A trip to Atlanta for Georgia Tech's Junior Day led to the first of two in-state offers. "I enjoyed the trip and left with an offer." Pat Gamble received the news from his recruiting coach Brian Bohannon.
The offer was the third for Gamble. "I already had offers from Virginia and Southern Mississippi." It wasn't much later that Gamble picked up his fourth offer from the other in-state school. "I heard from Coach Mark Richt who called me with an offer from Georgia."
Gamble likes the idea of playing in the 3-4 defensive scheme run by both of the in-state schools. He feels that stopping the run is one of his strengths. Fitting into the system is something that Pat feels is important.
It won't be a surprise to see more offers coming Gamble's way before the spring is over. "I'm hearing from just about everybody in the ACC and SEC."
With four offers in-hand, Gamble is not ready yet to name a leader but he does feel that one school is recruiting him harder than the others. "I'd say that Georgia Tech is recruiting me the hardest at this point."
Gamble's reasons for choosing a school are very simple. "I want to get a good education and play some ball." Pat will look to his mom and uncle in making that decision.
In spite of all the schools showing him attention, Pat has not made any plans for any future visits or to attend any camps this summer.
