Technical Tidbits 5/11: Georgia Tech Football Gains Two Commits

New, 6 comments

Both are defensive linemen.

The pipeline from Grayson High School to Georgia Tech is flowing. DE Noah Collins is the third commit to come from Loganville, GA in Geoff Collins’ tenure. Collins joins WR Ryan King and ATH Jamal Haynes as the Rams heading to the Flats. In the case of Collins, he initially committed to UCF in early February, but spurned the Knights to come to Atlanta. Collins has good speed and uses his hands well, he is a great pickup for the Jackets.

The commitments didn’t stop with Collins, as DT Zeek Biggers out of Mount Ulla, NC committed to Tech this past weekend. Besides Tech, Biggers held offers from N.C. State, Temple, and East Carolina. Biggers is a big man, standing at 6’-6” and 335 pounds, and is slated to play at the 3-tech position on the defensive line. He’s got great potential and should hopefully have an incredible career on the Flats.

Saba Gigiberia was the highest rated of the Tech Basketball team’s class of 2020 signees, and took the longest journey to get to the Flats. Gigiberia is originally from the nation of Georgia, and at age 14 moved to Spain in order to further his basketball career. After a couple of seasons, Gigiberia went to Findlay Prep in Henderson, NV, which closed its doors while he was on the team. The Georgian finally found his high school home at Prolific Prep in Napa, CA, where he was teammates with top players like Jalen Green and Nimari Burnett. Gigiberia is in line for some big minutes this coming season with James Banks gone, let’s hope he makes the most of his opportunity.

The academic numbers from the article above are absolutely incredible. Tech student-athletes finished the Spring 2020 semester with a mean 3.23 GPA, the highest in school history by .23 points. 13 of 14 varsity teams had average GPAs higher than 3.0, and many student athletes made the Dean’s List. These numbers show the dedication and drive that Tech student-athletes have to succeed on and off the playing surface. Congratulations, everyone!

Nice.
