Atlanta (Ga.) Westlake is always loaded with talent and this year is no exception. The Lions already have two stars that have collected Division I scholarship offers and one of them is offensive tackle/defensive end Kiante Tripp.
"I have a bunch of offers, Auburn, Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Michigan and Florida," Tripp said. "My top six would be Georgia, Auburn, Michigan, Florida, Oklahoma and Alabama. I am also still looking at Clemson too though."
The 6-foot-5, 255-pound Tripp averaged nine tackles a game from defensive end and averaged 4.5 pancake blocks a game from offensive tackle.
"I am looking for early playing time, the environment and what position a school wants me to play," Tripp said. "I like defensive end a little better and I think that is my best spot, but if a team wants me to play tackle then I am fine with that, I will do whatever."
Tripp will attend the NIKE camp in Athens at the University of Georgia this weekend, as well as attending camps at Georgia and Auburn over the summer.
"I will probably make a decision about the eighth or ninth game of the season," Tripp said. "I want to take some visits and just make sure that I check out some stuff before I make a decision. I don't want to rush into anything."
So far this month he has had visitors from Florida State, Alabama, Purdue, Michigan, Oklahoma, Georgia, Ole Miss, USC, Mississippi State, Clemson, Arkansas and Baylor this month.
