Number of commitments: 25
Expected class size: 25-26
Class ranking: Tech is rated with the nation’s No. 39 class.
News of the week: It was a productive week, with the addition of two players, including North Gwinnett defensive end Anree Saint-Armour. He turned down offers from Michigan State and Iowa to play close to home. Tech also welcomed running back Marcus Marshall of Raleigh, N.C. He’s the younger brother of Georgia running back Keith Marshall. He also reported offers from Vanderbilt and Wake Forest … Brad Stewart, a receiver from Benedictine, agreed to take a visit this weekend. He’s the Class AA player of the year, and he has a grayshirt offer from Tech.
What to feel good about: There’s still a week left before signing day, but Tech has mostly avoided last-minute defections as in past years. … This year’s lone player who has reneged, receiver Brandon Singleton of Boutte, La., pledged to Cal after his visit last weekend, as expected.
What to worry about: Two defensive backs, Carrollton’s Dante Wigley and Mount Paran Christian’s Dorian Walker, got some attention from other schools, but appear to be solid to Tech, per JacketsOnline.
Quote of the week: “I think they’d like to find a scholarship (for Stewart). They could definitely use another receiver in the class. If they can figure out the numbers, they’ll give him a scholarship. I think even if he doesn’t sign with them on signing day, I think they still could even end up finding him a spot before next August.” — JacketsOnline’s Kelly Quinlan
Up next: Along with Stewart, linebacker Victor Alexander of Jacksonville, Fla., is scheduled to be at Tech his weekend. Alexander committed to UCLA, but Tech has a decent chance if he shows up on campus.
