Scout's Take: GT's New Commitments

Georgia Tech picked up four commitments in a span of about three days late last week and all were in-state prospects. Southeastern Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons breaks them down here in this edition of Scout's Take.

Paul Johnson and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets had a strong finish to last week when they pulled in commitments from four Peach State prospects.

They picked up commitments from a versatile athlete, two offensive linemen, and one of the top defensive backs in Georgia.

Here is a look at what GT is getting in these players.

Breaking Down GT's Last Four Commitments
B.J. Bostic – 5-11/170 - CB/WR – Jefferson County
The Skinny: Bostic is a very talented athlete that could play on either side of the ball on the next level, but he has committed to Georgia Tech as a cornerback. He has very god ball skills, he will play physical, and he has a lot of room to grow at that position. He will have to work on his back peddle, his balance on the edge, and just learning the position. The raw athleticism is what stands out the most about Bostic.
Isaiah Johnson – 6-2/180 - S – Sandy Creek
The Skinny: Johnson is a sound safety against the run and the pass. He does a good job of reading the quarterback to put him into position to make plays against the pass. He is a solid tackler against the run, but he needs to work on taking better angles and getting into the right lanes. Overall, Johnson is one of the best in Ga. at his position and he will be a good one for Tech. Speed is good, not great, but instincts, coverage skills, and intelligence are strong points.
Catlin Alford – 6-4/270 - OL – Adairsville
The Skinny: Alford is very athletic for a big man and he could have played offensive guard, defensive tackle, or possibly tight end on the next level, but he going to Georgia Tech strictly as an offensive lineman. He plays with a lot of raw power and he has good flexibility. He is a straight drive run blocker on the OL and he should fit in very nicely in Atlanta. Hands and extension are two things he can work on.
Morgan Bailey – 6-5/285 - OL – Loganville
The Skinny: Bailey is one of the best offensive linemen in the Peach State this year and one reason he is thought of so highly is the way that he finishes off his blocks. He plays until the whistle blows, he tries to put guys on their backs, and he has the attitude all OLs should have. He is a tweener between tackle and guard for a lot of schools, but he could fit in well at either spot in Georgia Tech's system. He has good leg drive, he has nice punch, and good strength.
