In-home visit for Haley

Three-star Vanderbilt cornerback commit Grant Haley hosted two Georgia Tech assistants on an in-home visit last night. Despite meeting with another school, Haley remains committed to the Commodores and has yet to schedule an official visit anywhere else.

Atlanta (GA) Lovett cornerback Grant Haley has had a whirlwind of a couple weeks after the departure of Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin. He decided to remain committed to the Commodores through the coaching search but has opened up his recruitment.

One of the teams that Haley has listened to is Georgia Tech. A few Yellow Jacket assistants made the trip to see the three-star cornerback for an in-home visit last night.

"The in-home visit with Georgia Tech went very well," said Haley. "I was able to talk to Coach Owens and Coach Roof about a lot of things that I wanted and needed to hear."

"The big thing for me was playing time," he added. "There's a path for me to see the field early and that is attractive. I also was impressed with the academic plan that they had laid out for me already."

Although he enjoyed the meeting with Georgia Tech assistants Ted Roof and Lamar Owens, Haley did not set up an official visit with the hometown team. He explained why.

"I am waiting on to see what happens at Vanderbilt before I schedule a visit to Georgia Tech," he admitted. "I have heard about Vanderbilt hiring Derek Mason to be the head coach but I haven't heard from him yet. I think it is a good hire and I want to meet with some of the coaches there before I decide what direction to go in from here. If I set up a visit elsewhere it would be after I talk to the coaches at Vanderbilt."
