Profile - Tyler Cooksey
When we last talked to GAC (Georgia)linebacker Tyler Cooksey, he mentioned that he had planned to make a decision in two weeks. Tyler decided that Father's Day would be the perfect day to make that decision.
Today he decided to follow in his dad's footsteps. "I have decided to go to Georgia Tech." The idea to make the decision on Father's Day didn't pop into Tyler's head until he remembered that Father's Day was this weekend.
Cooksey was going to announce his decision earlier but decided to wait until today to announce his choice. "It will make a good gift for my dad. He wasn't pressuring me into to Tech but I knew he wanted me to go there."
The recent visits to Tech convinced Tyler that he wanted to be a Tech legacy. "I just got to thinking I wanted to continue the Cooksey legacy at Georgia Tech. I also want to help Georgia Tech beat the Dawgs every year I'm there. Tech is just the place for me to be."
Will his dad shed a tear when he finds out? "I've never seen him cry or shed a tear. "You never know when it comes to something like this."
The decision to attend Georgia Tech ends Tyler's recruitment. "I am set to be a Yellow Jacket."
