George Bento, a junior lineman from Jensen Beach, Fla., visited Georgia Tech on Nov. 19 before Tech’s last ACC game of the season against Virginia

On Thursday, Bento posted on Twitter pictures of his tour of Bobby Dodd Stadium and Tech’s statue of John Heisman. Bento also posted a picture with Tech’s freshman defensive end Tyler Vernon and freshman kicker Shea Underwood.
