Geoff Collins landed one of the biggest names out on the market on Wednesday when running back Jamious Griffin committed to the Jackets. Griffin was named 1st team All American by USA today and was named the Georgia Gatorade Player of the Year. Griffin chose the Jackets over Auburn, Louisville, and NC State.
Griffin ran for 2,815 yards and 38 TDs on 288 carries his senior season up in Rome, Georgia.
Jamious is the brother of Georgia Tech defensive lineman, JaQuon Griffin, and also has a brother who plays LB at Virginia Tech.
This is a huge pickup for Georgia Tech and should be a big time momentum boost as the clock on the 2020 class begins.
