Max Johnson is a four-star quarterback from Oconee County High School. He stands at 6-3.5 and weighs 214 pounds. Johnson ranks as the No. 51 overall player, No. 4 pro-style quarterback for 2020 and the No. 8 prospect in Georgia.
Despite being labeled as a pro-style quarterback, it appears he can be quite agile and escape the pocket if need be. Johnson isn’t afraid of pressure and will sling it with a defender rushing towards him. His arm strength is incredible, and I like his ability to tuck it and run if he needs to. Johnson’s spot on with his throws, and he places the ball where only his wideout can grab it. He’s a smart quarterback and has a high football IQ. Any team would be lucky to snag this quarterback at the next level because he just gets better as he gets older.
Johnson currently holds 16 offers and I expect that to double before the end of his junior season. The latest offer came from Tennessee on June 23. He recently attended Miami’s camp on June 16. I expect Johnson to be one of the most sought-after quarterbacks for the 2020 class, and it to come down to Georgia and Miami.

Harrison Bailey is a four-star quarterback from Marietta, Georgia. He stands at 6-5 and weighs 228 pounds. Bailey ranks as the No. 38 overall player, the No. 2 pro-style quarterback for 2020 and the No. 6 prospect in Georgia. Last season he threw for 2,812 yards on 208 completions for 21 touchdowns and 7 interceptions.
He has a heck of an arm and can chunk it down the field with ease. Bailey isn’t afraid to sit in the pocket and make a decision. However, he doesn’t have quite the movement outside of the pocket that other quarterbacks do. Bailey’s a true pro-style quarterback, as his best stuff comes from the pocket. He’s got a high football IQ and puts the ball in perfect places for his wideouts. Bailey sees the field well and seems to have a great group of receivers around him. He’s got to make better decisions at times and seems to force balls into places. But with the right development, he’s going to make a great quarterback at the next level.
Bailey holds 20 offers, with the latest coming from Purdue on May 10. He took a visit to Michigan on June 4, Ohio State on June 5, and Tennesee on June 22. It appears to be between Michigan, Alabama and Florida for this quarterback, but it’s still wide open in my opinion. Bailey’s got the talent to make noise at the next level wherever he decides to play.
