Awaiting Offers - Tech Still Leads

Brett Moncrief

Georgia Tech has pulled in big, physical receivers such as Calvin Johnson and Demaryius Thomas in the past few recruiting hauls, and the Atlanta school continues to lead for another big wideout target.

Georgia Tech has pulled in big, physical receivers such as Calvin Johnson and Demaryius Thomas in the past few recruiting hauls, and the Atlanta school continues to lead for another big wideout target in Brett Moncrief of North Little Rock High School in Little Rock, Ark.

"It's pretty much still the same," said Brett. "My favorite is Georgia Tech. Oklahoma State is second and Arkansas is third."

Though Brett has yet to receive any official offers, he said he is optimistic about the future possibilities for offers when representatives from some of his top choices will watch him in North Little Rock's spring practices next month. He said representatives from Tech, OSU and newcomer Kansas State will be in attendance at spring practice from May 15 to May 19. Brett was asked what coaches can expect to see from him when they visit.

"I can beat a corner deep, I can block and I can make plays," said Brett, who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.49 seconds. "I'm also coachable."

Last season, in a run-oriented offense, Brett hauled in 20 receptions for 421 yards - good for 21.1 yards per catch.

With the Yellow Jackets still leading for his services, the big receiver was asked what intrigues him so much about Tech.

"They have great academics and they have a good team," he said. "They've been to nine straight bowl games and they are balanced offensively. From what I've seen, they pass the ball a lot."

Should the offers begin to roll in, what will be the determining factors in Brett's ultimate decision?

"Football is first, academics are very important though," he said. "Also, the type of [school] environment [will be a factor]."

Brett said he plans to attend camp at Tech on June 10. He missed Tech's recent Junior Day, but said he intends to take an official visit during the fall.

Brett Moncrief is one name for Yellow Jacket fans to keep an eye on over the next several months.
