After a breakout junior season at Columbia (S.C.) Spring Valley, linebacker Channing Tindall is becoming one of the most sought-after in-state prospects in the 2018 class.
South Carolina served his first offer last October, and he received his most recent offer from Georgia on Feb. 11. Auburn, Colorado State and Wake Forest are among the other schools on his offer sheet.
Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables has expressed interest to Tindall after seeing his film, and the 6-foot-2, 205-pounder visited Clemson for the Syracuse game last season.
The Clemson Insider caught up with Tindall, who said he has heard from Clemson lately.
“I have spoken to and had a visit from Coach (Brandon) Streeter during the postseason,” he said. “I was invited to come out to Junior Day but I have another commitment that day. I plan to make it out to a spring practice.”
Tindall, who was named the defensive player of the year in his 5A region, will be busy in the coming weeks.
“I have been to South Carolina and plan to attend Junior Day the on the 25th also,” Tindall said. “I have been to Junior Days at Auburn, Wake Forest and UGA. I have Junior Days coming up at Duke, N.C. State and Tennessee. I was also invited to the University of Florida and will visit there soon as well.”
South Carolina, considered an early favorite in his recruitment, is one of the schools recruiting him the hardest.
“I am hearing lots from South Carolina, Auburn and Wake Forest right now,” Tindall said. “I will not be making a decision until the end of my senior season.”
Last season was Tindall’s first playing inside linebacker after making the transition from defensive end.
