Abercrombie wants to see stock rise in spring

Atlanta (Ga.) Westlake linebacker Christion Abercrombie discusses which programs are showing interest and could swing by for evaluations in the coming months.

Three-star linebacker Christion Abercrombie, a 6-foot, 215-pound prospect out of Atlanta (Ga.) Westlake, is hoping to see his stock rise over the spring.

Georgia Southern and South Alabama have expressed increased interest in Abercrombie, while Georgia and Tennessee, both of which he’s visited, and Oregon are also intrigued.

“All the schools told me they’d come see me in the spring,” he said.

Oregon is the latest to arrive on the scene. Defensive coordinator Don Pellum reached out and Abercrombie said the relationship is developing.

“He told me he’d try to make it down to Georgia to come out to our spring game or something,” he said. “Or I could come on an unofficial visit.”

Abercrombie mentioned that he wants to get out of the south and that an Oregon offer could change things drastically.

“My interest is high,” he said. “They’d be my number one school if I got the offer.”

Abercrombie, who prides himself on open-field tackling, believes he could thrive in the Oregon defense because he can run. In talking with Pellum, he learned what the veteran coach likes about his game.

“He likes the strength of my tackle and the way I can move,” he said.

Abercrombie isn’t interested in drawing out the recruiting process and hopes to have made a decision by the time his senior season begins. Still, he’s excited for the upcoming evaluation period and the help it could bring to his recruitment.

“It’s going to be kind of crazy when it hits me and the schools come,” he said. “I’ve never been in that situation. So I’ll be excited.”
