Creekview’s Michael Shaw was the first to arrive at the Kennesaw Taco Mac for the inaugural National Signing Day Frenzy with his head coach Terry Crowder and his immediate family. Shaw signed to the Air Force Academy and was the start to a parade of signees, mostly from Cobb County, that made their way to the stage.

Cedartown five-star running back Nick Chubb and his Bulldogs teammate Tyler Prewett were early guests that announced their signings. Chubb inked with the Georgia Bulldogs and Prewett signed with Pikeville College.

Walton sent D.J. Smith to South Carolina, Price Wilson to Louisiana Tech and Ridge Gibson to Furman. East Paulding head coach Chuck Goddard then introduced defensive ends Connor Christian and Chris Guinn, who both signed with Savannah State.

Class AAAAAA semifinalist Hillgrove brought a massive 11-person class that sent signees across the southeast. Defensive lineman Bradley Chubb led the bunch and signed to N.C. State. North Cobb had four signees and sent safety Cameron Albright to UNC.

Mike Rogers is one of the top safeties in the nation and signed with the University of Central Florida on Wednesday. Rogers has family down in Orlando, Fla. and said he was looking forward to being close by them next season.

Cobb County sent six players into the ACC, including Kennesaw Mountain defensive end Taariq Shabazz (pictured above), who signed with the Duke Blue Devials.

Kennesaw State signees and future teammates McKenzie Billingslea, Jace White, Jae Bowen, Chandler Burks and Taylor Henkle were among the Owl signees that celebrated the Owls’ inaugural class just a couple of football fields from their future campus.
