(Looks like Mario Edwards needs some help in the secondary. It's on the way.)

Remember that one time when I said not to expect surprises on Signing Day? Yea, me neither.

Not for the first time, I was wrong in saying that this week would go without surprises, positive or negative, for the Jackets, and here's why: Georgia Tech has reportedly picked up a commitment from four-star corner Louis Young. Young joins a class that's already deep in the secondary, with B.J. Bostic, Synjyn Days, and Ryan Ayers already committed.

Something else stands out about Young, who picked Tech over Virginia and Maryland, among others. His recruiter was Al Groh. Yes, the same defensive coordinator who just took up station in Atlanta, and grabbed linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu out of D.C. for the Jackets not long after taking up station.

So count that as two recruiting wins for the new man and another big recruit for the Jackets.
