Kurt Freitag Looking For First Visit To Flats

Having received a recent offer from Georgia Tech, tight end Kurt Freitag is looking to learn more about the Yellow Jackets.

"I've never visited the campus, but I'm definitely hoping to make a visit some time very soon," Freitag said, following an offer from Georgia Tech.

While he hasn't conversed with any of the coaches this week, Freitag said that Coach Andy McCollum made a visit to Buford High School, and the two spoke briefly during that visit. While McCollum was in Buford to speak with some of Freitag's teammates, the junior liked that McCollum took some time to also speak with him.

Georgia Tech becomes the second school to offer Freitag, joining only the South Carolina Gamecocks so far. While he plays tight end, Freitag said he has also spent time at defensive end and linebacker during his time at Buford High.

"When they offered last week, they didn't really specify which side of the ball they'd like to see me play," Freitag said. "But I can play either one."

When asked about which side of the ball he'd like to play, Freitag was clear. "I have zero preference at all," Freitag said. "Wherever they want me to play is where I'll play if I commit to Georgia Tech."

At 6-3, 217 pounds, it looks like Freitag is likely too small to play defensive end for Al Groh, but there is a chance that his height could pay dividends in the GT linebacking corps if he decides to become a Yellow Jacket.
