Plenty of Interest for Dublin OL

Dublin, Ga. - Dublin offensive lineman Nick McRae has just taken in his first junior day and he's looking at making several more trips.

On Saturday, February 3rd, Nick McRae was one of 44 High School prospects at Georgia Tech for their annual junior day event. 

"I went to the Georgia Tech junior day and I had a lot of fun," said McRae. "It was real nice up there.  First, we met all the coaches.  Then we met some of the Georgia Tech players like Demaryius Thomas who used to play for West Laurens."

"The coaches made me feel real comfortable up there.  Me and my Mom really enjoyed it.  We toured some of the facilities like the weight room.  We looked at some of the campus and we got to see the stadium.  We got to walk on the field and stuff.  Then we got to watch the Georgia Tech and Clemson basketball game."

McRae says that he enjoyed his trip to Atlanta and he listed the Yellow Jackets as his leader.

"Well, I've only seen like three schools, but Georgia Tech was real good to me," McRae said.  "My Mom really liked Georgia Tech and I really liked them too.  I would have to say Georgia Tech is my leader right now,"

So far, McRae says he's receiving the most mail from Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Georgia, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, Auburn, Duke, and Alabama.  What is the 6-foot-3, 285 pound standout looking for in a school?

"First of all, I've got to look at their academics," he said. "That's real important to me.  Then the football program itself and how the coaches interact with the players is very important."

McRae is a good student and carries a 3.5 GPA.   He has been invited to attend two more junior days over the next few weeks.

 "On February 17th, I'll be going to Georgia's junior day and on March 3rd, I'm suppose to go to South Carolina's junior day," McRae said.
