PA Athlete Heads South For A Visit

Aliquippa, Pennsylvania High School has produced many division one and pro football players. The latest hoping to get that chance is athlete Malik Shegog. He and his teammates made the trip down to Georgia last weekend for a 7 on 7 camp being held in Marietta, Georgia. While they were in town, they visited the Georgia Tech campus.

Malik Shegog has been talking to Georgia Tech assistant coach, Mike Sewak for some time now. The trip to Atlanta gave him the chance to get together with Coach Sewak. "He has made it clear that he likes me and that Georgia Tech has a lot of interest in me."

Malik and his teammates took a tour of the campus and the facilities. "Everything was top notch. I really liked the location of the school and especially the academics side of the school." Malik was impressed with what he saw in the short time that he was there.

Coach Sewak and the Georgia Tech staff are looking at Shegog as a cornerback. "He said that I fit what they are looking for in a player at that position." Malik was invited to come back for spring practices, the spring game, and the summer camp.

Malik is hoping to take Coach Sewak up on his invitation to visit again. "I will have to get with my parents and see what I can do as far as which ones I come back for in the future."

The only future plans Shegog has right now is to attend a combine in Ohio on the 17th. "Other than that all my options are open right now."

In addition to Georgia Tech, Malik is also hearing from Missouri, Duke, and Pittsburgh. He is not ready to name any favorites from that list. "I am completely open right now. At this time, I don't have any offers so I am open to any school that has interest in me."

What will Malik be looking for in making his college selection? "Basically I will look at what type of relationship I have with the coaching staff and then I will look at the depth chart at cornerback." If Malik sees the depth chart or two deep full of freshmen then he doesn't see himself looking at that school very hard.
