On Wednesday night, Scout.com's No. 1 prospect, Derrick Favors, stepped up to the table and announced that he will sign this spring with the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets after considering Georgia and North Carolina State.

Favors, a strong candidate for national high school player of the year, immediately becomes one of the most significant players in Tech history and one of the top recruits to enter the ACC this decade.

Mfon Udofia, you've got a friend inside who knows how to take care of business. Favors and the point guard Udofia, will be joined by Top 100 power forward Kammeon Holsey, shooter Brian Oliver and wing Glen Rice to form one of the nation's best and well-rounded recruiting classes.
