Best of the available players in Georgia's 2020 class

A nice chunk of Georgia’s class of 2020 is starting to find homes at the college level. While there are nearly 40 players already committed to schools, there are still a number of players who are on the board. Some are closer than others to ending their respective recruitments. Some are looking to wait until the spring to pick a school. 

We comb through the best player at each position who is still on the board from the Peach State.

The super athletic guard from Dekalb County will wait and pick a school until the spring, according to those close to him. An injury kept him out of the majority of the travel season and recruiters are still getting a chance to see more of him on the court. He recently visited Georgia State and has been to Dayton and Saint Louis already, too.

Blessed with an explosive first step and an athletic mindset each time out, Florence is always on the hunt for a big time play at the rim. He’s one of the most entertaining players in the Peach State and the best combo guard that is on our hot board for Georgia’s 2020 class. Florence has visited Georgia State while he’s hearing from Florida State, Grand Canyon, Rhode Island and Creighton. He will more than likely wait to sign in the spring.

The dynamic 1-2 combo is one of the most versatile and dynamic pairs in the state of Georgia. Both should draw a lot of attention this high school season. Missouri recently came out and saw the two in September in a workout. Both players should draw a wide variety of programs in the coming months.

A surprise move-in from Huntington Prep, Thor not only brought a high-level skill set to the Gwinnett County powerhouse, he’s brought a high-major recruitment with him. Thor is the coveted target of some of the top overall programs in the nation. Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Oklahoma State and UCLA are in the running. Oklahoma State is picking up steam in the race for the big man.

He’s currently on a visit to Tennessee for an official and he’s been to Georgia, Miami and Vanderbilt. A trip to UConn is on the calendar before the high school season starts, too. The 6-foot-10 big man is one of the most coveted players in Georgia’s 2020 class and one of the most sought after big men in the country. He’s more than likely going to sign in November but isn’t closing the door on waiting until the spring to sign with a school.
