It's a good year for talent in the state of Georgia, and, like always, a good number of the top prospects come from small but fanatical football towns.

After a couple of trips through the state, I can't say that I found any future All-Americans at the quarterback position, but Tray Rutland from East Point Tri-Cities is one player worth keeping an eye on. The elusive 6-foot-2, 205-pounder is called the ultimate playmaker by opposing coaches very fast elusive. Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Mississippi State and Tennessee are on his list.
