One of Georgia’s most-heavily recruited wide receivers was offered by Georgia Tech on Friday, according to his high school coach.
Columbia High School’s Keithon Redding said Georgia Tech was offer No. 19.
“I was waiting to see how long it was going to take them; Georgia Tech called me this morning and said they wanted to extend an offer,” Columbia coach Mario Allen told the AJC.”Georgia Tech likes Keithon because they want a kid who can stretch the field vertically with speed, who is tough and physical, who runs good routes and who is a local kid.”
The 6-foot, 190-pound Redding said he was surprised with the news from his coach. “I didn’t think that Georgia Tech would offer me so early. I’ve been there for Junior Day. Georgia Tech was one of favorite schools growing up.”
When asked about his current leaders, Redding listed Central Florida, Alabama, Penn State, UGA and Florida State.
Wait a minute: UGA hasn’t offered Redding. “No, Georgia hasn’t offered Keithon or [Columbia running back Kenno Loyal]. I’m kind of shocked about that. I don’t understand why Georgia hasn’t offered Keithon but I’m pretty sure they will at some point.”
Redding said he may commit by late summer.
