Donquell Green, ATH, Burke County
Green reported an offer from North Carolina to go with reported offers from Appalachian State, Georgia Southern, Georgia Tech and Marshall. Being listed generously at 5-foot-8 likely has hindered his recruiting.
Rodney Smith, RB, Mundys Mill
Smith didnt receive much interest because he was recovering from a torn ACL during his junior season. But after rushing for more than 700 yards in three playoff games, Smith received offers from Minnesota and Appalachian State to add to an offer from East Carolina. He committed to Minnesota.
Akebren Ralls, ATH, Mary Persons
Ralls had interest from Charlotte and some FCS programs early in football season, but bigger programs may be hesitant because hes about 5-8 and 170 pounds. Whoever lands Ralls will gain an electric playmaker. He has received attention lately from Ball State, Charleston Southern and Kennesaw State.
Dexter Knox, RB, Creekside
Knox had offers from Alabama State, Gardner-Webb, Georgia State and Mercer and then exploded for a state-record five touchdowns in the championship game. He received an offer from Purdue and committed almost immediately.
Ty Clemons, ATH, McEachern
Clemons had a standout senior season for one of the top teams in Class AAAAAA. He committed to Georgia Southern on Nov. 11 over offers from Buffalo, Ketucky, Louisville and Massachusetts but has now changed his commitment to Middle Tennessee State.
A.J. Bush, QB, Norcross
The quarterback of the state champions had offers from Cincinnati, Georgia State, Marshall, Temple and Troy through the championship game. Boston College offered in January.
Brooks Barden, QB, Cartersville
Barden signed with Charlotte before Christmas after passing for 2,382 yards and 42 touchdowns. His other offers were Arkansas State and Massachusetts.
Jaquez Parks, QB, Griffin
Parks only had offers from Air Force, Harvard, Mercer and Kennesaw State by the time his state championship performance ended -- he threw for 300 yards and rushed for 200 in the win. The Owls might be in the lead for the most under-recruited player in the state.
D.J. Sanders, DB, Washington County
Sanders committed to Middle Tennessee State back in September. But he had a stellar senior season and a huge state championship game. He also received offers from Appalachian State, Marshall, Mercer and UAB. Georgia Tech has shown interest lately.
Melvin Hill, RB, Washington County
Hill had offers from Chattanooga and Kennesaw State after rushing for 1,793 yards and 33 touchdowns. He committed to Chattanooga.
Cortez Broughton, DL, Veterans
Broughton committed to Middle Tennessee State back in July, but after that the Veterans defensive tackle led the Warhawks to the best season in program history. He took an official visit to Cincinnati on Jan. 18.
Chandler Burks, QB, South Paulding
Burks had an all-state senior season, but in June he became the first player to commit to Kennesaw State. A little undersized, Burks hasnt added any official offers since, according to 247Sports.
A.J. Wells, K/P, Marion County
Wells is headed to Middle Tennessee State, but he might have been the best punter in any classification this year. His performance pinning Charlton County constantly inside the 20-yard line probably helped insure the Class A public school championship for the Eagles.
Latrell Gibbs, CB, North Cobb
Gibbs, an all-state pick, has a bevy of offers from FCS programs and ones from Ball State, Georgia Southern and Temple. Gibbs is committed to Appalachian State.
