Tim Atchison, a safety prospect from Copperas Cove, Texas, has added two official visits and narrowed down his favorites to three since we last spoke with him. These days Tim hasn't really been taking many calls regarding his recruiting situation so GoJackets.com spoke to his coach, Tracy Welch, to find out where Tim stands, to his knowledge.

"I know he visited Baylor last (January 13) and really had a good visit," Welch said. "And last I've heard he's narrowed it between Georgia Tech, Baylor and TCU. He's going to visit TCU this weekend (January 20)."

Distance will be one factor Tim will have to consider in his decision considering two of his finalists are relatively close to home while the other, GT, is much further away in Atlanta. Coach Welch mentioned atmosphere as another factor he feels will weigh heavily in Tim's decision-making process.

"The only thing that registered with me is that he's looking for a family," Welch said. "Somewhere he likes the coaches and fits in well and a family-type atmosphere."

Tim appears to be a person who keeps to himself which may make him hard to read when trying to figure out where he'll end up.

"It's hard to dig out of Tim," Welch said. "He's really very quiet. Even as a player for us he's been pretty quiet."

As for the timeframe, Coach Welch had a much better idea on that.

"I think we'll know something next Monday to be honest with you," Welch said.
