One of the state’s top two uncommitted college football prospects did not make his official visit to UGA on Monday.
Dalvin Tomlinson, a AJC Super 11 defensive lineman from Henry County High School, was scheduled to make a recruiting trip to UGA on Monday.
“Dalvin just texted me, he didn’t go to Georgia today,” Henry County coach Mike Rozier said. “He didn’t say why. I’m trying to call Dalvin and [UGA assistant Bryan McClendon] right now to see what’s going on. I will let you know as soon as I find out.”
We didn’t hear back from Rozier or Tolimlinson by late Monday night. We don’t know if Tomlinson will reschedule the UGA visit or cancel it altogether.
We do know Tomlinson is focused heavily on trying to win his third straight wrestling championship, and that may play a factor in this, too.
For such a high-profile prospect, Tomlinson has kept an extremely low profile. That’s not just in recent weeks, but through the entire recruiting process. That’s not a good or bad thing, just unique.
It could be good news for Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets and Alabama have been rumored to be the longtime frontrunners for the 6-foot-3, 270-pounder. And Rozier said he hasn’t had any recent contact from Alabama, which already has 27 commitments.
The state’s other top uncommitted prospect is Josh Harvey-Clemons, an AJC Super 11 LB from Lowndes High School. His grandfather has predicted a “photo finish” between UGA and Florida on signing day.
Back to Dalvin: There could always be a mystery school? If you’ve got your “Dalvin Tomlinson theory” or prediction, please post it below.
