With the early signing period beginning in just one week, we take a look at three Georgia Tech top targets that are left heading into the early signing period.
Chatman decommitted from Tennessee on Tuesday, the second school he’s decommitted from in his recruitment joining LSU. Right now it seems that the Jackets are a team to watch in his recruitment but his recruitment is also wide open at this point. The Jackets are one of 61 total offers for Chatman, a hefty total for a player ranked just out of the top 400.
On Tuesday night, co-offensive line coach Ron West traveled to Chatman’s home in Rome, Georgia to visit the three-star recruit.
Currently, the Jackets have four defensive line commitments, two at defensive tackle and two at defensive end. If Chatman decided to join the Jackets 2018 recruiting class, he would be their second highest rated recruit only behind Jaylon King.

Philadelphia native and IMG Academy wide receiver Jalen Jordan shut down his recruitment on Wednesday committing to Rutgers. Jordan, a 6-foot-5 receiver and a top 100 receiver in the nation will join his current teammate Artur Sitkowski, a four-star quarterback.
The Jackets were in on Jordan until the very end but playing with his current teammate in Sitkowski and going back closer to home seemed to be two huge deciding factors in Jordan’s commitment.
Could the Jackets add another German recruit to their 2017 recruiting class? The simple answer is, yes.
The German defensive lineman/offensive lineman received an offer from the Jackets on Monday, it was his first power five offer. So far, Metz has visited has made four official visits his last coming a week ago at UConn.
Metz is physically built like an NFL ready player at 6-foot-9 and 280-pounds. Fellow German and current Georgia Tech commitment Julius Welschof stands at 6-foot-6 and 248-pounds. Welschof’s commitment to Tech could play a factor in Metz’s recruitment.
If Metz makes his fifth official visit Georgia Tech, I like the Jackets chances in his recruitment. There’s no doubt he’s had contact with Welschof and the Jackets have a history of turning foreign players into tremendous players.
