Gwinnett County Athletes Represent at Signing Day 2015

Gwinnett County Athletes Represent at Signing Day 2015

Hamilton Mill families & the Hamilton Mill Community have a lot to be proud of.   There are nine outstanding football players from Mill Creek High School who are moving on to the next level and playing college football.

On National Signing Day, a slew of Gwinnett County prospects commit and head to the next level.  Nine of these players are from our very own Mill Creek High School.  They include: Daniel David to Appalachian State University, Josh Fannin to Middle Tennessee State, Kaleb Kim to Auburn, Tyler Voyles to Furman, Bobby Klemm to Georgia Military College, Jake Lund to the University of West Georgia, David Curry to Dean College, Gerard Butler to Georgia State University, Jonathan Hawkins to University of Buffalo

134 players from Gwinnett  committed to playing college football this year.  32 players signed with Power 5 Conference schools, 17 with the SEC and 11 with the ACC.

Norcross had a total of 17 players sign, while Class AAAA state champion Buford had 15 players all sign division I scholarships.   The biggest flip of the year came from U.S. Army All-American and GAC wideout Darious Slayton, who changed from Georgia to Auburn late on Tuesday night.  In all the AA state runner-up Spartans had 12 players sign, with Gwinnett Daily Post Offensive Player of the Year Micah Abernathy signing with Tennessee, linebacker Tyler Cooksey to Georgia Tech and linebacker Paul Carothers signing with Navy.

While Auburn was able to secure a late flip from Slayton, it was unable to sway Parkview defensive end G.G. Robinson.  Robinson, who’s father is the career sack leader for the Tigers, opted to stick with Louisville, whom he had been committed to since August. Auburn only gave him an offer late Tuesday night.  “I told him I was going to love him and be proud of him no matter where he went,” Godfree said. “Because in the end its his next three to five years, it’s not a college coach’s, it’s his time. For him to stick to his word, it shows a lot about (Louisville defensive coordinator Todd) Grantham as well, he did a great job recruiting him as well. I was very, very proud of (Robinson) to be true to his word.”

Navy signed the most Gwinnett players with five signees. In all 12 players signed with service academies.  Including junior college signee Alvin Kamara, Tennessee signed four area players.  In addition to Cooksey, Georgia Tech was able to sign Buford defensive back David Curry, and North Gwinnett defensive end Anree Saint-Amour.  South Carolina also signed three area players in Grayson linebacker Daniel Fennel, Archer tight end Connor Redmond and Parkview offensive lineman Trey Derouen.  Georgia grabbed Grayson defensive end Justin Young, and North Gwinnett grad Devondre Seymour from Hinds Community College.

Auburn inked U.S. Army All-American and Mill Creek lineman Kaleb Kim along with Slayton. Unlike his fellow future Tiger, Kim was glad to have no Signing Day drama and have recruiting in his rear-view mirror.

“It is nice to get (national signing day) over with,” Kim said. “It’s exciting. Me and my family, we’ve been waiting on this for a while. So it’s a good milestone.”
