Number of commitments: 24
Expected class size: 24-26
Class ranking: Tech is rated with the nation’s No. 41 class.
News of the week: Tech lost the first commit for the 2015 class when WR Brandon Singleton of Louisiana backed off his pledge to the Yellow Jackets on Wednesday night. Singleton, who picked Georgia Tech last summer, de-committed because he wants to visit Cal this weekend. He also has an offer from Minnesota, along with interest from UGA and Miami … Singleton’s departure ignited heavy speculation that Georgia Tech might offer his spot to Brad Stewart, the Class AA Player of the Year. Stewart, who is a wide receiver from Savannah’s Benedictine Military School, got an in-home visit from Paul Johnson on Monday. Johnson made Stewart a grayshirt offer and promised him a spot if one became available earlier … Tech brought in two uncommitted prospects for official visits last weekend, and both pledged to the Yellow Jackets before leaving campus. Dorian Walker is a 6-foot cornerback from Mount Paran Christian who could get a look at running back. Walker picked Tech over Wake Forest. The other commit was Buford defensive back David Curry
What to feel good about: Tech registered its first flip for this class when Curry switched from Virginia. He had been committed to the Cavaliers since last summer. Curry played football at Buford with the twin sons of Tech defensive coordinator Ted Roof.
What to worry about: Will there be any more defections after Singleton?
Quote of the week: “This class is very strong. They’ve done a nice job of keeping it together and building some unity among the guys who are committed. They all have a bond with each other, and I think that’s made a huge difference in avoiding massive de-commitments like a lot of other schools.” — JacketsOnline’s Kelly Quinlan
Up next: Running back Marcus Marshall of Raleigh, N.C., the younger brother of UGA’s Keith Marshall, and defensive end Dylan Jackson of Maryville, Tenn., once committed to Tennessee, are among this weekend’s visitors.
