Etta-Tawo a Receiver to Keep An Eye On

Wide receiver Amba Etta-Tawo, a 2012 recruit out of McEachern High School, has returned home from his trip to Georgia Tech and was pleased with the Junior Day festivities.

"It was a great experience," Amba Etta-Tawo said. "I'm a really big fan of their facilities."

Etta-Tawo is a young man of few words, but when asked about the Junior Day at Tech, he was made a believer by one former NFL player who was also at the camp.

"There were a few former pros there, but the one that stood out was Chris Draft," Etta-Tawo said. "I really enjoyed talking to him."

A 6-foot-1, 172-pound receiver out of Powder Springs, Ga., Etta-Tawo did not receive an offer from Georgia Tech during his visit, but he remains confident after speaking with the coaches that he could be a valuable asset to the university.

"My strengths are on deep routes and fade patterns," Etta-Tawo said. "In my senior year, I need to work on improving on my yards after I catch the ball."

During the camp, Etta-Tawo mentioned that he and our juniors got familiar with one another, recapping their respective seasons back at their high schools. Staying close to home is also important for the junior, and having visited the campus in the past, he likes the familiarity he has with Georgia Tech.

Now, we will see in the coming weeks and months if Etta-Tawo receives an offer from the school with which he has so much familiarity. His next visit will be to Vanderbilt.
