounted for 558 all-purpose yards.

Also of note are two key additions to the Kingsland (Ga.) Camden County roster. Defensive end Myjai Sanders and athlete Jakaree Gadsden transferred from Jacksonville (Fla.) Raines prior to the start of the 2017 season.

Sanders is the highest new entry at #27. As a junior he recorded 40 tackles, five TFL’s and three sacks in just nine games. He currently has offers from Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi State, Virginia Tech, and at least ten others.

Gadsden accounted for 133-yards and two scores in his debut with the Wildcats. But has since been hampered with a minor injury. He makes his entry at #72.

After Sanders the next highest new entry belongs to Vienna (Ga.) Dooly County offensive lineman Travis Glover, who comes in at #48. It’s hard not to notice Glover on the gridiron as he toes the scales at 6-foot-5, 315-pounds. He currently has offers from FAU, Mississippi State, Oregon State and Troy.

Right on his heels at #50 is Leesburg (Ga.) Lee County inside linebacker Quin “The Hammer” Geer. Geer transferred in from Johns Creek (Ga.) over the summer and has already made an impact for the Trojans defense. Lee County has started the season off (4-0) while rendering just 12.5 points per contest. Geer has offers from Chattanooga, The Citadel, Mercer and Western Illinois.

One of the more impressive looking lineman on the hoof is Springfield (Ga.) Effingham County offensive tackle Michael Richard. At 6-foot-4, 275-pounds Richard could project as several position along the offensive front. He makes his entry at #68 and possesses an offer from Army.

Three players made significant upward movement in the South Georgia Player Rankings. Richmond Hill (Ga.) receiver Sam James jumps from #9 to #5. Through two game this season he has caught seven passes for 176 yards and three touchdowns. West Virginia has already secured a verbal commitment from the speedy wide out.

Waycross (Ga.) Ware County linebacker Ernest Jones started the season banged-up. Last week he showed that his health should no longer be of concern. The South Carolina commit recorded 12 tackles, three TFL’s, one PBU and a blocked field goal versus Douglas (Ga.) Coffee. This athletic backer sees his stock ascend five spots from #11 to #6 overall in South Georgia.

Many wondered what kind of season Montezuma (Ga.) Macon County wide out Trey Brown would have with the loss of record setting passer K’hari Lane to graduation. Through three games this season Brown has snagged 14 passes for 269 yards and four touchdowns. His recruiting has really taken off, picking up offers from Marshall, Memphis, MTSU, NC State, Oregon, Oregon State and UCF. Brown jumps 12 spots from #46 to #34.

With a majority of the 2017 season still upon us, hopes to continue to evaluate and discover the next South Georgia gridiron gems. Look for a record number of South Georgia players to ink scholarships come February, 7.
