Look: Georgia Tech '21 Football Commits and Targets Receive Scholarship Offers

Ashley Barnett

Saturday kicked off the month of August. Not only does the start of August mean college football fans are closer to the first contest of the upcoming football season, but it also marked an important date on the recruiting calendar. 

One-by-one throughout Saturday, written scholarship offers were made to players in the 2021 recruiting cycle. 

Per NCAA rules, a coaching staff can verbally offer scholarships at any time, but cannot officially offer that scholarship until August 1 heading into the player's senior year. So in theory a prospect could be committed to a school and not *technically* have received a scholarship offer - yet.

Georgia Tech, along with other football programs across the nation, created graphics for '21 pledges to spread the exciting news via social media.
