How Solid is Commissiong to Georgia Tech?

Since his commitment to Georgia Tech on May 18th, Bishop McNamara, Maryland defensive tackle Darius Commissiong has continued to hear from other schools. We talked to Darius about how solid he is with his commit to Georgia Tech.

Darius Commissiong and his teammates are getting ready to prepare for their season opener on August 25th in the Patriot Classic. "It will be great to get back to the grind. I just picked up my pads and helmet and we start two a days on Thursday."

Even though he is committed to Georgia Tech,five schools have continued to recruit him. "Penn State, Clemson, Maryland, North Carolina, and North Carolina State are recruiting me hard."

In spite of the interest from those schools, Darius has no plans to visit any of them. "I am very solid with my commitment to Georgia Tech. I made my commitment to them and I don't see me changing it."

Commissiong keeps in touch with Georgia Tech defensive coordinator Al Groh weekly. "I am going to call him today and just check in with him and catch up with one another."

Coach Groh has let Darius know how much he is looking forward to having him at Georgia Tech. "He says I should see early playing time." Darius feels if he continues to work on his strength that could be a possibility.

Darius is heading into his senior season at 6'3"-305. He knows from looking at the depth chart that he could be part of the nose tackle rotation. "Right now it would be Shawn Green, Adam Gostis and myself as nose tackles."

Bishop McNamara teammate Kevin Robbins and Darius are looking forward to playing together at Tech. "Personally I feel Kevin will play early and often. He is a freakish athlete at outside linebacker where Georgia Tech wants him to play and is already around 240 pounds which is where the current players are at outside linebacker."

Darius is looking forward to being a student-athlete at Georgia Tech. "I want to show what I can do on the field and I am looking forward to getting a great education from Georgia Tech. In my family we take academics seriously."
