The 6-foot-6, 248-pound German is listed on his 247Sports profile as a defensive end and tight end. Obviously, if Welschof ends up committing to the Jackets, he’ll be playing the former. The most impressive notable on Welschof is his 40-yard dash time of 4.55. That 40-yard dash time would’ve been the third-best in last year’s NFL combine.
Welschof is listed as a composite three-star but 247Sports’s own rankings have him as a four-star recruit and the 13th best defensive end in the country.
The good news for Georgia Tech is that Welschof is visiting The Flats this upcoming weekend for the Jackets homecoming game against Wake Forest. The visit should be his last prior to his college commitment which is always a good sign for schools competing for a commitment.
Welschof has already used three of his five official visits, as he took trips to UConn, Temple, and Iowa State.
One factor that may play into Welschof’s decision is how the Jackets developed Adam Gostis, now of the Denver Broncos. Gostis a native of Australia played both Austrailian rules football and American football in Australia before coming to Tech in 2012. The Jackets coaching staff took a gifted athlete in Gostis who was still a raw prospect and were able to mold him into a second-round NFL draft pick.
Currently, the 2018 recruiting class features 15 commitments and is ranked 53rd nationally by 247Sports. The Jackets currently have one defensive end commitment in the 2018 recruiting class, that being Luke Johns. Johns committed to the Yellow Jacket back on July 28th.
