One of the coaches that stopped by to see the 6'5"-255 Tuitt was Georgia Tech defensive line coach Andy McCollum. "Coach McCollum came by to see my coaches Monday," said Tuitt. "He told them they had me at the top of their list and that's why he wanted to stop by my school first." McCollum and Tuitt have built a good relationship from previous visits that Tuitt has made to Georgia Tech.

While the evaluating of Tuitt may have already taken place, McCollum made Tech's intentions known. "He made it clear to them that Georgia Tech is very interested in me."

Georgia will be the next school scheduled to visit Stephon. With the visits starting, Tuitt is not ready yet to name a leader. Stephon has a reported thirteen offers. Tuitt will use his summer visits to help decide on who that leader will be. He has plans to make a decision prior to the start of his senior season. Top Stories
