*Snubbed: Colquitt County and Cherokee. Region 1 champion Colquitt will be good, as usual, but they lack a sure-fire all-state player from a preseason perspective. As for Cherokee, had there been a second team, at least four Warriors would’ve made it.
*Underrated: Zakye Barker, Norcross. This linebacker’s tackle numbers last year were as good as those of teammate Jalen Garner, the AJC’s Class 7A defensive player of the year. Barker is committed to East Carolina.
*What else is new: North Cobb has three first-team picks, two that came from Brookwood. They are WR Denylon Morrissette and DB Marquis Groves-Killebrew. Both are committed to Georgia. Two other Power 5 recruits, WR Sam M’Bake and DB Andre Stewart, also moved in. North Cobb plays Milton on Aug. 27.
