Durham described the weekend visit as fantastic. " They treated me and my whole family great and showed us everything Georgia Tech has to offer." The official visit included a tour of the entire school. "We got to check out everything from academics to football." Step decribed the academic side of things as awesome and thought the facilities were great. "It is a great combination of the two parts of the institution."

On his previous visits Durham got to see and learn a lot about Tech. This visit reinforced what he thought about the school. "I've been there so many times that it feels like I am visiting a home away from home. I love it there and know deep down that I truly made the best decision to attend Georgia Tech."

Step got to talk to the entire coaching staff on the visit. "They all said they can't wait for me to get there in January. I start classes on January 7th." The coaches are expecting Durham to come in for spring practice and compete for playing time as a freshman. "They say I am talented enough to push for playing time immediately and that is something I love hearing."

Georgia Tech A Back Deon Hill hosted Durham on his visit. Step enjoyed having Hill as his host. "He feels Georgia Tech is just that close to getting to the next level and I hope the class coming in this signing period will be one to get us over the hump."

Durham will already be enrolled at Tech before signing day. Rather than have a signing on campus, Step plans to head back to Jacksonville. "I will sign there with my whole family at my high school so all the people I care about can be involved."
