Clinton Lynch, a wide receiver from Norcross High School, flipped from Georgia State to Georgia Tech on Tuesday after getting a call from Yellow Jackets defensive coordinator Ted Roof.
The 5-foot-11, 180-pound Lynch was also a candidate to get a last-minute offer from Vanderbilt.
“Coach Roof called me around 10 or 11...he said ‘You’ve got the offer you were looking for’ and I was so relieved after that. I committed on the spot,” Lynch told ajc.com.
Lynch led the Blue Devils with 47 catches for 912 yards and four touchdowns.
Lynch played on a Norcross side that won back to back state championships, but was over looked by recruiters for other prospects on the team.
“He’s a great player,” Norcross coach Keith Maloof said. “He was under the radar the whole recruiting season. They (Georgia Tech) are getting a diamond in the rough. He’s perfect for their system. He’s a great player and a great kid.
Lynch has become Georgia Tech's 19th commit for 2013. He is rated as a 2-star and the state’s No. 200 overall prospect, according to 247sports rankings.
