Stock rising for Peach State juniors

It's time for the All-State Stock Watch, as we look at All-State football players who saw their potential value rise or fall over the past week. A player could have performed well in a game, received a big-time scholarship offer, broken his leg or just had an off game.

UP — Keyante Green, Eagles Landing Christian Academy, RB

Green has played like his hair is on fire this season, using his speed and athleticism to make contributions all over the gridiron for the 4-0 Chargers. The highly touted junior is coming off a five touchdown effort against First Presbyterian, which ran his season total up to nine scores. On defense, he has recorded 45 stops, 2.5 sacks and returned a fumble for another score.

DOWN — Anfernee Stewart, Duluth, QB

The Wildcats received potentially devastating news about their dynamic passer when Stewart was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain. The senior originally sustained the injury during a loss against Norcross two weeks ago and was forced to sit out last week’s contest as Duluth fell to Collins Hill at home. With Stewart (12 TDs in 2011) under center, Duluth was 2-0 and a scary squad in Region-7-AAAAA play.

Up — Brandon Kublanow, Walton, OL

Last week, Georgia Tech became the first school to offer Kublanow, who is considered the state’s top linemen in the Class of 2013. The 290-pounder is nicknamed the finisher for his ability to drive oncoming rushers into the ground, and his play in the trenches has helped classmate Tyren Jones emerge as Class AAAAA's leading rusher with more than 900 yards and 14 TDs. The duo has Walton undefeated through five contests.
