"It was excellent," said Thomas Altieri about his visit. "I loved every minute of it and every aspect of it. I got to tour the school, meet with the academic advisors, eat the pre-game meal with the team, and meet the coaching staff and get to know them a little better. My host was Brandon Rodd, and I hung out a lot with him. He's an awesome guy."
"I was surprised how much the coaches were involved in every aspect of the student-athlete there," Altieri continued. "You can really tell that the coaches care about the kids and want the best for them. That really gave me a good feeling about ASU."
The offensive explosion against Washington State last Saturday didn't go unnoticed by the offensive lineman. "It definitely impressed me," he remarked. "Coach Meyers and I sat down and watched the game film. He showed me what the offense is all about and I really like it a lot."
Altieri held off on committing on the trip because: "I have nothing to compare this to being that this was my first trip. ASU is great, but I want to see what's out there still. I'm in the process of setting up a visit to Boise State, and I might go visit Colorado too."
Altieri carries a 3.4 GPA and is awaiting his SAT score.
