Grayson High School’s football program has featured some of the most talented teams and prospects that have come out of the Peach State the past several seasons, and it’s already apparent that one of the most star-studded senior classes in the entire country will be leading the Rams this upcoming season. It’s been a busy offseason for this group of rising seniors, but the four highest-rated of the bunch came together this Tuesday at Sports and Social located in The Battery Atlanta to announce their college choices, putting the recruiting process behind them just days before the start of spring practice.

Headlined by Owen Pappoe, Grayson’s 5-star outside linebacker that has been receiving offers since the eighth grade, teammates Wanya Morris (OT), Kevin Harris (WDE) and Kenyatta Watson (CB) gave the occasion a 4-for-1 special. Watson, the No. 20 ranked overall prospect in the state pledged to Texas. Harris, ranked No 9 in the state committed to Alabama, and Morris, Georgia’s No. 8-ranked prospect committed to Tennessee. Pappoe capped the night by choosing Auburn over UGA and Tennessee, and becoming Grayson’s 11th Class of 2019 prospect to commit to a D1 program before the start of next season. Athlete and 3-star Ronald Thompkins is currently the only one of Grayson’s dozen prospects rated 3-stars or better that remains uncommitted, but he too has been deep in the recruiting process, receiving an offer from Alabama on March 5 and taking official visits to LSU and Penn State in April
