Woods rated his visit to Tech as a solid 10. "My player host was Patrick Gamble and I could have not asked for a better player to host me. We had a great time talking about what Tech has done for him and what it could do for me.” Jordan also spent time with Tech commit Chris Martin as well as the other recruits on their visits.

Gamble talked to Woods about the educational opportunities at Tech. The two also talked about campus life and what it was like to live in Atlanta. “What he talked about really confirmed what I knew and wanted to know about Tech. It left me with a good feeling about what Tech offers."

If Woods were to come to Tech, he would be playing on the defensive line with Martin. “We talked about the possibilities of him playing inside and me at end. We really hit it off."

Jordan spent some time with each of the Tech coaches. “They told me my future was a bright one and that the opportunities to play early and also get a valuable degree would make my future even brighter.”

Jordan’s parents loved talking with Coach Paul Johnson. “They told me that he was genuine and really came across as a person that is very honest and trustworthy. Coming from them, that means a lot."

The highlight of the visit for Jordan was sitting down with the academic people. Talking with the recruits, players, and coaches was also right up there for Woods. “Academically and athletically, the players have the best of both worlds at Tech.”

Woods will not be announcing his decision this Monday. "I haven't informed any school that I am committed to them. In fact, I have two more visits to make." Jordan will be at West Virginia next weekend and then he’ll decide between Miami and South Carolina for his final visit. A midweek visit to the third school is also a possibility. "I'd have to see how my parents can work that out if I wanted to go that route."

When will Jordan make his decision? “I'll know when God lets me know it is time. When I get that notion that God has shown me the right school, I'll make a decision.”
