HSSR Releases First Top 50 2021 Junior List, Nominations Being Sought To Expand This Early List

By Billy G. Baker


Moncks Corner—The HSSR is in the process of promoting an instate (SC) 2021 Prospects football list in response to a very limited list of only seven players put out by several national recruiting services on their web sites by the end of August. Most states in the Southeast boast 50 to 85 players listed on various website while the state of South is only represented by seven names and this is just not fair to the players in talent rich South Carolina.

(With so many games cancelled in the Pee Dee/Lowcountry this week die to the Hurricane all you recruiting buffs might want to get out of the area tonight and look at some of these juniors and sophomores we are sharing with you now. Great opportunity to travel and see other players with your favorite team not playing this week.)

One service has rated 247 players from the 2021 class from all-across the nation and they have 9 players from North Carolina on this list and none from South Carolina! One of their key employees lives in Charlotte and must spend most of his time focused on the Tar Heel state while ignoring some great high school football prospects just 15 miles south of where he resides. Another service has rated their Top 100 2021 prospects in the nation and again the state of North Carolina has five players rated while the state of South Carolina has none. (Wow!) 

Further research sees a 2021 Top 100 list already exists in the state of Florida with players rated 1 to 100 and around 15 are already committed and this is interesting because colleges (by rule) are not allowed to extend an official offer until September 1st of a player’s junior year.  The state of Georgia has over 60 players on their publicly released 2021 list while North Carolina is also pushing 60 on their public list as released by national recruiting services.  Meanwhile, the Palmetto state is showing just seven players listed from the 2021 class on most of these national recruiting websites. You can easily see why our 2021 class might not be getting a fair shake in the recruiting process.

If this is not alarming to high school football coaches in South Carolina (along with parents and the athletes themselves) I do not know what more needs to be said. The HSSR recently mailed the state’s only 96- page football tabloid to all 130 major college football programs in the nation.  In this issue we wrote of 24 players in the 2021 class we have verified for major college evaluation and we hope to release a Top 50 HSSR 2021 list in our next issue coming out around October 1st.  Over the years we have little contact with national recruiting services but soon we are going to start sending all of them our publication free of charge every month in the hopes that these people start being more objective in putting out lists.

Therefore, the HSSR needs high school head football coaches in SC to let us know about any 2021 or 2022 player on your team who is showing great major college potential after two games of the 2019 prep football season in South Carolina. Please let us know also if you have a late bloomer in the senior class as we update our Top 100 list all the time.  Your help in this matter is greatly appreciated.  We have enclosed an early list for your review.
