Georgia Tech head coach Geoff Collins and his staff have entered their first major recruiting battle it appears as they look to land three-star tight end Brett Seither.
It appears that the new Georgia Tech coaching staff has entered their first major battle for a recruit. That recruit is three-star tight end Brett Seither out of Clearwater Central Catholic in Clearwater, Florida but originally from Warwick, Maryland.
When Georgia Tech initially entered Seither’s recruitment it appeared to be a battle between TCU (the favorites), Michigan State, and Maryland. Seither earned his offer from the Yellow Jackets on January 4th. Since then, however, Seither has been offered by Alabama, Georgia, and Penn State. All three of those offers came last Friday a Seither was preparing to get on campus for his official visit.
The good news for the Yellow Jackets is that they were able to get Seither on campus this past weekend on an official visit. It’s his third official visit of five available, after visiting Michigan State back in June and TCU last month. That means he has two official visits available for Alabama, Georgia, and Penn State to fight over.
Additionally, if early playing time is something that appeals to Seither more so than other variables, the Jackets are certainly in a good position to do so with only two natural tight ends on the roster for next year in UConn grad transfer Tyler Davis and early signee Dylan Deveney.
Seither’s recruitment over the next few weeks should be an interesting one to watch. Overall, the 6-foot-5, 228-pound tight end has 38 scholarship offers. He’s ranked as a top-1000 player nationally in 247Sports’s composite rankings while also being the 43rd ranked tight end in the country. He’s the second highest rated tight end who doesn’t have a college commitment or has signed with a program.
Georgia Tech’s 2019 recruiting class features 17 members so far with 16 of them signing during the early signing period. The lone non-signee is three-star offensive tackle Joshua Black out of Stone Mountain (GA).
