Barry Every's final ranking of the top 120 prospects in South Georgia for the Class of 2019.

The second and final signing period for football begins this coming Wednesday and ends April, 1 for FBS and FCS Schools. DII signees will have till August, 1 to make their final decision. During the early signing period, which ran from December, 19 through December, 21, FBS and FCS schools were the only NCAA Institutions that were allowed to sign high school athletes.

 

South Georgia had 47 football players ink Letter of Intents in the first signing period, 38 signed FBS while nine chose FCS schools. Three athletes chose one of the Service Academies, two with Army and one with Navy. Athletes that choose the Military Academies do not actually sign a Letter of Intent.

As of January, 31 there are 16 prospects in the South Georgia Player Rankings that have yet to sign and are verbally committed. Three are verbally committed to FBS colleges, seven with FCS, five with DII and one with a junior college.

A breakdown of signees/commits by conference sees the Sun Belt leading the way with 11 South Georgia Prospects. They are followed by the SEC (10), ACC (7), C-USA (7), AAC (3), BigTen (1), Big12 (1) and the MAC (1). An FCS breakdown has the Southern Conference in the top spot with six signees/commits. They are followed by the Big South (5), Pioneer League (3) and the OVC (2).

The FBS schools with more than two signees/commits from South Georgia are Georgia Southern with seven and Florida State with three. At the FCS level the only two colleges with more than two signees/commits south of the gnat-line are Kennesaw State and Mercer, each with three.

In the final version of the South Georgia Player Rankings there is only one new entry and that belongs to Blackshear (Ga.) Pierce County running back John Jones. As a senior, Jones scorched opponents for over 1,700 yards and 25 touchdowns while averaging nearly eight yards per carry. He also added 14 receptions for 146 yards and one touchdown. He currently has offers from Lenoir-Rhyne, Tennessee-Chattanooga, Tennessee Tech and Valdosta State. Jones makes his entry at #84.

There are currently six highly coveted prospects yet to make a decision. They are Leesburg (Ga.) Lee County safety/athlete Jammie Robinson (#6), Leesburg (Ga.) Lee County cornerback Tavian Mayo (#9), Moultrie (Ga.) Colquitt County offensive lineman Kamaar Bell (12), Moultrie (Ga.) Colquitt County cornerback Jay Ward (#15), Dublin (Ga.) defensive end Steven Linton (18) and Folkston (Ga.) Charlton County athlete Raykwon Anderson (#26).

This Friday marks the final official visit weekend prior to Signing Day. The Dead Period starts at midnight on February, 4 and runs through February, 7. During that time college coaches are not permitted to have contact with prospective student athletes and their parents, nor are they allowed to visit their schools. Coaches may write or telephone prospects and their parents during that period.

We wish everyone that has yet to sign the very best. Just remember next Wednesday is just the start of the second Signing Period. Players who choose to ink with NAIA Schools and JUCO’s are still able to change their mind and sign with NCAA FBS, FCS and DII colleges. Military Academies and DIII commits are also able to sign with NCAA FBS, FCS and DII schools as long as it’s within above mentioned Signing Period.
