A.J. Liddell Could Stay Close To Home

Receiver A.J. Liddell visited Atlanta for the Georgia Tech Spring Game last weekend, and he enjoyed everything he saw about the festivities and campus. He's been told he could have multiple roles on the team and he likes that about the Jackets.

"The fans are funny, man," A.J. Liddell said. "The stadium is great, I love the campus, and I love the academics at the school."

So it sounds like Liddell was pleased with his entire experience for the weekend, and while it wasn't his first visit to Georgia Tech, he was happy to make a return visit on such a big weekend.

Liddell also spoke to head coach Paul Johnson and his recruiting coordinator, Brian Bohannon, before and after the game. He was happy to get the chance to speak with the two, despite the coaches having so much on their plates on such a busy day.

"They told me to keep up the good work and that they'd be happy to have me," Liddell said. "They also told me to keep up my grades."

Liddell said he didn't have much interaction with the other recruits at the Spring Game, but he is clear that Georgia Tech is his No. 1 right now. The wide receiver out of Chapel Hill High School in Douglasville, Ga. is listening to other schools, but he is leaning towards the Yellow Jackets.

"West Virginia is coming down to visit next week, so we'll see what they have to say," Liddell said.

Liddell says he has been told that he would likely be allowed to play several roles for the Yellow Jackets if he plays his college football in Atlanta. "They've told me I may play wide receiver, wing or kick returner."

Now, we will wait to see if Liddell accepts the challenge to play those positions at Georgia Tech and commits to the team.
