Lashley looking to visit GT

West Point, Mississippi offensive lineman Scott Lashley has continued to pile up the offers. The 6’7”-305 recruit has offers from many of the ACC and SEC schools. Could another school from one of those conferences be close to offering Lashley?

Just when Scott felt that his recruitment is starting to slow down, another school has come along to kick start it again. Georgia Tech is the latest school to show interest in Scott. “They let me know that an offer would have to come in person from Coach (Paul) Johnson.”

Scott plans to make that trip. "My family and myself will ride over to Atlanta and visit the school. Lashley has family in the area and has driven by Tech before but has never seen the campus. “I’d love to get an offer from the Yellow Jackets." Scott and his family plan to visit Tech at the end of the month.

An offer from Tech would put them in the same position as the other schools that have already offered. “My interest will depend on how I feel when I’m there.” Scott will be looking to see how he likes the campus, the academics, and how the players on the team get along. “If I like what I see then they will be a school that I’ll be considering in the end.” Many recruits list academics as one of the factors in making their decision. Scott is serious about that factor. “I am proud of my high school achievements and I want to continue that in college.”

Right now Scott doesn’t have a deadline for making that choice. “If Tech offers, I’ll have a new team to consider along with all the other schools that have offered. “It’s best to make sure of my decision and then set a date.”

At 6’7”-305, most of the schools recruiting Scott like him as a left tackle. Scott has played baseball, basketball, and soccer. He feels that has helped him become a better football player.

Lashley has two schools in mind when asked about which schools are recruiting him the hardest. “I have to say Alabama and Tennessee are really recruiting me hard right now.” Scott feels an offer from Tech could put them in that group. “You never know until you sign you letter of intent.”
