Profile - Nathan Cottrell
Following his performance at Georgia Tech’s June camp, Knoxville, Tennesse running back Nathan Cottrell was offered a scholarship. Cottrell didn’t take long to commit after receiving the scholarship offer.
Even though he gave his verbal commit to Tech this summer, Nathan is still hearing from other schools. “Middle Tennessee and Cincinnati are still after me pretty hard but they know that I am firmly committed to Georgia Tech.” Cotrell stays in touch with the Tech coaches and they are all on the same page.
Nathan has kept track of the Tech offense through the first two games. “I’ve seen that they are getting the ball on the edge to the A Backs and that is music to my ears.” Nathan has really liked what he has seen from the Tech offense so far this season.
Cottrell knows that being undefeated is good no matter who you have played. “They have played hard and steady from what I have seen.” Nathan feels his commit is looking better and better every day. “I made the right decision."
The Georgia Tech-Georgia Southern game this weekend will be the first return visit for Nathan following his commitment. Nathan has plans to tour the whole campus on his return visit. “I want to see and meet everyone again. I am very much looking forward to it."
Cottrell is also looking forward to February and signing day. "If signing day were tomorrow, I'd be right there to sign to make it official."
Nathan continues to tell schools thanks but no thanks when they call him. "A lot of schools had a chance to get me to visit earlier but they wanted to wait. Tech didn't and I like what I saw at Georgia Tech.” The fact that Nathan liked what he saw from the coaches, the program, and the school made it easy for him to commit. “Why wouldn't I make it official with my commitment to them."
