New, 27 comments

Over the past month I've interviewed a few of the most recent signing class, and wanted to share with you what they shared with me. Today's interview is with OL Trey Klock.

Hey Trey, is now a good time?

Yeah, I just finished my basketball game so now is good.

How'd you do? I assume you play PF or C?

Yup, I play forward. We won by about 16 -- first playoff game Friday!

Awesome, good luck! Were there any other schools recruiting you hard, and why Georgia Tech over them?

I had a few other offers and some of them continued to recruit me after I committed to Georgia Tech, but I didn't return their calls or take any visits. I love everything about Georgia Tech and I committed just a few days after my first visit. The combination of academics and the chance to play major college football in the south was something I couldn't pass up. The distance from home was my only concern but my parents and brother support my decision and will visit me as much as possible.

Recent grad myself, I can tell you that you won't regret it. I know that you guys have gotten to know each other pretty well as a class. Is there anyone you particularly like or are looking to room with?

We've been really close as a class. We talk all the time on Twitter and through texts. I think that's a special thing to have. I'm close with a lot of guys but so far Andrew Marshall and I have gotten along really well. I'll room with him for sure.

Do you know where you'll play yet? I know there was talk of OL, DL, and TE/receiver.

I'll start out at OL, and possibly move to TE.

Any plans on what you want to study?

Definitely looking to study business. I already have an internship in my senior and can't wait to find one in Atlanta!

Anything you want the fans to know about you?

Just that I come from a football family. My dad and three uncles all played college football, and one uncle played at Lafayette before spending a year with the Eagles. My dad is also my high school coach, and my brother was on the team too. Otherwise, just that I'm ready to work and compete!

Thanks to Trey for taking the time out to talk with From the Rumble Seat! We can't wait to have him on campus and are excited to have him on the team.
