Arizona QB Makes Commitment

Sean Renfree from Notre Dame Prep (Scottsdale, AZ) quickly came to be one of the hottest quarterback prospects in the country after a great performance at the Scout.com All America combine in San Francisco. That performance helped catapult him to offers from several major programs. The recruiting process ended today as Renfree announced his college intentions.

3-star quarterback Sean Renfree sent Scout.com a text message this morning saying, "I'm headed to Georgia Tech."

 

The 6-3 205 pound Renfree chose the Yellow Jackets over offers from Stanford, Oregon State, Boise State, Army, Arizona State and Arizona.

 

Renfree also emailed Southwest Recruiting Analyst Jason Jewell a prepared statement, it reads:

 

"I feel very fortunate and blessed to have met such great coaches and people during the recruiting process. I had offers from excellent programs and schools, so my choice was pretty tough. I wanted to wait until the end of June, after I completed my visits, so I could thoroughly review the pros and cons of all of the schools with my parents and coach, but after visiting Georgia Tech on June 9, I just knew deep down that is where I wanted to go. I am very pleased and honored to be attending Georgia Tech. I think the program offers the best possible combination of academics and athletics. They are a top ranked university and engineering school, with two of their engineering programs ranked #1 in the country, which at the present, is what I would like to study. Their coaching staff is very family oriented, young, and energetic. I developed very good relationships with offensive Coaches Bond and Modkins, as well as Coach Gailey, who is one of the most experienced coaches in college football. I have already formed a good relationship with one of their other commits, Chris Jackson, whom I text with a lot. The ACC is a very exciting conference, in which I think they will win consistently. They are definitely a team on the rise, and with the recruits they have brought in over the past few years, I am confident that they will be competing in a National Championship soon. I would like to be a part of that and make the most of the experience, since playing college football is a great opportunity that doesn't come around often.  I have family in the area, so it will also be fun to see them more regularly, as well as experiencing living in a different part of the country. The recruiting process has been a lot of fun, and a great privilege, but I am relieved to have it over, so I can now focus my time and energy on helping Chris Jackson and the rest of the 2008 GT commits recruit another great class, and also to help my high school team win a state championship this season.  Go Jackets!"

 

Last season he passed for 2483 yards and completed 56% of his passes. He also threw 25 TDs versus only 5 INTs.

 

The Yellow Jackets are getting a QB with good pocket presence, a strong arm and a quick release. Here is footage of Sean from his junior season:
