    Has commitable offers from UNC, Nc St and GT.

    UNC likes him as a ATH.

    GT and Nc St as a QB.

    He's left handed.

    Also, the last weight I can find on him is 198. Which is really good for a kid his age.

    Definitely a runner. He could flourish in this system. He's listed as 4.57 speed but looks faster.

    Film sped up or not, he's still outrunning the defense.

    Good pickup IMO. Even if he doesn't work out at QB I think he could be a decent A back.

    Pretty big that we got him this early with him having offers from two North Carolina schools. Hopefully we can keep him on board, but he looks like a good get.

    “I want to win a championship,” Ratliffe told 247sports.com’s Ryan Bartow. “I want to make money. I want to be a Yellow Jacket.”

    2 out of 3 isn't bad is it? :D

    film has to be sped up, but I agree with the poster, he is still out running the D. Also looks good on the highlight tape, but who doesn't. I like this pick up but I really would like or GT to bring in some great DL guys this year.

    We need them.

    Great get for us at QB..I like the kid. Landing a recruit this early shows how high our staff is on him....especially since we have only offered a few QBs and could just take 1 in this class.

    Nice job by Bryan Cook to pull him from the NC schools.

    First off, welcome to GT. Committing takes care of being a Yellow Jacket (just please no drama). Graduate and that takes care of making money for the 50 years you'll be working. Win a championship ..... we did it in 1990 coming from the middle of the pack but it sure isn't guaranteed like things you can control (committing and graduating).

    This quote sounded a lot like a quote from a three star 6-2 210 QB who ran a 4.54 40 out of Durham a few years back. Jaylend is either 6-1 or 6-2 and weighs/weighed somewhere between 180 and 210 depending on the source. He had a 4.57 40 but always could get faster in spring track..... he's damn fast to start. He looks really good on the tape.

    Nice pickup. Runs the option well. Hopefully we can keep him until next February. He does remind me of vad. #23 on his team looked pretty good as well. I think he would make a nice a back.
