It is not like the Yellow Jackets quarterback position was an issue in 2014.

Justin Thomas played pretty well in his first year starting under center.

Aside from the fact that Thomas helped lead the Yellow Jackets to a Coastal Division Championship and an Orange Bowl victory, he also piloted one of the top offenses in the nation.

Georgia Tech at the end of it all was No.11 in total offense accumulating 6,671 total yards.

The Jackets were also No. 1 in total rushing yards with 4,789 yards.

Thomas was the leading rusher for the Yellow Jackets with 1,086 of those yards. He also completed 51.3% of his passes for 1,719 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Thomas is a leader that never gave you the feeling that he was not in control.

You never felt that he was going to fold when the team needed a big play and the 11-3 record along with No. 8 ranking that the Yellow Jackets finished with had a lot to do with the steady QB play of Thomas.

That is why in 2015 Justin Thomas will be on the Heisman watch list, and if things go right, could take the statue home.

The quarterback recruits in the 2015 recruiting class have a solid player in Thomas to study under and pattern their game after.
