The Georgia Tech football program should be prepared to lose running back commitment C’Bo Flemister on Wednesday.
If you remember, the Georgia Tech football program received a commitment in early December from Zebulon, Georgia native C’Bo Flemister. Flemister despite committing just two weeks before the early signing period never signed with the Jackets, leaving him the lone uncommitted to recruit to do so. During his the time of his original commitment, Flemister was a two-star prospect, now he’s considered a three-star.
Since the early signing period, Flemister has been courted by several programs. However, the two progras that have courted him the most have been Tennessee and Notre Dame. The Volunteers were the first program to make a major run at Flemister after the early signing period. Over the last few weeks, Notre Dame has also made themselves a major contender in the Flemister sweepstakes.
Most recruiting experts at this point have Flemister heading to South Bend. It’s easy to see why they believe so as well. Notre Dame has recruited Flemister the hardest over the last few weeks and the Georgia native recently took an official visit there at the end of last month. Recruiting against a school like Notre Dame. The Irish preach history and tradition, not to mention their prestige academically as well. It’s a national brand and recruiting against them is hard no matter what program you’re recruiting for.
If Flemister does leave for South Bend on Wednesday, it shouldn’t come as a surprise. The Jackets coaching staff are most likely ready for the departure, how they will handle the open spot will be interesting.
The Jackets without Flemister would sit at 19 signees and one verbal commitment. The lone verbal commitment being Rome, Georgia native Jaquon Griffin. The Jackets will have a hand full of scholarships left. Two names to watch are Parkview, Georgia running back Christian Malloy and Lakeland, Florida defensive end Jordan Domineck.
