Orange Park, Florida sophomore running back Trey Sneed continued his tour of schools Wednesday with a trip to Atlanta to visit Georgia Tech. Sneed made the trip with his parents and sister.

Sneed and his family arrived early and were greeted by Coach Matt Griffin. "He showed us everything. We were very impressed."

The visit included a tour of the campus and a look at the academic side of things. "I was very impressed with how highly Georgia Tech is respected." Sneed learned what it's like to be a student-athlete at Georgia Tech and that appealed to him. "I have a new respect for Georgia Tech as a school."

The stadium and the indoor practice facility caught Trey's attention. "I loved the stadium and the indoor practice facility is one of the best I've seen." Sneed also liked the drawings of how the new weight room will look. "Georgia Tech is really staying ahead of the times."

Trey also met with Coach Paul Johnson. "He said that he rarely gives out offers to recruits that far away from going to college but I was one he really wanted at running back." Coach Johnson also talked to Trey about internships for the upper-class players. "That will be a big factor when I decide on school as will the value of a Tech degree."

A return visit is in the works for Trey. "A bunch of recruits in the Jacksonville area will get together and make a summer trip to schools and Georgia Tech will be one of them." Trey also plans to return for a game in the fall. Following the Tech visit, Trey is headed to Wake Forest, North Carolina, Duke, and North Carolina State.

Prior to making the trip to Tech, Trey's mom did her homeork on the school. "When we got there and made the tour, she just fell in love with the school and the coaches." Trey's dad felt the same way. "It is great that we are all on the same page about Georgia Tech."
