Dublin's McRae Looking Forward to GT Visit

Nick McRae, a talented center from Dublin High, will take a trip to Georgia Tech on Jan. 11 on a visit that will likely play a large role in helping him make a big decision about his future.

Nick McRae should know a lot more about his collegiate future after the weekend of Jan 11.

The three-star center from Dublin High is set to take an official that weekend to the school he committed to last May: Georgia Tech. McRae has been firm in his commitment since giving a pledge to the Yellow Jackets but admitted that other schools haven't ceased to let up on his recruitment.

And his visit to the Tech campus may go a long way in helping him decide if he should listen to those other schools.

"Yes there are other schools recruiting me," he said when questioned about who has maintained interest in his services. "They are North Carolina State, Maryland, North Carolina and Central Florida. I don't know if I will take a visit yet but I guess I'll wait and see what happens at my official to Georgia Tech."

McRae also admitted that Georgia Tech's recent decision to fire former head coach Chan Gailey almost made the decision to change his mind that much easier.

"Yes, I did consider de-committing but right now I'm still committed," McRae said. "But I'm keeping an open mind about other schools by listening to what they have to offer to compare them to Georgia Tech."

With an athletic 6-foot-3 ½ and 290-pound build, it's no wonder that certain teams have remained firm in their commitment to recruit the Dublin High star.

And if he doesn't change his mind, he appears to be the ideal fit for new head coach Paul Johnson's scheme in Atlanta. McRae recently got to meet the former Navy coach on an in-home visit last month.

"I liked Coach Johnson. He seemed like he was real excited about me coming to Georgia Tech and what's going to happen next season," McRae said. "I knew a little about him from one of my coaches who played for him when he was at Georgia Southern and he said that he was a good coach."

So, what will McRae decide to do? Stay tuned to GAVSV.com after his visit to the Yellow Jackets' campus to find out.
