With a little under one-third of our Class of 2022 rankings players coming from the Upstate, it is by far the most represented zone in all of South Carolina.

This tightly packed crop of talent is vast. Needless to say, we’re going to need a few entries to get to them all.

Over the course of a week, we will break down every single one of the players from this ultra-rich zone, one we expect top-flight production from next fall.

Robby HarrisonRobbyHarrison6'3" | DLEmerald | 2022StateSC

School: Emerald

Position: Defensive line

Analysis: A top-three defensive lineman in the state, Harrison has the size (6-foot-3, 270 pounds), power and speed to already warrant Power 5 offers.

Randy “Deuce” Caldwell

School: Mauldin

Position: Defensive back

Analysis: The 6-foot, 185-pound safety is a bruising tackler who can cover a lot of space sideline to side. Much of that is because of the same vision helps him in wildcat formations on offense.

Gabriel “Gabe” Smith

School: Daniel

Position: Defensive back

Analysis: The lanky corner and strong safety piled up most of his stats in 2020 while opposing offenses were doing everything in their power not to throw his direction.
