Two Yellow Jacket prospects decommit

Georgia Tech’s 2016 recruiting class shrunk by two members over the weekend when offensive line pledges Jordan Johnson and Trysten Hill decommitted from the Yellow Jackets.

Johnson, who is a native of Jacksonville, Florida, visited Tech on Saturday for the team’s game against Georgia. On Sunday, he took to social media to announce that he was reopening his recruitment.

“Ive decided to decommit from Georgia Tech I had a bad experience at yesterdays game I would like to say thank you to all of the faculty and staff,” Johnson wrote via his personal Twitter account.

Hill, who is a 6-1, 297-pound O-lineman from Live Oak, Florida, also revealed his plans via Twitter.

“My family and I have given my commitment to Georgia Tech a lot of thought. I would like to thank all of the Georgia Institute of Technology Football Coaches and Academic Staff for everything they have done. I have decided to decommit from Georgia Tech,” Hill said.

With Johnson and Hill back on the market, the Jackets have eight players committed to their 2016 class. One area of focus for the staff moving forward will likely be the offensive line.

Donavaughn Campbell, who attends Ponchatoula High School in Louisiana, has long been a target of Georgia Tech despite his commitment to LSU. The brother of Yellow Jacket freshman quarterback Christian Campbell, Donavaughn is expected to take an official visit to Atlanta in January. He is a consensus 4-star prospect.

After signing 27 players last February, Tech is expected to take a smaller class this cycle. Its eight-man group is currently rated No. 84 nationally on the 247Sports Composite.
