FINAL WORD: Listed officially by Georgia as a defensive lineman, Tripp will likely end up at defensive end. A wealth of talent will likely prevent Tripp from playing this fall, but you never know what injuries could do the shape of the defensive line. Tripp has a body much like current Bulldog Quintin Moses.
