The Georgia Tech Football program has added offensive tackle transfer Jack DeFoor from Ole Miss.
The Georgia Tech football program has added an offensive tackle to their roster as the program added Jack DeFoor, who was originally a member of the Ole Miss football program.
DeFoor, a member of the 2016 recruiting cycle was expected to be a solid contributor in Oxford when he arrived on campus in 2016. However, a shoulder injury during fall camp prior to his freshman season cost him his true freshman season as he had surgery and redshirted.
Prior to his collegiate career, DeFoor was a three-star prospect from Calhoun, Georgia. According to his Ole Miss profile, DeFoor was named a Class AAA All-State member by both the Georgia Sportswriter’s Association and the Atlantic Constitutional Journal. He was originally recruited by the Yellow Jackets but they never seemed to be a big player in his recruitment.
For DeFoor, the potential is there, he was widely considered a sleeper by multiple recruiting writers and college football writers including ESPN’s Chris Low. At 6-foot-5, and 302-pounds it’s easy to see why. His overall size makes him the Jackets’ biggest offensive lineman.
While DeFoor most likely won’t be eligible to play this upcoming season, he will help replenish a Jackets offensive line that lost three offensive linemen this season and is projected to lose four more following next season. Currently, the Jackets only have two offensive linemen in their 2018 recruiting class.
DeFoor should be getting his first taste of Yellow Jacket football in the upcoming weeks when they begin winter practices.
