Stephon Tuitt Gets To Know The GT Players

Monroe Area defensive lineman Stephon Tuitt made the short trip to Atlanta Friday night to visit Georgia Tech. Tuitt spent Friday night and Saturday getting to know the Georgia Tech players.

Stephon Tuitt has been on Georgia Tech's campus many times. He took this trip to get to know the players better. "I got there on Friday night and spent time with Denzel McCoy and Charles Perkins," said Tuitt. "I also met some of the other players and got to know them."

Stephon felt that this trip was different than the others he's taken to Georgia Tech. "They have all been great but this one stood out more due to the fact that I got to know the players." Tuitt got to see Tech from a player's perspective. "I saw everything and got to hear what they had to say so it was probably the best trip so far."

Tuitt has built a friendship with McCoy and with his help he got to know the players better. "I really enjoyed seeing how the players and students interact," said Tuitt. "It showed me a different side of Georgia Tech that you sometimes don't get to see when you go on visits." The players showed Tuitt the facilities, the entire campus, and how they prepare for the upcoming season. "All in all it was a tremendous trip for me."

Tuitt is not ready to talk about favorites. "I want to take all five of my official visits before I make a decision and I know that Georgia Tech will be one of those five." Tuitt is not sure who will get the other four visits. "I will not be making a decision on a school before taking my visits."

Despite not naming any favorites, Tuitt did say that the schools he's looking at are Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, Miami, Tennessee, and Auburn. "I have family down in Miami and they are starting to recruit me pretty hard as are Notre Dame," said Stephon. "Still, Georgia Tech is recruiting me the hardest."

The trip to Georgia Tech will not be his last for the summer. "I know in two weeks I will be making another trip to Georgia Tech to see all the coaches." Tuitt had a chance to talk to Coach Buzz Preston on this trip as well as Coach Andy McCollum. Tuitt will be looking to get to know the coaches better on his next trip. He'll also be setting up trips to Auburn, Clemson, and Tennessee before he begins his senior season. Top Stories
