Signee - Travis Custis Position - RB Offers - Georgia Tech, Clemson, Miami, Mich St, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt Committed - 4/02/12 Looking Back - Travis was the first commit of the 2013 class and held solid the whole time...Travis really blowed up his Senior season rushing for 2.058 yards and 35 TDs while leading his team to the state chmapionship game. Dj Shockley commented that Cusits was the best player he seen in 2012. schools were all over Custis the whole process Ole Miss, Vandy, Miami, Wisconsin, UNC, Nc State, etc, etc. Georgia also tried to flip him late but he did not listen...I have to tip my hat to Custis and his family as this was not a easy battle for Georgia Tech to win. I asked Travis about JuMichael Ramos (his teammate and former GT commit) and why he was looking at Nc State after he committed to GT...he commented that his own high schools coaches were in JuMichaels ear trying to get him to flip. Travis then told me that the coaches were doing the same thing to him...Travis added that he was lucky he had a good family and support system around him to keep him humble and his head on straight and to keep his eyes on the main goal..I asked what the goal was and he said the goal is plan B. He explained that plan A is football but what if football doesn't work out.then he has no where to turn. He said Plan B is education...he said with a degree from Georgia Tech there is no way plan B can fail. Great kid. Looking Ahead - Georgia Tech has been looking for a star B-back ever since Dwyer and Allen left. Many people feel that Custis can be that guy...I agree. I think he is similar to a faster Anthony Allen. Travis is a power runner, but he also has a extra gear of speed. I look for the coaches to try and redshirt him this year with David Sims (Sr), Zach Laskey (Jr), Charles Perkins (Jr)..giving GT good depth. I think he will be competing for the starting job in 2014.
