    I can't find their 2019 schedule, may not be released yet. There was a 2016 article talking about how their tough schedule helps attract top talent (I imagine w/ a roster stacked like that they are doing some questionable recruiting).

    Here's another article I came across (Texas offered FOUR kids off that team!):

    Texas extends four new 2019 offers at one Georgia high school

    Here's their 2017 schedule:

    http://www.maxpreps.com/high-schools/grayson-rams-(loganville,ga)/football/schedule.htm

    They opened w/ Hoover (AL), played John Curtis (LA), Ramsey HS (AL), and a school from Broward (FL) that they killed 74-0.

    Wow. That's ALOT of talent. Sounds like a few schools I can think of in Florida. Questionable recruiting tactics says alot about the coach.

    Edit: Christian Hunnicut is a UGA grad and has coached at some big time GA schools such as Buford (won 7 state titles at buford), Lowndes, previously at Grayson, Gwinnet, etc.. the coach actually sounds like a very good coach.

    Dude, they killed people last year. They lost to Archer 6-3 on 10/13. All I can think of is a hurricane came through or mass suspensions for them to only score 3 points. Then they lost their last game by a rd. Not sure if it was in the State semis/finals....I've never heard of the international school of broward! Lol 74-0 yeesh

    I would've loved to see them play Hoover or John Curtis. I can only assume they'll play at least 2 big time games this year too.

    To me, it'd be funny to have 2 QBs roughly the same size named Jones and 2 Lbs named Reese. (I realize how common Jones is but I also think it would be cool to have both especially if Jalon can play anything like Emory)

    Reading through this thread again (because I love reading what I wrote) but this post is still funny to me!

    This is likely our QB in this class. I suspect he gets a 4th star and cracks the top 300. Not the high ranking recruit we'd hope for, but he's got a strong relationship w/ Mullen and committed to him at MSU. The kid Burrow at IMG is another prospect we have a shot at.

    Another thing w/ this kid is he's from Baltimore. There is a ton of talent in the DMV area.

    I met this kid at my gym tonight. There's a lot of "sports performance" trainers there and a lot of athletes work out there (it's a One Life Fitness in Alexandria, VA). He was wearing a DeMatha HS Football t-shirt and I asked him if he played ball there. He said yes, and that he plays DB and WR. He had an Ohio State backpack w/ him (it looked kind of cheap, like something he maybe got at a camp) and had a Maryland lanyard around his neck. I asked him if he's being recruited....he says, "I have an Ohio State offer". I said, "Wow, that's awesome!" Then I told him I'm a UF grad and that I follow Ohio State because of Meyer being a former UF coach. Anyhow, he was a nice kid. I asked him his name....and looked him up later. Dude is a 4-star, ranked #61 overall recruit in the country!

    Help me out man, I'm struggling with the name Burrow at IMG. I have nothing on him. Is he transferring in this year?

    The kid's tape looks pretty good. Though it's tough judging a QB by just watching highlights.

    should have slipped the kid $50 and told him there's plenty more where that came from if he makes the right decision, wink wink.

    I agreed to the part of being confused until I saw the pic, not about your sharpness
