Sellers was scheduled to host an in-home from the Tech coaches but the visit has now been rescheduled. Coach Paul Johnson will be visiting in January. A lengthy staff meeting forced the postponement. “I told them that it was cool that I also would like to have the full time instead of a short visit."

A visit to one of Tech’s bowl practices is a possibility for Trent. "They want me to watch the defensive line and see what they are teaching them.” After watching freshman KeShun Freeman, Trent wants to be prepared to have a chance to do the same thing. Trent is looking forward to seeing what the coaches expect from the defensive ends.

Trent will be taking his official visit to Tech the weekend of January 16th. Sellers has been looking forward to the official visit for a long time. “Ever since I committed, I’ve wanted to get there as soon as I can.”

The Tech coaches still see Trent starting out as a defensive end. “Coach (Mike) Pelton said he wanted to take advantage of my size and speed from the end position.” Trent feels that if he continues to grow and gain weight that he could be moved inside.

Like the rest of his 2015 classmates, Trent paid close attention to the Jackets last few games. "I’m proud of my teammates and I’ll be glad to officially become Yellow Jacket soon."

Now that his season is over, Trent will be working out with a sports training company in Atlanta. The company specializes in training recruits at specific positions. Trent plans to start out with some strength and conditioning and then he’ll start his position workouts.

Once Trent signs his LOI, he’ll also be getting a regimented program from the Tech coaches. “I'll have the best of both worlds."
