Beau Hankins both committed and signed with Georgia Tech on Wednesday.
The 6-foot-2, 225-pound linebacker from Birmingham, Ala., picked the Yellow Jackets over Arkansas, Wake Forest, and Central Florida among his 26 offers, which also included Stanford, Penn State and Iowa State.
“I think with his visit to Georgia Tech, they kind of sold him and he felt like that was the place to be,” said his coach Terrence Amos.
Hankins is a 4.0 student who is ranked No. 1 academically in his class and a candidate to be school valedictorian. He will play ILB at Georgia Tech.
