The Georgia Tech football team offered in-state wide receiver Chauncey Magwood on Thursday.
When the Georgia Tech football team offers recruits that are still two or three years away from being seniors in high school, you know it means that the player is a can’t missed talent. Well, the Georgia Tech coaching staff must’ve liked what they saw out of 2021 in-state wide receiver Chauncey Magwood.
Magwood, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound wideout out of Lee County High School picked up the offer from the Jackets on Thursday as he visited The Flats. The offer is the sixth offer for Magwood so far in his recruitment joining Indiana, Michigan, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, and Vanderbilt. The Wolverines were his first official offer.
Magwood’s recruitment obviously is just beginning as a rising sophomore, there is still a long time to go until he decides on where he will be going post high school. With that being said, for a program like Georgia Tech, it’s important to get in on these recruits as soon as possible when they don’t have the recruiting fire power that other programs especially power five programs have on the recruiting trail.
While recruiting services have yet to rank or rate players in the class of 2021, it should be expected that Magwood is rated as a five-star or high four-star wide receiver when the initial rankings come out. A special talent, Magwood could do wonders for the Yellow Jackets offensively whether it be in Paul Johnson’s spread option or another coach’s offense.
On a side note, Lee County’s class of 2021 is looking to be a strong one on the football field as the Jackets have also offered highly touted linebacker Baron Hopson who is being recruited by Andy McCollum and holds six scholarship offers so far.
The Jackets will open their 2018 season on September 1st against the Alcorn State Braves.
