Nigel Bowden said he no longer plans any future visits to Georgia Tech.
The 4-star linebacker from Central Macon High School has had a roller-coaster ride in recruiting over the last few months: He committed to Vanderbilt in March, switched to Georgia Tech on June 1, then opened things back up the very next day because he felt like he rushed it.
After two de-commits, Bowden said there won’t be a third one.
The 6-foot, 238-pounder made an unofficial visit to Vanderbilt last weekend and committed to the Commodores for a second time.
“It felt more like a family down there,” Bowden said. “I felt very comfortable around the freshmen and other recruits committed now, guys like [Cedar Grove QB] Johnathon McCrary. We’re all ready to come together as a team.”
What was the deciding factors between Vanderbilt and Georgia Tech? “I feel like I fit in better in Vanderbilt’s 4-3 defense than I did with the 3-4 at Georgia Tech. And in practices every day at Vanderbilt, I can go against a pro-style offense which will make me an even better player.”
Bowden had said he planned to visit Georgia Tech again, but now says he won’t. “I’m done with recruiting. I told my [high school] coach, the only place I will probably go back and visit will be Vanderbilt.”
Georgia Tech still has seven commitments for its 2013 recruiting class.
CHECK BACK ANY MINUTE FOR ANOTHER COMMIT …
BEST OF THE REST
