For the third and fourth time in less than 24 hours, Georgia Tech received a commitment from a 2018 prospect, WR P.J Harris and OL Harrison Jump are the latest additions.
The last 24 hours for Paul Johnson and his coaching staff must be ecstatic due to the last 24 hours. After entering Sunday with no commitments in the 2018 recruiting class, the Jackets have picked up four commitments from prospects.
On Sunday evening, linebacker JaQuez Jackson became the first commitment of the 2018 class when he announced his decision. On Monday, safety Charlie Thomas became the second commitment of the 2018 class. Both players have the potential to be centerpieces of the Jackets defense if they pan out and become starters.
The latest two commitments will help bolster the offensive side of the ball. WR P.J Harris was the first of the two to announce his commitment. Harris, who according to Rivals was the Jackets first actual commitment, but a silent commitment. Harris, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound wide out from Newnan High School appears to have the size to be a productive blocker on the outside and has great size to be a receiving threat when called upon. Harris, in essence, fits the mold of a prototypical Paul Johnson wide receiver. When considering his blocking and receiving skills, Harris could out to to be a tremendous wide receiver for the Jackets once he arrives on campus next summer. Harris was not rated by any recruiting service.
The second commitment was offensive lineman Harrison Jump. Another unrated recruit received his offer from Georgia Tech on Sunday before announcing his commitment on Monday. Jump stands at a solid 6-foot-5 and 257-pounds. His 6-foot-5 frame would make him one of the bigger offensive lineman for the Jackets. The Bogart, Georgia native plays tackle for Prince Avenue Christian School as well as defensive end.
Like with Jackson and Thomas’s commitments, there will be breakdowns of both Harris and Jump’s skills on the field later this week.
