On Thursday, the Georgia Tech football staff offered the nation’s top prospect in the class of 2020, defensive tackle Bryan Breese.
The Georgia Tech coaching staff has decided to join the fray in offering the nation’s top 2020 prospect, Bryan Breese. The Damascus, Maryland native is ranked by the 247Sports’s composite rankings as the country’s top player. One watch through his highlight tape and it’s easy to see why colleges across the country are battling it out to land the game-changing prospect.
For the Jackets, the offer may have come a bit too late. Breese recently released a top 6 list featuring;
- Ohio State
- Penn State
Early on in his recruitment, it appeared that Breese was probably a lean to land in the Big Ten with Ohio State and Penn State getting a ton of attention early on and with experts crystal ball predictions trending towards those two programs. However, since January, the tide has changed in his recruitment and now it appears that Clemson is in the proverbial “driver’s seat” to land Breese. That’s also evident through 247Sports’s crystal balls that have the Tigers as the overwhelming favorite to land him.
That being said, it’s safe to say that the Yellow Jackets probably won’t be much of a player in the recruitment for Breese and it’s honestly shocking it took them this long to offer. However, it’s a good sign that the coaching staff has decided that it’s better late than never to get involved and will certainly attempt to make a push to at least garner some interest from the nation’s top defensive tackle.
For insight on Breese, here’s a snippet of 247Sports’s scouting report on Breese;
"“Wide-bodied, bulky frame with the ability to grow into an inside defender or trim down into a big edge lineman. Has elite get-off and first-step quickness, particularly given his size and bulk. Shows quick hands as a pass rusher.”” – Barton Simmons, 247Sports"
Simmons later goes onto say that;
"“No-doubt immediate impact elite Power 5 player with No. 1 overall NFL Draft choice upside.”"
No matter how you look at, Breese is a game-changing talent that will cause havoc for the three-to-four years he is at when he commits to the college of his choice.
Overall, the Yellow Jackets are still looking for their first commitment in the 2020 recruiting class. The 2020 recruiting class will be head coach Geoff Collin’s first full recruiting cycle on The Flats and he’s already brought a ton of excitement to the program. The question now, however, is “Can it translate to success on the field and on the recruiting trail?”.
That question will be answered in the upcoming month, but the coaching staff surely will go down swinging, even when they don’t necessarily hit on each top target they have.
