With a small class expected for next year's signing day, it was important that Georgia Tech be selective. A commit from running back Travis Custis has gotten the Yellow Jackets off on the right foot.  

As the first player officially on board for the 2013 recruiting class, the Lovejoy High School junior decided it'd be best to commit early. He committed to play at Tech after watching Monday's practice.  Custis' father, Travis Sr. told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he "liked Georgia Tech, and the other schools we were really looking at were starting to fill up at running back…so we thought, ‘Why wait any longer?’” 

Custis, who is rated a three-star by most major recruiting outlets, is expected to have a rise in value going into his senior season.  

Lovejoy is the same high school that former Tech star Tashard Choice attended.  “They are very similar running backs…Travis has broken all of Tashard’s records and he’s a step faster than Tashard,” said Lovejoy coach Al Hughes.  


Notes:

His ESPN.com profile has Custis at 6'0" and 207 lbs with a 4.67 second 40-yard time.  He passed up offers from Vanderbilt, Clemson, Miami, Boston College, Mississippi State and South Florida.
