"Coach Paul Johnson called me today and told me that they could offer me, and when he told me that news, I couldn't have asked for more," Tobin said.
After narrowing down his list to a few others schools, Tobin admitted that he was really waiting on Georgia Tech to make the call and give him an offer – he wanted to play for the Yellow Jackets all along.
"I knew in the back of my head that GT was the place for me," Tobin said. "I looked very closely at their academics, and it's a big deal that they have the No. 4 engineering program in the country at Georgia Tech."
Out of St. John Vianney High School, Tobin admitted that he would like to play linebacker at Georgia Tech at some point in his career, but will start at long snapper, as he needs to add weight to his 230- pound frame (he stands 6-foot-3). Either way, Tobin is ecstatic to wear the White and Old Gold.
"This was a team that was champions of the ACC just two years ago, so I'm excited to join them on campus," Tobin said. "Their recent success isn't the biggest factor in my commitment, but it definitely helps to know I'll be playing for a contender when I start this Summer."
Only time will tell if Sean Tobin adds enough weight to play linebacker at Georgia Tech, but it is official now – he is committed to play football in Atlanta starting this Fall.
