Singleton Sees GT Play Close to Home

Georgia Tech commit Brandon Singleton had a chance to watch the Tech offense up close when he attended their game with Tulane last weekend. The Hahnville, LA receiver will be making a return visit to Tech later this season to watch them play again.

Singleton’s Hahnville team runs an offense that is similar to the Tech offense. He has a good idea of what he’ll be doing when he arrives at Tech. “People say all I’ll do is block when I get to Georgia Tech. I know that isn't true.”

Brandon knows that good receivers get their touches and yards in the Tech offense. “The run sets up the pass very well. I loved what I saw in the game and I absolutely loved the crushing block the wide receivers made on the Tulane defensive backs.” Brandon also likes that aspect of the game.

Singleton also saw the offense in action in the opener against Wofford. Brandon watched Tech receiver DeAndre Smelter score two touchdowns in the game. “It proves that Coach (Paul) Johnson will pass if you try to take away the run. This is another reason I like his offense."

Coach Johnson and the Tech staff stay in touch weekly with Brandon. "The coaches really make me feel like I’m one of the team and I feel like I'm part of the family already."

A return vist to Atlanta for the Miami game is being planned by Singleton. He hopes to make the trip with fellow Tech commit Christian Campbell. "It would be great for the two of us to go to the game together.” A few schools are still staying in touch with Singleton following his commit to Georgia Tech. "Arkansas and Minnesota are recruiting me fairly hard lately.” Brandon has let them know that he is comfortable and happy with his decision to play for Tech.

Singleton plans to major in Sports Medicine. “The new program they have at Georgia Tech really interests me a lot. That and the fact that I love Atlanta makes Georgia Tech the place for me." Top Stories
