Three-star OL Whitley picks Georgia Tech

9/5/2013

The Yellow Jackets offered Jake Whitley (North Augusta, S.C./North Augusta) Wednesday and the three-star guard quickly accepted, according to the Augusta Chronicle.

"It's crazy," he said. "I can't wrap my mind around it yet. I'm still soaking it in. I just love the coaches and the atmosphere, and you can't beat the education."

Appalachian State, Charlotte, Coastal Carolina, Furman, Georgia Southern, Marshall, Maryland, Old Dominion and Youngstown State also extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot-3, 303-pound senior.

Whitley, a two-time all-area selection, posted a 5.67 40-yard dash, 4.88 20-yard shuttle, 22.9-in vertical and 78.45 SPARQ on the Nike Combine circuit.

Georgia Tech has 16 pledges for 2014.
