Bradenton (FL) Manatee offensive tackle Jake Stickler is a Georgia Tech commit but speculation had risen over how solid his commitment to the Yellow Jackets was. He clarified his status with Georgia Tech with Scout.
"I'm absolutely still 100 percent committed to Georgia Tech," said Stickler. "Right now I'm completely done with the recruiting process. I'm not looking at any other schools. I'm remaining the way I am right now with Georgia Tech. It's a great fit for me."
"I have not taken any other visits," Stickler added. "I don't plan on taking any other visits going forward either."
Stickler discussed one of the reasons why he will remain loyal to his verbal pledge to Paul Johnson's program.
"The main thing is I love the academics at the school," Stickler noted. "First and foremost I want to get a great college degree and start off the rest of my life the right way. Georgia Tech offers the best opportunity and chance for that."
The one visit Stickler has taken recently is an official to Atlanta to re-connect with the coaching staff of the Yellow Jackets. The trip helped relieve any doubts of his decision.
"It was an awesome visit," admitted Stickler. "It helped my parents become more secure with my decision. That was the main purpose for the trip. I already knew it was the school I wanted to be at but it was important to get my mom, step-dad, dad, and step-mom up there to see what I saw. It was really awesome and they fell in love with the school too."
One coach has stuck out for Stickler as the most influential in his decision to become a part of the Georgia Tech program. He shared who has been the most responsible for his loyalty.
"Coach Sewak was the most instrumental," he revealed. "I met him over the summer. I talked to him a little before that. I love the way he coaches and it came together at the camp I performed at. The way he operates really fits who I am."
