The Georgia Tech football program signed four wide receivers in the early signing period and Deerfield Beach (FL) native Bryce Gowdy leads the group.
Bryce Gowdy, a four-star wide receiver from the Sunshine State is officially set to become a Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket after signing with the Jackets on Wednesday morning. Gowdy originally committed to the program back in July and never wavered from that commitment in the months following.
Gowdy joins the likes of DB Miles Brook, RB Jahymr Gibbs, WR Nate McCollum, and QB Jeff Sims as the four-stars of Georgia Tech’s 2020 recruiting class. Out of those five, only Gibbs has yet to sign his letter of intent to play on The Flats. Gibbs whose recruitment has skyrocketed over the last few months will make his final college decision on National Signing Day, February 5th. Alabama and Ohio State are currently seen as the top threats to the Jackets for the Dalton (GA) native.
The Florida native committed to the Yellow Jackets over scholarship offers from Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Oregon, Penn State, Syracuse, Tennessee, and West Virginia. In total, Gowdy held 28 reported scholarship offers. The Jackets biggest competition for Gowdy was Syracuse prior to his commitment.
Gowdy is one of eight Yellow Jacket signees that is expected to enroll early. They’ll enroll on The Flats in January, giving him a full off season to work the coaching staff and strength and conditioning staff. Additionally, with the full offseason under his belt, Gowdy should become an ideal candidate for early playing time in 2019.

At 6-foot-2, 207-pounds, Gowdy possesses quality size for a wide receiver and while he doesn’t have game breaking speed, he still can be a big-play machine for the Jackets. Gowdy shows a great skillset and knack to be a possession receiver for the Jackets. He may have big receptions of 40+ yards here or there but for the most part he’ll be the guy that a quarterback looks to to pick up first downs and make catch after catch. If Gowdy can show that reliability early on in his career, he could become a mainstay in the Jackets offense early and stay there for the next three or four years.
