The Migration has begun! Safety Miles Taylor from Washington D.C. becomes Tech's first commit for the 2014 recruiting class (his bio is below). Tech also had a Junior Day this past March 9 and I will discuss that in more detail as well...
Recruit: Miles Taylor
Recruiter: Joe Speed
The Detail: Miles Taylor is a smart and hard-nosed Safety prospect from the Washington D.C. area. His tape shows a player that is a tough tackler, takes good angles, reads the QB and reacts quickly, and shows fire on the field. He is from the fertile DC Catholic league, and its pretty easy to notice the better size, strength, and speed of that league in the film...and he makes a ton of plays on the defensive side of the ball. His only D1 offer up to this point has been Temple, so I have a theory...The kid's film is too good not to have more offers. Tech might have gotten in super early on him and the hard work recruiting the NE might beginning to pay dividends.
Tech recently hosted a Junior day on campus for several recruits to make unofficial visits and get a more in-depth look at the Georgia Tech program. Some prospects had offers already in hand before the event (separated below) along with their prospective position and state (I know more about the offered guys, sorry for no links).
Those who attended with offers...RB Jamauri Bogan (NJ), OL Gary Brown (FL), DB Malcolm Buggs (AL), DB Zykiesis Cannon (SC), ATH Donquell Green (GA), DB Kalen McLain (NC), QB Malkom Parrish (GA), DB Stephen Roberts (AL), DL Michael Sawyers (TN), RB Ito Smith (AL), DB Miles Taylor (DC) - COMMIT, RB Donte Thomas-Williams (NC)
A few notes...Bogan left Atlanta with GT as his favorite...McClain and Thomas-Williams were teammates of Vad Lee at Hillside HS in Durham, NC...Buggs and Roberts are teammates from Opelika, AL...Malkom Parrish could play either side of the ball and likes GT a lot.
Those who attended awaiting offers...QB Tymashian Clemons (GA), WR Nate Brown (GA), RB CJ Fuller (SC), DL Tyler Jones (AL), LB Spencer Kleinrichert (DC),RB CJ Leggett (GA), DB Kam Lott (FL), ATH Cam Seward (GA), OL CJ Collins (GA), DB Will Cape (GA), OL Chandler Greer (TN)
So there it is...the 2014 recruiting class is off and running. Are you excited to see the first commit?
