Quaide Weimerskirch, a 3-star running back from Florida, has switched his committed from Louisiana-Lafayette to Georgia Tech.

“It’s a great school,” Weimerskirch told the AJC. “They’ve got good academics, and a good football team. This was the offer that I had been waiting on. Everything happened pretty quickly because I wanted to go ahead and lock the spot down.”

The 6-foot, 200-pounder committed to Louisiana-Lafayette last July but continued flirting with Georgia Tech. Everything got intense after the Yellow Jackets finally extended a scholarship offer last Thursday.

“I had to do some things with Louisiana-Lafayette before I officially committed and put it out there,” Weimerskirch said. “Louisiana-Lafayette was understanding about it, and they said they didn’t have hard feelings. Once I talked to them, I was 100-percent in with Georgia Tech.”

Weimerskirch, who is German descent, is commit No. 21 for Georgia Tech’s 2015 recruiting class. He is the second commit at B-Back, along with Mikell Lands-Davis. Weimerskirch said he’s a North-South runner who is known for “doing whatever it takes to get the extra yard.”

And what about the signature long hair? “I like it that way,” he said, “It’s something I’ve had since the fourth grade.”

Weimerskirch is an early enrollee and is expected to begin classes at Georgia Tech in January.
