Profile - Anree Saint-Amour
Monday night North Gwinnett defensive end Anree Saint-Amour decided to end his recruitment. Saint-Amour had narrowed his list to Georgia Tech, Michigan State, and Stanford. Saint-Amour decided to make his commit during an in-home visit.
“Tonight I committed to Georgia Tech.” The recruitment was a tough one for Saint-Amour. Coach Ted Roof and Georgia Tech stayed with Anree from the beginning and that was a factor in the decision.
Giving the news to Coach Roof was a relief to Anree. “I told him I wanted to commit and he jumped up and said "Great News". Everyone in the room hugged one another once the news was given. “Coach Roof kind of tackled me. He was so happy. This was a very happy time in my home tonight."
Anree did a lot of thinking the past few days and realized that Coach Paul Johnson had things going great at Tech and he wanted and needed to keep the best players in-state. “He has had a lot of good things going on right now and a lot of recruits are looking to join what he is building there. I really loved what they did in the Orange Bowl, beating a team that was ranked #1 for five straight weeks in Mississippi State.”
Anree is looking forward to joining fellow commits Tyler Cooksey, Kyle Henderson, and Brentavious Glanton and the others in the class. “They reached out to me and told me they wanted me at Georgia Tech with them. I have never felt as wanted by a team as I do with Georgia Tech."
Saint-Amour is glad that the journey is over. “I am sure you can tell by my voice how excited I am.” Anree’s family is also excited about his decision as they will have a chance to see Anree play all his games. “It took a while to make my decision but looking back, I felt like I knew Georgia Tech would be the place for me in the end. Coach Roof has been tremendous as have the whole staff.”
