The early national signing period is upon as high school football players across the country will begin signing with the schools of their choice. Geoff Collins’ will officially begin putting pen to paper on his first recruiting class as Georgia Tech’s head coach.

Welcome Georgia Tech fans to the 2019 Early National Signing period. Members of Georgia Tech’s 2020 recruiting class will have the opportunity to sign with the Yellow Jackets from Wednesday through Friday.

The good news for Georgia Tech fans is that most of the recruiting class should be and is expected to sign on Wednesday. Additionally, there may be some early Christmas presents underneath the tree for Geoff Collins and his staff as the Yellow Jackets are also in the running for four-star quarterback Jeff Sims and three-star athlete Khatavian Franks.

If you haven’t be sure to check out our Georgia Tech Early National Signing Day primer that we posted on Tuesday afternoon. You can also follow along with us on twitter at @YellowJackedUp.

OL Ryan Johnson

Recent graduate transfer Ryan Johnson has officially signed with the Yellow Jackets. You can read more here about Johnson, here.

QB Jeff Sims

WHAT’S THE GOOD WORD?! Well today, it’s that Georgia Tech has landed four-star quarterback Jeff Sims. You can read more on his commitment, here.

OL Micahel Rankins

Forgive us, we missed another one earlier. But offensive lineman Michael Rankins is another big time offensive lineman who adds some much needed size and athleticism to the offensive line.

WR Avery Boyd

Here’s one of those remaining few as the explosive Avery Boyd out of Florida adds another speed threat to the Jackets ever growing and dangerous wide receiver core.

Not too many left to go….(9:20 a.m)

Not too many left to go here for the Yellow Jackets, we count only three “expected” signees left to come in. Also of course, waiting on the decision of Jeff Sims.

DE Albany Casey ★★★

OT Cade Kootsouradis ★★★

WR Avery Boyd ★★★

If you’re interested in watching Jeff Sims decision, you can watch a livestream of the decision on Action News Jax’s Facebook page, here.

OL Paula Vaipulu

Vaipulu has the size you want in an offensive lineman and most importantly for the Jackets, he’s a center. He’ll be playing quicker than most offensive lineman for the Jackets because of that.

OL Ryan Spiers

A bit of a project, Spiers won’t see the field probably any time soon for the Yellow Jackets but with a few years of work with Brent Key, Spiers could be developed into a quality offensive lineman for the Jackets.

WR Nate McCollum

We somehow missed this earlier but McCollum is another four-star pickup for the Yellow Jackets. A speed threat wtih 4.41 speed, McCollum has the chance to play right away and be Ahmarean Brown’s partner in crime at wide receiver.

TE Billy Ward

Georgia Tech fans still may be getting to the use to the idea of tight ends but the Jackets now have another scholarship tight end on their roster. The Yellow Jackets may look for a grad transfer at tight end heading into 2020 but if they don’t, Ward will play right away on The Flats.

LB Khaya Wright

Size, athleticism, skill set, Wright has everything you want in an outside linebacker.

DL Emmanuel Johnson

One of the Jackets most recent additions to the 2020 recruiting class, Johnson has great size at 6-foot-5 and 260-pounds. With that size comes some great length which will be huge for him as he continues his development. He’s probably a year or so away from seeing the field.

WR Ryan King

A local product out of Grayson High School, King is another play maker to add to the Yellow Jackets wide receiver group. With great size and quality speed, King will be a play maker once he hits the field.

DE Jared Ivey

A four-star defensive end, Ivey is a prospect that oozes potential. He has great size and skillset, if he could put on a bit more weight (muscle) before next fall, we could see him play right away. Defensive line coach Marco Coleman should have fun working with Ivey.

WR Bryce Gowdy

An elite receiver out of Florida, Gowdy adds to Georgia Tech’s growing list of play makers at the wide receiver position.

LB Tyson Meiquez

Meiquez had a huge senior season for Creekside High School and has a chance to be something really special for the Yellow Jackets if his high school career was any indication.

LB Khatavian Franks

After making his commitment and signing not that long ago, Franks is officially in.

OT Jordan Williams

One of the big things the Georgia Tech coaching staff had to do once they got to The Flats was beef up the offensive line. Williams will do just that at 6-foot-5 and 310-pounds. He should be a fun prospect for Brent Key to work with.

ATH Khatavian Franks commits to Georgia Tech (7:50 a.m)

OL Wing Green

At 6-foot-7, Green is huge for an offensive lineman and has the potential to grow into quite the offensive lineman for the Yellow Jackets. With a strong skillset for Brent Key to work with, Green could very well turn into a steal for Geoff Collins and company.

DB Jalen Huff

Man, is Geoff Collins putting together a scary secondary so far in his short time at Georgia Tech.

DL Akelo Stone

The Jackets goal this cycle was obviously beefing up both lines of scrimmage and Stone will go a long ways in doing that.

DE Kyle Kennard

Kennard has the size you look for at defensive end and is another quality in-state recruiting victory for the Jackets.

CB Miles Brooks

Brooks was one of the first commitments in the recruiting class that showed that Geoff Collins and his coaching staff were here to change the culture of recruiting at Georgia Tech. He has HUGE potential and should add to an already quality secondary for the Jackets.

QB Tucker Gleason:

The Jackets lone quarterback commitment (for now…) Gleason was one of the Jackets first commitments in the 2020 recruiting class. He has great measurables and has shown the ability to move the ball with both his legs and his arm. He has a few things to clean up but, overall, he’s a pretty sound quarterback prospect.

Expected to sign:

Out of the Yellow Jackets 22 commits entering Wednesday’s signing day, 20 of them are expected to sign with one of them questionable (JaQuari Wiggles) and one of them not expected to sign and make a final decision until February (Jahmyr Gibbs).
