Wing Green, Khaya Wright commit to Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech picked up two more commitments to its 2020 signing class Tuesday as coach Geoff Collins continues to build up the offensive and defensive lines.

Khaya Wright, a defensive end from Miami, and Wing Green, an offensive tackle from Lee County High in South Georgia, both announced that they had accepted scholarship offers to become Yellow Jackets, bringing the class size to 18. Half of the group are expected to play on the line of scrimmage, four on the offensive line and five on the defensive line.

Wright, listed at 6-foot-3 and 194 pounds, is a three-star prospect as an outside linebacker who listed scholarship offers from Miami, Virginia, Maryland and Nebraska, among others. From South Miami High, Wright announced his offer from Tech in mid-May and made an unofficial visit to Tech in mid-June.

His highlight video shows quickness off the edge, a slim physique, an ability to hit with power and the long arms that Collins covets in defenders.

Green is listed at 6-7 and 270. He and fellow offensive-tackle commit Jordan Williams (6-6) are indicative of the body type that offensive-line coach Brent Key is looking for at that position. Green plays with quick feet and uses his long arms effectively.

Tech’s scholarship offer to Green, made in late May, was his first from a power-conference school. He committed a few days after an unofficial visit to Tech. Lee County is the two-time defending state champion in Class AAAAAA. Green is the 10th in-state player to commit to Tech in this recruiting cycle.
