Football - Recruiting - Jackets Nab Three

A Saturday football camp turned into a verbal commit free-for-all, as at least three different guys gave their pledges to Paul Johnson (per and A good day for Jacket fans.

A 6'3", 230lb kid from Flowery Branch HS, he was offered and committed on the spot to Georgia Tech. Most schools were after him as a MLB, but we recruited him as a B-Back. Has some pretty impressive measurables - ran about a 4.5-40, 35" vertical, bench 350lb and a 3.8GPA. Drummond had offers from Arkansas, Ok St, WV, Marshall and Troy.

A 6'4" 265lb O-Line / D-Line combo player. While every other school recruited him for the D-Line, we recruited him for the O-Line. Looks like he ran about a 4.7-40, so quicker looks to be better than bigger when it comes to O-Linemen for Paul Johnson. Jay is from Kennesaw Mountain. Had offers from Louisville, Ole Miss, NCST and at least 3 other schools.

A 6'2" 210lb LB / DE from Jefferson County. Offered by Miss St and was getting a lot of interest from Virginia and Alabama. He will likely end up in the LB position although he was ranked the #33 DE by nationally.
