The Yellow Jackets have reeled in commitments left and right and have re-emerged on the national stage as a recruiting force to be reckoned with. And the news only gets better as Tech has landed what could be their biggest commitment to date. Jacksonville, Fla., Sandalwood defensive end Jacoby Monroe, a four-star prospect and member of the Rivals100, said on Wednesday he wants to be a Jacket.

"Jacoby called me today and shocked me," said Adam Geis, Monroe's head coach at Sandalwood High School. "He said, 'I'm just ready to commit to Georgia Tech. I really liked it when I went up there and the only thing now is I would get confused if I went anywhere else.' He felt comfortable.
