Coach Paul Johnson has once again delivered for the upcoming Georgia Tech Football recruiting class.  Maryland Defensive Tackle/Nose Tackle Darius Commissiong from Forestville, Maryland, has committed to join the 2013 recruiting class according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Commissiong is a 6'2", 295 pound three star prospect who instantly brings a large body to plug into the middle of the defensive line at Georgia Tech.  It can only be assumed that once Commissiong gets into Georgia Tech's conditioning and training programs, he will beef up even more and could easily become the Nose Tackle this team desperately needs.

As the Atlanta Journal Constitution noted, Commissiong was convinced to come to Georgia Tech after having the opportunity to meet with defensive coordinator Al Groh, who is known to have recruiting ties to the Maryland/D.C. area.  Commissiong said of his meeting with Groh:

“He told me everything I needed to hear to make me want to go there – it’s a good school academically and I fit in well with the defensive scheme there,”

This is yet another big pickup for the 2013 recruiting class, which, although it will be somewhat smaller than previous classes, is shaping up to be a very strong all around class.
