Jake Skole becomes the 11th player to commit to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets for the 2010 incoming class. Jake committed shortly before lunch today. It is expected that he will play both baseball and football for the Yellow Jackets.

Jake chose the hometown team over offers from Georgia, Florida State, LSU, Vanderbilt and South Carolina to name a few.

In an earlier interview, Jake told GoJackets.com's Dale McDuffie how he felt about his favorite, Georgia Tech:

"They have strong football and baseball programs. Both Coach Johnson and Coach Hall are great coaches and they always have great teams. They have a strong academic reputation and of course my brother plays there. It would be very nice to play baseball with him again. Plus, Tech is real close to home so family coming to see me play will not be a problem. I know a lot about Georgia Tech through my brother and that is plus."
