Recap of Georgia Tech’s biggest recruiting weekend of year

Comments 0

Georgia Tech had its biggest recruiting weekend of the year with around 10 prospects on official visits.

Nine of the 10 players were already committed to Georgia Tech, and they spent a lot of time over the weekend working on the one who wasn’t pledged to the Yellow Jackets – 3-star defensive tackle Michael Sawyers of Nashville.

The 6-foot-2, 300-pound Sawyers de-committed from Vanderbilt after the coaching change. He’s now considering the Yellow Jackets, along with Ole Miss, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.

“Yes, we got to spend a lot of time with Mike — we’re trying to get him on board to come to Georgia Tech, too,” said Lamar County High School defensive back Lawrence Austin, who is committed to Georgia Tech along with his twin brother, Lance Austin.

“(Sawyers) told us he really liked Georgia Tech, and that’s the reason why he came back for a visit. He’s got some other visits coming up, but I feel good about our chances. I think they are pretty good. He really enjoyed his visit.”

This weekend’s visitors who were already committed to Georgia Tech included WR Jalen Johnson, TE Trey Klock, LB Terrell Lewis, OL Andrew Marshall, WR-DB Qua Searcy, DE Antonio Simmons and DB Miles Taylor.

“I had a basketball game Friday night so I arrived late but I had a great time at GT,” Klock told the AJC.

“I had the chance to meet a lot more of the commits and spend time with the players and coaches. I enjoyed bowling and playing pool with the coaches and was surprised at how good Coach (Paul Johnson) is at ping pong!

“My family and I went to the Coca-Cola factory and checked out a lot of attractions in Atlanta. I also had meetings with Coach Sewak and Coach Johnson and we accomplished a lot of things and I now have a better understanding of what to expect.”
