Recruiting Scorecard for Georgia State


Commitments: 20

Expected class size: 19-21

Star recruit: Richard Hallman, a 6-4 receiver from Hillgrove. The pressure is on Georgia State to make a big impression during this weekend's official visit. Hallman will go on a trip next week to Troy, which has made him a top recruiting priority. He committed to the Panthers in July.

News of the week: A major overhaul is underway as 17 new players started classes Monday. They will be ready for spring practice. This group includes eight junior-college players and six UAB transfers, along with three signees from last year who gray-shirted.

Key visitors: Konnor Houston, an outside linebacker from Buford, will take an official visit this week, per Houston is the brother of UGA offensive lineman Kolton Houston.

What to feel good about: Unless some bigger schools try to poach its recruits (and set off a chain of events), Georgia State is almost done with this year's class.

What to worry about: Kelvin Rainey, an inside linebacker from Iowa Western, has signed his letter of intent but hasn't reported to campus.

Quote of the week: "With 17 guys in, I think this class is probably more close to being done at this point than any other in Georgia State's five-year history. We're three weeks away from signing day, and the class is essentially done numbers-wise. It's a credit to having a huge number of early enrollees." —'s Ben Moore
