A day after one defensive back pulled back on his commitment to Georgia Tech, another made his decision to commit to the Yellow Jackets.

Nico Dowdell of Loganville High announced Saturday his decision to accept a spot in coach Brent Key’s 2023 signing class, the first prospect to commit to Tech since Key was named full-time head coach this week. His announcement followed another one from L.J. Green, a defensive back from Montgomery (Ala.) Catholic, that he was withdrawing the commitment that he made to Tech in August.
