"I didn't value this place the way I should have when I was here," Johnson says over his phone Thursday on the way to the day's workout. "First, I didn't understand the magnitude of the school. I'm at the Georgia Institute of Technology. People come to school here from all over the world. I'm in class with people from Asia, Europe, Australia. I'm from Selma, Alabama. To come in contact with all that, that's something special."
Great read and article full of quotes that should be tweeted to all of Tech's current players and future recruits. This is part of the brand of Tech that has to be marketed everywhere on the blogs, facebook pages, and every other social media/internet outlet.
"A compass, I learnt when I was surveying, it'll... it'll point you True North from where you're standing, but it's got no advice about the swamps and deserts and chasms that you'll encounter along the way. If in pursuit of your destination, you plunge ahead, heedless of obstacles, and achieve nothing more than to sink in a swamp... What's the use of knowing True North?"

Thanks for a great article. More kids need to hear this type of thing from a player in the NFL who is making tons of money. Regardless of which school he went to.
What a class act...
How cool would it be to see him suit up for the Atlanta Falcons?????????????
In the past GT football has often been JUST GOOD ENOUGH TO BREAK YOUR HEART!
I believe we are on the way to getting where we all want to be - Win Championships, and be more competitive with UGa and Bowl Games.
QB's looking up, WR's coming along(?), Welcome CTR, CMP and new AD, We have some good recruiters with a good class coming, Stamps back to ST's, all 3 phases should be better this year than last. We have team speed to match anyone we play.
What's not to like?
If he resigns with the Bungles, I hope we go grab Daryl Smith and stick him at MLB. He'd be a great vet for us, and would be a HUGE upgrade from the dreck that is Dent and Nicholas.
You read this kind of story, right next to "Olgetree arrested..." and it makes you proud to be a Tech alum/fan.
It would be great to have guys like Michael Johnson recruiting for our program. This is exactly the narrative that sells the school.
