The Yellow Jackets flipped one of UCLA’s recruits on the final weekend before signing day, per JacketsOnline.

Victor Alexander, a 3-star linebacker from Jacksonville, Fla., is on an official visit with Tech this weekend.

Alexander hasn’t talked to the media yet. but a member of his family taped the reaction around Alexander after he committed and posted it on Facebook.

You can see Tech recruiting coordinator Andy McCollum walking out with Alexander, who is then hugged by other Tech coaches and players.

It’s a pretty awesome insider’s view of the recruiting world.

Alexander is Tech’s third flip of this year’s class, following Buford safety David Curry (UVA) and running back Quaide Weimerskirch of Pace, Fla. (Louiana-Lafayette). The Yellow Jackets also lost Brandon Singleton to Cal.

Georgia Tech now has 26 commitments for 2015, and the Jackets are still trying to find spot for wide receiver Brad Stewart of Savannah. He is also on an official visit with the Jackets.
