Georgia Tech appears to be in the mix for an in-state three-star recruit who was formerly committed to Michigan State.
Three-star athlete/cornerback Jordan Huff once was committed to the Michigan State Spartans as part of their 2019 recruiting class. However, the Madison, Georgia native backed off that commitment earlier this month and now appears to be looking at two programs.
Those two programs according to Rivals’s Chad Simmons are Tennessee and Georgia Tech. In an article earlier this month, Huff told Simmons that he likes Georgia Tech and Simmons provided the following quote;
"“They are close to home, so I like the location, the city and I really like the education Georgia Tech offers.”"
That being said, as much as Huff loves Georgia Tech, the Morgan County athlete appears to be highly interested in the Volunteers as well. So far Huff has made two visits to Tennessee, both coming last month and will be taking a third visit to Knoxville at the end of the month. His last visit to Georgia Tech according to his Rivals profile was the November 25th of last season. He also took an official visit to Louisville at the end of May.
Huff overall has 12 scholarship offers from a variety of programs but mostly from Power 5 programs. Overall, Rivals ranks Huff as the 33rd best cornerback in the country and the 51st best player in the state of Georgia, his Rivals rating of 5.7 would make him the top recruit in Georgia Tech’s recruiting class if he would choose to commit to the Yellow Jackets. The Yellow Jackets lead recruiter for Huff is offensive line coach Mike Sewak.
According to the same article mentioned above in which Huff spoke about Georgia Tech, the rising senior is hoping to make a decision on his future sometime early this season.
With a young secondary currently, Huff would be a welcomed addition to the Georgia Tech recruiting class as the Jackets enter this season with a young secondary. The Jackets will be replacing their entire secondary in 2018 which means in 2019 there will be a ton of room for improvement which could mean a freshman potentially stepping in, and playing right away. The Jackets are looking for athletic playmakers on the defensive side of the ball to fit in Nate Woody’s defense and Huff fits the bill. That being said it won’t be easy to pull him away from Tennessee where Jeremy Pruitt is building a strong first recruiting class but perhaps the Jackets can entice Huff with early playing time.
Currently, the Georgia Tech recruiting class of 2019 features 10 commitments and is headlined by LB Chico Bennett from Franklin, Tennessee. It so far doesn’t feature any cornerbacks but does have a safety commitment from Loganville native Jeremiah Smith.
