Pooler, Georgia – This past Saturday 75 players from in and around the “912” participated in the third annual Explosive Southern Pigskin Football Camp held at the Pooler Recreation Complex. Each participant took part in agility drills, position work and one-on-one competition. They were also tested in the infamous 40-yard dash.
Below are the top prospects as seen by RecruitGeorgia.com and SouthernPigskin.com Recruiting Analyst Barry Every. Taken into consideration were size, length, athletic ability, performance and most importantly long term potential.
Let’s face it, one event should never dictate the future a young man’s potential on the gridiron. But it is a small gauge or sneak peak of their ability to grab the attention of college recruiters.
In the recruiting process there are three areas that college coaches take into consideration when determining whether to offer a perspective student athlete a scholarship. Game film, transcripts and character will be evaluated.
An athlete’s ability to make plays on the field and how it translates to the next level is paramount. College coaches are looking for difference makers regardless of position. Size, speed, overall athleticism and production will be deduced from the tape.
Coaches will also pick up academic reports during the spring evaluation period. The transcripts are then sent to the academic wing of the university to be evaluated. A bad transcript can seriously jeopardize a college’s ability to recruit a prospect.
Coaches will also talk to high school counselors and coaches to asses a student athlete’s character. Bad conduct on or off the field will most likely send red flags and could limit a college’s eagerness to offer a scholarship.
All athletes need to be conscious that there are other factors that can ultimately determine who can and can’t recruit you!
