Unlike some Georgia Tech fans, Paul Johnson isn’t panicking over the fact that the Yellow Jackets have one commitment for their 2013 recruiting class.
“I don’t worry about it, I’m not too concerned,” Johnson told the AJC on Thursday. “If we get to October or November and we don’t have any commitments, then I will worry about it.”
“We know where we’re at in recruiting. I think we’re doing just fine. We’ll start to get some kids here in the next month or so. I’ve already had some kids tell me that they’re coming. They just don’t want to announce it yet.
“I’m not too worried about it.”
Actually, Georgia Tech is on nearly the same pace as last year when it had two commitments by May 1 and finished just fine with a class of 17 signees. For the 2013 class, Georgia Tech will likely only sign 14-15 recruits because of low roster attrition. They have to be extremely picky because of limited availability.
One major reason that some Georgia Tech supporters are panicking is because archrival UGA is off to a blistering start with 15 commitments for 2013. However, the Bulldogs also may have twice as many spots. They could sign as many as 30 recruits next February.
Now it’s YOUR TURN. What do you think? Panic or patience? Please post below.
