Georgia Tech’s recruitment of the 2017 class will likely end Wednesday morning at the Jonesboro High gymnasium. There, McDonald’s All-America guard M.J. Walker will announce his college choice , likely from among Tech, Florida State, Virginia Tech, Ohio State and UCLA.
Coach Josh Pastner and his staff have long been working on the 2018 class, though. With more lead time to develop relationships, Pastner has felt better about his chances to sign elite players from the 2018 class, as well as the 2019 group, than the 2017 class.
“That’s a big class, an important class — I’ve been saying that for a long time,” Pastner told the AJC. “We’ve got to have two or three studs in that class. We’ve got to get a couple Josh Okogies in that class.”
