2012 quarterback Matt Dobson has been offered by Georgia Tech, but with the recent commitment of fellow Tallahassee (FL) quarterback Dennis Andrews, many thought Dobson may be looking elsewhere for his college career.

But Dobson insists that he isn’t feeling any different about the Yellow Jackets, as long as they aren’t feeling different about him.

“You’re going to have to compete wherever you go, so it’s no biggie,” Dobson said. “The coaches said they aren’t sure whether they will take two quarterbacks, so I’m going to wait to see what they say.”

Dobson has been busy attending camps now that the summer is in full-swing, and having visited Tennessee, Louisville, North Carolina State and Georgia Tech so far (and Maryland and Navy visits are on the schedule this weekend), Dobson appears to be expanding his list of possible programs in case the Yellow Jackets don’t intend to take two quarterbacks from the class of 2012.

Last weekend, he was in Atlanta for Tech’s camp, and he said he really enjoyed himself while on the practice field.

“I got to do some drills and one-on-ones … there were some very good athletes and good wide receivers out there,” Dobson said. “The talent level was high.”

Along with the Yellow Jackets, Dobson has also been offered by Navy, Western Kentucky, Florida International University, and Samford. After catching up with Dobson, he still seems very enthralled by Georgia Tech and is hoping the coaching staff gives him good news.

“I’m going to see how it all works out, but Georgia Tech is definitely still in the game,” Dobson said.

As for fellow Tallahassee quarterback Dennis Andrews, who committed to Tech recently, Dobson said the two know a little about each other. While they have never faced off on the field, Dobson had nothing but good things to say about Andrews. “He’s a great football player, and I’m sure he’ll do well at Tech,” Dobson said.

Now, we will wait to see If the Tech coaching staff is willing to turn the Tallahassee commit into a Tallahassee duo.
