Georgia Tech lands 14th commit in cornerback Juanyeh Thomas

Three-star cornerback Juanyeh Thomas committed to Georgia Tech on Tuesday, choosing the Yellow Jackets over his other top choices Auburn and Florida.

The 6-foot-2, 204 pound rising senior from Niceville, Fla. became the Yellow Jackets 14th commit when he announced his commitment on Tuesday night with a statement on Twitter.

"I'm so glad that I will be furthering my education and my football career at Georgia Tech," Thomas wrote in part. "I'm so happy to be a Yellow Jacket."

Thomas unofficially visited Georgia Tech on July 28, according to 247 Sports.

In an interview in July, Thomas said he saw something special at Georgia Tech. The Niceville High School student-athlete said he would land at the school where he could make the biggest impact as a freshman. 

“Just the school that wants me the most and whoever thinks I can come in and impact their program in a big way,” Thomas said, according to SEC Country's Benjamin Wolk. “I’m going to come to a school and work hard to try to play as a freshman. That’s the goal right now.”
