What does Nick Chubb look like in old gold? Stay tuned.

One of the most promising new faces on the 2015 football team will be freshman A-Back Omahri Jarrett, a three-star recruit from Douglasville. While it is still unclear if Jarrett will redshirt or not for 2015, he certainly promises to contribute at some time in the near future. This is especially true if he is a willing and able blocker, as the article suggests he is. Guys who can block at a high level in Paul Johnson's system are invaluable, particularly at the A-Back position, and have an immediate advantage even if the explosiveness isn't there (as was the case with Dennis Andrews).

Recent Georgia Tech commit Jakob Brashear, a two-way player from Dacula High School, is pumped to begin his college career as a Yellow Jacket, writes the AJC. Brashear committed to the Jackets back in March over reported offers from Air Force, Elon, and Illinois State. While that offer list may not inspire you, don't think for a second that Brashear isn't a division one talent. Interest will almost certainly pick up after his upcoming senior season, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him add a third star if all goes well.

Although most Georgia Tech fans have thrown in the towel on the 2015 basketball season before first tip, CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein sees the Jackets as a potential bubble team for the NCAA Tournament as a result of the talent added via transfer. I'm not ready to commit to being a tournament bubble team quite yet, but there is certainly reason to expect that the team will be much-improved from last season. If Tadric Jackson can find his stride, I think Marcus Georges-Hunt and a talented frontcourt could help achieve the best season of the Brian Gregory era and perhaps the best since the peak Hewitt days. There are tons of ifs to consider, but the foundation for success appears to be in tact.

It is entirely possible that I'm just an easily-entertained person, but I'll leave you today with what I found to be a very weird but interesting look at what each team's jersey would look like in the colors of a bitter rival. I came in expecting everything to look like straight fire, but some of those might actually be improvements over the original uniforms. It is also worth noting that every single team which was given FSU's signature garnet and gold looked.... pretty awesome. The Big 10 just needs to keep things the way they are.

Which A-Back from the upcoming class do you think will make an immediate impact?
