New Arch to Tech's Recruiting Plans

Offensive lineman Brandon Arcidiacono, a 2012 recruit out of Warminster, Pa., received a visit from a member of the Georgia Tech coaching staff this week, and is beginning to learn a little more about the Yellow Jackets.

"Coach (Mike) Sewak came by my school and talked to my coach," Brandon Arcidiacono said. The two had a chance to meet in the office of Arcidiacono's current coach's office at Archbishop Wood High School, and he said it was cool to see his current coaches and Sewak meeting.

Sewak made the trip to visit Arcidiacono because he wanted to check out the recruit's size, he believed. At 6-4, 250 pounds, Arcidiacono said some recruits don't quite size up to their numbers, so Sewak came to see him, but also wanted to make sure the measurables were correct and accurate.

Upon leaving, Sewak left a flash drive for Arcidiacono that contained a virtual tour of the Georgia Tech campus, to give him a better feel of the way things are in Atlanta. Arcidiacono said he thought the campus looked cool and fairly large, but he had yet to decide on whether or not to make a possible visit to the campus.

As for positioning on the Georgia Tech offensive line, Sewak informed Arcidiacono's coach that he liked how fast the rising senior got off the ball, and as a result, he would likely play center in the Yellow Jackets' offense if he decides to come to Tech for college ball.

Arcidiacono has a basic knowledge of the Georgia Tech offense, so it will be up to him and the Tech coaches to lure him to the Flats. He has over 10 offers at this point, and while the Yellow Jackets haven't extended an offer his way yet, both sides seem interested.

"I haven't crossed out any schools yet – everyone still has a chance," Arcidiacono said.

He added that he would have no reservations with playing football away from home, so Georgia Tech may emerge as a contender for the center's services if both sides continue to grow more interested in each other.
