Central Gwinnett linebacker Jonathan Massaquoi recently spoke to GAVSV.com about his decision to commit to the Men of Troy.
"I chose Troy because they took a risk in me and because they have a very good development program," said Massaquoi. " They won the Bowl game last year and they have their program headed in the right direction. Their head is on straight about what they want to do. They have a lot of big goals and a lot of big plans. I'm just glad to be a part of it."
"I agreed with what they were telling me and I felt like they would be a good program for me. They would be able to develop my skills, enhance my skills and help me become the very best football player I could become. That's one of the main reasons I picked them."
Massaquoi said he plans to enroll at Troy in December. Linebackers Coach Benjy Parker played a big roll in his decision to commit to the Trojans.
"Coach Parker was great," he said. "I really made a connection with him. He's really a cool guy and I definitely plan on getting to know him better. I mean all their coaches were good, but Coach Parker just stood out to me."
Massaquoi registered 87 tackles and 9 sacks as a senior.
"I think I matured a lot this season," Massaquoi said. "I really buckled down and did what I had to do to get to the next level. It was just a matter of figuring out what was most important to me and working very hard to make it happen."
