Profile - Jeremiah Oatsvall
The Georgia Tech 2016 signing class included Brentwood Academy TN defensive tackle Brandon Adams. Adam’s teammate and Brentwood quarterback Jeremiah Oatsvall recently made the trip from Nashville to visit Tech.
Tech was one of the first schools to recruit Jeremiah when they visited him during his sophomore year. “They have maintained interest since then.” Oatsvall described the visit as great.
Jeremiah was accompanied on the visit by his dad. “He loved every minute of the visit.” Besides looking at the athletic side of things, Jeremiah also talked with the academic support people. The visit was the first time on campus for Oatsvall. Jeremiah felt that Atlanta was a lot like Nashville only bigger. “I felt at ease on the visit and that is a good thing.”
Coach Paul Johnson met with Jeremiah and explained the recruiting situation at quarterback. Tech has offered two quarterback recruits. If there isn’t any movement with those two, Jeremiah could receive an offer. “He said that Coach (Andy) McCollum or Coach (Bryan) Cook would be coming to Nashville in the first week of May to watch me practice.” Jeremiah could know more about a possible offer at that time. Jeremiah would be grateful if that offer came his way.
Oatsvall quarterbacks Brentwood’s spread offense out of the shotgun. Running the Tech offense is something that appeals to Jeremiah. “I know I would have to go under the center and that is fine by me. I just feel that their offense is something I really like and can run."
Getting a chance to play again with Brandon Adams would be a plus for Jeremiah in choosing a school. “I’m glad to call him a friend.” Jeremiah also knows Tech freshman linebacker Brant Mitchell and A Back Nathan Cottrell.
At the present time, Oatsvall has seven offers and feels more could be coming. Jeremiah also has basketball offers from Belmont and Lipscomb. Jeremiah has already decided that he’ll only play football at the next level. “Football is where my future lies.”
A date for making his decision is something that Jeremiah has given a lot of thought. He hopes to make that decision before the start of his senior season. “If I can’t find a school that fits, then I’ll wait until after the season to make my decision.”
Being comfortable at the school he chooses will be the primary factor for Jeremiah in making his decision. “I also want to have a good relationship with the coaches and players.”
