Lithia Springs quarterback Kelton Hill Jr., a member of the AJC's updated The Georgia 150, was close to committing to Georgia State before the Panthers got a commitment from Henry County's Drew Little, his father, Kelton Hill Sr., said. The two quarterbacks employ different styles: Little, who fell just short of the state's career passing yardage record, is a pocket passer, while Hill considers himself a dual threat as both a passer and a runner. "Georgia State's not going to have a lot of great linemen," said Hill Jr., "and Drew isn't going to get away from pressure like I can." Hill Sr. said his son decided to wait on his commitment to the Panthers because of the decided differences in style. "They were talking to us about running the spread to take advantage of his running ability and moving the pocket, things like that," Hill Sr. said. "It kind of felt like a mixed message." Hill Jr. is planning visits to Middle Tennessee, Georgia State, Jacksonville (Ala.) State, Alabama State and Charleston Southern.
Lithia Springs linebacker Justin Marable is hoping his 25 tackles for loss will look good enough on tape to overcome a stat he can do nothing about -- his size. The 5-foot-10, 210-pounder has no official offers, though he has visits planned to Alabama State, Georgia Southern and Valdosta. Previous reports of offers from Illinois, Indiana, Akron and Army were unfounded, he said. "I don't know where that came from. I'd be interested, but no one's offered yet." Some of them told me they were going to, but none of them has yet, and I guess it's because I'm a little undersized. I had a really good senior season, and hopefully when they get game tapes they'll see something."
Lithia Springs defensive tackle Bryan Davis, who has offers from Georgia Southern and Alabama State, said he's recently been contacted by Georgia Tech. "I went to one of their lineman camps," said Davis, a member of the AJC's The Georgia 150. "they wanted me for the offensive line and not the defensive line." Davis said Tech assistant Brian Bohannon told him he was behind other players the Yellow Jackets' are recruiting, but that if those players opt to go elsewhere, he could get an offer." Meanwhile, he recently took an unofficial visit to Louisville and he's waiting on an offer from the Cardinals. "I'll play both sides," he said. "It doesn't matter. I just want to play.
