S.C. OLB Channing Tindall enjoys Georgia visit

Columbia (S.C.) Spring Valley outside linebacker Channing Tindall visited Georgia last weekend and left Athens with a scholarship offer.

Channing Tindall made his way to Georgia this past weekend and the trip was a success.

"The Georgia visit was amazing," said the 6-foot-2, 206-pound Tindall. "It was really organized and I was able to get to know everybody.

"They covered strength and conditioning, academics and talked about the strong alumni base at Georgia. We were also able to see some of the campus and tour the dorms."

What did he enjoy most?

"My favorite part was probably the time I spent with (inside linebackers) coach (Glenn) Schumann," Tindall said. "He showed us the correct way to do simple things to help become better players. He's a very disciplined guy and communicates well. He also expects a lot of his players.

"Coach Schumann actually offered me. He told me they're really looking at linebackers in this recruiting class and they liked my versatility. He also said I'd be perfect for their program."

Even before receiving the offer, Tindall was familiar with Georgia.

"Georgia is a school I've been interested in and my father is from there, so I know a little bit about them," Tindall said. "I'm excited to continue to develop a relationship with the coaches and I'll probably go back and visit again in the summer."

Before leaving, he spend some time with head coach Kirby Smart.

"It was great talking with him and it meant a lot to me," Tindall said. "He's doing a great job and had a lot of success previously as a defensive coordinator.

"He told me I'm a dynamic player and also emphasized that they need linebackers. He also said I'm a top priority recruit at the position and they really want me."

As for upcoming visits, Tindall will head to Duke and NC State this weekend.
