Georgia State football prepares for National Signing Day on Feb. 6. Graham Robson | THE SIGNAL

National Signing Day is less than a month away and Georgia State has its eyes set on numerous high school seniors from around the country.

Head coach Trent Miles and his staff have hit the recruiting trail since his arrival in December of last year in hopes of finding key pieces for next years team.

Recruiting is the lifeblood of every college athletic program and coach Miles’ first recruiting class will go a long way to determine the Panthers’ success in the seasons to come.

The Signal will track the verbal commitments made to Georgia State over the next few weeks and will conclude with all day coverage of National Signing Day on Wednesday, Feb. 6.

Players are not allowed to sign national letters of intent to enroll until Feb.6, therefore a verbal commitment is not official.

This list, or any list posted before Feb. 6, is unofficial and is not meant to be a complete list of verbal commitments made to Georgia State.


QB Oshay Carter- Trinity Christian Academy (Jacksonville, Fla.)

6’3” 235

Carter passed for over 1,200 yards and 14 touchdowns and helped lead the Trinity Christian Academy Conquerors to an 8-4 record this past fall.  He also found the end zone twice on the ground. rating- two stars


LB Kight Dallas- Stephenson (Stone Mountain, Ga.)

6’2” 220

Dallas has the potential to be one of the most prized recruits in Georgia State’s young football history.  He was recruited by South Carolina early in the recruiting period and several other Division I schools have shown interest in the speedy outside linebacker. rating- three stars


OT Brandon Pertile- Countryside (Clearwater, Fla.)

6’5” 295

Pertile most likely projects to be a right tackle in college and has received interest from several other schools, including Florida Atlantic and Coastal Carolina.  Pertile was the first official commitment after coach Miles took over for the Panthers in December. rating- two stars


DB Jeremy Fulcher- Woodrow Wilson (Dallas, Texas)

6’1” 175

Flucher, who committed to the Panthers just before Christmas, also had offers from New Mexico State and UNLV.  Fulcher lined up at safety in high school and showed good ball skills and a willingness to attack the run.  He is a fluid playmaker and has the ability to turn his defense into offense following turnovers. rating- two stars
