St. Joseph's-Montvale (N.J.) High receiver Ricky Jeune committed to Georgia Tech on Sunday, and he…
Ricky and his family both had a great time on the visit. "The weather was great and I fell in love with the facilities there. The indoor practice facility is very nice." After seeing everything, Jeune knew that Georgia Tech was where he wanted to be.
Prior to leaving campus, Jeune gave his commitment to Coach Paul Johnson. "He was very excited to have me as a new addition to his football program. He told me when I made the commitment, "Welcome to the Georgia Tech family."
Jeune's size and aggressivness in getting the ball were two things that got the attention of the Tech coaches. "He felt that he could see me getting a lot of playing time as a freshman. That was a great thing to know."
Jeune knew that he would commit to Tech on the second day of his visit. "The school has everything I could want and I feel I could fit in and play right away." Jeune liked that the players made him feel like he was already on the team. "D.J. White was my host and he was great."
While on the trip, Jeune spent some time with fellow New Jersey commit Damon Mitchell. "He talked to me about committing to Georgia Tech so that we could play together." Mitchell was excited when he learned of Jeune's commit.
Jeune will no longer be scheduling a visit to Purdue. "I am done and will sign with Georgia Tech on signing day."
Tech will be getting a big receiver with good speed. "I am hard to cover especially one on one. In a jump ball situation, I feel I am the one that will win that battle." Jeune is also known as good blocker which is essential in the Tech offense.
