ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech starting quarterback Justin Thomas is planning to lead an attack that emphasizes the Yellow Jackets' traditional strength.

That means Thomas can expect to line up under center, instead of in the shotgun formations, which coach Paul Johnson says distracted the offense last year. And it means the triple-option is back.

Thomas is the heavy favorite to take over for Vad Lee, who transferred to James Madison. Johnson, best known for sticking to the run in his spread-option offense, says Thomas and backup Tim Byerly each have the skills to bring the triple-option back to a prominent role.

Thomas is small but very fast and could be a big-play threat with his runs out of the option in his first season as a starter.
