Georgia State football continues to dish out offers to prospects in Georgia and Florida for the 2012 recruiting cycle as the last day of the contact cycle came to a close. QB Nathan Schuster, WR Jason Croom, CB Aaron Sibley, OG Jamal Gay, C Fred Zerblis and DE Raynard Felton are the latest high school prospects to be given offers.
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:
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.
This is his first public offer to this point.
Croom is a 6'4, 212lbs is a 4 star wide receiver from Norcross HS and may be the highest profile member of the 2012 recruiting class to have an offer from the Panthers coaching staff. He is a dynamic pass catcher who reminds many of Calvin Johnson with his big play ability. Croom has an impressive list of offers including Florida State, LSU Auburn, Arkansas and a litany of other big programs.
Sibley is a 5'10, 165lbs defensive back from Stone Mountain HS who is highly productive and projects as a cornerback at the collegiate level. He put up impressive numbers for a loaded team in 2010 with 104 tackles, 5 sacks and 3 INTs. This is his first public offer to this point.
Gay is a 6'3, 272lbs offensive guard from Florida State University HS in Tallahassee. He played left tackle in 2010 but projects as a offensive guard at the collegiate level. Gay has the frame to easily hold an additional 15-20lbs with college level strength and conditioning. This is his first public offer to this point.
Zerblis is a 6'2, 290lbs center from Grayson HS and interest continues to pick up. He has an excellent frame and could play both guard positions or center at the collegiate level. He also holds offers from UAB, Arkansas State and Western Kentucky.
Felton is a 6'5, 225lbs strongside defensive end from Ribault HS in Jacksonville, Florida. He has an excellent first step and strength from the strongside position. Felton also played tight end for the Trojans and has very good hands. This is his first public offer to this point but has interest from Georgia Tech and Kentucky, Syracuse and other FBS programs.
The Panthers coaching staff, led by Bill Curry, is expected to sign 15-18 players in February.
