 Ayinde Eley, Georgia Tech, Player News


  The newest addition to Georgia Tech's collection of analysts has a particularly close connection with a member of the Yellow Jackets team. Former Alabama State coach Donald Hill-Eley is the father of Tech linebacker Ayinde Eley. Tech made the hire in July, bringing on Hill-Eley as an analyst for the offense. Hill-Eley was let go at Alabama State in November in the middle of his fourth season as head coach of the Hornets. He replaces Mike Gregory, who left Tech to become the offensive coordinator at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. Hill-Eley brings a considerable amount of experience to the job. He has been coaching since 1991 and was a head coach at Morgan State 2002-13 and then at Alabama State 2017-21. His expertise is on offense. Eley is going into his final season with the Jackets after transferring from Maryland before the 2021 season. - Atlanta Journal Constitution

  Besides the first day of the early signing period and the announcement that running back Jamious Griffin will return to Georgia Tech out of the transfer portal, the Yellow Jackets roster had three additional updates Wednesday. Linebacker Ayinde Eley, who came to Tech as a grad transfer from Maryland and was sixth in the ACC in tackles per game, announced that he will stay for his final year of eligibility. At the end of the season, Eley had said that he had not yet decided on whether he would stay or enter the NFL draft. Eley developed into a team leader since his arrival last January and was named the ACC linebacker of the week for his career-high 13 tackles in the Jackets' win over Duke. Also, Tech received Syracuse tight end Luke Benson out of the transfer portal, which he likewise announced. Benson, from Chalfont, Pa., outside of Philadelphia, played a total of 34 games in three seasons for the Orange. - Atlanta Journal Constitution

  The phone calls between Ayinde Eley and his father Donald Hill-Eley are different now. Hill-Eley hears excitement in his son's voice when they talk, particularly when the talk turns to football, as it often might. Eley is a linebacker at Georgia Tech, a grad transfer from Maryland, and his father is head coach at Alabama State. "It's just a totally different conversation when I talk to him now," Hill-Eley told the AJC Monday. "He's really enjoying the game of football, and that helps you reach your potential." Hill-Eley is optimistic for his son's playing time at Tech, aspirations shared by Tech defensive coordinator Andrew Thacker, among others. But more than that, Hill-Eley is glad for the happiness that he hears coming through his phone. As early as Maryland's first game last season, which was his son's fourth year at the school, Hill-Eley said that he knew that his son would be transferring.

"I've got some guys here that don't play, or their (playing) time has been cut," Hill-Eley said of players on his own team. "But the key is having some kind of communication with the guys that they don't feel ostracized. That's the feeling that we got when we were up the road (at Maryland). I just wanted him to get around some guys that, it's not so much whether he plays or not - I think he's good enough to play - but that it doesn't feel personal." At Maryland, Eley started nine of the Terrapins' 12 games in 2019, and he finished second in tackles with 79. In 2020, however, he played in three of the Terrapins' five games with one start. He announced his decision to go into the portal on Dec. 25 and then went public with his transfer to Tech on the 28th. - Atlanta Journal Constitution

  Georgia Tech has received the commitment of Maryland linebacker Ayinde Eley, who will arrive as a grad transfer. With 11 starts and 111 career tackles to his credit, Eley looks like he can compete for a starting job in 2021. He is expected to arrive in January, meaning he can take part in spring practice. Eley, from Silver Spring, Md., announced his decision to enter the transfer portal last Friday and made public his commitment to Tech on Monday. At 6-foot-3 and 240 pounds, he will be a size upgrade for defensive coordinator Andrew Thacker. His two starting linebackers for this season, David Curry and Quez Jackson, were listed at 6-2, 230 and 6-1, 225, respectively. Eley will have two years of eligibility remaining. - Atlanta Journal Constitution
