Over the last few days, several Georgia Tech targets have updated their recruitment and the Yellow Jackets find themselves sitting well but with strong competition.
Across the country, we are seeing college football targets committing and narrowing down their lists despite being unable to visit campuses and take visits. Over the past few days, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have seen three of their targets update their own recruiting lists including one four-star quarterback.
WR Skyler Bell – Three-Star out of Watertown, CT
Three-star wide receiver Skyler Bell out of The Taft School in Watertown, Connecticut released his top six on Monday with the Yellow Jackets on the list. Bell, the 124th ranked receiver in the 2021 recruiting class according to 247Sports’s composite rankings also had Iowa, Northwestern, Virginia Tech, Rutgers, and Wake Forest on his list.
According to 247Sports’s crystal balls, the Iowa Hawkeyes are the favorite to land Bell.
RB Katavias Gerter – Three-Star out of Opa Locka, FL
Gerter like Bell released his list on Monday, but for Gerter it was top five schools though his recruitment remains open. The Yellow Jackets made Gerter’s top five in a list of high-quality programs from around the Southeast and the north.
Joining the Jackets for the country’s No.6 all-purpose back includes Georgia, Florida, Penn State, and West Virginia. The 5-foot-10, 194-pounder had a quality offer list to begin with and a highly sought after prospect. The Yellow Jackets will have plenty of competition in landing Gerter.
DUAL-QB Kaidon Salter – Four-Star out of Cedar Hill, Texas
Out of the prospect hot bed of north east, Texas, the Yellow Jackets found themselves in the top-11 of one of the country’s top dual-threat quarterbacks. Salter, last weekend released his top-11 as he looks to narrow down his recruitment.
Salter, a top-250 prospect per 247sports is the country’s no.10 dual-threat quarterback. The Cedar Hill High School product is considered a Baylor lean right now but the Arkansas Razorbacks are right there behind the Bears. The Yellow Jackets will be looking to play catch up alongside the Auburn Tigers, Louisville Cardinals, Kansas Jayhawks, Louisville Cardinals, Michigan State Spartans, Ole Miss Rebels, and UCLA Bruins.
Overall, the Yellow Jackets 2021 recruiting class is off to a good start but has a bit of a lag here in the last few weeks which isn’t totally unexpected. That being said, there is plenty of time for the Yellow Jackets to get the ball rolling once again in the upcoming weeks and months.
