Okogie described the visit as great. “There wasn't a football game here so I had more personal time with the coaches, players, and time to check out the academics.” The visit gave Josh more insight into Georgia Tech and their rich basketball history and the value of a Tech degree.

Josh was impressed with what Coach Gregory and his staff are doing to get Tech basketball back to where it was in the Coach Bobby Cremins days. “They said I could be a big part of that and they really want me there at Georgia Tech.” Josh liked hearing that he could be a part of that.

Several current players spent time with Josh on his visit. “I hung out with Sylvester Ogbonda, Charles Mitchell, Quinten Stephens, and Tadric Jackson.” The players all let Josh know that Tech is a special place. “They said they wouldn’t change their mind about coming to Tech no matter what.” The players let Josh know about the daily routine both during the season and during the off season. “A lot of NBA players work out there so it would be great to pick their brain.”

Georgia Tech also had Josh covered with the academic end of things. “I want to major in business and they have a prestigious degree from their school of business.”

Josh will not be taking any additional official visits. “My choice for college will come from Georgia Tech, Kansas State, or Tennessee." Okogie knows what he is looking for and he will now sit down with his parents and his brothers to discuss his decision. “We will discuss the positives and negatives about each school and decide which one fits me best.”

An early signing period decision is still planned by Josh. He hasn’t set up a definite decision date. “The only constraint on the date will be that it will be before the early signing period ends.” Josh feels that he could wait until the final day or wake up one morning and decide to make the decision.
