According to Jacketsonline.com, he as both been offered a football scholarship and “”If things go well on the visit I will commit to Georgia Tech to play football.”
We’re still researching more information, but in the meantime here’s a post from the Australian website BringInSports.com.au:
Bring It On Sports are happy to announce that Adam Gotsis from Melbourne, Australia, is being recruited by Georgia Tech to play Gridiron. Adam and his parents will be leaving Australia on Thursday the 19th of January on an Official visit to Georgia Tech Campus, which is located in Atlanta. Georgia Tech will be paying for Adam’s Flights as well as his accommodation and Meals. Adam and his parents will meet with the Coaching Staff of Georgia Tech and will also tour the facilities. This is a great opportunity for Adam to Play Gridiron at a High level as well as get a Quality Education and have a potential chance to go to the NFL. Adam represented the Australian National Team at the 2011 IFAF World Cup of American Football. Bring It On Sports Director Paul Manera, a former University Of Hawaii Gridiron Player, was recruited by Georgia Tech Head Coach Paul Johnson to play at Hawaii when he was the Offensive Coordinator at Hawaii in 1988. Both Paul Johnson and Offensive Line Coach Mike Sewak are very impressed with Adams ability and size and they were able to scout Adam’s Highlight film of him playing for Australia as well as some footwork drills and skills that we put him through. This is not only great news for Adam but also for other hopeful Aussies that want to play College and NFL Gridiron in the USA. Georgia Tech has now made a committment to come down to Australia to recruit, and other universities, such as The University Of Hawaii, are already recruiting here; and Oregon State is also showing interest in coming down to Australia. Success breeds success in the last 5 Years; There have been 4 Lineman from Australia who have received full scholarships to play Division 1 College Football. We are confident that Adam Gotsis will be the next….. Signing Day for scholarships is the 1st of February ……….
