Spring Valley LB Channing Tindall attended The High School Sports Report media day Sunday at USC’s indoor practice facility, a media stop in between recruiting stops. Saturday Tindall was at Georgia and this coming week he will visit Florida Friday and Florida State Saturday. He also was planning to visit with some USC coaches after the media day session.
“The Georgia trip was amazing,” Tindall said. “I got to spend more time with Coach (Glenn) Schumann (ILB). That’s what I really went down there for to learn how I would be if I went there, just working out with him, getting one-on-one attention.”
Tindall has emerged from the recruiting shadows to become one of the most highly regarded linebackers in his class. He competed at The Opening earlier this month and was recognized as the top linebacker there. With his success and attention comes the pressure of being a major recruit and making a major decision as a teenager, something Tindall is taking in stride.
“It can be a little overwhelming sometimes but I understand it is part of recruiting,” Tindall said. “The main thing I’m look for right now is trying to get one on one time with the position coaches, work out with them and see what I can learn from them, and take what I learn and apply it to here. I want to see one or two games this season and see what the players already there have done, how they apply it to the football field and see how successful they are.”
Tindall has been working with a short list of USC, Georgia, Florida and Auburn and is now looking at making his decision in September.
