IT'S OFFICAL

The 2009 Georgia Tech recruiting class is generating a lot of Buzz. Already off to an excellent start, this week things have only gotten better. On Tuesday, the Jackets received a commitment from 4 star PG Mfon Udofia. Today, the Jackets received yet another commitment from a talented guard prospect. This time the pledge was from 2009 SG Glen Rice, Jr.

There have been hearing rumblings all week that Glen Rice Jr. could commit to the Yellow Jackets, and today, he made it official. Shortly after his opening game in the Super Showcase in Orlando, Glen Rice, Jr. committed to the Yellow Jackets over ACC rivals Miami and Florida State.

As a Jr. at Walton High School in Marietta, GA, Glen Rice, Jr. averaged 25 points, 6 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 4 steals per game. At 6'5 180, he has the height and long wing span that Coach Paul Hewitt loves in his guards. While his father was known for his excellent long range shooting, Glen scores his points in a variety of ways such as floaters, dunks, and pull-up jumpers. Presently not ranked in Scout.com's Top 100, Rice has seen his stock rise as much as anyone this summer. He should be a lock to jump into the rankings when they are released following the AAU season.

He becomes the Yellow Jacket's 4th commitment in the 2009 class, and he joins Mfon Udofia, Kammeon Holsey, and Brian Oliver in what has the makings of one of Georgia Tech's deepest and most talented classes in the Paul Hewitt era and possibly of all time.
