Ryan Thomas - Profile
How did you like your time at Junior Day?
Did you leave with any impressions?
"Yes sir. I think Georgia Tech is one of the top schools in the country when you combine their academics with their football."
How much time was spent on discussing academics this trip?
"They did a pretty thorough job and took 20-30 minutes on that topic."
Did you get to meet the coaches?
"I spent some time with Coach (Mike) Sewak and Coach (Todd) Spencer."
How are your grades?
"I have a 4.02 GPA."
Do you have any offers?
How will you go about deciding your college choice?
"My dad will help me. I'd like to stay in the Southeast with a BCS (Conference) School. The North doesn't interest me very much."
You live in Gainesville and, at least at one time, seemed to favor the (Florida) Gators. That resulted in a strange nickname, didn't it?
"Yes sir. When I was a freshman, I guess I used wear a lot of Gators stuff (blue and orange), so one of my coaches (who didn't know my name), just called me, "Blue." And that's stuck."
What's on tap for the summer?
"I'll be at the Georgia Tech football camp again."
What's the team outlook for this coming Fall?
"We should be pretty good; I think we have 18 starters coming back after a rebuilding season."
