Vad Lee Visits Atlanta and Helps Recruit

Hillside Durham (N.C.) quarterback and Georgia Tech commit Vad Lee helped his team advance to the next round of the North Carolina playoffs Friday night. Following the game Lee and his family made the trip to Atlanta for the Miami game.

Vad Lee and his family stopped along the way on their trip to pick up fellow commit Domonique Noble. The two of them enjoyed the trip. "It was a great trip and we had a great time," said Lee. "The fans and coaches showed me and my family a lot of love and support and that made us feel real welcomed." Lee was also appreciative of the support the fans gave him and Noble on Yellow Jacket Alley.

Following the walk down Yellow Jacket Alley, Vad had a chance to meet with the coaches. "They were all saying they can't wait until I get to Georgia Tech and they really appreciate everything I have been doing to help the class be a good one."

Lee continued his role as one of the leader of the incoming class as he talked with the recruits attending the game. "I talked with Hakeem Flowers and he really seems to be very interested in Georgia Tech and had a great time." Lee also talked with fellow commits Bryan Chamberlain and Shaq Mason. "A lot of us are starting to get to know one another and getting to form some bonds."

One of those future teammates is defensive back Domonique Noble. "I hung out with Domonique and we talked with some 2012 recruits about how great it is at Georgia Tech and that it would be great if they came in the following season." Lee enjoyed everything about the visit in spite of the game outcome.

At one time Lee was thinking about enrolling early at Georgia Tech. "I've talked with the Georgia Tech coaches and my family and we all think it is for the best that I finish my senior year at Hillside." Lee will play basketball and run track and the coaches at Georgia Tech think it's best to honor his commitment to those teams. "I knew it would be hard to leave and not finish up what I've started here at Hillside and the fact that the coaches see that makes it easier." Lee is looking forward to the summer when he'll arrive at Georgia Tech.

Vad is already looking at his future jersey number. "I've told the coaches that I would really like to get the number two since Mario Butler is finished after this season." Lee thinks that would be a possibility.

Lee is now concentrating on finishing the season undefeated. "We are 12-0 and have home field advantage for the next three games in the playoffs." Lee and his teammates will play the state championship game at Wake Forest if they were to win the next three games. Top Stories
