Jeoffrey Pagan had a chance to see the Georgia Tech campus, facilities and meet all the coaches on Saturday. "It was great," said Pagan. "The Tech coaches are very cool." In addition to meeting the coaching staff Pagan got to spend some time with Coach Paul Johnson and came away thinking that he would be a coach he'd like to play for.

The coaching staff let Pagan know that they'd like to have him at Tech and liked his skills on the defensive side of the ball. "Coach (Al) Groh told me that he would change me to a stand up outside linebacker." Jeoffrey also had a chance to spend some time with Andy McCollum, his recruiting coach.

Jeoffrey took to the idea of moving to outside linebacker from his current defensive end position if he were to play in Groh's 3-4 defense. "I can see myself playing that position."

The trip to Georgia Tech was very beneficial for Pagan. He got a lot done and liked the time he spent learning about Tech meeting the coaches. "Tech is a school that has my interest," said Pagan.

Jeoffrey will be busy visiting other schools in the coming weekends. He'll be visiting Clemson on the 20th. That is the only scheduled trip he has planned thus far. He plans on making as many Tech practices as possible.

As he continues with the recruiting process, Pagan will be looking for a school where he can feel comfortable and can feel at home. Distance will not be a factor. A school with a good business management program will be a plus. "I plan on majoring in business management so the school will have to have that program for me to consider them." All-in-all the trip to Atlanta was a good one for Jeoffrey Pagan.
