The trip to Atlanta went as expected for Travin. "It went great. They treated us well and made us feel at home. I am glad that I was able to get this chance to make the visit to Georgia Tech."

As expected, following our interview with Cook County coach, Ken Cofer, Travin followed through with the commit to Georgia Tech. Getting an offer from Georgia Tech was a dream come true for Henry. "I know when Coach (Andy) McCollum told me about the visit and then the offer last week I was so happy. It was very emotional."

Georgia Tech running back Charles Perkins hosted Travin on his visit. "He was great and made me feel real welcome and at ease." Travin met with the academic people and had a chance to see the facilities. "I couldn't have had a better time."

The best part of the trip for Travin was learning about the job opportunities available after getting a degree from Georgia Tech. "They showed me how many players have gone on to great jobs. Seeing how valuable a Georgia Tech degree is and the doors it will open for you is great."

Travin also met with the coaches on his visit to talk about his future. "I talked mostly with Coach Buzz Preston and Coach Andy McCollum. I talked a little with Coach Johnson but he had to leave to attend the funeral of Jamal Golden's mother."

Henry is a versatile athlete and the coaches have a decision to make when it comes to finding a position for him. "I will start off at wide receiver but I was told that if needed I could be moved to outside linebacker. I'm cool with either position even though I love playing wide receiver."

At 6'3"-227, Travin feels he can use his height and 4.5 speed to his advantage. "I love to block and will lay one into the defensive player. On defense I am a sure tackler."

Travin will look to be more crisp when running his routes. "On a vertical route, I can use my body and speed , but I can do better at routes and I will improve on that." Travin will be doing a lot of working out on his own between now and June when he enrolls at Georgia Tech." Top Stories
