The offer led to Jake giving his verbal commit to Georgia Tech. "I am relieved to finally get the offer from Georgia Tech. Coach (Mike) Sewak has been recruiting me since my sophomore year of high school."

Coach Sewak had previously let Whitley know that if an offer came open he would get it. Tech always liked what Whitley brought to the table. "Today both he and Coach (Paul) Johnson let me know that offer was there for me and I went ahead and committed. I am real tight with the coaches especially Coach Sewak so it was easy to pull the trigger once they offered."

Georgia Tech has always been the school for Jake. "Georgia Tech is the perfect fit for me." Jake likes the fact that they are close to home. "I have a great relationship with the coaches and I value the education that I will get from Georgia Tech." The caliber of football played at Tech was another plus for Jake.

Now that he has committed to Tech, Jake is finished with his visits. "I am going to the school that I wanted to go to all along. The only visits I will make will be to Georgia Tech." Jake will be at the North Carolina game on the 21st.

The decision also was one that his parents liked. "My parents are behind this 100%. They love the education I will get and I am close to home."
