Vad Lee Enjoys Introduction to Triple Option

Hillside High's Vad Lee and some of his teammates made the trip to Atlanta to take part in Georgia Tech's skills camp and get a better look at the campus. He enjoyed his time learning the offense and enjoyed talking with the GT coaches. He looks to make a decision before his senior season.

"The camp was pretty good. It was my first time learning the triple option offense," quarterback prospect Vad Lee said. "It was new to me compared to the pro style offense my high school runs. It was a new experience for me. It was a lot of fun." Lee said he got a lot of one-on-one work with Georgia Tech quarterback coach Brian Bohannon. "He taught me some foot drills I can use. It was a lot of fun," Lee said. Coach Bohannon would be Lee's position coach should he choose to commit to Georgia Tech later this summer. Lee says that he and Bohannon have a great relationship and keep in touch regularly. He also talks to Coach Andy McCollum, his recruiting coach for GT, quite a bit.

The Georgia Tech offense may be quite different for Lee, but it doesn't scare him away at the thought of playing quarterback for the Yellow Jackets. "It's a pretty dynamic offense that I can do well in," he said. "It was just as I expected it would be today. I did pretty good learning it for my first day." After participating in the camp, Lee and his teammates got to take a tour around the campus. Vad also got to sit down with head coach Paul Johnson after the tour and talk to him a bit. "We talked about Georgia Tech football and where I stood and everything," Lee said. "Overall, it was a very fun visit."

Where Lee stands with Georgia Tech seems to be a really strong relationship with excitement at the possibilities. Where he's at in his recruitment right now is that he still has some visits and camps to attend. Lee said that he has about five more schools to go to this month after Georgia Tech being his first visit. "I'm going to NC State this Sunday and then to North Carolina in a couple weeks," he said. "I'm also going to Duke's quarterback college with Coach Cutcliffe. I'm really looking forward to that and the things I can learn there. Then in a little over two weeks, I'm going to South Florida. It's a busy schedule this month." Wake Forest may be getting a visit from Lee as well.

Vad says that he still has no clear favorite right now but he is really only looking at six schools right now. "I've got a couple favorites. Georgia Tech is definitely one and they are high on my list; also, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Wake Forest, South Florida, and Duke. Those are the main schools I'm interested in. They are all high on me, too."

A decision before his senior season some time this summer remains the case for Lee. It may even be after this month when he's had a better look at all the schools. "I should know after all the camps what I'm going to do." Top Stories
