The AJC is reporting that Georgia Tech has offered a scholarship to junior quarterback Juwaan Williams of Tucker, who led his team to the class-AAAA Georgia State Championship this past season.  

Besides his offer on Wednesday from the Yellow Jackets, Williams already has several offers from Division I such as Wake Forest, Kentucky, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, East Carolina and Central Florida.

Williams is currently rated a 3-star by Yahoo! Sports and put up a solid individual performance at the 2011 Under Armour Combines.  

“It was a great offer,” Williams said. “The system they run at Georgia Tech fits me to a ‘T.’ It’s just a little more reading that I have to do at the line of scrimmage. If I went to Georgia Tech to play quarterback, I’d have a chance to be the king of Atlanta. Georgia Tech is in the heart of Atlanta, and they have great fans that support the team.”

The Jackets are apparently recruiting Juwaan as a quarterback, while most of the other schools he's visited are interested in applying his skills as a wide receiver. 

Along with his athletic skill, Williams brings to the table strong academics and a 3.5 GPA, which also makes him a strong candidate for Georgia Tech.  

“Coach Johnson sat down with me and my parents in his office, and explained to us how highly he thought of me as a student and an athlete," Williams explained. "He said they really liked me and they wanted me. We had a great conversation about Georgia Tech, and he shared a little bit about himself and his family.”

Juwaan wants to make his ultimate choice prior to the start of next school year and says his current top-three choices are Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt and Georgia.  He currently does not have an offer from the Bulldogs, however.  

Williams has a chance to add to an already-strong Georgia Tech quarterback depth chart.
