C’Bo Flemister will wait till February to sign


Pike County running back C’Bo Flemister was anticipated to send in his letter of intent on Wednesday. It did not arrive. Flemister will wait until the February signing period to make his decision official, he confirmed in a text message.

Flemister had run for 2,348 yards and 35 touchdowns at Pike County High, according to the website Recruit Georgia, and had been committed to Georgia Southern before switching allegiances to Tech in early December. Flemister also received an offer from Tennessee. While he had committed to Tech, Flemister said in a text he needed more time to make the decision and decided to delay. Flemister, 6-foot-0 and 192 pounds, is a three-star prospect.

It remains to be seen how Tech coaches will approach Flemister’s decision.

“Some of the kids are going to wait, and they’re going to look around, and the kids who do that, then we look around,” coach Paul Johnson said. “It’s like, you’re not committed if you don’t sign. We may continue to recruit ’em unless somebody takes the offer, but you’d be doing your school and yourself a disservice to sit and wait till February if they didn’t want to sign on the 20th.”
