Georgia Tech legacy talks about Jackets, UGA, Auburn

Every year a little-known junior from Georgia participates in the all-star football game, and rockets to recruiting stardom.

A couple of years ago, it was Milton High School defensive end Carl Lawson who went into the game with no offers and blew away the competition. He was later bombarded with college scholarship offers, ended up ranked as the nation’s No. 2 overall prospect by ESPN, and signed with Auburn.

This year’s biggest surprise at the RisingSeniors game was Jayson Stanley, a 6-foot-, 205-pound wide receiver at Creekside High School. He dominated the practices and caught two long touchdowns in the game.

You don’t have to be a college coach to know he’s something special. One scout called Stanley “a combination of Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin.”

It’s a special year in Georgia with WR Preston Williams but I’d put Stanley at No. 2.

Stanley has early offers from UNC Charlotte and Marshall, but you can expect to things to catch on fire over the next month.

  • Could UGA be his next offer? Stanley said the Bulldogs “talk amazing over the phone.”
  • What about Georgia Tech? His father played football for the Yellow Jackets.
  • Which Clemson player does Jayson idolize?
  • Which schools would he love to be evaluated by?

Stanley talks about that and more in the above video.

UPDATE: After Jayson taped this video, he got offers from Auburn and Kentucky. Buckle up for a wild spring for this kid.
