Georgia commitment T.J. Stripling refuted a report by JacketsOnline.com that he’s visiting Georgia Tech this weekend.
The 6-foot-6, 220-pound defensive end from Southwest DeKalb confirmed that in a text to me a little while ago. But he’s in school today and couldn’t talk. However, he spoke with UGASports.com’s Kipp Adams at some point today. Ironically, UGASports and JacketsOnline are sister sites, so it’s unusual to see one refute the other.
Said Stripling to ugasports: “That is not true. They said the same about Mike Thornton, too. I’m playing in the DeKalb County All-Star game this weekend.”
More interesting to me was Stripling’s comment that he’s thinking about possibly making an official visit to Tennessee. But, he said, he’s 95 percent committed to the Bulldogs. Better than 94 percent, I guess.
Anyway, T.J. is supposed to call me back later so I’ll get into all that with him.
