Though he listed Georgia and Clemson as his preferences last summer, 6-4, 260 lb. lineman Terron Pullen commited to the Jackets Tuesday.
Pullen, from Johnson County High School in Wrightsville, has played both sides of the line of scrimmage and was being widely recruited as a quick-for-his-size defensive end. But it is believed the Jackets see him as an offensive guard of even greater potential.Pullen has grown since last season when he was "only" 6-3 and 250. He has a 3.4 GPA and has already scored 950 on the SAT.
One note for chronic worriers: Last year Russ tanner of Johnson County verbally committed to Tech but signed with the Dawgs at the last minute. He must have heard about Nate Dorsey. Here's hoping Pullen stays commited. Even though SuperPrep only ranked him no. 46 in Georgia, southern college coaches really wanted this kid.
