DE Luke Johns will officially join the Georgia Tech Football program on Wednesday when he signs his letter of intent.
Dalton, Georgia native Luke Johns will join the Georgia Tech football program on Wednesday when he signs his letter of intent.
The weakside defensive end stands at 6-foot-5 and 244-pounds, great size for a defensive end. Johns is considered a composite three-star recruit and a top-1500 player in the nation. He is also ranked by 247Sports as the 77th best weakside defensive end in the class.
Despite not being a highly rated three-star recruit, Johns was able to gather 19 scholarship offers through his recruiting process. While most of those were Group of Five programs and FCS programs, he did receive several notable offers. A few of those offers include;
- Colorado State
- Washington State
SEC programs Georgia and Vanderbilt also showed interest at times in Johns but never gave the defensive end an offer.
The Yellow Jackets entered Johns recruitment pretty early on in the process and were able to get him on campus late this past July. One day after taking his unofficial visit to The Flats, he decided to commit to the Yellow Jackets. Johns primary recruiter for Georgia Tech was co-offensive lines coach Ron West.
Johns is one of three defensive line signees in the 2018 recruiting class for the Jackets. He joins two defensive tackles in TK Chimedza and Austin Smith. German-born defensive end Julius Welschof was part of the Jackets class until Wednesday when he flipped his commitment to Michigan and signed with the Wolverines.
