For the second day in a row, Georgia Tech has added to its recruiting class by flipping a player committed to a lower-tier school.

One day after adding their first commitment in 6 weeks, the Jackets have added another. Only a few days after receiving his official scholarship offer, Kelly Quinlan of JacketsOnline reported that WR Jalen Camp had flipped to Georgia Tech:

Camp flipped to Georgia Tech from a previous commitment to Liberty. The 6'2", 210-pound wide receiver is from South Forsyth High School in ("World Famous") Cumming, GA. Aside from Liberty, Camp had no other major offers, although he did have reported interest from georgia, Cincinnati, and Indiana. He played both ways in high school, as a wide receiver on offense and a safety on defense. Camp is the first player to commit to Georgia Tech from South Forsyth since LB Kyle Travis in 2011, and only the second skill position player from SFHS to commit to an FBS program in that time.

Though not a particularly highly-rated recruit, there's quite a bit to like about Camp's senior highlights. As a wide receiver, he displays a particularly impressive set of hands, and does very well on jump balls (without the luxury of abnormal height). On defense, he shows a real nose for the ball and generally has good ball skills. In terms of speed, he's not exactly a track star, but he won't necessarily need to be if he's to have success in Georgia Tech's offense.

Camp is a 2-star recruit per Rivals (5.2) and the 247Sports Composite (.7667).
