Jamaree Salyer moves people.
That’s it in a nutshell really. The football stuff would just be the surface definition there.
Salyer, the 5-star offensive guard prospect, is the nation’s highest-rated offensive line prospect this year. Period. That’s all the centers, offensive guards and those ultra-valuable offensive tackles across America.
The 6-foot-4, 340-pound prospect attends Pace Academy in Metro Atlanta. That’s one of the finest schools in the country he stars on his transcript shine bright enough for him to receive athletic scholarships to both Notre Dame and Stanford.
Yet with Salyer, the stars on his transcript shine bright enough for him to also receive athletic scholarships to both Notre Dame and Stanford. Not just the football factories.
That’s a very impressive accomplishment for a player who is also the highest-rated prospect at center or guard since 2006.
UGA is in the thick of the race for Salyer. Clemson, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Stanford also belong in that discussion, too.
But really that’s not the half of it. SEC Country Studios has chosen Salyer for its first documentary series spotlighting one of the top players in SEC Country because he checks every box for a storyline that’s more than just football.
- What makes him tick?
- What has been his journey?
- Did he have this potential a few years ago?
- What is he like both on and off the field?
- What drives him?
- Does he miss a block? What happens when he does?
- What role did his position coach play in his development?
We will learn the answers to all those questions about Salyer this fall.
What this will be about
SEC Country Studios will follow Salyer all season long at Pace Academy. We’ll track the highs and lows and also the everyday life of an elite college prospect. What does all this recruiting attention mean to him? What does he really think about those schools?
That material will be in there but we also hope to show a side of Salyer in the film room or walking to class.
We owe a very special thanks to the Pace Academy coaching staff for placing their faith in us to tell his entire story. Not just where he is going to school and how good he is going to be one day.
