SP Recruiting Expert Barry Every's initial ranking of the top 45 players in South Georgia for the Class of 2022.

With signing day for the class of 2020 less than a week away, what better time to breakout Version 1.0 of the South Georgia Player Rankings. The initial rankings start off as a Top 45 with 16 of these South Georgia Gems already garnering at least one FCS or FBS offer.

The goal of the South Georgia Player Rankings is to increase the visibility of as many deserving players  that happen to live in a remote region in the Peach State. Let’s face it, most out-of-state recruiters land at Hartsfield-Jackson and simply stay in a one-hour radius of the airport.

To be considered for this list an athlete must have played significant varsity reps as  a sophomore. Being on this list does not guarantee future success, as does not being on this list ensure failure. Remember the number one thing, outside of football, that an athlete can do to improve their recruiting is taking care of work in the classroom.

Taking the top spot in the initial South Georgia Player Rankings is Bainbridge (Ga.) two-way standout Deyon Bouie. As a freshman he helped guided the Bearcats to the GHSA-AAAAA Title with 349 all-purpose yards, 31 tackles, 12 PBU’s and six INT’s. Two of his aerial thefts were returned for touchdowns.

As a sophomore Bouie caught 28 passes for 510 yards and six touchdowns while adding five PBU’s and three more picks to his already impressive total. He currently holds 13 offers which include Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Tennessee and South Carolina.
