"I made my commitment to Georgia Tech earlier today," said Jerrard Tarrant from Carrollton, (Ga.). "I felt like it was the best time for me to go ahead and commit. I didn't want to risk losing my scholarship if I got hurt."
"I felt like Georgia Tech was the best fit for me."
Tarrant has several reasons for making an early decision.
"I really liked the atmosphere when I went up there," he said. "I talked to a few of their players, and they seemed really cool."
The 6-0, 185-pound safety spoke to one coach this afternoon about his decision.
"I called and talked to coach Joe D'Alessandris," Tarrant said. "He said he was very proud I committed. He said I made the right decision."
When asked if he would take additional visits Tarrant replied, "No I will not. I am 100% committed to Georgia Tech."
Tarrant recorded over 50 tackles as a junior and added four interceptions as well.
