15 notable recruits expected at Tech’s spring game

There’s a reason that Georgia Tech coach Geoff Collins has been pushing attendance for Friday night’s spring game so consistently. There’s actually probably several.

But one of the primary drivers is the influx of recruits expected to flock to Bobby Dodd Stadium. Collins has boasted more than once that “there’s no better venue in the entire country than Bobby Dodd Stadium under the lights,” and he would love little more than to show off said venue with good weather and an energized crowd.

More than 200 recruits could be attending, many from outside the state and some even in the 2023 class (currently in eighth grade).

Most of Tech’s 10 committed players for the 2020 class are expected, as well as most of the signees for the 2019 class.

Here are 15 of the more notable prospects expected to be in attendance.
