The first half of National Signing Day 2014 is starting to wind down, and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets had a flurry of activity very early in the morning.
The Jackets started getting letters of intent coming in before coverage even began at 8:30 am, and by 10:30 basically every verbal commit that Tech was hoping to sign had put pen to ink and officially become a Yellow Jacket.
Zero, that’s right, none of the verbal commits flipped to other schools, which is proof of the tight-knit bond that has formed between the 2014 recruiting class members.
All total, the Yellow Jackets ended up with 20 signees, four of them having enrolled early (Matthew Jordan, Tre Jackson, KeShun Freeman and Step Durham) and filled some pressing needs on both sides of the ball.
Here are some of the tweets from the AM during today’s National Signing Day coverage:
Interesting quote from head coach Paul Johnson, the one coming this afternoon wasn’t on the list of verbal commits, so Tech could be getting a nice surprise.
UPDATE: It appears coach Johnson did indeed have some knowledge, or is clairvoyant, as Myles Autry has indeed signed his letter to become a Yellow Jacket.
Johnson said the coaching staff would get a couple of days off until the first Junior Day of the new year, which will be on Saturday. The recruiting job never ends.
