"Yes, I am definitely solid with Georgia Tech," said Brad Jefferson. "In fact, I went to Georgia Tech for an official visit this weekend. It went very well. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. We went out on a tour of the city. You know, where I'm from, we're not used to that kind of city life. Robert Hall was my host. We went to a party, and then, we went out to eat. I got to hang out with Jerrard Tarrant, Joseph Gilbert and a lot of the other recruits that were there."
"You can't argue with a school that has great academics and a great football program altogether. This is going to be a very special class and I'm just happy to be a part of it. I'm ready to do what ever it takes to get this team to the Championship."
Georgia Tech is currently ranked 4th nationally by the Scout.com National Team Recruiting Rankings. Led by the efforts of recruiting coordinator Giff Smith, Georgia Tech has racked up of many of the state's top prospects. Jonathan Dwyer, Nick Claytor, D.J. Donley, Josh Nesbitt, Willie White and Roddy Jones are all Scout.com four-star commitments.
Jefferson, a three-star prospect explains why Georgia Tech has been so successful.
"It's a great place," he said. "Everybody is just like a big family. It seems like we've known everybody for years. Giff Smith is my recruiting coach and everybody likes coach Smith. I can call him anytime. He's not just my coach, he's my friend. I can tell him anything."
One factor in Jefferson's decision was the opportunity to play as a true freshman.
"They said I had good chance at playing my freshmen year," said Jefferson. "They said I had a great chance at playing special teams. I really hope to get in on special teams."
At 6-foot-0, 210 pounds, Jefferson is always around the ball making plays. He is a highly competitive player who consistently hustles and chases hard after the ball carrier in pursuit. His aggressive playing style helps him make some big time hits/tackles when he stays under control.
