3-star athlete Myles Autry, the teammate of 4-star defensive end Lorenzo Carter, who committed to the Georgia Bulldogs just before Autry’s announcement, committed to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.
Autry’s brother, Anthony, currently plays wide receiver for the Yellow Jackets and earlier in the process, Autry said that could play a part in his decision.
“My brother going there (to Georgia Tech). That’s a big thing,” Autry told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. And Georgia is a good school, they are one of my top schools (as I cut) down schools right now. I mean, everybody wants me to go to Georgia, and some people want me to go to Georgia Tech. Some people say if I go to Georgia, it would be a bigger headline with me and my brother going against each other — rather than us playing against each other. I (will) be thinking sometimes ‘I like Georgia and my brother goes to Georgia Tech.’
On Wednesday, Autry admitted that played a big role and also cited the coaches and proximity to home as reason he picked the Yellow Jackets.
The 5’9, 175-pound Autry is considered the 31st best athlete prospect in the class of 2014, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.
Autry could wind up on defense, but looks best suited as a wide receiver. He told ESPNU he could play A-Back in Georgia Tech’s system and would return kicks and punters.
