McNamara junior defensive lineman Darius Commissiong committed to Georgia Tech late last month, he confirmed, choosing the Yellow Jackets over Clemson, North Carolina, Maryland and Iowa.

The 6-foot-3, 295-pound Commissiong said he felt he was the best fit in Georgia Tech’s schemes, which would allow him to play end and tackle and rotate inside on even fronts.

“I went down there Easter weekend,” Commissiong said. “It was real cool, I was able to spend a lot of time with the coaches and some of the players and I got a good feel for how it’s going to be when I go there.”

After a down season last year in which McNamara finished 3-6, going just 1-5 in WCAC play, Commissiong is one of a strong core of returning players that hopes to turn things around this fall.

The two-way lineman said he believes the improvement has already started to show itself in offseason workouts, and he believes making his college choice eases the pressure on him entering his senior year.

“The team chemistry is good, we have a lot of talent coming back,” Commissiong said. “If we learn how to play as team, which we’re starting to do now, we’re going to be successful.”
