Attending Georgia Tech's Junior Day wasn't anything new to Jabari Hunt-Days. His brother, Synjyn Days, is a part of Georgia Tech's signing class of 2010, so he has been there five times already. Nevertheless, he had a great time while on campus Saturday.
"It was really exciting. Juniors will come in, and you feel like you've accomplished something just to be in that position. Everything went well. I met with the coaches, met the new coaches, I met Coach (Al) Groh, the new defensive coordinator. He watched some film with me and said he likes physical players, players with quick feet. He said I look pretty physical and he could tell I love the game of football."
Earlier in his recruitment, teams were looking at Jabari as a fullback because that's where he was playing on his high school team. That has changed now, especially for Georgia Tech.
"For now, they're going to stick with me at linebacker," he said, "just because of my body type (6'2", 225 lb) and speed. They're looking at me for linebacker, for defense; probably at middle linebacker."
Even though Jabari gives a lot of his attention to Georgia Tech in hopes of playing with his older brother again, some other schools are contacting him.
"Miami, Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina State, North Carolina, and Michigan State are contacting me. I have one offer I got my sophomore year from Toledo. I haven't really been getting any offers yet. We're just going to wait for the summer to come and then see how my season opens up next year."
If Georgia Tech were to offer, it would likely be hard for another school to get him away from the Yellow Jackets. But that offer remains to be seen for now. Still, Jabari has a lot to say for Georgia Tech.
"What I like about Tech is I feel like I'm at home and I'm not even a commit yet. I feel like the coaches are very well-opened up to the players. They tell you the straight up truth about what you need to do and how you can get better. It's a great environment people-wise, I love the players there. I just see some kind of sense about God there. That's one of the things in my life that sticks out, I keep God first. I like that about Tech."
On his trip to Georgia Tech's Junior Day, he was actually able to talk with the coaches about getting that offer.
"They're telling me to be patient. They're telling me things to help me and leading me on as far as the offer goes, but they're telling me what I can do to better myself. They know I want to be at the same school as my brother, so they're looking at everything in every aspect and they really want me to be there. I know that, they've told me that."
On February 20th, Jabari will likely take in Alabama's Junior Day. As of right now, he doesn't have any other plans to attend any.
He attended the Scout.com Showcase on Sunday, the day after Georgia Tech's Junior Day. There, he showed his athleticism as he registered a 39-inch vertical jump.
