Yesterday, SF Jalon Moore announced his commitment to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets for the class of 2021. Moore is from Gardendale, Alabama, and is a consensus three-star recruit (.9275 247 Composite) that falls in the top 150 for both 247 and Rivals. Moore is a welcome addition to Josh Pastner’s best class as the Yellow Jacket head coach, which includes top 50 SG Deebo Coleman and top 115 CG Miles Kelly. Moore’s commitment brings the Jackets to 247Sports’ no. 17 recruiting class in the nation and no. 3 class in the ACC. Welcome to the Flats, Jalon!
Georgia Tech football’s 2020 recruiting class was its best in years, finishing no. 27 nationally according to 247Sports. Strong play by two of the top recruits in the class, Jahmyr Gibbs and Jeff Sims, has led Bleacher Report to re-rank the Yellow Jackets’ 2020 class as no. 8 in the nation. Tech’s ranking falls right behind Kansas State and just in front of Miami (lol). For me, the most interesting part about the article above was learning about the Wildcats’ stud 5’5” RB, Deuce Vaughn. Keep it up, freshmen Jackets!
While just a sophomore, Georgia Tech outside hitter Julia Bergmann has been an integral part of the volleyball team the past two seasons. Besides leading the Jackets to a NIVC Championship, Bergmann was the 2019 ACC Freshman of the Year and was a First Team All-ACC honoree. In this year’s shortened fall season, Bergmann helped Tech to a 7-1 record, including five straight shutouts.
The Georgia Tech Swimming and Diving team got off to a later start than other non-rev sports, like track and field and volleyball. The team will begin their season in Tallahassee, Florida for the FSU Invite. This is a dual meet, and will be one of two this fall, the other being against georgia in Athens. Good luck, Jackets!
Begin your second bye weekend by looking at these records that Juanyeh Thomas has broken in just over two seasons on the Flats.
Question of the Day: What do you think about Tech’s basketball recruiting class so far?
