Spring Valley linebacker Channing Tindall tried to limit his attention on recruiting during the season as his Vikings advanced deep into the playoffs. But the season ended Friday night with the loss at Fort Dorchester. Now, the Shrine Bowler and US Army All-American is ready to move into the final phase of his recruiting.
This Saturday, Tindall plans to take an unofficial visit to Auburn. He’s being recruited by the Tigers’ linebacker coach Travis Williams, a former Spring Valley star who went on to a standout career at Auburn.
Tindall has not yet scheduled his official visits but Georgia and Florida are definite for visits. An official visit to South Carolina, according to his stepfather, is not a definite because of its proximity and the ease with which they can drive over anytime for a visit.
Tindall will not be an early signee but would like to make his commitment in December if possible.
Never miss a local story.
“He has an idea of a school he likes the most,” said Tindall’s stepdad Edward Dimes. “He still wants to check more criteria that he wants to see on these visits.”
Tindall has taken three unofficial visits to USC this season and also took one to Georgia.
▪ Alpharetta, Ga. defensive back Jaycee Horn remains committed to Tennessee but did not visit Knoxville last weekend as he thought he might do. This weekend, he plans to go either to USC for the Clemson game or to Auburn for the Alabama game. This season, Horn has taken unofficial visits for games to Clemson, USC, Tennessee, Auburn, Alabama, Ole Miss and Georgia. South Carolina and Alabama will be two of his official visits. He is not signing until February.
▪ Former Wren standout Trey McGowens, now at Hargrave Prep in Virginia, landed an offer from Tennessee on Monday. McGowens will take unofficial visits to Wake Forest on Friday and South Carolina on Saturday. He has taken an official visit to Clemson.
