The final countdown
Georgia powers take part in year's final ESPN High School Football Showcase
Much was made of the arrival of Kingsland (Ga.) Camden County to the already brutal Region 1-AAAAAA. But the Wildcats had dominated their competition so far this season, outscoring the opposition 369-45 in eight games.
ESPN 150 quarterback and Georgia commit Brice Ramsey will try to lead Camden County, which is No. 9 in the ESPN 25 Power Rankings, to a key road victory on Friday when the Wildcats face fellow undefeated squad Valdosta (Ga.) Lowndes at 8 p.m. ET on ESPNU and WatchESPN.com. Both teams have won a combined eight state titles.
CAMDEN COUNTY (8-0)
QB Brice Ramsey, Class of 2013
Ramsey competed in the Charlotte NFTC, The Opening, Elite 11 and Champion Gridiron Kings over the summer, and the added reps have led to an efficient start to his senior season. The No. 8 pro style quarterback in the ESPN 150, Ramsey is 44 of 81 passing for 950 yards and 16 touchdowns with only one interception. He also has a rushing touchdown. Ramsey, committed to Georgia since July of 2011, also possesses one of the strongest legs in the state, averaging 42 yards per punt, making field goals of 36 and 39 yards and putting 43 of his 50 kickoffs into the end zone for touchbacks. Last year he made a 57-yard field goal.
Other Top Recruits
ATH J.J. Green, Class of 2013
The Georgia commitment does a little bit of everything for the Wildcats, with 58 rushes for 563 yards and seven touchdowns and five catches for 77 yards and one touchdown on offense. On defense, Green has 20 tackles, a sack and three interceptions, returning one 40 yards for a touchdown. He is dangerous on special teams as well, with a 99-yard kick return for a touchdown earlier this season.
LB Jarrad Davis, Class of 2013
Davis is an athletic linebacker who has 69 tackles, a team-leading 44 solo tackles and three forced fumbles, one of which he returned for a touchdown versus Valdosta (Ga.) High School. Davis is committed to Auburn.
OL J.P. Vonashek, Class of 2013
With a great frame and quick feet, the 6-foot-6, 260-pound offensive tackle and South Carolina commit possesses very high upside. Vonashek was injured for most of the summer and early on this season, but is back on the field opening up holes in the run game and protecting Ramsey when the Wildcats choose to pass.
CB Kalvaraz Bessent, Class of 2014
The 6-1, 180-pound defensive back emerged on the scene at the Corky Kell Classic in August, making an interception and eluding multiple tackles enroute to a 48-yard touchdown return. On offense, Bessent has 33 carries for 371 yards and four touchdowns, as well as five catches for 130 yards and two touchdowns. He has 14 tackles and three interceptions on defense, is getting interest from Florida and Georgia early on and has been invited to the Rising Seniors Junior Bowl program.
OL Trayvon Williams, Class of 2014
The 6-3, 300-pound junior was recently selected to the Rising Seniors Junior Bowl program, and is a prospect to keep an eye on over the next year.
CB Tiquan Lang, Class of 2013
Just like Green, Lang is an impact player in all three facets of the game for the Vikings. The South Alabama commitment has 39 rushes for 263 yards and five touchdowns on offense, 24 tackles, four interceptions, two passes broken up and one fumble recovery on defense and 443 yards on punt and kick returns. He missed last week with a sprained ankle, and is expected to be a game-time decision on Friday.
CB Brandon Roberts, Class of 2014
The 6-foot, 180-pound junior has 21 tackles, three interceptions and two passes broken up this year, and has a chance to be the next top recruit out of Lowndes.
LB Tre Jackson, Class of 2014
The 5-10, 220-pound linebacker has 37 tackles, a sack, two interceptions, two passes broken up and two fumble recoveries this year. He has been invited to the Rising Seniors Junior Bowl program.
