Tennessee is making a hard push to sway Georgia Tech’s top football commitment.
The Volunteers stopped by Central Gwinnett High School on Friday to offer a football scholarship to defensive end Francis Kallon, who committed to Georgia Tech earlier this summer.
The 6-foot-6, 240-pound Kallon is in his first year of playing football after moving from London, England.
However, Sir Francis has had a dominating start to senior season at Central Gwinnett, which plays in the state’s largest classification. Through two games, Kallon has 19 total tackles, 6 tackles for losses, 2 sacks, 2 fumble recoveries and a blocked punt.
Central Gwinnett plays South Gwinnett at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Georgia Dome.
Alabama, UGA, Auburn, South Carolina are among the numerous other schools that have shown heavy interest recently in Kallon.
Sir Francis has said repeatedly that he remains committed to Georgia Tech.
UPDATE: Alabama was at Central Gwinnett’s practice on Friday evening and is considering offering Kallon.
What do I think? No real surprise here. Like we’ve said before and will say again, Kallon has an excellent chance of finishing his one and only year of high school football as one of Georgia’s top 5 overall college football prospects. He’s a 5-star recruit in every area but experience. And just like with all elite recruits who are committed, other schools will continue to recruit them until National Signing Day. Tennessee is the first of several more offers that will coming Kallon’s way.
