Anree Saint-Armour, a three-star defensive lineman from North Gwinnett. eventually ended his recruiting process by signing with the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. However, there was once a time when he thought he would be leaving Georgia to play for the defending national champion Ohio State Buckeyes.
Unfortunately for Saint-Armour, the Buckeyes pulled their offer off the table after signing a number of players at his position.
“Missouri was leading as my senior season started,” Saint-Armour told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Then more offers started coming in. Then it was Ohio State for a little bit until that offer went away because somebody else committed there.”
That is part of the cut-throat business that is college football recruiting, but it all worked out for Saint-Armour in the end.
After re-evaluating his situation, Saint-Armour realized that Georgia Tech was the right fit all along.
“I started thinking about being close to family, and that Georgia Tech offered the same kind of education as Stanford,” Saint-Armour said. “As I thought about it more seriously, in terms as the whole aspect of going off to college and instead of playing football – that’s when Georgia Tech took the lead.”
Often times student-athletes do not think about overall fit when it comes to their landing spot in college, so it is great to see Saint-Armour ultimately landed at a place where he feels comfortable.
