Georgia Tech apparently has found its B-Back of the future.
Dedrick Mills, a 3-star from Ware County High School, committed to Tech on Wednesday. The running back said he picked the Yellow Jackets over offers from Auburn, Arkansas, South Carolina and Florida State.
“It felt like home … it’s just the place for me to be,” Mills told the AJC.
“I think he felt like Georgia Tech made him a priority,” Ware County coach Franklin Stephens said. “Coach Sewak has been adamant about recruiting him. He has been down here to see him, and they talk over the phone. I think Dedrick just felt like he was a priority there.”
Mills, who stands 5-foot-10 and 200 pounds, is commit No. 4 for Tech’s 2016 class.
“I think they are going to get one of those hard-nosed and relentless kids that’s going do a great job for them,” Stephens said. “He’s relentless with the things he does on the football field … He may not be a blazer (with his speed), but he’s what we call a ‘football player.’”
