2012 #1, Red and Black to White and Gold

The Jackets have offered Junior Gnonkonde and he has accepted that offer to play at Georgia Tech. Gnonkonde will be the first commit of the 2012 class and will likely play at outside linebacker, but could play defensive end if he adds some weight.

Junior Gnonkonde is a defensive player with a motor. He wears the red and black of Lanier County, but will sport the white and Gold at Georgia Tech. He has received an offer to play for Georgia Tech and has accepted that offer to come play under the tutelage of Al Groh. He will likely start at the outside linebacker position.

Georgia Tech has made a lot of offers early and Gnonkonde is the first to accept to play on the Flats. The Jackets hope the trend continues and that others follow in Gnonkonde's steps to make the class of 2012 a special one.
