    He has offers from Florida and Gtech- but tOSU is his 3rd favorite and has been in contact- he hopes to visit tOSU in the next few weeks for an unofficial visit- his cousin went to tOSU- he wants to go to a school with a big city atmosphere

    Tucker is still looking around and may visit Clemson and tOSU. He called his GTech visit 8 out of 10 (not too good when you already committed). He says tOSU has offered.

    He is still committed to GTech but has visits now set up with tOSU, Clemson and South Carolina. No date for the tOSU visit was given.

    He is "95%" sure that he is going to sign with Ga Tech, but he is still going to visit Columbus on the 28th. Despite the fact that we are probably the only other school that will get a visit, we are not 2nd on his list...that would be Spurrier and the Gamecocks.

    There is a difference between getting an offer/committing to a school and subsequently getting admitted into the school. Ohio State's recent history comes to mind (Buckeye fans still want to see Dennis Kennedy in S&G...).

    GT hasn't admitted him, yet, to my best knowledge. However, if they do, I'd agree with you 100%.

    On a related note, I wonder if Notre Dame has ever admitted an athlete with similar credentials. Might come in handy for ND fans too...

    He could get in at tOSU not at GT I don't think. Thats why CT uncommited there.
  14. At some schools they will have the coach and academic counsoulers sit in on the admissions to "make a case" for an athelete. So don't be fooled that every athelete at GT is a 1200 SAT student. It is still harder than hell to get into. But just to make it easy he should just come on up to Columbus.

    If the coaches have extra letters of intent to send out, they might as well send him one too. It's not like we are being limited by the likes of a Richard Washington.

    Is this Diehard at all related to the diehard who morphed into Alan
