Yesterday Georgia Tech picked up one of it's biggest commitments so far in the Paul Johnson era by landing top 15 QB Jordan Luallen. Luallen is a dual-threat quarterback out of Center Grove High School in Greenwood, Indiana and turned down offers from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisville, Maryland, Purdue, Stanford, and Cincinnati to pick the Yellow Jackets. He is a tall QB at 6-foot-3 who can scramble and scored 25 total touchdowns last season in helping his team to a 9-2 record.

Luallen should fit in perfectly for Johnson's triple option/spread offense he is looking to establish this fall in his first season on the Flats. Many pundits didn't think Johnson could land a top QB with his offense that almost ran to perfection at Navy the past few seasons. Johnson proved them wrong. Landing a recruit the stature of Luallen can only help and signals to other recruits that Johnson could have a top 20 class due signing day.

Now if only they can recruit 4 and 5 star recruits at every other position then they may have a chance to beat in-state rival Georgia. Key word: MAY.
