125 Georgia players have committed to FBS schools

by: GHSF Daily Updated:

Cornerback Nick Ruffin (20) from St. Pius was one of UGA’s top in-state targets for its 2014 recruiting class.

It’s a long time until signing day in February, but most Georgia high school football players who will be playing at the Division I FBS level have made their decisions.

GHSF Daily counts 125 players who have commitments reported on Rivals.com or Scout.com. Only 23 players who are rated three stars or better by Rivals.com have not made their choices publicly.

Below is a list of the 125. First, a few facts:

*Stephenson has the most players committed with eight. Next are Camden County, Carrollton and Sandy Creek with four each.

*The colleges with the most Georgia commitments are in-state schools Georgia State (12) and Georgia (eight). Georgia Tech has six.

*The out-of-state college with the most Georgia commitments is Central Florida (seven). Next are Marshall and N.C. State (six each), Clemson and North Carolina (five each) and Mississippi State and Tennessee (four each).

*Several Georgia players are committed to Division I FCS schools, but those aren’t as reliably tracked, so we didn’t include those here. Two of note are Cartersville QB Brooks Barden (Charlotte) and Eagle’s Landing Christian QB Dalton Etheridge (Jacksonville State).

*Using Rivals’ rankings, the most highly recruited Georgia players (all four stars or above) who are not committed are CB D.J. Smith of Walton, DT Elisha Shaw of Tucker, DE Andrew Williams of Eagle’s Landing Christian, CB Wesley Green of M.L. King, DE Dante Sawyer of Norcross, DB Evan Berry of Creekview, WR Myles Autry and DE Lorenzo Carter of Norcross and LB Raekwon McMillan of Liberty County.
