Here are just some of the players from the area that have decided to put pen to paper today.

It’s not only been a privilege but an honor for Calvin, Jim and I to cover high school football recruiting in the 912. The Savannah and Coastal Georgia region has always been chalked full of gridiron talent but in years past, simply under recruited. Over the last two years colleges from all over the country have embraced this talent rich tract of land and now make frequent visits to South Georgia.

December, 19 starts the first singing period for the class of 2019; many of our beloved local legends have made their final decision. For the past year, or more, these athletes have been courted, prodded and swayed to make a decision on where they will play college football.

Now it’s time for them to sign the dotted line and for many the choice was not easy. We at SouthernPigskin.com will always hold dearly to their high school accomplishments. More importantly we are ecstatic that so many football players, from the 912, will get a chance to live out their childhood dream of playing college football while receiving a free education.

Below are just some of the players from this area that have decided to put pen to paper on this hallowed day. Each was asked what excited them about their future destination. Players are listed in alphabetical order by last name.
