The Georgia State football coaching staff continues to comb the Southeast for talented prospects to fill the 2012 recruiting class. Fresh off their first four verbal commitments, the Panthers have extended offers to Collins Hill HS teammates Athlete Nick England and linebacker Jermichael Bailey and Trinity Episcopal (Natchez, MS) Athlete Jaborian McKenzie.
England is a 6'0, 170lbs athlete who played wide receiver in 2010 for the Eagles. I had a chance to catch up with Brandon Brigman of the Gwinnett Daily Post to discuss both Collins Hill prospects:
He's Gwinnett County's second leading returning receiver, but he'll probably see more time at running back this fall. He also has offers from Central Michigan, Troy, Florida International, which are fairly decent [FBS] programs.
Bailey is a 6'1, 210lbs outside linebacker prospect with a very agility and recognition skills.
Brigman's Breakdown on Bailey:
I think State has a really good shot with him, right now. His only other offer is from Wofford. His stock could rise, though, this fall as he's probably the best returning player on defense.
‘Tip' McKenzie is a 5'9, 175lbs athlete who plays running back, wide receiver and returns kicks for Trinity Episcopal. He had eye popping numbers in 2010 with 58 carries, 812 yards and 8 TDs on the ground and 35 catches for 797 yards and 14 TDs through the air. He has verbally committed to Southern Miss but the Panthers coaching staff is still recruiting him hard.
