Hillgrove High School linebacker Jabari Hunt-Days came to the Georgia Tech camp wanting to show the coaches that he was one of the top linebackers in the state. He received the offer he was looking for and will be joining his brother Synjyn at Georgia Tech.
The coaches only need to see Jabari in the first of two sessions at the Junior-Senior camp. "It went really well and I thought I was one of the better linebackers today. Jabari made the switch from fullback to linebacker and was new to some of the drills he was asked to do at the camp. "The coaches said my hard work and performance really caught their eye in the first session."
Jabari had a chance to work linebacker coach Joe Speed and Al Groh. "I thought they were both great coaches and liked how they handled the players in the drills." The recruits were tested in the forty and shuttle and did position drills.
Following the first session Coach Brian Bohannon gave Jabari the offer he he'd been hoping to get. "As soon as he gave it to me, I gave him my commitment to come to Georgia Tech," said Jabari. "I wanted to come to Georgia Tech and be a part of the Georgia Tech family along with my brother." Following his commitment Jabari and his brother went out to celebrate. "Coach Bohannon said they'd seen enough that I didn't need to participate in the second session of the camp."
Everything went smoothly for Jabari and he couldn't be happier. "I was waiting and praying for the offer and I knew right then my prayers were answered" The offer also made Coach Paul Johnson happy. "He said he was glad I wanted to be part of the Yellow Jacket football team and get an education from a school like Georgia Tech."
Both linebacker coaches have already decided where they'd like to see Jabari play. "Both of them said that middle linebacker was the spot they wanted me to play, "said Jabari. "I'm 6'3"-235 so they feel I can fit right in that spot."
