The Georgia Tech football program landed a major score on the recruiting trail Wednesday.
IMG Academy four-star defensive tackle TK Chimedza, who was believed to be deciding between the Georgia Bulldogs and Florida State Seminoles, surprised many when he announced his commitment to the Yellow Jackets.
Chimedza announced his decision on social media.
Chimedza immediately becomes the prized recruit of Georgia Tech’s 2018 recruiting class.
The 6-foot-1, 296-pounder, who is a Georgia native, is rated as the No. 28 defensive tackle in the nation, according to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings. He is also the No. 51-ranked overall player in the state of Florida.
Chimedza also had offers from programs like Oregon, Tennessee, Missouri and Mississippi State.
