Moody Hears What He Needs To From GT Staff

Class of 2013 quarterback Mykal Moody made the trip from Conway, South Carolina to Atlanta for a weekend visit to learn more about Georgia Tech, where he had a chance to see the entire campus.

"It's pretty nice up there," Mykal Moody said after seeing the classrooms and football facilities.

Having a chance to catch up with Georgia Tech's coaches was also important, and Moody heard exactly what he needed to hear from recruiting coach Mike Sewak and staff.

"I talked to the quarterbacks coach (Brian Bohannon) and wide receivers coach ("Buzz" Preston), and they said that if they're going to win a national championship, they'll have to pass the ball more, but they'll still run a lot," Moody said. "That brightens things up a lot because I can do both well."

Head coach Paul Johnson also spoke to Moody and the other recruits who visited Saturday, stressing that grades and other activities, such as internships, were also important for football players in his program. Moody has stated an interest in Georgia Tech's academics, and was excited by the thought of interning while playing for the Yellow Jackets.

Getting to walk around the campus gave Moody a good feeling for what student life on campus is like in Atlanta, and catching up with Sewak gave him a better gauge for when the offer will be coming from Georgia Tech.

"Coach Sewak told me, ‘Don't worry about it, the offer is coming,'" Moody said.

When Moody takes the SAT and ACT in the approaching weeks, he should know more about where he stands with an offer from the Yellow Jackets. He added that South Carolina and Clemson might also be closing in on offering the junior, so it may be a big week for Moody. Top Stories
