Caldwell Searching For Visit Date

Mays High School senior defensive lineman Darrius Caldwell mentioned on Sunday that he is still not sure when he plans to visit Georgia Tech, but the verbal commit expressed his continued dedication to play for the Yellow Jackets in 2011.

"I'm still strongly on board and committed to Georgia Tech," Darrius Caldwell said. "I just haven't set a date to make my official visit to campus."

The senior added that he attended a couple of GT's games this season, and was pleased with the way things went while he was on campus and inside Bobby Dodd Stadium.

Despite not setting an official visit yet, Caldwell mentioned that he does plan to make that visit before Signing Day and that he has spoken to Coach Preston regarding the visit. He said that he is eager to come see the facilities and speak with the coaches again, but they just haven't been able to find a date that works to this point.

"Right now, I'm just working out and preparing for college football," Caldwell said. Once again, he added that he does intend for that college football to be played at Georgia Tech.

When asked about his fit in the defensive scheme, Caldwell was excited to mention that he feels like a good fit for Al Groh's 3-4 base defense. At 6-foot-5 and 210 pounds, Caldwell would be an imposing force on the outside of the defensive line.

"At Mays, we ran a lot of 3-4 and 3-3-5 defense, so I am comfortable with the defense and how it runs," Caldwell said. "And to be honest, I was influenced by the change in defense at Georgia Tech – running a 3-4 would benefit me."

It sounds like Caldwell and the Yellow Jackets coaching staff are close to settling on a date for an official visit, so hopefully we should know soon when the verbal commit plans to check in on campus.
