On Oct. 24, Paul Hewitt's team scored a huge commitment from No. 7 prospect Thaddeus Young. The Memphis Mitchell prospect made Tech's year and boosted them into elite recruiting class status. However, Young's commitment isn't the only significant one the Jackets landed.
Hewitt's first key recruit of the year was point guard Javaris Crittenton, Scout.com's No. 15 prospect. The local guard got the ball rolling for the Jackets and together. Add in Brad Sheehan and Zach Peacock and you've got quite a contingent headed to Atlanta.
However, we reward programs for landing the big timers with two Top 15 prospects, the Jackets are back in business in the ACC in the winter of 2006!
Check out the video of Tech's two highest rated recruits!
