Donovan Wilson 100% Ready For Georgia Tech

Jerome Wilson High School (OH) running back Donovan Wilson took an unusual path to become Georgia Tech's second commitment in the 2013 class. Once he received his offer from Georgia Tech, it didn't take him long to pull the trigger and commit to Georgia Tech.

Donovan Wilson and Georgia Tech special teams coach, Dave Walkosky built a good relationship in a short period of time. Both being from Ohio helped the relationship to grow. "I always knew where I stood with him and Georgia Tech."

Coach Walkosky let Donovan know that they would only be taking two running backs in the 2013 class. "They already had a commitment from Travis Custis so I was really hoping to get an offer from Georgia Tech." That wish came true when Coach Walkosky visited Donovan's school. "My high school coach pulled me out of class and told me that I had an offer.

After finding out about the offer, Donovan went to practice and then went home to tell his parents. "Once they said they were very happy for me I told the coaches I was committing to Georgia Tech."

Donovan made his first trip to Georgia Tech on his spring break. He knew where he wanted to go following the visit. "I fell in love with the campus and the school. I already knew I loved the football program because of the offense they run." Donovan is looking forward to being a running back in the offense."

Look for Donovan to initially start out as an A Back in Tech's option offense. "Coach Walkosky said I could move to B Back if needed" Wilson likes the idea of playing A Back. "I want to get down to Tech and meet Orwin Smith and let him give me details about the position."

There is a possibility that Wilson may be attending Georgia Tech's summer camp. "I've talked with my parents about maybe going down for the camp in June. We get out of school in two weeks, so that is a good possibility." Donovan also plans to attend some of the home games this coming season.

With his commit to Georgia Tech, Donovan has closed the door on his recruitment. "Any coach that calls me I will tell them thank you for the interest but I am going to Georgia Tech. I am a man of my word."
