Jackets extend 2012 offer to Moody

Chris Moody, a quarterback out of McDonough, Ga., becomes the latest verbal offer by Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson. Moody was on campus today, and he is still trying to find the words to describe his happiness in receiving the offer.

"I'm just taking it all in," Moody said, taking a deep breath. "I'm still so excited."

Moody visited the Tech campus today, along with many other recruits for the 2012 class, but he spent some time chatting one-on-one with quarterbacks coach Brian Bohannon. After they had a little time to chat, Bohannon took Moody into Johnson's office, where the head coach presented Moody with the offer.

Aside from the offer, the Saturday afternoon visit was pleasant for Moody, and his first visit to any school so far in the process. Citing the Campus Recreation Center and athlete dorms as points of impression, Moody became a believer in Georgia Tech this afternoon.

"I talked to some of the other recruits, and they reminded me that the academics can be tough," Moody said. "But it would keep me humble and encourage me to hit the books."

On the field, Moody likes the style of offense he would lead, and thinks he would also make the offense better if he was at the helm.

"I'm a dual threat, so I think I'd be a good replacement for the past quarterbacks if I go to Georgia Tech," Moody said.

The offer is the third for Moody, who also has offers from Virginia Tech and South Carolina. If the junior from Henry County High School decides to attend Georgia Tech, the challenge to earn playing time as a quarterback will certainly be there for Moody.
