LB Channing Tindall of Spring Valley led a dominating second half performance by his defense Thursday night in a win over Sumter that pushed the Vikings to 4-0. After the game Tindall praised his teammates for their efforts, a typical deflection of attention by Tindall. But he did talk for a few minutes about his recruiting which he is still planning to wrap up later this month. Tindall is on top of the world both as a top recruit and as a teammate on an undefeated team.
“I feel wonderful man. It’s my senior year, got underclassmen doing what they are supposed to do, got our juniors what they are supposed to do. We are really brothers,” Tindall excitedly said after the game. “We’ve been going thru this, running up these stadium seats almost every single week. Being in the weight room. Hitting each other. I’m just proud. I just really love these boys. We always come together.”
Tindall went to the USC-NC State game last week and is not going anywhere this weekend because of a funeral he plans to attend. He said he will go to the USC-Kentucky game in Columbia next weekend. Tindall said he plans to take one or two official visits this month without naming the schools.
USC head coach Will Muschamp scouted Tindall in person last week and coaches from Georgia and Auburn were on hand Thursday night. Tindall said that’s something he tries not to pay attention to.
“I take it personally,” he said. “When they’re not here, they’re going to watch it on film. We they are here they are going to watch it on film. I’ve got to just focus on the game. So, I just act like they’re not there and continue to lead my team and try to win the game.”
Tindall said he’s focused the most on two schools which will get his official visits, and he said he will reveal those schools September 10th. Tindall has had a short list of USC, Georgia, Florida and Florida State.
