The first of two quarterbacks that Georgia Tech signed in the early signing period, Tucker Gleason looks to come to Georgia Tech and make his presence known.
Tucker Gleason, a Tampa, Florida native out of Plant High School, has officially signed his Letter of Intent to Georgia Tech to further his football and academic careers.
Gleason is a highly rated pro style Quarterback rated officially as top-800 nationally at 784th, 32nd in position as a Pro-style QB, and 106th out of the state of Florida, according to 24/7 Sports recruiting database.
Gleason’s talents caught the eyes of many top programs around the nation, including offers from Georgia, Cincinnati, West Virginia, Illinois, Virginia Tech, and more. In his high school film, Gleason portrays an excellent passing ability, has high accuracy, and can move around the pocket with great poise. Gleason stands at 6-foot, 2-inches tall and weighs 203 pounds. His height is an advantage amongst the quarterbacks he’ll likely compete a spot for. As of recent years under Paul Johnson’s offense, quarterbacks were recruited to be smaller, more agile athletes. Gleason may not be the heaviest, but after a few years under Georgia Tech’s incredible strength and conditioning program, he could easily be 220-230 in a few short years.
Gleason will be the first true, Pro-style QB on the Flats since Joshua Nesbitt. Though Nesbitt was recruited under Chan Gailey, Nesbitt played under Johnson and some may consider him the best QB to ever reach the gridiron at Georgia Tech. That being said, all eyes will be on Gleason and his ability to throw the ball.
Gleason has been verbally committed to the Yellow Jackets since March 7th, 2019. He and fellow recruit Billy Ward were the first two commits of the 2020 class, and they set a nice foundation for the next 20-plus commitments to follow.
