Blue-chip prospect Michael Devoe commits to Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech coach Josh Pastner has his first commitment from an elite recruit. Mike Devoe, a guard ranked among the top 60 players in the country by ESPN, announced his commitment to Tech on Saturday from his Twitter account.

After Pastner’s first class consisted mostly of developmental players, Devoe could be an impact player from the time he sets foot on campus. From Orlando, Fla., he is rated the No. 15 point guard in the country by ESPN and reportedly chose Tech over Wake Forest and USC. Devoe can sign with Tech during the early signing period Nov. 8-15.

Listed at 6-foot-3 and 163 pounds, Devoe joins Texas forward Kristian Sjolund in the 2018 class. Sjolund, rated the No. 18 player in Texas by ESPN, committed in August. Pastner has one more scholarship to give, although it's conceivable more spots could open up.

Tech offered Devoe in October 2016 and showed strong interest. Devoe said in July that Pastner had seen him play more than any other head coach. He made his official visit to Tech in August.

I want to thank God, my family, friends, and everyone who supported me through everything! I have officially committed to Georgia Tech
