Tompkins Forming Bond With Georgia Tech

Running back Nick Tompkins visited Georgia Tech for the Spring Game and is very comfortable with how his relationships with the coaching staff have developed. During his latest visit to Atlanta, Tompkins watched the running backs closely, and he really liked certain aspects of what he saw.

"I really liked watching their offense – they use their backfield so well," Nick Tompkins said. "The A-backs have gotten more effective in the passing game, and I really like that."

Tompkins said he visited with recruiting coordinator Andy McCollum before the scrimmage, and the two had a chance to talk. Then, Tompkins met with the entire staff, and he mentioned his happiness with how well he knows the coaches.

When the game was finished, Tompkins met with head coach Paul Johnson. Since the Spring Game, Tompkins said he has also gotten a phone call from Johnson to check up on things.

Before the Spring Game, Tompkins also attended a regular spring practice, and he had a better chance to interact with other recruits during that workout than he did at the Spring Game.

"We talked a lot about stuff on campus, what we liked and didn't like about the process so far, and just talked about football," Tompkins said.

It's been a special case for Tompkins because he continues to pick up offers late in the spring, so he hasn't had much of a chance to make visits to many of the schools that have recently offered the 2012 recruit out of Brookwood High School.

"It's hard for me to say any schools are favorites right now, because I have a lot of schools that I haven't visited yet," Tompkins said. "This summer will be when I have to make a lot of big decisions."

Added Tompkins: "But I will say this about Georgia Tech – I like them a lot."
