Touani gets good vibe

Oxon Hill, Maryland offensive lineman Stefan Touani recently traveled south from Maryland with his family to visit two ACC schools. One of those schools had Stephan’s interest for not only their football program but also for their academics.

The first stop for Stefan was Atlanta where he watched Georgia Tech practice. “Georgia Tech is a school that interests me even before you think about football.” Touani attends a science and technology school and is interested in the curriculum at Tech.

Stefan focused on the offensive linemen during the practice and noticed that it was fast paced and up tempo. He also noticed the interaction between the coaches and the players. “When the players made a mistake, they stopped and corrected the mistake right away.”

Touani also met with Coach Paul Johnson and offensive line coaches Mike Sewak and Ray Rychleski. The coaches liked Stefan’s frame. He is currently 6’2”- 300. “They asked me to come back for their summer camp so they can watch me work.” Stephan plans to make the return visit.

Visit invitations are starting to come in for Touani asking him to attend summer camps. Stefan plans to attend camps at Ohio State and Penn State in addition to the one at Tech. Clemson Maryland, and Vanderbilt are some of the other schools showing interest in Touani. Stefan visited Clemson following his visit to Tech.

In-state school Maryland is the one school that Stefan feels is recruiting him the hardest. Staying close to home, however, is not going to be a factor for Stefan. “I’m open to any school that has a great combination of academics and football.”

The school’s campus and their coaching staff would be other factors that Stefan will look at when making his decision. “I really enjoyed the campus at Georgia Tech and I got a good vibe from their coaching staff.”

Stefan doesn’t plan to make his decision until sometime during his senior season. He may even wait until signing day. “I have a lot of schools to visit before I start thinking about a decision.” Top Stories
