One Georgia athlete has seen his stock sky rocket in the last few days.
After taking an official visit to Middle Tennessee last week, Josh Stanford of Lithonia MLK High School took an official visit to Arkansas State this weekend and left Jonesboro more impressed than he expected.
Stanford, a 6-foot-1, 170-pound athlete, also picked an offer from Virginia Tech on Friday and will visit the Hokies next week before taking his final visit to Texas Christian University the following week.
The talented wide out was impressed with Gus Malzahn and the coaching staff he has assembled in Jonesboro.
"Coach Malzahn is a great coach and he has surrounded himself with great coaches," Stanford told AStateNation.com Sunday morning. "You can tell the whole coaching staff is about purpose and things of substance, they are all good character coaches."
Stanford enjoyed his visit to Arkansas State and admitted it was better than he expected it to be.
"I had a great visit," Stanford said. "I learned a lot about the school that I didn't know already. I didn't realize that they won their conference this past season and was undefeated in conference play."
Stanford described the visit to Jonesboro as very educational.
"The coaches made several presentations on several things," Stanford said. "They showed us about their offensive system, how they would utilize us in it."
Does Stanford have a favorite after his visit to ASU this weekend.
"All the schools are equal right now," Stanford said. "I need to take all of my visits before making a final decision. I did enjoy my visit to Arkansas State."
