Ryan Ayers.....

Come on're the next contestant on "Meet the 2010 Georgia Tech Signing Class". A 5'10, 175 pound safety out of South Paulding High, Ayers was one of the Jackets most sought after signees. A safety in high school, Ayers will make the transition to corner on the Flats & will likely redshirt this season. Ayers maybe the fastest player the Jackets signed this year, having been clocked at 4.43 in the 40.

Hash's take: blazing speed & good quickness. Finds the ball & gets great break on it. Will need to refine technique; relies on pure athletic ability now. Back pedals well but needs to be more fluid in & out of breaks; hips can be stiff at times. Needs to add some bulk to a wiry frame. Shows a willingness to play run support & make tackles. A great fit for our new 3-4 defense.

Player he reminds us of: "Big Play" Willie Clay. Ayers breaks on the ball like Willie used to.
