Georgia Tech Football: Yellow Jackets rounding out class

Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson said there's a chance that he will look to add another player or two to the Yellow Jackets' 2013 recruiting class.

It's been pretty quiet on the recruiting front for Georgia Tech football, as the Yellow Jackets have used up most of their allotted scholarships for the 2013 class. Georgia Tech currently has 15 players committed for 2013, but coach Paul Johnson did say there's a chance that another player or two could be added, via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

"I think it's fairly normal; we're usually to the point in December where we have only a spot or two. That's been the case most of the time (with our staff). Occasionally, something happens, and you add one here or there. You know, somebody decides they're not going to play or not coming back. You might pick up one, and that could happen.

"We may still take another guy or two. We'll just see how the numbers go."

Johnson said the focus right now is to get out and see all the current commitments. His staff also must take the time to review the academic records of the 15 commits to ensure that they will be admitted to Georgia Tech. While Johnson cannot comment on any specific recruits right now, he naturally spoke very highly of the group:

"We really like them, or we wouldn't have recruited them. I think there are some good players in this class."

Johnson was also asked if there was a specific position he would look for if he does plan on adding another player or two to the class. The coach said that rather than focusing on a position, he would just like to find a good player that fits what his staff likes to do.
