Tallahassee (Fla.) Godby defensive back T.J. Davis made his way to Atlanta, Ga. this weekend to check out the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Davis, who was accompanied by a few of his teammates, came away impressed by the ACC program.
"Georgia Tech was really good," Davis said. "I found out it is a great place to go for an education. One out of every six Georgia Tech graduates becomes millionaires. It is a good place to play football. I watched the scrimmage and saw a lot of hard hitting and a lot of communicating. They all get to the ball defensively and they work hard offensively. It is just an all-around good place to be with a great coaching staff."
During the visit, Davis had an opportunity to speak at length with head coach Paul Johnson.
"I spoke one-on-one with Coach Johnson," Davis said. "He was saying that the reason most people come to Georgia Tech is that they know they will have an opportunity to play for a National Championship some day and that they can also get a great education. If you go there, you are pretty much set for life. It is also in the middle of a great city."
With the visit wrapped up, Davis admits that the Jackets made a good move with him while he was on campus.
"I wasn't really looking at them at first, well I was because my quarterback Dennis Andrews was looking at them and we are pretty much looking at the same schools, so I was considering them because of that but this weekend changed things," Davis said. "This visit just boosted it up."
Would a commitment from Andrews to the Jackets result in a subsequent commitment from Davis?
"It may help them, but I wouldn't say a lot," Davis said. "I am going to have to do what is best for me."
Davis has previously visited Auburn, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Miami, and South Florida, in addition to Georgia Tech. Despite having seen a number of campuses and holding over two dozen offers, Davis isn't quite ready to narrow things down at this time.
"Not yet," Davis said. "I am just going to keep visiting schools and talking with the coaches to see where their minds are at and what they are saying. Soon as I find that school for me I am just going to go ahead and let it be known."
Up next for Davis is a trip to LSU, but a specific date has yet to be scheduled. He will participate in the Tallahassee Nike Camp on April 17th.
