Commit #5

Demopolis (Ala.) defensive end Tyler Merriweather has committed to play football at Georgia Tech. Merriweather visited Atlanta on Friday for the Jackets recruit picnic. On Saturday morning he decided to become a Yellow Jacket.

"I decided this morning that I wanted to commit and it was something I've been thinking about for a while'" he said. "I called coach Mike Pelton and committed to him on the phone. Coach was very excited and it was something we had talked about a lot in his office Friday."

Merriweather says Tech was the perfect fit for him once he saw campus.

"I hadn't been around Tech before and it was phenominal. It is a school I couldn't pass up, he said. "I liked Auburn and Miss State, but I like Georgia Tech the most and it is the best engineering school around. There isn't a better place for me."

Merriweather says he is done with his recruitment and he will not take other visits.
