Kallon's jacket stays yellow

Georgia Tech commitment Francis Kallon visited Auburn on Saturday, but he still seems strong to the Yellow Jackets.

Auburn offered Francis Kallon less than two weeks ago and the 2012 defensive end decided to visit Auburn on Saturday.

He liked it, but he remains a solid commitment to Georgia Tech.

"I was Auburn and the atmosphere was really live. It was like a sea of orange out there. It was big, really big there," said Kallon.

"Auburn might be too big for me. Georgia Tech is much smaller, but it is lively there too.

"The Auburn coaches were telling me how amazed they were at my film and Auburn was exciting, but my jacket stays yellow. Georgia Tech looks just about right for me."

Kallon has not ruled out taking other visits. The four-star defensive end out of Lawrenceville (GA) Central Gwinnett is contemplating visiting Alabama when they Tennessee next weekend.
