Hansen makes friends on visit

Georgia Tech commit Connor Hansen took his official visit this past weekend. The Tallahassee, FL Lawton Chiles offensive lineman used the visit to see what his next four or five years would be like.


The visit was even better than Connor thought it would be. Connor made the visit with his dad and 12 year old brother. They too had a great time. “I got a great feel of how it will be there and I loved what I saw. The recruits, players, coaches, and students there all are great and made us feel like family.”

Getting to know fellow offensive line commit Mikey Minihan was part of the trip that stood out to Connor. The two had talked through social media but this trip gave them a chance to get to know each other in person. “We have a lot in common and one of those things is playing for Georgia Tech. That connection was and is strong. Now we'll have a good start when fall camps starts up."

Tech offensive lineman Parker Braun hosted Hansen on his visit. “I don't think they could have picked a better person. We hit it off really well.” Braun and Hansen watched some film of Parker’s play this season. “I can tell you he is very impressive guard. He plays hard from whistle to whistle and you can see the mean streak in him.” Connor would be happy if he could play like Parker did as a freshman.

Meeting with Coach Mike Sewak and Coach Ron West gave Connor a chance to see what plans they had for him. “They are starting me out at center. If they like what they see, that is where they want me to play.” If Connor has trouble with the center-quarterback exchange, he could be moved out to guard or tackle
depending on where he would fit best. “I know I want to play and it doesn't matter where I play to be honest."

Connor and his classmates have not stopped helping to recruit additional members to the class. The latest was quarterback Tobias Oliver. Hansen likes the possibility of them working together at center and quarterback. “I think he'll make a very good quarterback at Tech. I wouldn’t mind playing center with him."
