Georgia State Football continues to rock and roll on the recruiting trail this summer as they've grabbed three promising offensive prospects from Georgia high schools. Per Eric Niebuhr of Rivals.com, ATH Nathan Schuster of Chattooga HS, OG Garrett Gorringe of Grayson HS and OT Trevor Flannigan of Trion HS have verbally committed to the Panthers. These give the second year team nine commits before the end of July.
Schuster is a 6'2, 200 dual threat quarterback from Chattooga HS in north Georgia. The Rome News and Tribune recognized him as an All Area player for his 2010 season:
Schuster was the unquestioned leader of the Indians offense at quarterback. He led the team in touchdowns, had five games of more than 100 yards rushing and accounted for more than 500 yards combined rushing and passing against Gordon Central.
Nathan also played strong safety and is a very good athlete playing baseball and basketball for the Indians. He is being recruited as an athlete for the Panthers and is a more than capable runner.
Gorringe is a 6'5, 270 pound offensive tackle prospect who has great hands, feet and a high ceiling. He was primarily utilized at left guard for the Rams in 2010 and has the frame to carry 295-300 pounds with college level strength and conditioning. Has very good mechanics when pass protecting and does a very good job getting his hands on the defensive player and maintaining his block. According to Paul Jones of BulldogBlitz.com, he also held offers from UAB, Ball State and Charlotte.
Flannigan is a 6'4, 270 pound offensive tackle prospect who is another under the radar guy who plays at a smaller school. According to his head coach David Humphreys, Trevor had active interest from Georgia, Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt, Middle Tennessee, FCS schools: Samford, Eastern Ky, Tenn. Tech., Air Force, Navy and several Ivy League Schools. In 2010, the Chattanooga Times Free Press named Trevor an All Georgia Offensive pick and mentioned that he graded out at 90 percent for the 2010 season and amassed 30 pancake blocks on the year. He is also an All-Area caliber wrestler who knows how to mix it up in the trenches.
Schuster, Gorringe and Flannigan join verbal commits Safety Alex Reason, RB Jonathan Jean-Bart, WR Robert Theus, LB Joseph Peterson, OG Aaron Thomas and OLB Bryan Williams this month. Georgia State football is expected to sign 18-20 players next February.
