The Georgia Tech football program has found their quarterback in the 2021 class as Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, CA) quarterback Chayden Peery announced his commitment to the program on Monday.
After taking two quarterbacks in the class of 2020, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have found their quarterback for the 2021 recruiting class. Three-star quarterback Chayden Peery out of the famous Sierra Canyon High School in Chatsworth, California.
While Sierra Canyon may be known more for it’s basketball, they also are strong at producing talent on the gridiron and Peery may perhaps be the next big name to come out of the Southern California power. Earlier this month, when looking at Georgia Tech’s offers at the quarterback position, we pointed out Peery as one quarterback the Yellow Jackets could end up landing, if they pushed for him.
Peery is ranked by 247Sports as a top-600 player in the national composite rankings, a top-25 pro-style quarterback in the country, and a top-60 player in the state of California. Peery has been highly recruited so far during his recruitment, totaling 25 reported offers including offers from Arizona State, Boise State, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan State, NC State, and Pittsburgh.
At 6-foot-3 and 215-pounds, Peery has great size for a Division One, Power-5 quarterback. According to his 247Sports profile, Peery took great care of the ball during his junior season for Sierra Canyon, throwing for 3,401-yards and 24 touchdowns on the season while also throwing just a single interception. On paper, there is surely a lot to like about the California native.
Overall, Peery is the 10/11 commitment of the Georgia Tech 2021 recruiting class and just the third offensive player to commit in the class joining a pair of wide receiver in four-star James Blackstrain and three-star Malik Rutherford.
Peery is the first native of The Golden State to commit to the Yellow Jackets since the 2017 recruiting class when they landed a fellow Los Angeles native and offensive lineman Boe Tufele.
