Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Recruiting: ATH Myles Autry Commits

Will we see the Autry brothers in Georgia Tech's end zone regularly over the coming years? - Danny Karnik/Georgia Tech Athletics

It's been a long, strange saga for Myles Autry, but it ended Wednesday as he signed with Georgia Tech.

Myles Autry was a four-star ATH who played wide receiver, defensive back, kick returner, and punt returner, and had a lot of interest from schools nationwide prior to injuring his knee as a junior in high school. Rehabbing that injury didn't go particularly well for Autry, and the start to his senior season was fairly rough, resulting in many teams backing off that interest. There was always one team there though: Georgia Tech, the school his brother Anthony called home.

Autry visited Georgia Tech and Florida State at the end of January, although he mentioned interest in uga, Florida, Oregon, and Ohio State as well (it should be noted that there are no indications of returned interest from those four schools). Though his recovery was a struggle early in the football season, Autry was at 100% health by the end of the season and made a few major plays late in the playoffs as Norcross was on its way to a state championship.

Autry brings electric playmaking abilities to the table, with the capability to go the distance any time he touches the ball. He runs with great balance, quickness, and top-end speed, and he really has a knack for navigating his way through traffic (his natural tendency to follow his blocks downfield is very impressive too). He also catches well in all ranges of the field, although his routes aren't particularly crisp. If I had to compare him to a current Tech player, I'd say his running style is that of Synjyn Days, with the skillset of B.J. Bostic -- not bad company to be compared to at all.

Autry can end up being a major playmaker for Georgia Tech at the A-Back and kick/punt returner positions. He might end up one of the most valuable pickups in this class.

Happy we got Anthony's brother? Expecting big things from him? Think he's a guy who plays as a true freshman?
