Holmdel (N.J.) St. John Vianney linebacker and long snapper Sean Tobin took his first official visit this past weekend. The 6-foot-3, 220-pounder made his way to Georgia Tech.
"It went well, but I still don't know if I have the scholarship," he said. "They said they'll let me know before the Colorado State visit this weekend. They seemed like they were pretty sure they'd have room."
Anyway, Tobin discussed the Georgia Tech visit further.
"The facilities are awesome and I loved Atlanta," he said. "The academics are unbelievable and they have the environment I'm looking for, but I haven't seen anywhere else.
"I was hosted by their punter, Chandler Anderson. It was good; the whole weekend was really fun. They wined and dined us pretty good."
Tobin got time with the coaching staff.
"They're all extremely nice people," he said. "They are really there for you and supporting you even if you're not going to Georgia Tech," he said. "It was really a nice place and I felt like I could play there right now. They definitely are high on my list."
Of note, Georgia Tech mentioned the chance of playing linebacker down the line.
"They don't think it'll happen my freshman or sophomore season as I'll focus on long snapper, but if I got that down after two years when they expect me to be around 240 they'll be willing to see how I do at linebacker."
Next up is a trip to his lone offer to date, Colorado State.
"Hopefully it goes like this one did," he said. "I've heard it's a beautiful place, voted one of the top 10 places in the nation. I'm just really looking forward to see what it's like."
Rounding out the trips will be Virginia Tech on the 28th.
"Virginia Tech is still on the 28th," he said. "I just talked to Coach Cavanaugh and he's going to come see me this week or next and they'll make a decision as soon as possible on an offer."
Of note, North Carolina is the latest school to start showing interest and contact Tobin.
