B2C Prime 100 – Class of 2019 (Georgia)

The summer has given a number of players the opportunity to step their game up and evidence of their hard work is represented in the rankings as there is a new #1 player in the state of Georgia.  Nolan Smith has proven over and over again that he has no equal. Nolan is one of the few players that can be placed on a team and instantly have an impact no matter the scheme.  Defensive lineman have been a popular trend in the Peach State which was all started with Robert Nkemdiche at Grayson, then Lorenzo Carter at Norcross and Justin Mascoll at South Gwinnett.  Nolan Smith hops right in line as a very similar prospect to the latter two with his ability to change the game from the DE position.  Let’s take a look at the rest of the B2C Prime 100 list to see how it shapes out.

 

OFEENSE

 

Quarterback

Ross Malmgren

Ross Malmgrem continues to be the #1 QB in this class out of GA.  He is a smart, accurate QB, who is getting bigger and stronger which was always the knock on him.  Now he is 6ft and entering high school with a knowledge of his offense like the back of his hand.  When he gets his chance to play he will lead his team to at least a semifinal run in the state playoffs and will likely put up monster numbers.

There may be those that are surprised at the next pick but it is Jordan Yates out of Milton.  No one fits their offense better than him.  Jordan is a solid passer but more of a playmaker and in Milton’s offense, they will let him showcase his athletic ability.  A relentlessly hard worker, Jordan will be physically prepared to step in and become a walking weekly highlight reel every time he graces the field.

Zach Calzada has to be one of the most overlooked players in the country.  Not a tall kid, standing at 5ft 9in but he comes from a family that has nothing but 6 footers in them so the height will eventually come.  As of right now he is the best pure passer in his class coming out of Georgia.  He is going to high school with a very talented group that includes Steele Chambers at RB and JD Bertrand at TE.  So he will have talent around him to get the job done.

Wide Receiver

The wide receiver position has a very talented group!  KJ Wallace is grouped with a different set of position athletes but if he was in the group, he’d be considered the #1 player, which let’s you know how good he was as he was the only WR in the top 5 that was under 6ft.  Now enter the giants.  Jaden Haselwood is a beast.  He has the total package – size, speed, leaping ability, hands and quickness.  Standing at 6ft 2in and weighing in at 190lbs, he is a terror out wide.  Nicolas Manson, an athletic freak, is right behind him.  The speed burner is scary because of his very raw  potential.  The combination of one year in high school and a good position coach along with the fact that he is a top 10 WR in the country means we are in for a very exciting season from him.  There is a rising player, Nance Hill, who is very good at high pointing the ball and competing with the best of them.  Brannon Spector who picked up an offer from Mercer is similar to Javanni Cunningham and Gabe Reeves – smaller receivers that create space due to their quickness.

 

Running Back

Paris Brown

 

 

 

 

Paris Brown is at the top of the list.  He is almost in a perfect situation.  The speedy back who is excellent at catching out of the backfield is going to fit right in with McEachern high octane offense.  Add to the fact that he has a four star lined up at QB and WR will only add to his success.  Last year B2C Ladainian Tomlinson RB of the Year award winner Jeremy Smith from Savannah is a terror with the ball in his hands.  At 5″11, 178 he has the frame to add weight as he will more than likely keep his speed because he is a big time track guy.  Steele Chambers from Blessed Trinity continues to get bigger and bigger.  Now he is 6ft, 190lb.  The big back is explosive and possess a mean stiff arm.  Runs very well behind his pads and is physical at the point of attack.  Most impressed by his feet as they help him get in and out of the hole very quickly.

 

Offensive Line

Harry Miller

 

 

 

Harry Miller is good and this offseason has done wonders for him.  The fact that he is will be attending Buford says a lot.  The recruiters might as well offer him right now.  Once Buford is done with him, he will be one of the top tackles in the country.  Keiondre Jones is right there with his unreal size.  He has a Sunday body already.  Alabama saw this and has already sent an offer his way and you know if Nick Saban sees something, then who are we to argue that.  Quentin Skinner is headed to Buford as well and as a center, he has no equal in Georgia or the Southeast.  As last year’s B2C Offensive Lineman of the Year, Skinner will anchor that line to another state championship when his time comes.

 

Tight Ends

JD Bertrand

There are two really good Tight Ends in this class and both can do it all.  JD Bertrand is consistent.  You can put him on the line to block for you, he runs good routes and catches the ball every time it touches his hands.  Ryland Goede has prototype size.  Already at 6ft 5in, he has the tools to be a productive player at that position.

 

DEFENSE

 

Defensive Line

Nolan Smith

We have already talked about Nolan Smith and he has justifiably earned the #1 spot.  Derrick McLendon is a very similar player and a super athlete at the DE position.  Tru Thompson was a little league legend for the North Henry Tigers and now Flordia State has seen the same thing in the Griffin resident as they offered him on the spot.  Already bench pressing 300lbs, the big kid can move.  With a dedication to his craft Thomspon can project to be a Warren Sap clone…and yes he is that good.

 

Linebacker

Owen Pappoe

 

 

 

Trevon Walker is a tackling machine.  Kevon Glen will have the sideline walking you through concussion protocol as he will literally knock you out of the game.  Those two in the middle are scary.    Outside Owen Pappoe is a genetic freak of nature.  For Georgia fans he will remind you of Boss Bailey with his tremendous athletic ability.  He has already picked up 11 offers and they are all well deserved as his potential is through the roof.  Kameron “The Bloodline” Brown has the football blood running through his veins.  He has one of the highest football IQ in his class besides Safety DJ Turner.  He is great against the run and the pass.  He can give you a 100 plus tackles, 3 interceptions and 2 sacks a season.  Yes they are very similar to Ray Lewis’ yearly numbers and that is whom he is being compared to because of how well he understands the game.  His brother Derrick Brown is one of the top defensive linemen in the country.  Xavier Billingsley and Charles Thomas are both two linebackers that can either play in the middle or outside.

Owen Pappoe Highlights

Defensive Backs

DJ Turner
DJ Turner

Jalen Alexander is still the #1 defensive back in the state.  No other player can have an impact in the pass game and run game like him.  In coverage, he can play whatever scheme you want.  In the run game, he will knock you out.  Already at 5ft 11in, once his body gets stronger, he will probably be the top defensive back in the country.  Malik Webb is another corner who can get it done.  He has the best man-to-man coverage skills in the state, always gets off a good punch on the WR and mirrors him step for step.  Nasier Currie-Sudler from McEachern is similar to Malik Webb and both have the same aggressive attitudes.  He is literally a player that players want to play with due to his passion for the game.  At Safety, you have two players that can be special.  At free safety, Jaylen McCullough is very productive.  He covers from sideline to sideline and possesses a very high football IQ.  His father was a DB in college and it looks like it has translated well into the 6’1 Safety.  At the strong safety position, Malik Washington is a monster.  He can pick off a ball and take it the distance and is also the best tackler in the 2019 class in the secondary besides DJ Turner out of North Gwinnett.  Speaking of DJ, overall he can help a team out a lot.  He can play outside at corner and he can also go back at Safety, make plays in the passing game and run the alley in the run game.

Future Stars Game Malik Washington is #2 in Black.  Start watching highlights at 8:50 mark

 

Athlete

KJ Wallace
KJ Wallace

You have two really good ones in KJ Wallace and Dominick Blaylock. Both have offers from SEC schools and play WR very well.  These guys can probably start from day one depending how they block in the running game.  The nod however, would have to go to Wallace as he is more polished at the position.  On defense Blaylock gets the nod, as he is better at Safety than KJ is at Corner.  In the return game it is a wash as both players can go from 0 to 100 real quick.  Intangibles have to go to KJ Wallace as he is a special player.  Of course we are splitting hairs as both are going to be very productive players and possibly significant contributors in college.  Going to be fun to see how these two develop.  Chris Hinton comes from a great bloodline.  Father was an All Pro lineman in the league.  Chris has continued the high family production on the field as he has the potential to be the #1 player in the country when it is all said and done.  He stands at 6″3, weighs 240 and can move.  On defense he is athletic enough to play MLB in a 4-3, can go outside and be a rush end in any scheme and can also play the run.  On offense he can put his hand in the dirt at TE and be productive or he can line up out wide and be a very consistent playmaker.  He is also one of the best basketball players in the country as well.  Ray Thornton out of Columbus might end up mainly playing WR but as of right now he is very productive on both sides of the field.  The 6″1 Thornton is special with the ball in his hands.
