Five of the AJC’s 2017 Super 11 members are committed to college teams. The trend of early commitments peaked in 2009, when every Super 11 member was committed (although two changed their minds before signing). It wasn’t until 1998 that any Super 11 committed in preseason. Who was the 1998 early commit? Hint: This McEachern player chose Tennessee. (Answer Tuesday)
Answer to Friday’s question: Sports Illustrated last week published a story that ranked the 100 best college football players. Six are former Georgia high school players. Their high schools are Hapeville Charter and M.L. King (No. 7 Arden Key of LSU); Hillgrove (No. 14 Bradley Chubb of N.C. State); North Gwinnett (No. 58 Mitch Hyatt of Clemson); Westover (No. 62 Trenton Thompson of Georgia); Cedartown (No. 66 Nick Chubb of Georgia); and Richmond Hill (No. 97 Nick Fitzgerald of Mississippi State). Note: Fitzgerald was inadvertently left out of Friday’s original question.
