Quinton Stephens is off the board and headed to Georgia Tech.

Stephens, a standout at Atlanta (Ga.) Marist School, officially visited Brian Gregory's program over the weekend and according to Atlanta Xpress coach Winfred Jordan he couldn't wait any longer to make his choice.

"He always wanted to go to Tech, but he needed to see the other schools and make sure he was making the right decision," Jordan told "He valued it too much to wait and see if anyone was going to take his scholarship. He always wanted to play at Georgia Tech."

Jordan said Stephens gave the Yellow Jackets the official word late Saturday evening.

"He felt that he was more of an ACC type of player," Jordan said. "He wants to go into engineering."

Prior to making his choice, Stephens, a three-star recruit, also considering Miami, Clemson and Tennessee.

"He just felt like Georgia Tech fit him best, especially with the position he played," Jordan said. "He thought it was the best fit for him."

Stephens is now the second pledge for Georgia Tech in their 2013 recruiting class. The 6-foot-7 wing prospect joins four-star recruit Jacksonville (Fla.) Terry Parker standout Solomon Poole to make up their current class.
