The Yellow Jackets have had their first decommitment of the 2017 class.

After a pair of commitments in late November, Georgia Tech’s 2017 recruiting class shrank on Friday when DB O.J. Tucker decided to decommit. The 3-star native of Ocala, FL didn’t post an announcement on Twitter, but called to inform the coaching staff and retweeted multiple articles covering his change of heart.

After committing in early August, the Yellow Jackets added two more defensive backs in the following weeks, with Gentry Bonds’ commitment on August 17th and Tre’ Swilling’s commitment less than a week after that. Including the previous commitments of Dameon Williams and Jaytlin Askew, Tucker was the lowest-rated commitment of the group in the 247Sports Composite. Tucker still intends to visit the Flats on January 27th-29th, but will now also visit Maryland and Wake Forest in the weekends leading up to that one.

Tucker’s decommitment reduces Georgia Tech to 14 commitments for its 2017 recruiting class. It now looks like this:
