Payton announced the offer, his sixth, on his Twitter page Monday, writing “Blessed to receive an offer from Georgia Tech.”

In addition to his Tech offer, Payton has offers from North Carolina, Central Michigan, South Alabama, Charlotte and Southern Mississippi, according to his Twitter page.

A 6-foot-3, 180-pound sophomore at Duncan U. Fletcher High School, Payton posted Sunday on Twitter about a visit to Florida. No formal offer from the Gators has been announced.
