GT gets RB Kinlaw, OL Stickler
Caleb Kinlaw (Goose Creek, S.C./Goose Creek) and Jake Stickler (Bradenton, Fla./Manatee) have committed to Georgia Tech. Both verbals were reported by multiple outlets.
Kinlaw is a 5-foot-11, 184-pound three-star running back and the cousin of former Georgia Tech quarterback Joe Hamilton.
He picked GT over scholarship offers from Arizona, Clemson, Florida International, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. Kansas State, Nebraska, Vanderbilt and Virginia Tech also recruited him.
Kinlaw registered an electronically-timed 4.75 40-yard dash, 4.41 20-yard shuttle, 32.5-inch vertical, 32.5-foot power throw and 79,35 SPARQ this offseason on the Nike Combine circuit.
Stickler, a 6-foot-5, 281-pound offensive tackle, selected the Yellow Jackets over Missouri.
"They're both good schools, but the curriculum at Georgia Tech is more what I'm looking to study. I'm undecided, but I'm leaning more toward Business right now," he told the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Baylor, Connecticut, Marshall and South Florida were his other scholarship offers. Auburn, Florida, Iowa, Nebraska and North Carolina State expressed interest.
The Yellow Jackets' 2014 class now holds 14 commitments.
