John Marvin Shows Skills At Georgia Tech Camp

Fort Walton Beach, Florida defensive back John Marvin came to the Georgia Tech camp hoping to add to his list of offers. His performance at the camp did nothing to hurt his chances.

John Marvin is one of the so-called sleeper recruits in the state of Florida and his early showings at summer camps has created additional interest and he is now one of the rising stars in Florida.

The past month has seen Marvin's stock rise. "I've recently received offers from Cincinnati and Louisville." Marvin has been busy since his spring break visiting Central Florida, South Florida, Alabama, and Georgia Tech.

The Georgia Tech camp was another opportunity for Marvin to showcase his abilities and he was more than satisfied with his performance at the camp. Marvin measured in at 6'1/2"-193. His 33" vertical and 4.16 shuttle caught the eyes of the Georgia Tech coaches. "I showed my quickness and I did better in my man coverage." Man coverage was one area of his game that Marvin has been working on in the off- season.

Marvin's showing in the afternoon session of the camp was enough to earn him some time with Coach Paul Johnson. "Coach Johnson brought me and my family into his office." Marvin was told that he would be receiving an offer from Georgia Tech once they received his transcripts. "Basically, I'm offered by Georgia Tech."

The visit to Tech and the meeting with Coach Johnson put Georgia Tech in the picture when talking about favorites. "I like them a lot. They are definitely on my list."

Marvin will not be a recruit that is going to wait until signing day to make his decision. "I want to get it out of the way before my senior season." Marvin wants to be able to focus on his senior season without any distractions.

His relationship with the coaches and traditions will be two factors when Marvin makes his college choice. "Me and my parents concentrate on academics. Academics means a lot to us."

His busy schedule will continued with a Sunday visit to Auburn and he will follow that visit with one to Mississippi State. "In July I'm going to go back to the Alabama camp and I might make it to Clemson and Florida State." Marvin has not made plans yet for the visits to Clemson and Florida State. "It all depends. I like it here at Georgia Tech."
