Keyante Green Warms Up To Tech

Eagles Landing Christian (Georgia) recruit Keyante Green is arguably the best running back in the state of Georgia in the 2013 class. Today he made the short trip from McDonough, Georgia to see Georgia Tech and the campus. Keyante in the past has been lukewarm in HIS interest towards Georgia Tech and the coaches were hoping to change that interest on his visit.

The visit to Atlanta to visit Georgia Tech turned out to be a good one for Keyante Green. "It went very well. I had a real good time there and came away with a lot of information about the school, the campus, and the football program. In the past I just saw the campus as I went by it on the interstate. Today I had a chance to see first hand how different appearances can be."

Greene's opinion of the campus changed once he took a tour of the facilities. " I mean it is very different once you get on campus. I loved seeing the locker room, all of the football facilities, and the stadium. I got a chance to see the CRC building which was very nice. The thing that really impressed me the most were the classrooms. They were much different and better than I thought they would be. I like the walk way where you look up and see the binary numbers on the ceiling, that was cool. This visit really changed my view of Georgia Tech."

Keyante had a chance to spend some time with linebacker Coach Joe Speed while he was on campus. "I mostly talked with my recruiting coach, Coach Joe Speed. He talked to me about how they really want me at Georgia Tech and how much they would use me at the A-Back position. We were going to talk with Coach (Paul) Johnson but he had to be somewhere else and I didn't get a chance to talk with him. I understand that he is the man that offers scholarship on offense, so I really want to talk with him."

The visit helped put Georgia Tech in a better light for Green. "The visit moved Tech up my list. Right now I would say my schools that I have the most interest in are Tennessee, Georgia, and Virginia Tech as they are ones that offered me a scholarship."

Receiving an offer might change that list for Green. "It would put them right up them with those schools, that is how much this visit changed my perception and openness about Georgia Tech."

Green has one other visit planned this summer. "Next week, either on Tuesday or Friday I will be heading up to Tennessee to visit them and take a tour around the school. After that I'm not sure what is next on my agenda."
