Auburn offered a football scholarship on Friday to Georgia Tech’s No. 1 recruit, who will visit the Tigers next week.
Francis Kallon is a 6-foot-6, 260-pound defensive end at Central Gwinnett High School who is playing football for the first time as a senior after moving from London, England. He committed to Georgia Tech last summer but other colleges haven’t given up on recruiting him.
Kallon was offered by Auburn on Friday, according to his coach, and will make an unofficial visit to Auburn next weekend. Kallon’s teammate at Central Gwinnett, junior linebacker Trey Johnson, has committed to Auburn
Georgia Tech will entertain several of the state’s top college prospects for Saturday’s game against Maryland. Lassiter High School safety-linebacker Kene Orjioke and Allatoona running back Miles Jones are scheduled to attend, along with many top-rated juniors – Tri-Cities offensive lineman Shamire Devine, Stephens County running back Chaz Thornton, Norcross running back Alvin Kamara, Tri-Cities offensive guard Jeremi Hall, Northgate cornerback Brandon Facyson, Greater Atlanta Christian running back Kyle Scales and North Cobb running back Quentin James.
Here’s video of AJC Super 11 member Josh Harvey-Clemons of Lowndes High School. The 6-foot-5, 200-pounder will take visits to UGA, Florida, LSU and Louisville. He is projected to play safety or linebacker in college.
