Georgia Tech on Saturday extended an offer to elite 2021 quarterback Garrett Nussmeier.
It’s never too early to get started on recruiting future classes and Georgia Tech has decided to get in early on elite 2021 quarterback Garrett Nussmeier. The offer is the fourth for the Marcus (TX) signal-caller, with the Jackets joining LSU, Missouri, and UTEP. The offer was extended to Nussmeier by Tech’s new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Dave Patenaude.
Calling Nussmeier elite at this stage might be premature but with offers from LSU and Missouri, it’s evident that Nussmeier has the potential to be a top quarterback in the 2021 recruiting class. Another good sign is that he attended the National Underclassman Combine in San Antonio, Texas on Friday and performed well according to 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong. When the 2021 recruiting rankings eventually come out it wouldn’t be shocking to see Nussmeier as one of the top 5-10 quarterbacks in the country and a four-star prospect at the least.
At 6-foot-1 and 175-pounds, Nussmeier doesn’t have tremendous size but as we’ve seen the last few years in college football, you don’t need tremendous size to succeed. It is worth noting that Nussmeier only recently moved to Texas after starting his high school career at Bucholz High School in Gainesville, FL. Nussmeier is the 10th prospect in the 2021 class that the Yellow Jackets have offered and the first quarterback offer sent out by Geoff Collins and his staff.
The Jackets currently have five quarterbacks on their roster for next season after bringing in two quarterbacks in the 2019 recruiting class in Jordan Yates and Demetrius Knight. The Jackets have just one quarterback offer in the 2020 recruiting class so far, that being extended to Demeatric Crenshaw (Pickerington, OH), though that offer was extended last spring under the last regime.
