Georgia Tech 2020 commitment Jahmyr Gibbs is off to a tremendous start in his senior season and as a result has made him one of the hottest commodities in the nation.
Through the first few weeks of his senior season, Jahmyr Gibbs may be hotter than any running back in the country. The Dalton, Georgia native has only carried the ball 110 times this season but has already amassed 1,364-yards and 24 touchdowns according to his MaxPreps profile. Gibbs career stats so far are just as amazing as his senior stats. He has 420-carries for 3,692-yards, and 54 touchdowns.
Gibbs also made national headlines earlier this season when he rushed for 404-yards and eight touchdowns in Dalton’s season opening win over Ringgold. It was one of the best performances you’ll ever see out of a running back and it also put on Gibbs on the map when it came to his recruitment.
As most Tech fans know, Gibbs has been committed to the Yellow Jackets since late this past May. The three-star recruit committed to the Jackets over programs such as Purdue, Nebraska, and South Carolina just to name a few.
However, since he’s exploded in his senior season, premier programs have come knocking. Teams that have pushed their way to the forefront of his recruitment include Florida, Georgia, and Ohio State. All three are currently top-10 ranked teams and all three want Gibbs in their running back room for the next four-to-five years. The Buckeyes out of those three teams are especially making a tough push for Gibbs it would seem and may be the biggest danger to Gibbs ending up a Yellow Jacket.
That being said, despite the push from some of the country’s top programs, Gibbs has stayed committed to the Jackets. Now, that’s not saying Tech fans shouldn’t be worried. Anytime you’re a school like Georgia Tech and bigger programs come around looking at commitments, it can be worrisome. There’s always a chance a recruit has a change of heart and understandably so. That being said, the recruitment of Gibbs will be a great opportunity for Geoff Collins to show off his recruiting prowess.
Collins has always been promoted as a tremendous recruiter and someone who doesn’t stop recruiting. Expect him to pull out of the stops on Gibbs to ensure that the Dalton native is a Yellow Jacket this time next year. Gibbs recruiting going forward will be a fascinating recruitment to watch and will surely keep Tech fans who follow recruiting on the edges of their seats.
