Georgia Tech officials said on Friday that its entire 2011 football recruiting class is on pace to meet NCAA academic requirements.
The Yellow Jackets signed 23 players, with one (offensive lineman Trey Braun of Tallahassee, Fla.) enrolling early last January.
“Everybody we signed is on track to be admitted to Georgia Tech,” Andy McCollum, Tech’s recruiting coordinator, told the AJC, “and we look forward to getting them all into summer school. It’s a good group of young men, and we’re excited about coaching them.”
“We’re hoping to have everybody enrolled by the first [summer session in mid-June] but it may not be possible with all of them because of their high school graduation dates.”
Meanwhile, Georgia has lost at least one member of its “Dream Team” recruiting class. Spalding High School defensive tackle Chris Mayes will be heading to junior college, according to this story by the AJC’s Chip Towers.
Note: We’ll know more about the academic standing of the recruiting classes of both Georgia Tech and UGA, along with Atlanta area prospects that signed with out-of-state schools, in late May or June when final grades and test results are processed.
