Pope receiver Zach Owens is Georgia Tech’s third commit


Georgia Tech landed its third commitment for its 2019 recruiting class, wide receiver Zach Owens from Pope High. Owens, a three-star prospect (247 Sports composite), made his announcement Friday evening from his Twitter account.

Owens had reported his offer from Tech on April 4. He had also received offers from Buffalo, Troy and South Alabama.
