Osahon Tongo was in Atlanta over the weekend taking in an official visit on the Georgia Tech campus. It was a big weekend for Tongo and the Jackets as they were not only hosting their football rival but hosting four official visitors including Osahon.

Osahon is back in Illinois now and is reflecting on the weekend's events. He was asked to rate his visit.

"I'd give it a 9 out of 10," Tongo said. He was hosted by GT defensive end Darrell Robertson.

Osahon had a busy schedule lined up for his visit.

"We got to visit with the academic advisors and we got to see the game," Tongo said. "We got to tour the facilities and got to see the city. I really liked the whole city overall. You could go to school and then see the Coca-Cola building like right next door, and how the city looks and definitely the Management school."

The Management major seems to be a focus for Osahon.

"I talked with a couple of academic advisors and talked about their Management major and the Management course," Tongo said.

What was the highlight of his visit?

"Just meeting all of the people," Tongo said. "I see the players on the TV all of the time. I just got to meet and hang out with some of the players. I met Lynn Swann before the game. It was just a lot of people there… I mean, it was the whole experience."

Osahon took in the tight hotly contested football game on Saturday night.

"I thought it was a great game," Tongo said. "The crowd was very alive and supporting the team. The defensive schemes were very very impressive."

It possible Osahon will take one more visit before coming up with a decision. He didn't know who specifically but mentioned Duke as a possibility.

"I'm just sorting everything out right now," Tongo said. "I'd like to take one more just to make sure and everything. I won't take all 5 of them, I might just take 3 or… I don't know. I'm just sorting things out right now."

With visits in the books to Boston College and Georgia Tech, Osahon now has a couple of schools and visit to compare.

"I liked the Georgia Tech one just a little bit more but I liked both of my visits," Tongo said. "It was different. It wasn't like the same thing; it was just two different atmospheres."

Osahon is a linebacker all the way and seems more likely at this time to end up on the inside. He wasn't ready to put himself into that exact position just yet.

"Not specifically," Tongo said. "Once you know a position, you should be able to play any position. But probably inside… I play middle linebacker for my school."

Finally, Osahon mentioned some factors that will go into him making his choice.

"I'll be looking between academics and sports; the highest level of that," Tongo said. "And just a place where I can feel comfortable because I'm going to be staying for 4 or 5 years, so I want to feel comfortable wherever I go."
