Nick McRae of Dublin, Ga. was one of several standout offensive line prospect held at Georgia Tech on Saturday for the Scout.com Camp. He took advantage of his time on campus to take care of a little business.

"I committed to Georgia Tech yesterday," said Nick McRae of Dublin High School in middle Georgia.

"I want to go to school to be an electrical engineer and that's the best school for it. Their football team is getting better and better every year; they almost won the ACC last year. That's a good situation to be in: a good school and a team on the rise."

Chan Gailey and his staff led the Jackets to the ACC Championship game last year, and their actions on the field got McRae's attention, but their actions off the field have been just as important to McRae.

"The coaching staff is real down to earth. I've also got to talk to a lot of current players about them. They told me that when the coaches tell you something, they won't lie to you or try and trick you or anything, they're down to earth and good people. A lot of my family is moving up to Atlanta also, so that's another reason to commit to Georgia Tech."

McRae measured 6-3.5 and 283 pounds at the Kennedy/CES Combine held in February, and he said he is at 6-4 and 290 right now. He was also a standout at the Scout Camp yesterday displaying good agility.

"Tech is recruiting me at center or guard. I learned a lot yesterday and a lot of stuff I still need to work on. I had fun at the Scout Camp. At the end there, the cramps started getting to me a little bit. I started getting cramps in my calf. I had to stop on the side of the road and get them out (laughs)."

McRae helped lead his Dublin team to a State Championship last year, and the big offensive lineman has a bright future ahead of him.
