Signee - Justin Akins

Position - DE

Offers - Georgia Tech, Clemson, Duke, Louisville, Ole Miss, Mississippi St, Nebraska, Nc St,USF and UCF.

Committed - 6/28/12

Looking back - Justin played at Jackson High school in Georgia...Also the home of 2013 Vandy signee Jay Woods. Justin was overshadowed by Jay in the recruiting process but when you put on the tape you can see what type of player Tech landed in Akins. The thing that stands out about him is his speed..to be a guy of his size he is very quick off the ball. He is around 6'5 and 240 pounds currently.

Looking Ahead - I think Justin fell into a great situation with Georgia Tech hiring Ted Roof...Justin is not done growing yet but he will likely be around the size that Ted likes his DE's to be. I think Justin will be a good player for Tech and would for him to start making a impact on the field around his redshirt Sophomore year
