A Look At Some Of The Top 2021 Football Prospects In SC, HSSR Still Feels National Services Overlooking SC In Favor Of Near-By States

By Billy G. Baker


Moncks Corner---This Country Green Turf football recruiting page is focused mainly at the 2021 football prospects class in South Carolina, a group of Palmetto state football prospects greatly under-valued by the national recruiting services and we stress this because at the same time the majority of them are putting out lists 50 to 100 deep on their websites in the states of North Carolina, Georgia, and Florida all while showing seven or so players from South Carolina in the same class.

This situation certainly caught the attention of “The High School Sports Report” the only combination publication/website ( in the nation devoted exclusively for the coverage and promotion of high school athletics in one state—that being the great prep football state of South Carolina.  We have been trying to communicate directly with these national recruiting services, and in the near future,  we hope to be able to share with our readership what we found out as to why services would largely ignore a state indexed over the years as the fourth best state in the nation per population/capita for NFL prospects.

Before we go any further the HSSR would like to thank Nevin Goff and Chuck Floyd from the beautiful Country Green Turf Farm in New Zion, SC. As we have stated before these two gentlemen are proud Clemson fans and they certainly breathed a sigh of relief when North Carolina failed in their two- point conversion attempt last Saturday that would have given them a 22-21 over the then top ranked Tigers. The goal posts in Keenan Stadium were also spared from being ripped from the ground also.

We are releasing an updated 2021 prospects lists in South Carolina with this issue. Once again, our Top 15 list is very strong with top rated BHP defensive back Braylin Oliver (6-2, 190) already committed to SEC power Georgia  

Our top wide receiver for the 2021 class is Dillon’s Ahamai Huggins-Bruce (6-0, 180-4.35). As a freshman in the state title game he caught around 8 passes for over 175 yards and two touchdowns. One of his catches in double coverage in the end zone was a circus catch (high in the air) freshman are not supposed to make, but the great ones show that NFL talent early. Huggins-Bruce is averaging 21.2 yards a catch early in the 2019 season.  According to head coach Jackie Hayes the speedster has 8 offers to date. They include Miami, Wake Forest, Louisville, East Carolina, West Virginia, Virginia Tech, Duke, an Appalachian State.

“Ahmari is a playmaker and he had an 87-yard kick-off return against Marlboro County just last week and he put a spin move on to avoid two tacklers and he was down the sideline untouched after that,” said Coach Hayes. “He is not as big as Derrick Hamilton was, but he is faster. He has great hands, catches the ball at a high point, and he runs precision routes and he is always where he is supposed to be.  In college we project he will be moved to a slot receiver and he will be a night- mare for linebackers to cover across the middle I can promise you.”

Our number three rated player right now in the 2021 class is Chapin guard/tackle Thornton Gentry (6-5, 290, 5.1) and he started to be coached up literally from his baby crib being the son of a high school head coach Justin Gentry. Gentry plays left tackle at Chapin, but he could easily adjust to the guard position at the next level.   He has a 335-pound bench, a 4.5 shuttle, huge hands and feet, with great arm extension for pass blocking. He squats 500 pounds and runs a 5.1 forty with a 28.5” vertical jump.

(In other words, sign here SON!) Georgia State, evaluated personally by head coach Shawn Elliott, has become Gentry’s first offer. He recently took in college games at South Carolina, North Carolina and North Carolina State and many more have been scheduled. Gentry’s sister attends Clemson and it no secret that he grew up a Tiger fan. Robbie Caldwell of Clemson knows about Gentry from summer camp experiences, but no offer has been made yet.  

“We support Thornton as proud parents and we will take him to whatever game college game he would like to go see,” said Coach Gentry.  “At times it has been a challenge to separate the father in me while also being the head coach on the team he plays for.  He is a good student in the class room, and he is very dedicated to the game of football. Although Thornton grew up a Tiger fan, he really likes USC line coach Eric Woolford a lot.  He is very open to the recruiting process and we took in four or five camps this past summer. We went to schools like North Carolina, South Carolina, Clemson, and Georgia State.”

Rounding out the HSSR top 10 list is Blythewood receiver Joshua Burrell (6-2, 210), in the number four slot. Man slamming linebacker Octaveon Minter (6-2, 225) had well over 100 tackles and 20 TFL as a sophomore on the state champion Chester Cyclones and he has played like a Cyclone literally so far in the 2019 season with 54 tackles and 13 QB pressures so far. South Carolina was the first offer for Sumter defensive end Justis Boone (6-5, 240) after he turned heads in person at a summer camp with the Gamecocks. 

Three of the top seven 2021 prospects in South Carolina are big play receivers. The HSSR watched Myrtle Beach’s J.J. Jones (6-4, 190) make several nice catches in his team’s win over Conway last week. Jones transferred from Socastee over the summer and he is just now making a name for himself in the 2021 class as a potential big-time prospect.  He uses his big body in space to fend off defensive backs and he reminded us a lot of former Gaffney receiver Sydney Rice who went on to the NFL after college. The remaining 2021 HSSR prospects 8 through 10 are Hillcrest defensive end Aries Scott (6-4, 215) and he took in the USC/Kentucky game last week. Gaffney quarterback Undre Lindsey (6-2, 200,4.5) was injured in his teams battle with Byrnes last week but he has been putting up good dual threat numbers for the Indians the past two seasons.  Rounding out the Top 10 is honor student James Avery Hewitt (6-3, 305) a two- year starter at tackle for the tradition rich Wildcats. He made good impressions on the camp circuit last summer.

We are also printing for the first time ever a HSSR-SCISA Top 50 list from all grade levels in hopes of getting several private school prospects a fair shake in the complicated recruiting evaluation process. With 2020 defensive linemen prospects like players like Jordan Burch and Alex Huntley (USC pledge) Yof Hammond and receiver Sincere brown of First Baptist (Appalachian State) we have been doing our best to research up and coming players in SCISA, but opinions vary a lot in this group to be honest. We suggest that colleges invite these players to their summer camp for a firsthand look at some top-notch student athletes.

Next issue we dive more into the 2021 class in South class.
