Mike how did the trip to Georgia Tech go?

"It went really well. Tony (teammate Antonio Foster) and I had a great time there. We got a chance to see a lot of Georgia Tech as coach took us up to Atlanta to take in the Tech practice."

What did you do while you there?

"We got there and got a chance to sit down and talk with Coach Johnson and watched the highlights from last year. Coach took us around the campus and we saw the athletic dorms and the academic facilities. I got a chance to sit in on the linebackers meeting and see how Coach BJ coaches his linebackers. It was a very good trip. I had a great time while we were there."

What is left on your spring agenda?

"Tony and I are going to Georgia this up coming weekend and then the next week we will go down to Florida and take a visit there. That Sunday I will go to the Nike Camp to watch it but not take part in it. After those two visits, we plan on sitting down and discussing our futures and see if we will be playing together or not. I know we discussed it a lot on the drive back from Georgia Tech."

Anything new for any visits this spring?

"Tony and I talked about going back to Georgia Tech on the 17th to take in another Georgia Tech practice and possibly staying overnight with some friends."


Dale's Take:
Mike and I have set up a time to discuss his trip to Georgia next week and then the following week concerning the Florida trip. Mike was really impressed with the trip to Georgia Tech and likes his relationship with Coach Brian Jean-Mary as they have hit it off real good. Mike likes the recent commits that Tech has received from Brandon Watts and Chaun Gresham. Stay tuned for more updates on Mike.
