Visit Only Increases Robert's Excitement

Playing his high school football in the Atlanta suburb of Norcross, 2012 Georgia Tech offensive line commitment Chase Roberts is no stranger to the Yellow Jacket program.

Despite his familiarity with the Georgia Tech campus, Chase Roberts was still extremely excited about the opportunity to take his official visit to Atlanta, which he did this past weekend.

"It was very, very nice," Roberts said of his visit to his future home. "Everything was well taken care of and planned out. It gave us the opportunity to relate and get a feel for what it's going to be like going there next year."

Roberts' host for the visit was freshman offensive lineman Morgan Bailey, who kept Roberts busy with a variety of different activities."

"We got there on Friday around midday. We got in the room and ate lunch at the hotel and had a couple of academic presentations. That night, we went out to eat. Then we hung out with our host a little bit. They kind of showed us around the city and the campus. That morning, we got up and had breakfast and the toured the campus."

It was during a position meeting with Coach Mike Sewak that Roberts was able to get a better idea of what he can expect when he puts on the pads this summer.

"We had a position meeting with Coach Sewak. So me, Morgan and Freddie (Burden), we probably talked for an hour and a half just about the scheme and what Coach Sewak expects."

With his official visit now out of the way, Roberts says he is more excited than ever about the Yellow Jacket program. In fact, he says he doesn't have the words to describe how excited he is to start his career at Georgia Tech in just a few short months.

"I can't stress enough how much more excited I was. I've always been a Tech fan, but I can't stress how much more excited I was after the visit than before I got there. It really opened my eyes."

As time wounds down toward his high school graduation, Roberts will continue to focus on improving his game to become the best player he can be when he hits campus in June.

"I'm definitely going to continue working out. I'll run a lot and just try to show up in the best possible condition that I can because I am sure that the workouts are going to kick my butt when I get there."
