It’s 4 months away. Are you excited yet?
Amarius Mims, ranked by most media outlets as a Top 5 overall player in the nation and #1 player in Georgia for the class of 2021, said he plans to announce in October where he will spend the next 3-4 years playing football. In order, his top 10 schools are listed below:
- Florida State
Yet, being such a high profile player, his recruitment is far from being done. And there is definitely still plenty of time to win him over.
The 5-star 6’7, 310, an offensive tackle from Cochran, Georgia has accumulated over 20 offers since his first one from Penn State in January of 2019.
As one of the top players in the country, many programs are turning up the heat to try to get him on their campus in the fall. It was recently believed he was a package deal alongside friend and Tennessee commit, Cody Brown. However, Georgia is the projected favorite for Mims despite his high regard for all 10 schools.
Our EFN scouts describe him as follows: “Amarius is one of the top offensive line prospects in the country for the 2021 recruiting class. He is a massive 6’7 310 enforcer in the trenches. Amarius is strong, powerful, bends well for his size, and has quickness getting to the 2nd and 3rd levels.
In the run game, he overwhelms defenders with his strength and dominates at the point of attack moving straight ahead. He can seal down and open some huge holes for his running backs.
As a pass blocker, he stays square and can move laterally to stay in front of pass rushers and has long arms and power to stop their momentum. His punch has enough force to just throw defenders to the ground. He doesn’t have to drive anyone to the ground which allows him to find someone else upfield to block. Overall, Amarius is one of the most coveted prospects in the country.”
He is also trailblazing and shining a spotlight on his young and upcoming high school program out of Bleckley County High School. His high profile status has brought national attention to the team, putting many of his teammates in positions to be recruited as well.
The Royals ended their 2019 season with an overall 7-4 record, and Mims notes the amount of growth within the program in his years as a part of the team. They will take the field once again in August against The West Laurens Raiders.
