GT Camp Recap

The Georgia Tech camp on Saturday was very fruitful for the Yellow Jackets football program. Two recruits committed during the camp while several others received personal attention from the coaching staff.

The two commits, Isaiah Johnson a top safety from Peachtree City and Catlin Alford an offensive lineman from Adairsville were heavy leans heading into the camp.

Several other key targets did not commit on Saturday, but enjoyed their visit. Four-star defensive end Anthony Williams said the coaches rolled out the red carpet for him on Saturday.

"They really put on the full-court press and I had a great time today visiting and hanging out," Williams said.

Another four-star athlete, cornerback Ryan Ayers enjoyed the trip so much that he put on his cleats for the second session in the stadium and compete with recent Yellow Jacket commitment Barry Bostic at cornerback.

Bostic showed off his athleticism defending several passes and intercepting another during some one-on-one drills with receivers and running backs. Safety Fred Holton was also impressive during the same drill.

Several other defensive backs stood out during practice including three-star cornerback James Scales.

Unfortunately, for the Georgia Tech coaching staff top linebacker target Tyrone Cornileus was unable to attend the camp due to a family emergency.

Quarterback situation uncertain

The showdown between Florida quarterback Ryan White and North Carolina quarterback Gabriel Henderson highlighted the differences between the two quarterbacks. White was lightning fast during the speed drills while Henderson impressed people with his arm and accuracy.

White was offered during the camp, but he plans to travel up to South Carolina for their upcoming camp where he is being recruited as a slot receiver.

2011 Targets Impress

Kell High School junior wide receiver Brian Randolph was one of the most impressive performers during the camp. Randolph has offers from both Georgia Tech and UGA.

Another impressive performer was quarterback Kane Whitehurst from Northview High School. Whitehurst's teammate Denzel McCoy is a 2010 verbal commitment for the Yellow Jackets, but he has strong ties to Clemson where his brother Charlie Whitehurst was a standout quarterback four years ago. Whitehurst worked out at both quarterback and wide receiver during the camp.

Under the Radar

Tallahassee running back Jordan Stanley had an impressive performance during the camp. Another running back Fedale Hall also stood out, but with Charles Perkins on board it is unlikely the Yellow Jackets take another running back for the 2010 class.
