One of the best states in the country for top prep football talent, the Peach State is home to Thomas Castellanos, UCF Football's quarterback commitment. He is so well thought of in his home state of Georgia, that he was listed as one of the Super 11 by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Vitals: 5'11, 190-pounds
High School: Waycross (Ga.) Ware County
Recruitment: Committed to UCF.
Considering there are numerous other Georgia prep players committed to programs like Georgia, Texas A&M, and Tennessee that did not make the list, that's quite an honor. To read about Castellanos from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, go here.

Here's a look at Castellanos from the Orlando Elite 11 competition:
Castellanos is not your typical signal caller. He's capable of playing inside or outside the pocket. Further, he made throws from several different arm angles and pocket positions during his junior season. The following two clips help to understand just how mobile this young man can be.
As UCF continues to build its 2022 recruiting class, Castellanos will always be a major part of the equation. He's a really good fit for UCF Head Football Coach Gus Malzahn's offense.
