Well, if you still thought Georgia Tech was going to run any semblance of the flexbone, let tonight’s news dissuade you:
Tech’s first TE commit in a decade, Deveney was originally committed to Rutgers, but after meeting with Coach Geoff Collins and visiting campus this weekend, he decommitted from the Scarlet Knights yesterday and joined Tech’s 2019 recruiting class just two short days before the December National Signing Day.
Deveney comes to the Flats from the Hun School in Princeton, NJ. He’s 6’6” and 245 lbs, a prototypical size for a TE. He’s only played football since his junior year of high school, but what he lacks in experience he makes up for in size, his ability to use that size to his advantage, and his catching ability. He’s not explosive off the line and he’ll need to get lower to help block because of his height, but his frame and his size help him fight opposing linebackers and corners for the ball. Even with only two seasons of HS football under his belt, 247 has Deveney rated as a 3-star recruit, so he shows a lot of raw talent and potential.
The Collins Trolley continues to roll on this winter. With signing day only two days away and with Tech’s top recruits reaffirming their commitments to the Institute after the last two weeks of official visits, the Jackets are starting to build a lot of momentum heading into 2019.
