Paul Johnson’s flexbone formation is a common one used by the Georgia Tech offense. This formation is slightly unattractive for wide receivers because it is an option-based, run-heavy offense. This is one reason why Georgia Tech just picked up its second wide receiver of the 2015 class.
Harland Howell of Marietta, Ga., committed to the Yellow Jackets on Monday. Howell chose Georgia Tech over rivaling offers from Appalachian State, Boston College and others, according to 247Sports.com.
Although this is a run-heavy offense, it leaves defenses expecting the run vulnerable to a play-action pass. This is where Howell believes his impact can be made.
He shared the news of his commitment via Twitter:
Howell is the 11th commitment to the Yellow Jackets in the Class of 2015.
