Perfect for the Triple Option @ Georgia Tech?

Yellow Jacket coaches think Daniel Drummond may be an ideal piece for the new offensive system in Atlanta.

With the coaching change at Georgia Tech, new head man Paul Johnson has his sights set on accruing specific types of players that fit his system.

And one of those players could be Flowery Branch High fullback/linebacker Daniel Drummond.

The talented 2009 prospect told Wednesday night that while he has yet to receive his first scholarship offer, he knows the Yellow Jackets are interested in him.

"They are looking at me as a player that can come in and play fullback in the triple option offense," Drummond said.

The 6-foot-3 and 230-pounder revealed that the interest is mutual.

"I am keeping an open mind about it all," Drummond said. "But if I had to say a favorite right now, it would be Georgia Tech and Auburn. But I am definitely keeping my options open."
"Georgia Tech is probably recruiting me the hardest," he added, "in terms of the amount of personalized, important mail I get from them."

Drummond's interest in the Tigers stems from the ties of his family as his father attended the SEC school. Auburn, however, is looking at him as a linebacker - a position that he excels at because of his speed and hitting ability, among other traits.

So, what position does he prefer?

"It honestly doesn't matter to me," Drummond said. "I will play either one in college. I love them both."

In addition to hearing from Auburn and Georgia Tech, Drummond is getting a lot of mail from programs such as Vanderbilt, Wake Forest and Alabama.
