Zion Puckett is a four-star wide receiver from Spalding County High School in Griffin, Georgia. He ranks as the No. 43 WR and the No. 29 prospect in Georgia. Puckett currently has 23 offers with the latest coming from Ole Miss on March 15. He recently visited South Carolina on March 3rd. The Bulldogs appears to be right in the mix of things and says they’re recruiting him hard. Puckett isn’t sure when he will commit.

I spoke to him about his recruitment and found out that the school of his choice must have his major which will be architecture or engineering.
