Yellow Jackets strengthen defensive line

5/24/2012

Defensive tackle Darius Commissiong (Forestville, Md./Bishop McNamara) has committed to play for Georgia Tech, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The 6-foot-2, 295-pound prospect selected Georgia Tech over scholarship offers from Boston College, UMass, Maryland, Duke, East Carolina, North Carolina State, North Carolina, Wake Forest, Syracuse, Virginia, Iowa and Purdue.

“[Defensive coordinator Al Groh] told me everything I need to hear to make me want to go there – it’s a good school academically and I fit in well with the defensive scheme there,” Commissiong said.

“I also talked with Coach [Paul Johnson]. You could tell he was really excited and somewhat surprised when I committed. It was his tone of voice. He had a lot of pep in it. He kind of shouted when I told him the news.”

Commissiong is the fourth 2013 pledge for the Yellow Jackets.
