Now the thing about Atlanta is people who live 20-30 minutes away say they are from Atlanta, and that's ok with me for my question. I'm just looking for a little help here. I'm going to name a couple I think would make the list, feel free to disagree, add, etc. More responses the better.
-Norcross? (maybe I'm putting this here just because of Carter)
Buford, Norcross, Grayson, Stephenson, Sandy Creek, Brookwood, Central Gwinnett, Stone Mountain to name a few. Buford would definitely be near the top as far as consistent D1 talent.

GO NOLES! / SCALP EM!
Tucker...Parkview...St Pius X...Griffin....Eagles Landing..Stephenson
Cant forget about...Southwest Dekalb..Marietta...Chamblee
I almost added Parkview but they have fallen off some as far as D1 players I think. Still a solid program though.
All the Cobb County schools produce D1 players .
Gwinnett County just set a record in 2013 for the most players signed in the state...
The most decorated recruiting class in Gwinnett County history put its stamp on National Signing Day on Wednesday.
#Big time recruits like Grayson's Robert Nkemdiche and Norcross' Alvin Kamara made their announcements live on ESPN.
#All-Americans Trey Johnson from Central Gwinnett and Kelsey Griffin stuck firm with their commitments.
#But those four were just the tip of the iceberg on National Signing Day in Gwinnett. The county set another record with 120 players signing scholarships, including 43 to Division I programs and 26 of those to Division I-BCS conference schools. The list includes six players to Division I junior college programs.
#"I hope it's a trend that continues to grow," South Gwinnett head coach John Small said.
#The number of signees in Gwinnett has steadily risen over the last decade, up from just 32 players signings in 2003. The county produced 107 signees a year ago.
#Of the 22 football playing schools in Gwinnett, 20 had at least one signee. They ranged from BCS powers like Alabama and Georgia to 12 in-state programs, Ivy League schools and obscure places like Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire.
Youll start to see some players from Archer soon. Archer is the new school for lower priced subdivisions that used to feed Grayson.
Jake the Snake is from Stone Mountain.
So is our LB Ukeme Eligwe
AL and GA are as rish in talent imo as FLA
The Future is Now.
I agree...forgot about them..
Sandy Creek HS is a powerhouse right now. Its in south Atlanta. They just won their 3rd state 4A title in a row and I can tell you this WR Demarre Kitt is the real deal. This HS has produced Calvin Johnson and a couple other NFL players that I can't think of right now. Another school not mentioned here is Peachtree Ridge which had great success couple years ago when Kevin Minter was there. Tucker is a D1 factory. Norcross was a joke until their HC got there....remember Brice Butler? He went there and according to his dad Bobby wasn't really recruited by Bowden's staff until late....still a sore subject I'm told. I do know former punter Chris Hall is on the staff there so maybe that will help w/ Lorenzo Carter
Gainesville High School produces at least 1 per year lately.
Parkview was always just a well coached, well conditioned team that relied on precision execution and strength. Parkview never really did produce all that many D1 kids. Going back to the mid to late 90s you had the Muyres brothers Jeff at Wake Forest, Jon and Jeremy at GT, the Stinccomb brothers and Brett Millican at UGA, Jim May at Vandy but that was about it for big time D1 talent. Early 2000s produced some more kids especially at OL Brandon Pilgrim (Clemson), Zeb McKensy (UGA), and David Overmyer (FSU) were all on the same OL. Brad Lester (Auburn) and Caleb King (UGA) were some excellent RBs about that time, too. Haven't been as many guys lately (at least going to BCS schools).
Best schools for lots of BCS talent right now are...
7. Ptree Ridge
8. Sandy Creek
