The Yellow Jackets have already reeled in one commitment for the 2015 class in offensive lineman Will Bryan. Who else could join the fold? Today we take a look at some of the offered offensive players. There will be others getting offers and joining the list once Junior Day visits begin.
Jauan Jennings. Four-star athlete. Murfreesboro (TN) Blackman. He's rated as the nation's 12th best safety in the 2015 class but also has some ability at quarterback. He'd fit Georgia Tech's offense as a quarterback whereas other schools will recruit him for defense. That may make the Yellow Jackets more appealing.
Jaylend Ratliffe. Three-star quarterback. Laurinburg (NC) Scotland. He's been told by the Georgia Tech staff he's their top option at quarterback for the 2015 class. The Yellow Jackets are recruiting him the hardest but he also has offers from in-state North Carolina and North Carolina State.
Alex Anderson. Three-star running back. Miramar (FL). Anderson holds seven offers including one from the Jackets. As far as distance, Georgia Tech is the closest school to where he's from that has pulled the trigger on an offer.
Shi'kim Coward. Three-star running back. Niceville (FL). In a story earlier on in the year Coward expressed a desire to visit Georgia Tech. Despite hoping for other offers to come through, he has minted a decent level of interest in the Yellow Jackets' program.
Joshua Thomas. Three-star running back. Buford (GA). Georgia Tech and Ted Roof have put a lot of emphasis and attention on Buford High School. Thomas has a good collection of offers and the Jackets have made Buford a priority giving them an opportunity to land Thomas. He also can line up at linebacker.
Keyston Fuller. Three-star wide receiver. Griffin (GA). Georgia Tech was one of the first schools to identify Fuller as a big-time prospect and that could pay off dividends for them in the future. He also holds an offer from North Carolina.
Juwan Johnson. Three-star wide receiver. Glassboro (NJ). Johnson also resides in an area that Georgia Tech has placed an emphasis on lately. The New Jersey product has offers from nearby schools but has the size to succeed in Georgia Tech's offense.
Jaason Lewis. Four-star wide receiver. Virginia Beach (VA) Ocean Lakes. He wants to make a decision in February or March and has Georgia Tech tied at the top with Tennessee, UCLA, and Florida State. His love for Atlanta and having family in the area has aided the Jackets. We expect him to choose Georgia Tech or Tennessee at this point.
Trey Derouen. Three-star offensive guard. Lilburn (GA) Parkview. He lists two offers in Georgia Tech and Vanderbilt. The Jackets have done a great job identifying their offensive line targets early on and he is another example.
Jackson Harris. Four-star offensive tackle. Columbia (TN) Central. The Yellow Jackets are one of the only schools recruiting Harris as an offensive tackle, as other schools think he can play tight end. Harris had a teammate already go to Georgia Tech and is interested in engineering, giving the Jackets a few built-in advantages.
Harrison Moon. Three-star offensive tackle. Signal Mountain (TN). Georgia Tech is also one of the few programs that like Moon on the offensive line. He's being recruited by many as a tight end as well. Moon was invited to a Georgia Tech bowl practice showing the interest the staff has in him as a prospect.
Nick Polino. Three-star offensive tackle. Buford (GA). Another product from Buford that the Yellow Jackets have recruited aggressive early on. I'd have Georgia Tech as his leader as of now.
