Lance described the atmosphere at the game as great. Lance had a chance to talk with Coach Paul Johnson and Coach (Joe) Speed as well some of the other coaches before the game. "That was great. They already are talking about plans for me in the defensive backfield."

Lawrence had similar feeling despite the rain. He watched the beginning of the game from the tunnel. As the game went on he moved to the stands. "We got so pumped we got back to where we sit with the other recruits Both Lance and I was ready to suit up and play."

Lance and Lawrence both mentioned that the crowd was the loudest they had heard at a game. "The crowd really got into the game and this was a game that had some terrible weather. You can tell the Georgia Tech team has their fans completely supporting them."

The brothers spent some time with a few of the other verbal commits attending the game. They talked with Oneonta, Alabama safety Jalen Johnson as well as North Augusta, South Carolina offensive lineman Jake Whitley.

"Jalen is off his crutches now and only has a brace. To me he looks like he will be good to go when gets there next fall. As far as Jake Whitley is concerned, he is a big man. He will be a huge asset for Coach (Mike) Sewak on the line", said Lawrence.

It won't be long before the brothers return for another game. "We'll be back for the Virginia Tech game. Summer of 2014 cannot get here quick enough", said Lance. Top Stories
