Georgia Tech felt like home to Donley

D.J. Donley knew exactly where he wanted to go to college, so why put it off? The four-star wide receiver from Charlton County High School in Folkston, Ga., always had a feeling he would end up at Georgia Tech, especially after his visit to a one-day camp in June.

"Ever since the camp I pretty much knew I would probably go to Georgia Tech," Donley said. "My mom and I wanted to make sure it was the right decision before I made it, but I pretty much knew since the camp.

"I just felt more comfortable around the coaches and around the players. I felt more at home. At some campuses I went to I felt out of place, but not at Georgia Tech. I feel like it's the best situation as far as location.
