This summer, I had the opportunity to see players from all over the country. However there were a few Georgia players that stood out on the grassroots trails. These athletes showed why they are on a lot of college coaches radars. The coaches box allowed me to see the talent first hand. Here are a few of the athletes that stood out this summer.
