Today’s player spotlight is on that of Tech defensive end and Dalton, Georgia native Luke Johns. The 6-foot-5 , 255-pound Johns was a three-star prospect out of Southeast Whitfield County High School in the 2018 recruiting class.
Johns ended his recruitment and committed to the Jackets, two years ago this month on July 28, 2017. He committed to the Jackets over 18 other scholarship offers, a mixture of mostly Group of 5 and FCS programs. He had a pair of other Power 5 offers in Rutgers and Washington State. During his recruitment, Johns was considered a top-100 weakside defensive end in the country.
