Dobson On Campus of His Favorite School

Tallahassee, Fla. Quarterback Matt Dobson is spending the weekend in Atlanta, and his visit to Georgia Tech has gone well so far. He's staying off-campus with his father, but he got to see a lot of football activities on Friday afternoon, which have him thinking good things about Georgia Tech.

"I went to meetings with Coach Bohannon, and then I got to watch practice," Dobson said.

In watching practice, the quarterback recruit from North Florida Christian focused on the play of the signal-callers in the Georgia Tech offense. Having never played a triple-option offense, Matt Dobson knows he has a lot to learn, but the process has already begun.

"The control that the QBs have over the offense is great," Dobson said. "They take some hits in practice, but I like that I'll get to take a few hits."

In meeting with the coaches, Dobson was informed that they intend to improve in the passing game in the coming years, and Dobson may be a key factor in that improvement. Currently, Dobson ranks the Yellow Jackets as his top school, citing a solid relationship with the coaching staff as a big reason.

But Dobson is also focused on furthering himself academically, and he is impressed with everything Georgia Tech has to offer in the classroom. For that reason, he is ranking GT over Florida International, the No. 2 school on his list.

After his afternoon visit on campus, Dobson left campus with his father, but will return to Tech in the morning to watch the Jackets' scrimmage tomorrow.
