Georgia Tech linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu has decided to return for his senior season, according to the Jackets' official Twitter account:
@GTAthletics: #GaTech LB Jeremiah Attaochu has decided to return for his senior season. He led the Jackets in sacks (10) and TFL (12) in 2012. #GoJackets
@GTAthletics: Attaochu on deciding to stay at #GaTech: "At the end of the day, you have to have trust in the program and trust in the guys around you."
Georgia Tech's sports information director, @Dean Buchan, pointed out via Twitter that: With Jeremiah Attaochu returning, #GaTech has 8 starters back on defense, plus Fred Holton & strong group of redshirt freshmen.
This is obviously great news for the Jackets and the defense, which made an impressive turnaround since the mid-season firing of former coordinator Al Groh. Attaochu probably wouldn't have stuck around if he didn't sense things were going in the right direction.
