Jared Edwards, from Arlington (Tex.) Mansfield Timberview HS, announced back in October that he'd be attending Iowa State University. But a new team has entered the picture putting that commitment into question possibly. That team is Georgia Tech and Jared will be in Atlanta (Ga.) this weekend. He will decide after the visit whether or not he'll switch his commitment to GT.

How is your recruiting going this late in the year?

"It has really heated up and I think there might be change of which college I will attend."

I know you have given Iowa State your verbal, which school has entered the picture for you?

"Coach (Todd) Spencer from Georgia Tech has been talking to me and telling me how much he likes the way I play the game and how talented he feels I am. He says I am the type of player that will fit perfectly in Georgia Tech's defensive scheme."

I know Iowa State has recruited you for the offensive line. Is the fact that Georgia Tech wanting you as a defensive end the main thing that has you thinking about changing to the Yellow Jackets?

"No not at all. In fact, Iowa State decided to move me to the defensive side but that isn't the reason. I am thinking about changing because of the combination of the academic program and football program combined at Georgia Tech. Plus, Coach Spencer is a great guy and I really like him as a coach. He has been real up front with me and honest about what is in front of me. Plus, I know Georgia Tech is losing two great ends in Darrell Robertson and Adamm Oliver and I can fit in real quick."

Is there anything else that is making you look hard at Georgia Tech?

"Yes sir, I want to major in business management and I know that Georgia Tech has one of the best business schools in the country. That's a big plus when you combine it with their football program."

Have you set up an official visit to Georgia Tech?

"Yes sir, I will be visiting Georgia Tech this upcoming weekend. I leave early Friday morning and will come home Sunday afternoon or early evening."
