Stephon Tuitt To Notre Dame, Jamal Golden, Bryan Chamberlain To Georgia Tech On Signing Day

The Stephon Tuitt story has come to a close for Georgia Tech, with the five-star DE’s letter of intent officially arriving via fax to Notre Dame, coach Brian Kelly announced on Twitter. Tuitt de-committed from Notre Dame to briefly join the Yellow Jackets 2011 class only to re-flip shortly after. Many had held out hopes he’d continue to flip, accidentally signing his name for Tech mid-flip, but that’s not the case. Moving on.

One guy Tech did land is Jamal Golden, who was named Alabama Player of the Year by several different services. A three-star ATH who had a few FBS offers, it’s not clear why he wasn’t a bigger deal, considering the awards he loaded up on in Alabama. He’s a three-sport athlete, who says the recruiting efforts of Tech baseball coach Danny Hall played a role in getting him to Atlanta. Rivals rates him as Bama’s No. 40 prospect.

There aren’t a lot of highlights out there (seriously, how far out is Wetumpka, anyway?), but he’s included in this video:

Three-star Albany OT Bryan Chamberlain is also on board, the state’s No. 87 player. He had no other FBS offers, but was recruited by Clemson, Georgia, and Louisville.
