A few months back, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets head coach Paul Johnson labeled his program’s recruiting efforts, “The Migration.” Well, on Sunday, Johnson, welcomed the seventh commitment of the 2014 class to that movement.
Lower Dauphin, Pa. tight end Trey Klock announced his intentions on Sunday to head down to Atlanta for the 2014 season. After mulling over a few other options which included another ACC school, the Boston College Eagles. And, at one point, Klock was leaning towards heading north for his college football career. But after one trip south, his mind was all but made up.
After hitting it off with his now future teammates, as well as the entire coaching staff–including Johnson, Klock knew that that’s where he needed to be. What he particularly liked about his interactions with the coaching staff was the various ways that they expressed their interest in using him.
With Johnson’s triple-option attack not utilizing the tight end in the traditional way, Klock will have the opportunity to be featured in a number of different positions, including h-back and slot back.
At 6-4 and 260-pounds, Klock is certainly the type of big, versatile player that the coaching staff can develop into a force in their offense.
However, that size could also see a change in position down the road.
Klock is also a standout defensive linemen. There is a chance that the GT strength and conditioning staff could get him on campus and see the need to develop him into a force on their defensive line as well. Georgia Tech has a few skill position players they’re building for the future, and turning Klock into a collegiate-level defensive linemen is a possibility that shouldn’t be overlooked.
