Wednesday, 10/19 at 6:30 p.m. ET

Wednesday's show looks at one of the Peach State's top five prospects, Jermaine Cunningham (6-4, 210) - a defensive lineman from Stephenson High School in Stone Mountain, Ga. After six games this season, Cunningham has 79 tackles, including 15½ sacks. He is looking at staying close to home, having shown interest in Georgia, Auburn and Florida. Cunningham and his Stephenson teammates can be seen on FSN's national telecast of Friday's (10/21, 7 p.m.) game against cross-town rival Redan HS.

Redan Quarterback and Georgia Tech Commitment Byron Ingram (6-5/180) will join us in studio as well as he discusses the big match up and his commitment to the Yellow Jackets.

Another top player spotlighted on Wednesday's COUNTDOWN rates among the Sunshine State's five best prospects. As a junior last year at Sandalwood HS in Jacksonville, Fla., Jamar Hornsby (6-4, 195) recorded 83 tackles and 10 pass deflections as a safety and registered 720 yards and nine touchdowns as a receiver. He is considering Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Tennessee and USC

Also on the CTSD radar screen Wednesday is Tim Hawthorne (6-2, 192), a wide receiver from Homewood HS in suburban Birmingham, Ala., who is looking to continue his football career at Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Tennessee, LSU or Florida. Last season, he caught 84 passes for 1,360 yards and 14 scores.

Derrick Odom (6-2, 205) has dominated at the linebacker for Callaway Senior HS in Jackson, Miss. Last year, he logged 115 stops (12 sacks) and forced 12 fumbles, and he is looking at Alabama, Auburn Ole Miss, and  LSU among others. 

Kendric Burney (5-9, 175) is a playmaker on both sides of the ball and projects as an "athlete" at the next level. This cornerback and quarterback from Southwest HS in Jacksonville, N.C., has committed to North Carolina, and following his junior season, he already had set the school record with 16 career interceptions.
