The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets football team landed a significant commit yesterday. Offensive lineman Tyler Gibson, a four-star recruit, has announced his decision to commit to the Yellow Jackets. The Johns Creek, Georgia native had offers from other schools including from the power-five conferences. His decision to commit to Tech makes him the eight recruit of the 2022 class. He’s also the first four-star offensive lineman to commit to the Yellow Jackets in the Geoff Collins era. While Gibson won’t officially be joining the team until the summer of 2022, it’s never too early to extend him a warm welcome. Welcome to The Flats!
Jose Alvarado has a big decision ahead of him. As the article mentions, he wasn’t invited to the NBA Combine though he did attend the G League camp. Now he will have to decide whether to proceed with his plan to enter the NBA draft or return to Tech for another season. The prospect of playing at the next level must be attractive for any player, so it’s understandable if Alvarado decides to enter the draft. But for Tech fans, he would definitely be welcomed back for another season on The Flats.
Summer just started, but before you know it, August will be here and then fall and the football season. There will be a lot of new players to watch out for. This series focuses on five of them and this particular article focuses on Keion White. White transferred to Georgia Tech from Old Dominion but sat out last year because of Covid. Formerly a tight end, White will be playing defensive end for the Yellow Jackets. As the article mentions, while there was a lot of competition at the edge rusher position, at least three backups will not be around, so he has a very good chance to become a starter for the team.
