With the school year over, football players of all ages are now keeping busy by crisscrossing the country attending camps. For Geoff Collins and his coaching staff, this means the recruiting process continues to chug along.
For most of June, Georgia Tech and other colleges will be hosting their summer camps. Coach Collins’ showcase camp is just one of the many to have recently taken place.
Some of the attendees were extended an invitation from Collins or one of his assistants. Others paid $50 to be a part of the group of nearly 400 young men ranging in age from sixth graders through rising seniors.
All of them participated in several drills and received expert coaching. And that meant an opportunity to get the attention of the coaches from Tech and the other colleges that were in attendance.
Some of the attendees walked away with a scholarship offer. Others got an invitation back to the campus. Trey Bedosky is an example from the latter group. The 6’6” offensive lineman from Landmark Christian High School in Fairburn, Ga. was extended an invitation to return to Tech next week to visit Collins. Initially, he hadn’t received much attention. After his performance at this past week’s camp, Tech now has him on their radar. Perhaps an offer will be next? Let’s see.
The Georgia Tech women’s basketball program has added three members to its staff. Head coach Nell Fortner announced the hiring of Sydney Durrah, Ashlee Villarreal and Cortnee Walton.
Durrah was named Director of Video. Her background and experience will be key to Tech’s efforts on many fronts. Villarreal will serve as the Director of Basketball Operations. Fortner described her as the perfect fit for this crucial role. Walton will be responsible for recruiting operations. According to Fortner, Walton’s experience as a student-athlete and knowledge of the recruiting process will be key to attracting new talent to Tech.
