Shaq Mason Feels Cohesion Amongst Recruits

Columbia High, Tennessee offensive lineman and Georgia Tech verbal commit Shaq Mason made his official visit to Georgia Tech this past weekend. The weekend gave Mason a chance to get to know some of his future teammates and to help recruit some of the non-commits that were taking their official visits.

Mason enjoyed every aspect of the visit. "It was a great time and we really loved how the coaches made us feel really special and part of the family." The coaches made Mason looking forward to starting his career at Georgia Tech.

Shaq was hosted on the visit by Georgia Tech offensive lineman Omoregie Uzzi. "He really showed me a great time and made me feel like I was already a teammate."

Mason didn't miss the chance to get to know all of his future teammates. "After we had dinner, we all talked with each other and got to know each other better. " Mason and his fellow recruits feel they have great chemistry and are looking forward to getting the team back to where they were in 2009. "I know I am excited about this recruiting class because everyone is focusing on what it takes to make the team the best it can be."

There wasn't one recruit that Shaq felt that he got to know better than the others. "We all got along well and we will be coming in with the attitude that we'll do whatever it takes to put a great team on the field."

Mason had a chance to talk to the coaches on his visit. "They said they were glad to have me and they can't wait until I get there." Shaq had a chance to speak with Coach Paul Johnson about where he'll play when he arrives at Tech. "He mentioned to me that I might have a chance to play defense, but I feel like Coach Johnson does, that I will be playing on offense." However, Mason is not averse to playing defense. "Wherever they need me the most is where I'll play."

Mason enjoyed the entire visit but felt that having the chance to spend time with the players and recruits was the best part of the trip. "We all made sure we spent time together as a whole group rather than dividing into smaller groups." Their goal is to be close as a team. Top Stories
