Remember that Georgia Tech football scholarship that DB John Marvin earned at camp a couple of weeks ago?
He cashed it in Thursday.
The 6-foot-1, 190-pounder from Fort Walton Beach, Fla., committed to Georgia Tech over South Florida and Louisville. He also claimed offers from Kentucky, Maryland and Central Florida, among others.
“I just felt like the time was right,” Marvin told the AJC. “I wanted to end everything [with recruiting]. I’ve been wanting to commit since I left camp. I fell in love with the place when I was there.”
Why Tech? “I have a good relationship with the coaches, Atlanta is a good location, Georgia Tech has good academics … plus they play in the ACC.”
Most of Marvin’s film is at safety. At camp, the Georgia Tech coaches want to see what he could do at cornerback. Marvin was impressive enough to earn an offer, which was eventually accepted. Marvin has a 3.2 GPA and will study Business.
Georgia Tech now has 10 commitments for 2013, with DE Justin Akins also pledging to the Yellow Jackets on Thursday.
