Georgia Tech Football: Yellow Jackets Add Two Commits

Geoff Collins picks up a big south Georgia offensive lineman

NCAA Football: Georgia Tech at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Georgia Tech has added yet another commitment in the form of Leesburg-native OT Wing Green. Rivals’ Russell Johnson was the first to report this on Twitter a few minutes ago.

Standing at 6-foot-7, 270 lbs., Green is literally a huge addition to this offensive line. While he will certainly bulk up after arriving on the Flats, you can’t teach the length that comes with being 6-7. He is rated as a three-star recruit by Rivals (5.5) and is currently unranked in the 247 Sports Composite and committed to Tech over other reported offers from Western Kentucky, Arkansas State, and Florida Atlantic. I realize those aren’t P5 schools, but it’s important to note that offensive line coach Brent Key was Green’s primary recruiter, so I’m guessing he saw something there that he believes he can develop into a formidable player.

I don’t have much to work with here in terms of film, since only his Spring film is currently available on Hudl. What I can tell from this is that in terms of size and length, Green is already there. Once we get some more film, we will be able to hopefully see what Key saw in him.

Update: 6/25 @ 10:30 p.m.

Well, Georgia Tech was not done adding recruits today. Miami-native EDGE Khaya Wright announced his commitment to the Yellow Jackets earlier this afternoon.

Wright stands at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, and is rated as a three-star recruit by Rivals (5.5) and is currently unranked by the 247 Sports Composite. He committed to Tech over other reported offers from Louisville, Kentucky, and Florida Atlantic, among others.

Wright continues the trend we’ve seen a lot with this recruiting class: getting commits from tall, lean pass rushers. Wright fits the trend to a “T.” Watching his film, Wright has a really good burst coming from a three and four-point stance which is nice for that position.
