The Georgia Elite Classic was first introduced in December of 2013 and has provided a stage for many of the state’s top prospects in each year since. While operating as an annual all-star showcase, the Classic has expanded considerably since its inception—growing from a one-game event to its current massive eight-game lineup. This year’s event on Dec. 21-22 will have players ranging from the Class of 2020 in the Senior Game and Brain Bowl all the way to the Class of 2026 in the Sixth Grade Game.

The Class of 2015 was represented in the Junior Game of the Inaugural Georgia Elite Classic in 2013 and therefore is the earliest graduating class to come through the event. The Class of 2016 was represented in the 2014 Classic’s Junior Game the following year and the Class of 2017, Class of 2018 and Class of 2019 have appeared in the the past four Classics alongside classes yet graduate. We looked back through each of the Georgia Elite Classic rosters of the classes that graduated (2015-2019) and found nearly 700 individuals that have gone on to play at the next level. This staggering number also includes current NFL players Chuma Edoga and TJ Rahming, who were featured in the first-ever Classic.

 

Tucker Tiger players included in Georgia Elite Classic Alum:

 

 2019 Dominic Boyd-Alabama State; Jonovan Lowe - Tusculum; Derrick McLendon - FSU;

2018 Malachi Buckner-Garner-Webb; Cam'Ron Carter-Colorado State; Terrell Paxton-Kennesaw State; Antonio Showers-Troy; Taurean Taylor-Tuskegee; Gerry Vaughn-Iowa State; Blake Jefferson - Lenoir-Rhyne;

2017 Cameron Richardson - Grambling State; Brian trozier - Garden City CC;
