When Micheal Summers of Statesboro (Ga.) was told Georgia Tech may only take one receiver this recruiting cycle, a single thought kept going through his head.
He wanted to be that guy.
On Sunday, one day after receiving an offer from the Yellow Jackets, Summers decided there was no point in delaying a decision.
"I committed this morning," he said. "I talked to Coach [Lamar] Owens first, then I called Coach [Paul] Johnson. They were excited. I talked about it with my family and we felt like it was time for me to go ahead and commit."
Summers chose the Yellow Jackets over schools such as Duke, Florida, Pittsburgh and Vanderbilt.
Why Georgia Tech?
"It's a great, great program," Summers said. "It's a very prestigious program. They've won national championships in the past. They've won conference championships in the past. And I'm very familiar with the coaching staff. I've known Coach Johnson my whole life. When he was down here at Georgia Southern, I stayed around those guys a lot. My dad worked at the school. I was happy when he got the job at Georgia Tech."
The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Summers thinks he's a good fit for the Yellow Jackets offense.
"They don't pass much, but they set up the pass with the run so every time they throw deep the wide receivers are wide open," he said.
Summers also doesn't mind doing the dirty work.
"I like blocking," he said. "In high school, I actually play in the wishbone offense and I play running back. I'm physical and I can block."
