Tysean Holloway Testing the Waters

Tysean Holloway, a junior out of Asheville High School in Asheville, N.C., has taken an interest in visiting Georgia Tech for the Feb. 12 Junior Day festivities.

"I've been to the campus a few times in the past, but I've decided to attend the Junior Day at Georgia Tech in February," Tysean Holloway said.

Holloway also added that his recruiting coach with GT has been Todd Spencer, who has impressed the prospect with some of the things he has said about the campus. Holloway said Spencer has told him about the diversity in the city of Atlanta, but the young man already has a decent amount of familiarity with the city.

"I have some family in Atlanta, so I really like the city," Holloway said. "I mean, I love that the campus is in the middle of the city – who wouldn't want to be a part of that?"

While Holloway is not a native of Georgia, he did mention following the Georgia Tech football season closely in 2010, and had a few interesting comments about the Yellow Jackets' season, which he wanted to discuss without prompting.

"The team needs to be rebuilt after last year, and I definitely want to help with that," Holloway said as a result of what he saw during his visits to Atlanta to watch the Jackets play.

Another issue that Holloway is mulling is the decision on what position to play when he does reach the college level in 2012. But the athlete isn't too picky when it comes to that topic.

"I could play running back, safety or whatever position they need me to play," Holloway said. "As of right now, I am willing to play wherever I can be the biggest help to the school where I sign."

So is Georgia Tech among the front-runners early in the process for Holloway?

"Right now, I haven't even thought about the favorites," Holloway said, who also visited UNC and NC State recently. "I am just going to test the waters for a little while."
