In version 4.0 of the SouthernPigskin.com 2019 Palmetto State Player Rankings expansion and movement take place. Eight new names surface on the recruiting trail pushing the ranking to a Top 40. We also see some movement with a handful of previously ranked players. Each new name is bolded.

The highest new entry, at #11, belongs to hybrid DE/OLB Ty Danzy of Anderson (S.C.) Westside. Danzy possesses the coveted length and athleticism that should soon propel him to multiple FBS offers. Through the first seven games his junior season he was second on the Rams defensive unit with 48 tackles, to go along with five TFL’s and three sacks. The two-sport star also averaged 6 points and 4.5 rebounds per game as a sophomore.

Next is giant wideout Kamal Desor who also doubles as a basketball star for the Boiling Springs (S.C.) Bulldogs. The 6-foot-4 air-bender caught 32 passes for 563 yards and five scores this past season. His size will cause serious matchup problems for smaller defensive backs. Desor makes his entry at #12.

Possibly the hardest bodies to find on the recruiting landscape are potential defensive tackles. Coming in at #16 is Tyquan Johnson of Cordova (S.C.) Edisto. This athletic defensive lineman could possibly project at strongside defensive end or move inside.  Johnson has recently picked up an offer from Wake Forest.

Honea Path (S.C.) Belton-Honea Path defensive tackle Tysheik Galloway recently picked up an ACC offer, Virginia. Through seven games his junior season, the true nose guard racked up 23 tackles, eight TFL’s and four sacks. He makes his entrance at #19.

One of the most productive defensive athletes in the Palmetto State this past season was hybrid DE/OLB Patrick Godbolt of Blythewood (S.C.). Godbolt, who comes in at #22, paced the Bengals with 74 tackles, 25 TFL’s and 12 sacks. At 6-foot-2, 205-pounds he most likely projects as an outside backer at the next level.

Junior signal caller Davis Beville of Greenville (S.C.) is the biggest mover and shaker, ascending 11 spots to #21. In 13 games Beville completed 195 of 322 passes for 2,530 yards and 38 touchdowns versus just six picks. He also added 377 yards rushing and five scores. Beville picked up his first Power Five offer recently from Pitt.

Dynamic all-purpose back Michel Dukes jumps one spot to #6. This past season he ran for over 1,600 yards and 31 touchdowns in leading Charleston (S.C.) First Baptist to the SCISA-AA State Title. His performance to the Championship game was one for the ages as he rushed for 170 yards and four scores in bringing the Canes back from a 20-point deficit.

The next edition of the 2019 Palmetto State Player Rankings will take place after National Signing Day, which takes place February, 7.
