Georgia Tech lands physical receiver

By Jared Shanker

In Paul Johnson's triple-option offense, he needs receivers willing to get their hands dirty in the running game. He found one Sunday.

Ricky Jeune (Montvale, N.J./St. Joseph), a 6-foot-2, 205-pound receiver, committed to Georgia Tech, he said in a text message.

A three-star prospect, Jeune is a physical receiver who can do more than just block on the outside, though. The No. 74 receiver nationally, Jeune made an acrobatic touchdown reception in the state championship game this season.

The commitment of Jeune could bring more good news for Georgia Tech as he visited with Yellow Jackets commit Damon Mitchell, another New Jersey prospect who is considering other programs.
