Who’s coming for Georgia Tech’s first official-visit weekend

Georgia Tech will host its first official-visit weekend of the 2020 recruiting cycle starting Friday, scheduled to bring in nine prospects. It’s a strong indicator of mutual interest, as recruits can take only five official visits, and schools are permitted to bring 56 prospects to campus on the expense-paid visits. 

Four of the nine, cornerback Miles Brooks, quarterback Tucker Gleason from Tampa, Fla., linebacker Tyson Meiguez of Creekside High and offensive tackle Jordan Williams of Gainesville High, are committed.

Notable of the remaining five is guard Tate Johnson of Callaway High, a prospect who has made multiple visits to Tech and is considering Auburn and Florida State, among others. Johnson (6-foot-4, 310 pounds) is a three-star prospect (247Sports Composite) who is ranked No. 426 in the country.

Richie Leonard (6-2, 320) is a guard from Cocoa, Fla., who also holds scholarship offers from Florida, Kentucky, Tennessee and others. Leonard previously committed to Kentucky before withdrawing his commitment in April. He is ranked No. 839 among all prospects in the country.

Javion Cohen (6-4, 275) is a three-star offensive tackle from Phenix City, Ala., who has made an official visit to South Carolina with more planned for Auburn and Florida. He is rated the No. 395 prospect in the country.

Bryce Gowdy (6-2, 180) is a four-star wide receiver from Deerfield Beach, Fla. He reported his offer from Tech on May 9. He also has a reported official visit taken to Syracuse. He is the No. 343 prospect in the country.

Kyle Kennard (6-4, 201) is a defensive end from Riverwood High. A three-star prospect, he also holds offers from Virginia, Oklahoma State, Tennessee and others. He’s rated the No. 1,047 prospect nationally.
