Jamious Griffin was a late entry to this year’s recruiting class, committing on the actual National Signing Day in February, as opposed to the early signing period in December when most recruits sign. That doesn’t matter too much as the highest-ranked player in Georgia Tech’s 2019 class is now enrolled with everyone, and his hard work seems to give him a leg up. It’s not often that people workout this much and for this long in a graveyard of all places, but it shows Griffin and his family’s commitment to work. This should bode well for a few grueling years of college football and hopefully more in the NFL. Good luck Jamious!

As most of you all know, Geoff Collins came into the job at Tech with zero tight ends on the roster. That changed rather quickly as a couple of players switched to the position, Tyler Davis transferred in from UCONN and Collins flipped New Jersey native Dylan Deveney from Rutgers. Although he’s still very raw at this whole football thing, he has great potential and will learn a lot under the tutelage of someone like Davis, who was one of the best tight ends in the AAC the past few years.

You can always count on Barstool for interesting content, to say the least. This article is interesting because Caleb is clearly not a fan of Geoff Collins, even using quotation marks around his name at some points. While I am inclined to agree with him a little bit about how it just feels right to for Tech to run the triple option, I don’t agree that his name should be spelled Jeff. The way it’s spelled adds character. #404THECULTURE.

As with most college sports, there isn’t really ever an off season. Golf just does it differently as most players practice on their own and compete in tournaments individually throughout the summer. Ben Smith has found a way to do it right, as he and his partner Braden Falk teamed up to win the Kalamazoo Country Club Invitational recently. This win is great for Smith’s confidence as the Tech golf team gets ready to begin a new season, and it’s always nice to have another trophy on the wall. Congratulations Ben and Braden!

Paula Viapulu has a difficult name to spell, and is difficult to pass on the football field. The Texas center would be a great pickup for the Jackets’ 2020 class, and would definitely fit in with the new style of offensive lineman that Collins & Co. are looking for.

Question of the Day: Have you ever worked out in a graveyard?
