Georgia Tech Football: Jackets Land DT Zeek Biggers

The recent momentum on the recruiting trail for the Georgia Tech football program continues to build.

The Georgia Tech football program picked up the commitment of Mount Ulla, North Carolina native and West Rowan High School standout, defensive tackle Zeek Biggers on Sunday night. Biggers announced his decision via Twitter.

Biggers, a goliath of a human standing at 6-foot-6, 335-pounds entering his senior year of high school. At that high of a weight already, it will probably be a goal of the Georgia Tech staff to slim him down a bit when he gets on campus and ensure that it is a healthy 335. Making sure he can maintain his athleticism and flexibility at the size will be important.

The 247Sports composite rankings currently have Biggers as a two-star recruit and a top-1500 player nationally. 247Sports is a bit higher on him themselves, having him ranked as a three-star recruit. Biggers is ranked by both 247Sports and Rivals as an offensive guard but according to Rivals Kelly Quinlan, Biggers committed to the Jackets as a defensive tackle.

Biggers offer  list was on the smaller side and made up a majority of group of five programs. The only other power five program to offer Biggers prior to his commitment on Sunday was the NC State Wolfpack.

He is the fourth defensive lineman to commit to the Yellow Jackets in the 2021 recruiting class joining defensive ends Joshua Robinson, Noah Collins, and Grey Caroll. He’s the seventh commitment overall in the class that currently ranks 46th nationally and eighth in the ACC.

Biggers commitment is also the latest in a string of commitments for the Yellow Jackets dating back to the end of April when safety Shawn Chappell Jr. committed to the program. Since then, the Jackets also added the aforementioned Joshua Robinson and Noah Collins.
