Yellow Jacked Up will like to personally congratulate all of the newest graduates of Georgia Tech! YOU GOT OUT!
Today, the 254th commencement at the Georgia Tech Institute of Technology took place, the graduation ceremony saw 3,000 students graduate and officially become alumni of one of the greatest universities in the world. We’d like to congratulate each of those 3,000 students and not just the 18 student-athletes who graduated today.
That being said, as a Georgia Tech sports site, we must take time to look at those student-athletes.
The following student-athletes graduated today according to RabmlinWreck.com. Some of these may name may be familiar to you, some may not. That being said here are a few sentences on each graduate.
A linebacker from Conyers, Georgia, Alford last played in 2016. For his career, he finished with 51 career tackles including two tackles for a loss. He also had 2 career rushing attempts for 30-yards.
A kicker from Marietta, Georgia, Barton appeared in five games over his career including three this past season. He had five career kickoffs that averaged 55.4 yards and included one touchback.
Devine was one of the Jackets best offensive lineman over the last two seasons and helped lead the Jackets offense in 2017 to four games of 400+ yards rushing. The Atlanta native should at least get looks for training camp by NFL teams if not potentially getting drafted with a late pick.
A Jacksonville, Florida native, Durham was a major part of the Jackets secondary the last two seasons. He finishes his career with the Yellow Jackets with 76 total tackles, one sack, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries, 12 pass deflections, and one career interception.
