CORKY KELL RECRUITS PREVIEW  
By Craig Sager II
 

Corky Kell participants highly sought out after by colleges

 

  

 

In 2013, the Metro PCS Corky Kell Classic will mark its 22nd year of existence. In the history of the Classic, hundreds of future college athletes have suited up and the individual performances from these extraordinary athletes add an exciting aspect each year.

Sonny Kennedy

 

The 2013 lineup consists of the same 10 teams as last year: Kell, Chattahoochee, Walton, Peachtree Ridge, Colquitt County, Grayson, North Gwinnett, Camden County, Brookwood and McEachern. More than 31 seniors that played in the Classic last season are suiting up for major college programs this fall.

 

The 2012 Corky Kell Classic featured college signees Robert Nkemdiche (Ole Miss) Tyren Jones (Alabama), Parker McLeod (Alabama), Brandon Kublanow (Georgia), Anthony Price (Rice), Bryce Ramsey (Georgia), Brendan Langley (Georgia), Quincy Mauger (Georgia), Travis Marshall (Navy), Donnie Miles (North Carolina), DeVondre Seymour (Georgia), Jalen Brooks (Maryland), Alex Stoehr (Georgia State), Octavius Jackson (Florida), Bobby Hill (Ole Miss), Johnny Ward (South Florida), Shaun McGee (Georgia), Kyrin Priester (Clemson), Adam Ledford (Harvard), Wayne Gallman (Clemson), Zach Barnes (Texas Tech), Kasey Gaines (Penn State), David Kamara (Ole Miss), Ryan Carter (Clemson), Jack Banda (Arizona), Jujaun Dulaney (Maryland), Ty Griffin (Ga Tech), Tony Porter (Ohio), Daniel Stephens (Middle Tennessee), J.J. Green (Georgia), Jarrad Davis (Florida) and J.P. Vonashek (South Carolina).

 

That list puts the level of competition into perspective, and also preps the stage for another talented group of players. Walton is sparked by defensive back and playmaker D.J. Smith. The senior is narrowing down his multiple SEC and ACC offers and will be a big-play option when combined with the accurate passing of Raiders quarterback Price Wilson, who committed to Louisiana Tech in June.

 

Peachtree Ridge features safety and ex-Georgia commit Nick Glass. On the offensive side of the ball, Peachtree Ridge is privileged to have some of the best skill players in the state including running back Jordan Ellis, who is committed to Virginia, and athlete Myron Burton, who holds offers from Vanderbilt, Clemson, Georgia State and UNC-Charlotte. Orlando Brown anchors the offensive line for the Lions and is committed to Tennessee.

 

Kell has defensive tackle Donnell Greene and Kennesaw State commit Taylor Henkle. The Chattahoochee offense will feature wide receiver Collin Lisa who is committed to UAB.

 

Grayson replaces 21 starters this season and will have a new lineup of talented prospects. The Rams have allowed a state-best 9.0 points per game over the last two seasons. Offensively, Grayson will have to control the line of scrimmage against Colquitt County's Jamiyus Pittman, who is committed to Ole Miss. Packers receiver Todd Boyd and lineman Gabe Mobley are both pledged to Georgia State.

 

North Gwinnett defensive end Dante Sawyer is ranked by many recruiting services in the top 10 in Georgia's Class of 2014. Wideouts Caleb Scott and Nate Brown are both college bound, and running back C.J. Leggett is narrowing down his college choices. Junior offensive tackle Mitch Hyatt is said to be the best player at his position in the junior class.

Camden County starting cornerback Kalvaraz Bessent and safety Chris Williams are both Alabama-bound. Defensive end Anthony Johnson is committed to FIU.

 

The Brookwood-McEachern matchup will feature two talented running backs. The Broncos' Josh Brown holds offers from Arizona, Buffalo and Furman, while McEachern junior running back Taj Griffin sets the pace for the Indians.

 

McEachern defensive end Henry Famurewa is committed to Louisville and senior quarterback Ty Clemons is holding scholarship offers from Kentucky and Louisville. Chuma Edoga is a junior offensive tackle with offers from North Carolina, Florida, Auburn, Tennessee and Georgia.

As the players race out of the tunnels in the Georgia Dome on Aug. 24, the familiar sight of college coaches and recruiters on the sidelines will once again appear.
