Eugene Kinlaw Set to Visit Georgia

Homerville (GA) Clinch County three-star defensive lineman Eugene Kinlaw will be visiting Athens this weekend after picking up an offer from the Dawgs. While holding several offers incuding Arkansas, Troy and Miss. State, Kinlaw is still in the process of weighing his options.

No doubt about it, Eugene Kinlaw has the size, talent and potential to play at the next level.  However, his academic status has raised questions about which school he will be attending this fall.

"I'm probably going to a junior college," said Kinlaw. "Right now, I'm just working hard trying to get my grades right."

Kinlaw currently holds offers from Mississippi State, Arkansas, Troy and several smaller schools.  He has gotten interest from several other schools including his latest offer from the University of Georgia.  Georgia invited the 6-foot-4, 285-pound prospect to Athens for an official visit on January 26th. 

"I'm going up to Georgia this weekend," Kinlaw said.  "They just offered me and their coaches want to talk to me and see where I stand academically.   They said I may have to go to a prep school or I could go to  Hargrave (a military academy in Chatham, Virginia). "

Georgia will be the first of two official visits for Kinlaw.  He will take an official visit to Troy on February 2nd.

Which school does Kinlaw favor with national signing day just around the corner?

"I can't say right now.  I'm still undecided," he said.

Kinlaw, who led the Panthers to last season's Class A state championship game, finished with 54 tackles, 12 tackles for loss and seven sacks.  He is a good athlete who is surprisingly quick and able to consistently penetrate the opponent's backfield.

Kinlaw was named honorable mention All-State and first-team All-Region as a senior.
