Michael Flint Adds ACC School To Top 4

Oxford, Alabama offensive lineman Michael Flint is known for his physical run blocking. Flint has a new school on his list of four schools. Flint visited the new school three weeks ago and has plans to return for one of their games and an official visit.

Michael Flint made a recent visit to Georgia Tech and the visit vaulted them into his top four. "I visited the campus and talked with the coaches about three weeks ago. Flint got to see everything there was to see about Georgia Tech. "I love what they are doing in upgrading all of their facilities not just football." Flint came away feeling they have the best facilities around.

Michael had a chance to meet with the coaches on his visit. "I talked with Coach Johnson and the offensive line coaches." The coaches talked to Flint about the academics and how much they would like to have him at Geogia Tech. "I liked the visit so much that I decided to come back for another visit." Flint will be making a return visit to Tech for their upcoming game with North Carolina.

The offensive line coaches at Tech talked to Flint about their blocking schemes. He found them tobe quite different from those he uses at Oxford. "I feel I am good enough to work hard and get a handle on the scheme they employ. To be honest with you, I rally am a physical offensive lineman and love to run block." Flint feels the scheme is one he could easily learn.

Now that Tech has entered the picture, there are four schools on his favorites list. "I like Georgia Tech, Tennessee, Oregon, and Clemson." Flint has all four even right now. "I will lett my unofficial and official visits to the schools be the determining factor." Michael knows that every campus has a different feel to it and the one that really makes him feel more at home is the one he will be choosing.

There are a few things about Georgia Tech that stood out to Flint. "It is a very good academic school and they love to be physical off the ball and run it. They have a great tradition and what they are doing in regards to their facilities is great. Combine all that and it is easy to see why I have them up there."

In addition to the visits to Tech, Flint is also trying to plan visits to the other schools. "I need to try and get in touch with the coaches at Clemson about possibly coming to Clemson this weekend for their game there. I was very hesitant about Clemson at first as they have a lot of linemen already committed but they are saying they want to take one more if they can." Flint will travel to Clemson to see what happens.
