Tifton, GA (Future150) -- In a time where many recruits make their college decisions and ultimately take spots away from one another, 2014 guard Tadric Jackson decided that it was time to make his decision after cutting his list down to Ole Miss, Alabama, Georgia, and Georgia Tech.

In the end it was the Yellow Jackets that ultimately won out for the talented combo guard. 

"Georgia Tech is in the best conference in the country," he said at an announcement at his school. He later said in an interview with that he wants to "beat the Duke and North Carolinas."

In addition to getting the opportunity to play in the ACC, Jackson will have a shot to contribute right away. Chris Bolden and Solomon Poole will both be juniors and Travis Jorgenson will be a sophomore by the time Jackson hits campus. 

Jackson's ability to play point guard and off the ball will afford him more playing time in the Georgia Tech backcourt. With four solid options for the forseeable future, look for the Yellow Jackets to turn their attention to the frontcourt.  

"I'm just going to come in and go hard in practice and workouts. I'm going to learn until I'm able to come in and contribute and make things happen."

Robert Carter is set to be the only big on the roster after this season. With four more scholarships available, the Yellow Jackets have work to do. In-state forwards Jakeenan Gant, Jabari Craig, and Trayvon Reed are major targets. Obi Enechionyia, Paul White, Makinde London, and Elbert Robinson also remain targets as well. 

Regardless, Brian Gregory and company have added a quality addition to their backcourt. If they can land a couple more impact players in this class, the Yellow Jackets could return to playing for ACC titles.
