T.J. Stripling says not visiting Tech, but maybe Tennessee

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.

Educate me, what difference does it make. isnt he unable to explore his options after all this is his college career. How does a visit make him him wishy washy?

I don’t blame him for visiting UT. He is hoping that he can have a bit of fun with one of those hostesses before he signs with UGA!

45-19 must taste really bad right now. Mark Richt=Phil Fulmer version two.

Nice job getting rejected by an ACC DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR…The ACC that you idiot UGA fans claim is such a miserable conference just rejected you.

He probably heard about the TN hostesses rubbing their breasts on those recruits and decided it would be fun to visit. Who can blame him?

Haven’t heard anything out of the parents of these “hostesses”. I am surprised the dads aren’t outraged that their daughters are being paraded around like pieces of tail to lure prospects in. Real classy UT. It’s not like these guys don’t know what’s waitin’ for them when they get there anyway…Big time SEC football player = Myriad A$$ for you….

Georgia beat the best team in the ACC this year, but Kiffin & Tenn are gonna get beat bad in the dome. So shut up with the Bud Foster talk.

He needs to take his time and make the decision that is correct for him.
Picking what college to attend is a big deal. I know it was for me. And base the decision on the college not the coaches. The coaches may be gone in a year or so. The college will stay there.

He’s heard about how Lacey just can’t do enough for her “relationship” recruits! She just worships at their feet. I’m sure he wants to see her kneepads, the ones like Monica’s. After all, she’s gone to all that trouble to have them embroidered with the flourescent Big Arnge UT logo! When she demonstrates her Arnge Pride, she rarely wears anything else.

We didn’t want Bud Foster, we didn’t offer Bud Foster, he’s a 2 star and belongs in the acc with all the girls. If we had wanted him he’d be at GEORGIA today. Anyone that says we did is a liar!

Sounds like T.J. was offended by being accused of wishing to visit the Joke by Coke, LOL!!! Hilarious!!!!!

I guess all the trashy Yech fans will go back to calling him a thug and gangster, while their praises of “student athlete” bs will go back to silence.

You morons are absolutely hysterical!!!!

Volman wants to embellish the ACC’s supposed toughness. He calls Bulldogs crazy for disparaging that basketball conference, because he remembers how Clemson whupped up on the Big Arnge in that bowl game a year a couple of years ago. Yeh, that one; the one after Kansas State whupped up on the Arnge in that other bowl game.

Hey, “EW”…You’re an idiot. There have been quotes about from the parents, but it doesn’t favor Tennessee so you won’t see it in the AJC (thanks Schultz for reporting only the quotes you want to report). Please do some more research before you keep spewing your drivel on here.

She was telling everyone during her shift that you were hung like a field mouse and thats why you and Lame Kitten get along so well.I can’t wait for Tenn. to get put on probation by the NCAA…then you’ll have to spend most of your Saturday afternoons in the fall at Dollywood…could be worse though….nah…thats bad enough…Old Rocky Top going down and all you hillbillies won’t know what to do with yourselves.Beware of the future..its going to be a bitch!

If he wants a scholarship from UT, he needs to get it now. Next year, they will be reduced! Recruiting violations with Bryce Brown, hostesses, and now Rubio. At least 3 separate instances in less than a year, Kiffin is going for some sort of speed record. Coach to get a school on probation for “lack of institutional control” in the shortest amount of time – Lane “the runaway train” Kiffin.

Do us all a favor and go back to your hillbilly home in Tennessee. You are fortunate to be able to live in a great state like Georgia. If you don’t like all of the UGA coverage then go back to Dollywood where they spin everything to defend and promote UT.

Volman, have you ever made a sincere and truthful statement on any of the blogs i see you own…you have about as much class as Kiffin…You bash everyone you can and bring nothing of any significance to the tabel…Oh i know “45-19″..enjoy it while you can, but i hope we here from you when your team is on probation…its just a matter of time…Coach Fulmer was a class act, shame on your university to put up with the nonsense that is going on now, and yes you may “woo” a few recruits, but will it all be worth it,,,its just a matter of time…

I don’t think PJ at Tech would take someone who can’t commit. Tech would not take him unless he bought into the Tech Program. He might fit in at UGA though, uneducated, undiciplined, bunch of thugs playing football.

Volman, I know a sister (sistuh) of yorn when I see one. Lacy’s got a pretty mouth, don’t she? Them teeth’s is pricey. I hear she used to be fast, running through them hills to stay one step ahead of you and her other brothers! Now she’s just fast and running’s got nothing to do with it. Kneeling? yup. Running? naw.
