Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson offered a little more light into his decision regarding Vad Lee on Wednesday’s ACC coaches teleconference. Asked about how Lee, the true freshman quarterback from Durham, N.C., was doing, Johnson said he is “probably well ahead of where we thought he might be.”
He went on to say that coaches hadn’t made a decision on whether to play him this year, which, if you’re into parsing, is a little different than what he had said on his radio show Tuesday night, when he said he knew “what’s in my mind right now” about the decision to play or redshirt Lee. (Unless what was in his mind was one of those question mark bubbles.)
“He’s certainly on our travel squad and will dress,” Johnson said Wednesday. “We’re going to have to make that decision here pretty quickly. But he’s done great. We’re really excited about Vad.”
If indeed a decision has yet to be made, one could reasonably conclude that Lee wouldn’t play Thursday night against Western Carolina in order to protect his redshirt.
