North Gwinnett's Devin Crosby (31) runs against Colquitt County during the Corky Kell Classic games at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Mercer’s football program landed commitments from North Gwinnett seniors Devin Crosby and Taylor Goodson this week.

Goodson, a 5-foot-8, 185-pound safety, was the Touchdown Club of Gwinnett’s Defensive Back of the Year last season, as well as a first-team all-county selection by the Daily Post. He had 68 tackles, 10 pass breakups, 4 interceptions, 3 sacks and a fumble recovery as a senior.


North Gwinnett’s Taylor Goodson (2) tackles Mill Creek’s Parker Wroble during a Region 6-AAAAAAA game last month. Goodson and the No. 4 state-ranked Bulldogs face another tough task when they hit the road for a state semifinal game at top-ranked Lowndes on Friday.

Crosby, a 5-9, 215-pound running back, was a first-team All-Region 6-AAAAAAA selection last season, as well as a third-team all-county pick by the Daily Post. He rushed for 1,414 yards and 19 touchdown as a senior.
