LOUISVILLE, Ga. -- B.J. Bostic technically didn't have anything to sign, but that didn't stop him from having a signing day party today in Jefferson County.

The Georgia Tech football recruit, who graduated high school early and enrolled this semester, made his last official act as a Jefferson County student a memorable one for a crowd of about 100. He posed for pictures and thanked the school community for its support.

"After this, it's like he's gone," coach J.B. Arnold said.

Said Bostic, "I had no problem taking that two-and-a-half-hour drive just to be here. This place has meant a lot to me."

Bostic, who broke 15 school records playing quarterback at the school, is taking part in offseason workouts with the rest of the Yellow Jackets this winter. He said he is looking forward to spring practice, when he could get the opportunity to try several positions. Bostic, proud to report he's up to 164 pounds, said he will begin the spring working with the cornerbacks, but could see time at quarterback and A-back.

"All the coaches have been fighting over B.J.," Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson said last week, speaking at Jefferson County's fall sports banquet. "He will do a lot of different things this spring."
