Georgia Tech football coach Paul Johnson loves those players from his home state.
The Yellow Jackets have closed the deal on their third player from Georgia, as Monroe-Albany High’s Bryan Chamberlain committed to Georgia Tech.
“I think he made a wise decision, a great decision, by selecting Georgia Tech,” Monroe coach Charles Truitt said. “It’s a place that can use his skills and talent. It’s a school where he can go and play with a great football team, as well as get a great education.”
The 6-foot-4, 275-pound offensive lineman follows in the footsteps of East Hall linebacker Chaz Cheeks and Mt. Zion tailback Quartterrio Morgan as early pledges for Georgia Tech’s 2011 recruiting class.
“They are getting a player with a great upside,” Truitt said. “Bryan has great feet, is very explosive off the ball, and doesn’t ever give up. In the last three years total, he might’ve given up three sacks, and we throw the ball 50-percent of the time. He does a very good job with pass-blocking, as well as being an aggressive run-blocker. He’s a big player with a big upside. Bryan has a lot more football to grow into, a lot more football to play and get better.”
Georgia Tech was Chamberlain’s only offer, but he had emerging interest from Clemson, Louisville and UGA. Johnson charged hard after Chamberlain last summer, and there has been a lot of mutual love between the two ever since.
“(Johnson) loves his size and quickness,” Truitt said. “The type of football speed and agility he has matches up pretty well with what Georgia Tech does offensively. Bryan won’t have any problem moving and trapping — the things that Georgia Tech requires their offensive lineman to do.”
It was no surprise that Chamberlain committed to Georgia Tech. “I knew he was going to pick them, I just didn’t know this soon.”
