27. DE Mykel Williams

Gorney’s Take: Mykel Williams backed up his five-star ranking at the Rivals Five-Star Challenge even though he will need to keep dominating because many high four-stars are pushing for these final spots. But the USC commit was very good coming off the edge – fast, violent, aggressive and much more agile and athletic than expected. Williams is a big, physical and athletic presence who had a good showing in Atlanta.

28. QB Gunner Stockton

Gorney’s Take: Gunner Stockton has a big-time arm, he is fearless bombing the ball all over the field, the Georgia commit will sit in the pocket and take a hit if it means his pass was caught by a receiver. There’s a lot to like about Stockton’s game.

The one issue is that the Tiger (Ga.) Rabun County standout did no national events this offseason so it was impossible to compare and contrast him to other five- and four-star prospects. A big senior season and all-star event will be needed so Stockton can prove he should be considered at the highest level.

29. DT Tyre West

Gorney’s Take: Tyre West is a very talented and versatile defensive lineman who is fast and skilled enough to come off the edge and getting big enough to make a big impact as a defensive tackle, not only during his senior season but also in the SEC. The Georgia commit who is also being pursued by Florida State and others has surprising power and he pursues from the backside a lot and those are the positive parts of his game.

But West is also someone who steers clear of competing at national events and so that will mean he will need to show out this season and during the all-star season to maintain his lofty ranking.
