Here are six of Georgia's best

4:01 p.m. Thursday, October 9, 2008

Most of the state’s elite senior players have made their college commitments, and many of the best juniors are beginning to get offers. Here are six of the top juniors who will be part of the signing class of 2010: DT Denzel McCoy, Northview: This 6-4, 275-pound lineman is a key target for Georgia Tech and Georgia. He’s got a dozen offers. He’s comparable to former teammate Cordian Hagans, an AJC Super 11 now at LSU, but is more suited to the interior. WR Markeith Ambles, Henry County: Could Henry County have the best receiver prospect two years in a row? Teammate Ambles is the teammate of AJC Super 11 player Jamal Patterson, who has committed to Stanford. Ambles, a 6-1, 185-pounder, has offers from a dozen schools and has visited Georgia and Georgia Tech for games. WR Antonio Goodwin, Washington: A lanky receiver (6-2, 170) with exceptional speed, Goodwin is the next in a line of big-time prospects from his school behind current Super 11 cornerback Branden Smith, Georgia safety Reshad Jones and Oklahoma All-America lineman Duke Robinson. DT Jeffrey Whitaker, Warner Robins: The state’s best defensive tackle this year is Northside’s Abry Jones. Next year, it could be another player in the city of Warner Robins. Clemson, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee are among those who have made offers to Whitaker, a 6-3, 295-pound lineman. Strength is his calling card. He can squat more than 550 pounds. CB Steven Atwater, GAC: His father, Steve Atwater Sr., was an All-Pro safety for the Denver Broncos. The son is a cornerback with the same hitter mentality but with more speed. He’s 5-10, 175. He has offers from Arkansas, his father’s alma mater, and Clemson. S Alec Ogletree, Newnan: Ogletree got scholarship offers from LSU and Arkansas last week. He’s got about 15 in all. He’s a 6-foot-3, 215-pounder who could emerge as the top defensive prospect in Georgia next year. Others offers have come from Miami, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Clemson

Alabama, Florida try to sway Tennessee LB recruit

11:31 p.m. Monday, September 29, 2008

Stephenson linebacker Nigel Mitchell-Thornton says he doesn’t mind inquiries from other schools, even though he has committed to Tennessee and plans to enroll early at Knoxville. Alabama, Florida and Stanford are among the schools still contacting the 6-foot-3, 225-pound linebacker, but he’s still “pretty solid with Tennessee.” He said recruiters from those schools told him they’d be interested in possibly offering him a scholarship if his relationship with Tennessee changes. “I’m pretty much OK with them calling,” Mitchell-Thornton said. “You never know how things might end up.” Mitchell-Thornton has been to two Tennessee games (vs. UAB and Florida), but won’t take an official visit there until perhaps December. He also has reached out to other Tennessee recruits via phone and text messages to get to know them better.

SWD's Johnson hopes for Fla. offer

11:42 p.m. Monday, September 22, 2008

SWD's Johnson hopes for Florida offer Southwest DeKalb running back Michael Johnson has offers from Eastern Michigan and Akron, but he’s hoping that his regular contact with Florida could mean something bigger. The 5-foot-10, 190-pound senior says the Gators have stayed in contact since he had a 45-minute talk with Florida running backs coach Kenny Carter last spring. There’s been no offer, but Johnson thinks Florida is very interested. “I’m hoping they can turn [an offer] out for me,” he said. Johnson plans visits to Florida and Eastern Michigan, but has not scheduled one.

How It Went: Lopsided loss doesn't spoil Amble's visit to Knoxville

4:50 p.m. Sunday, September 21, 2008

Henry County’s Markeith Ambles was among the group who exited Neyland Stadium during the fourth quarter of Tennessee’s 30-6 loss to Florida on Saturday. Aside from witnessing a Gators romp, the junior receiver liked what he saw in Knoxville during the weekend. “It was awesome and real loud,” said Ambles, an AJC’s The Georgia Top 150 choice. “They’ve got a lot of new facilities there. “[Despite the loss], it was still a nice experience.” Ambles has scholarship offers from programs such as Alabama, Auburn, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. He plans to attend Saturday night’s Alabama-Georgia game in Athens.

Big-time recruits line up to attend Georgia Tech game on Saturday

10:16 p.m. Tuesday, September 16, 2008

With No. 3 Georgia playing on the West Coast this weekend, Georgia Tech’s home game against Mississippi State will be front-and-center for many of the area’s top recruits. Flowery Branch defensive end Izaan Cross, Eastside quarterback Justin Wray and Salem offensive lineman Sam Watts are among the players who have indicated they plan to attend Saturday afternoon’s Georgia Tech-Mississippi State contest at Bobby Dodd Stadium. Cross, who has a scholarship offer from the Jackets, is considering several programs including Clemson and Tech. Wray, who has been offered by Central Florida, is eager to see if the Jackets will follow suit and do the same this weekend. “We’re just talking right now,” he said of his scholarship chances with Tech. Watts will cheer for the Bulldogs. He committed to Mississippi State during the summer. Milton running back Toney Williams, who committed to Tennessee in May, will travel to Knoxville on Saturday to watch the Volunteers host Florida. He’ll likely bump into Stephenson linebacker Nigel Mitchell-Thornton, a Tennessee commit who intends to drive to Neyland Stadium after his team returns home from Waycross early Saturday morning. Stephenson plays at Ware County Friday evening. Henry County quarterback Drew Little doesn’t have a visit scheduled this weekend, but he does plan to drop in on an ACC program next month. “Boston College is very interested in me,” he said. “I plan on visiting there in about four weeks.” Each player is a member of the AJC’s The Georgia Top 150.
