It didn't take long for Dublin center Nick McRae to pick up his first offer.  He received the good news in a text message from Georgia Tech recruiting coordinator Giff Smith.

"Georgia Tech sent me a text saying they sent my official offer in the mail," said McRae. "It really means a lot because it makes my mom real happy. It makes the whole family proud of me. My family has had some athletes, but I think I'll be the first to go to a big D-I school."

McRae recently visited Georgia Tech on their Junior Day.

"I really enjoyed the visit," McRae said. "I liked it a lot. We actually got to sit down with Coach Chan Gailey.  The prospects went back with their position coaches and talked with them while Coach Gailey stayed and talked to the players individually. We got to ask Coach Gailey any questions that we wanted to."

McRae is still wide open, but this offer puts Georgia Tech near the top of his list with more visits to come.

"This puts Georgia Tech up there real high," said McRae. "I know it's still early, but since they were the first to offer, it puts them up there pretty high. They are right up the road from Dublin. I got a lot of family that lives up there, so it's almost like the perfect place."

"I really can't name any favorites right now. I'm going to try and see as many places as I can and try to enjoy the recruiting process."

"I was supposed to go to Alabama's junior day last weekend, but I couldn't make it. Coach Kirby Smart from Alabama seems to be pretty interested. North Carolina State signed one of our players this year (Thomas Barnes). Georgia is another school that's showing a lot of interest right now."

Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina State, Vanderbilt and South Carolina are just some of the schools showing interest in the 6-foot-3, 285 pounder.  Check back with for more updates on Dublin center prospect Nick McRae.
