While the vast majority of the state’s top recruits are coming out of the bigger high schools, the small programs are a gold mine.

Among South Carolina’s Class 2A and 1A programs, five offensive players have set themselves apart even before second semester of their junior academic year begins.

Zack Chalmers Zack Chalmers 6'4" | WR Newberry | 2022 State SC , NEWBERRY

Chalmers is a top-10 prospect, regardless of position, and he’s the second-rated receiver in the entire state. He’s also playing basketball and running track, meaning his star will only continue to rise in the coming months.

Kaydon Sauers Kaydon Sauers 6'5" | QB Crescent | 2022 State SC , CRESCENT

Lot of people would see Sauers’ 6-foot-6, 225-pound frame and just assume he’s throwing fast ball after fast ball to his receivers. Yes, he can do that, but he also shows a surprisingly nice touch and doesn’t make many mistakes. 

Kevin Diggs Kevin Diggs 6'2" | QB Chesterfield | 2022 State SC , CHESTERFIELD

Diggs is selling himself to college recruiters as more of an athlete than a quarterback, but his development at the position during his junior year was enough that a few schools are going to give him a crack at it. He’s got a heck of a fall-back plan.

Jevon Morris Jevon Morris 6'4" | OL Ridge Spring-Monetta | 2022 State SC , RIDGE SPRING-MONETTA

The Trojans stumbled a big in 2020 after making the state title game the previous year. But Morris certainly wasn’t the reason why. The 6-foot-4, 310-pound lineman is versatile and even more seasoned. After all, you can’t teach size.
