Denson described the visit as being very good. "I got a chance to see all the facilities including the academic facilities. I also got to see the tutoring system and how the staff helps the players get internships from various businesses in the metro Atlanta area." A small prcentage of college players make the pros and Denson got to see how a Tech degree will prepare him for the business world.

Tech receiver Coach Buzz Preston spent some time with Mon on his visit. "He said that Georgia Tech was looking for me to play B-Back in their system I like playing running back and it is something that does appeal to me." Coach Preston also showed Mon how each degree stacks up with degrees from other schools. "That was very impressive."

A return visit in the spring was also discussed. "He wants me to come to a spring practice to see how they prepare the players at B-back for both the running game and the passing game." Coach Preston also showed Mon how a complete back will have many opportunities to touch the ball.

The visit helped to make Tech a factor in Denson's recruitment. "I like the school, the campus, and the coaches and players. Denson also liked that Tech offered the combination of being one of the top ACC football programs as well as being a top academic school.

Denson currently has eleven offers. North Carolina and Tennessee are two other scools recruiting Mon hard in addition to Tech. North Carolina likes him at safety and Tennessee likes him at running back. Mon is focusing on off-season training and doesn't have any visits planned.

An early decision doesn't seem to be in the plans for Mon. "I think I'll be waiting. I might take some official visits to get more insight on the schools that are really recruiting me hard." Top Stories
