Georgia Tech Football: Jackets finish Early National Signing Day with a top-25 class

While the Early National Signing period is still active until Friday, the most important day is now in the past and with the dust settling, the Jackets have a top-25 recruiting class.

The dust has settled and it is clear now, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets finished Early National Signing Day with a top-25 recruiting class. Geoff Collins and his Yellow Jackets wrapped up Early National Signing Day as the country’s No.24 recruiting class and No.5 in the ACC. The Jackets finished Wednesday with 22 signees and two players who have yet to sign in Albany Casey and Jahmyr Gibbs. They picked up two commitments/signees during Wednesday in three-star athlete Khatavian Franks and four-star quarterback Jeff Sims.

Above the Yellow Jackets in the ACC are Clemson, Miami, North Carolina, and Florida State. The Yellow Jackets started the day in front of the Seminoles but with Florida State signing of four-star wide receiver Bryan Robinson, the Seminoles jumped back in front of the Jackets.

With that being said, the Jackets still currently sit four spots higher than their ranking from last cycle of No.9. The Jackets have a comfortable lead over the Louisville Cardinals who sit at No.6 so barring a huge series of pickups by the Cardinals, the Jackets should finish the entire 2020 recruiting cycle as a top-5 class in the ACC.

Nationally, it will be tough for the Jackets to remain in the top-25 especially considering the current ranking does take into account the commitment of Jahmyr Gibbs. The Jackets are in the running for four-star defensive end Jayson Jones who is currently committed to Alabama but even if the Jackets land Jones, it will be hard for them to remain in the top-25. Mississippi State, Wisconsin, and Maryland are all within striking distance of the Yellow Jackets.

Either way, the Jackets probably won’t fall much further than the 27-30 range which would still ensure the Jackets sign their best recruiting class since 2007 when they finished the country’s 15th best recruiting class.
