2017 DB pledges to Georgia Tech


Class of 2017 cornerback O.J. Tucker put an end to his recruitment on Aug. 6 when he committed to Georgia Tech. The Ocala, Fla., native announced the news via his personal Twitter account:

Per the 247Sports composite index, the 6-1, 190-pound prospect is ranked the No. 95 player at his position in the 2017 class. He is rated the No. 130 senior in the state of Florida.

Tucker is the third defensive back to pledge to the Yellow Jackets this cycle, joining corners Jaytlin Askew of Powder Springs, Ga., and Dameon Williams of Norcross, Ga. He also claimed Power 5 offers from Iowa State, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Nebraska, North Carolina, Purdue and Wake Forest.

Relative to the rest of the ACC, it’s been a quiet recruiting cycle for Georgia Tech. The Jackets have the fewest commitments (10) of all league schools, and their class is ranked last in the conference by most major recruiting services.
