Wide receiver Clinton Lynch surprised a few of the Georgia Tech fans when he committed to the Yellow Jackets on February 4th, and then signed a Letter of Intent on National Signing Day. Lynch had offers from other schools like Georgia, Appalachian St and Middle TN.
Lynch, a 2-star wide receiver out of Norcross Ga. had 566 receiving yards in his final regular football season, but when he steps onto the Flats here at Georgia Tech he will be playing in the A-Back position.
When asked about playing A-Back, Lynch said:
Tech wants me to play A-Back and I haven’t played in that type of offense before, so I will be new to it, but I think my skills will fit what the role requires.
Obviously Lynch has good hands, since he racked up a good bit of yards as a receiver. If he can gain those type of yards on the ground, he will be able to help fill the hole that was left by Robert Godhigh.
Lynch might be redshirted this year, due to him not knowing or understanding Coach Johnson’s offense. If Johnson gives Lynch a year to grasp the triple-option, he will come in and contribute right away.
