Georgia Tech moved up to No. 20 overall in the team rankings after Tuesday’s commitment of TaQuon Marshall.

The 5-foot-10, 165-pound athlete from Harris County High School picked the Yellow Jackets over Wake Forest, Duke, Marshall and Cincinnati.

“It’s a great school with great academics,” Marshall told the AJC. “I felt like I fit in at Georgia Tech. They have a great coaching staff. With the other guys already committed, I felt like it would be a great class if I committed there.”

Marshall, who has yet to be rated as a prospect in the 247sports composite rankings, said he is projected to play A-Back at Georgia Tech. He will also return kicks and punts on special teams.

“I felt like I was ready to commit,” he said. “I felt like I was really sure that Georgia Tech was where I wanted to be. And I also told my parents that I wanted to go ahead and commit so I could really focus on my high school season, my teammates, and the goals we set for our season.”

Marshall is commitment No. 18 for Georgia Tech’s 2015 class. The Yellow Jackets now sit at No. 20 overall in the Rivals rankings, and have moved up to No. 30 in the 247sports composite rankings.
