"I went bowling, took pictures, and ate at a bunch of nice places," Stone said.
Stone also spent a lot of time with safeties coach Pierson Prioleau as you might expect with Stone adding this on how his conversations and time went with Prioleau.
"It was great. He's a good guy who knows a lot about the game," Stone said.
Stone also told us that "how nice and supportive the coaching staff is" is what stood out to him during his visit as Tech's staff clearly made a strong impression.
All of this comes as Stone is in the midst of his June official having taken an official to UVA prior with plans to take an official visit to Duke next weekend while also looking to get one scheduled to Wake Forest which could be this weekend. This comes as Stone looks to make a decision before the start of his senior season adding that a key factor in his decision will be his "comfort level with the players and coaches."
