Philpott has gotten off to a strong start in his senior season. He had six receptions for 168 yards and two touchdowns in his last game.

The Tech coaches have kept in touch with Christian since his commitment. "We talk every chance we can. I just talked with Coach (Paul) Johnson Tuesday night.”

Christian and Coach Johnson talked about setting up his official visit. Christian will be taking his official either in December or January. “We both agreed that a vist after the season is the best time. I can get more one on one time with the coaches that way."

A recent visit for the Wofford game impressed Christian. Philpott liked what he saw from the Tech offense. Taking what the offense gave them was something that Philpott liked about the Tech offense. “As a receiver, I loved seeing that. It made me feel even better about my commitment to Tech."

Philpott will be returning to Tech for the Clemson game. Christian had hoped to also visit for the Miami game but he has family plans that weekend.

Two schools have continued to recruit Christian after he gave his verbal commitment to Tech. Miami and Louisville are still contacting Christian. Both schools are trying to get Christian to visit. “I just tell them I’m committed to Georgia Tech and they say they understand that. They let me know that if for some reason I change my mind, I have an offer from them."

Don’t look for Christian to change his mind. "I knew when I made my commitment that Georgia Tech was where I wanted to go. I will make that official on signing day.” Top Stories
