After recently returning from his official visit, Albert Rocker was sure he made the right decision for his college future.

After recently returning from his official visit Albert Rocker was sure he made the right decision for his college future. "It was great, I loved it, I loved it more than I did before." Albert was thrilled to be hosted by Phillip Wheeler and commented that he got a "good vibe" from him. He also confirmed he's "100% committed to Georgia Tech and proud to be part of a great recruiting class".

The first night in Atlanta, Albert toured the football facilities and ate dinner in the Sky Box overlooking Grant field. Saturday he spent his morning at breakfast with the coaches, toured the recreational facilities and met with academic advisors in the afternoon, then finished the evening with a visit to Coach Gailey's house for dessert. Albert mentioned that the dessert was a model cake of Coach Gailey's home.

Albert and his Senators teammates finished the season with a 10-2 record, including a thrilling 38-31 double overtime victory against Tuscaloosa County. Albert said the game was "exciting" despite the fact that it was extremely cold and wet that night. Unfortunately his hopes for ending his high school career as state champions ended when the Sparkman High Senators were eliminated in the 2nd round of the state playoffs.

With football season over, Albert has no plans on playing any more sports this year. Recently he's settled into his off-season weight-training program to focus his efforts on the goal of getting "bigger and stronger" before he arrives on Georgia Tech's campus next summer.

When asked what his plans were for the holiday season, Albert said he would be "visiting relatives in Florida for the New Year." While there, Albert is intent on going to the Gator Bowl to watch his future teammates play West Virginia.

On signing day, Albert plans on meeting the "Georgia Boys" at ESPN Zone in Atlanta to sign their letters of intent. Albert elaborated that not only are the recruits in this class forming close friendships, but the parents are becoming close also. In fact, his own mother and Kyle Jackson's mother are collaborating to get the "Georgia Boys", Albert, and possibly some other recruits together on signing day. Albert looks forward to seeing this same chemistry lead to victories on the field for the new recruiting class and their future teammates.
