Chimedza is ranked top-30 nationally in his position, and it’s easy to see why. Despite his size, TK offers some noticeable quickness and raw athleticism on the field. Chimedza’s junior year highlight film shows his ability to chase down running backs and use his size to be a burden to all offensive lineman. At IMG Academy, TK plays against the best players in the nation at the high school level, so his ability to make an instant impact in college is undeniable. There’s no way of telling who will be starting in 2018, but one thing is for sure, Paul Johnson’s defense is shaping up to be a force in the coming seasons.
Overall, Chimedza is the third commitment in Georgia Tech’s 2018 recruiting class. He joins S Charlie Thomas and OL Harrison Jump both who committed earlier this month. With Chimedza’s commitment, the Jackets now have had two straight four-star commitments in back-to-back recruiting classes. In the 2017 recruiting class, LB Bruce Jordan-Swilling was considered a four-star recruit. While the class took a while to get started, Paul Johnson and staff have sure had a great June.
