The Georgia Tech coaching staff has sent out a ton offers this week compared to their usual amount as they prepare for a hopeful busy summer.
With schools across the country entering their final weeks or already over, junior year grades are becoming available, another factor for coaching staffs to consider. At an academic power like Georgia Tech, a junior year of grades could play a factor in who they offer. Now, not all the offers that the Jackets have sent out this week will because of that but it is an important factor to remember going forward as the summer grows closer.
A defensive tackle out of Bainbridge, the Yellow Jackets offered Harrison on Thursday, giving him four D1 offers. The 6-foot-3, 252-pound defensive lineman also holds offers from Florida Atlantic, Georgia Southern, and South Alabama. A 2017 All-State by the Georgia Athletic Coaches Association. He is currently unranked by 247Sports. The Bainbridge native was last on campus for the Jackets spring game in April.
Jean-Baptiste may be unranked by 247Sports right now but don’t let that fool you. The South Florida linebacker could be a diamond in the rough and has an offer list proving his potential. The inside linebacker has 21 scholarship offers so far, mostly from group of five programs but has garnered the attention of several power five programs. Jean-Baptiste’s development and summer will ultimately play a big part in the future of his recruitment, with a strong summer and fall, he could be a take for the Jackets.
The most recent quarterback to receive an offer from the Tech coaching staff was Orlando, Florida native Robert Harvey Jr, who is unranked by 247Sports at this time. He has 11 other scholarship offers right now including offers from North Carolina, Syracuse, and Virginia.
If the last name sounds familiar, that’s because it should. Njoku is the youngest of three brother including that of former Miami tight end David Njoku who is now with the Cleveland Browns in the NFL. The middle brother, Evidence will be a Hurricane starting this fall and the youngest will most likely join them in Miami come 2019.
Currently, the youngest of the trio is a three-star recruit by 247Sports and is ranked as the 100th best receiver in the country. Don’t expect the Jackets to be in play for Njoku.
A three-star recruit, Emerson Jr. has garnered an impressive offer list over the past few months that has now up to 26 scholarship offers which includes several power five programs. According to reports he’s looking at making a decision this summer so it will be interesting to see if the Jackets can make any significant progress in his recruitment over the next few weeks or months leading up to his commitment date.
Fox received his eighth scholarship offer when the Yellow Jackets extended an offer to the Suwanee native on Wednesday. It was his fifth power five offer as he’s also received offers from Iowa, Iowa State, Ole Miss, and Syracuse to date. The Yellow Jackets could become a player in Fox’s recruitment with the close proximity but the Georgia native is also high on other programs such as Iowa, where he recently took a visit.
Georgia Tech currently holds four commitments in the class of 2019 which is ranked 55th in the nation and 10th in the ACC per 247Sports. The program will kick off it’s season on September 1st at home against FCS opponent Alcorn State.
