Georgia Tech fans got welcome news this afternoon, as WR Zach Owens announced his commitment to the Jackets over offers from Maryland, Buffalo, UTSA, and South Alabama.
Owens is the 3rd commit for the 2019 class, and is the first WR committed. With only 1 or 2 scholarships likely available for the 2019 WR group, another may commit soon before the spots dry up. Georgia Tech’s involvement with Owens moved quickly from an offer on April 4 to a commitment 9 days later.
Owens seems to still be growing into his body, and could continue to get taller before he eventually arrives at Tech. He’s tall, lanky, and has his height listed at 6-1 on 24/7, but 6-2 on Rivals. If he continues to grow, he will have considerable space on his frame to add weight.
