Dalvin Tomlinson Setting Up Summer Visits

Defensive end Dalvin Tomlinson, a 2012 recruit from McDonough, Ga., had a couple of visitors on Wednesday at school. Georgia Tech coaches Joe Speed and Brian Bohannon dropped by Henry County High School to catch up with Tomlinson, who has an offer from the Yellow Jackets.

"The visit went well," Tomlinson said. "They talked to my coach about a lot of topics, including academics."

Speed and Bohannon let the Henry County coaches know that they felt Dalvin Tomlinson would be a great contributor to the defense at Georgia Tech. They also focused on the majors available at Tech for Tomlinson.

"They have both of the possible majors I want to pursue – business and engineering – so that's definitely a plus," Tomlinson said.

The coaches talked defense and went over a lot of the things they had previously told Tomlinson, but the rising senior seemed happy that they talked to his coach about the basics.

As for the summer, Tomlinson plans to make a major dent in the list of schools that have offered him by visiting the campuses that he hasn't seen so far. While he has visited Georgia Tech already and he seems to have a good feel for what he thinks about the football program, Tomlinson isn't listing any favorites so far in the process.

But even though he has no top schools list, Tomlinson said the Yellow Jackets are definitely in the top few schools so far, citing the academics as the most important factor in ranking them so high.

"I have a lot of visits left this summer, because most of the schools offered this spring," Tomlinson said. That hasn't left much time to visit the campuses yet, but this summer will be filled with camps and visits as the weather warms up.

Tomlinson said he plans to warm up to the thought of making a final decision sometime around Signing Day next February, so don't expect a decision to be made any time soon.
