The last time we talked to New Hampton School point guard Travis Jorgenson, he had just given his verbal commitment to Coach Brian Gregory and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Tuesday he made the commitment official by signing his letter of intent.

Tuesday was the first day, in the late signing period, for recruits in the 2013 class to send in their letters of intent. Jorgenson was glad that this day signified the end of his recruitment. "I'm very happy. I'm ready to move on and keep working."

Travis is already preparing for his time at Georgia Tech. He has gotten together with the coaching staff and strength coach to prepare himself for the next level. "I'm working on my strength and conditioning and my ball handling." Travis will also continue to work on other aspects of his game.

One adjustment that Travis won't have to make is shooting from the college three point line. New Hampton School plays in one of the top leagues in the country; a league that uses the college three point line. "It's one of the reasons I came here along with the competition." The move allowed Travis to prepare and have one less adjustment to worry about in his move to college ball.

Travis was not at a loss for solid competition this past season. He played against some of the top division one recruits this past season. "Every night it seemed like there were division one recruits on the other team."

Georgia Tech guards Mfon Udofia and Pierre Jordan are graduating so there are opportunities for Travis in his freshman year. "I'll just try to control what I can control and keep improving." Travis is working on coming in to school in good shape in order to take advantage of the opportunities.

Jorgenson has been working on his strength and conditioning over the past four weeks. "I can definitely tell I'm improving." Travis will continue to work on his strength and conditioning until he enters school in June. Travis will be working at the point when he enters school. "That's the way they recruited me and that's what I like about it." Travis is looking forward to arriving on campus June 22nd along with fellow freshman Quinton Stephens. Top Stories
