Georgia Tech gets 15th commitment from DT Tre Jackson

Georgia Tech landed its 15th commitment of the 2011 class before it even kicked off against Virginia on Saturday.

Wayne County defensive tackle Tre Jackson confirmed via text message Saturday that he gave his pledge to head coach Paul Johnson before the Yellow Jackets’ Homecoming game against Virginia. Jackson decided to visit The Flats after he received a scholarship offer from Tech last Sunday.

Jackson gives Tech the big body for the interior defensive line it covets for defensive coordinator Al Groh. The 6-foot-5, 295-pound entered his junior season with high expectations. But he suffered a torn ACL in the opening game and sat out the rest of the season without any junior highlight video to show recruiters.

But after surgery last fall and six months of rehab, Jackson picked up where he left off this fall. He was attracting recruiting interest from Auburn, Florida State and Georgia before the Jackets beat them all to the punch.

Dear Abbey,

Yesterday, I found my son sniffing his dad’s underwear. I have always suspected he likes the meat popsicle, but this behavior is disturbing to say the least. It’s just awkward that a 44 year old plumber with a UGA diploma would be so mal-adjusted. He has achieved so much in life, I just can’t understand his longing for male skid marks. Please help.

Go ahead and say it, Russell. DaltonDawg: go find a butt to sniff. Or someone’s balls to lick. Or anything, just go away.

I need some advice from anybody who is willing… I just found a whole stack of photos in my son’s room in a box labeled Roadtrip to Athens. It has pictures of over 100 different PROFESSORIAL-looking men all wrestling around with no clothes on. That’s just not normal.

ILL Jacket, same to you. I was really hoping that UGA was going to offer Tre and get him to commit to us, but alas it never happened. Tech offered and got him to commit…great job by CPJ and staff. Tre is highly underrated and will be a great player for you guys (unfortunately for us once a year).

Kentucky, Florida, Auburn and GT will beat UGA this year making it an 8 loss season for the mutts. 3- 8 and they still bark. funny thing some of them bark louder the worse they get. Oh well, just fun to watch them suffer.

Hey Flo-Ri-Duh – your team just lost to LSU who barely beat Tenn. who just lost to UGA 41 – 14.. Just saying..

UGA fans like DALTONDAWG706 are scared to death that Tech is passing their program and that started two years ago. You’ll see a lot more comments like that coming.

Yeah, and I have to hold my head in shame after we let the Tigers beat us in the swamp. I think our defense is young, but the team overall is still playing to a high level (both the losses to AL and LSU) are to very good teams. Don’t worry doggies, we’ll get it straightened out before the party. Be careful what you say before that game, and man up to show up after it. I know I will.

Yeah, comparative scores are always accurate, Beardawg. Oh wait, not they’re not. But don’t let facts get in the way.

Nice to see UGA folks keep it classy. Fair to hate the kid the last Saturday in November but have nothing but nice words to say about a guy still in high school. Nice job guys.

Isnt dominating the ACC the same thing as dominating the ummmmmmmm……….. acc? i mean you are crowing about dominating a third rate conference, gatorboy your offense looked like crap. now i know my Dawgs have looked like crap so i aint saying i am just saying. You are one sec east loss away from matching us in conference play and if you dont think you could lose to the gamecockes think again,
AMG the season is 12 games long please either redo your math or dont comment.3+8=11 NOT 12.
Dan i have read and reread all 44 comments and none trashtalk the kid in question some wish he had come to UGA but nothing bad about the kid. Do some crap of the north avenue trade school, yeah but yall suck.
