Alabama offered one of the nation’s top defensive tackles in April, but what has happened since has upset the elite prospect.
Aubrey Solomon, a 2017 4-star defensive tackle from Lee County High School (Leesburg, Ga.), told SEC Country that his relationship with the Crimson Tide is very cold right now.
“I thought we had something. It’s like they broke up with me,” Solomon said. “I feel a little sad. I’m not going to lie.”
Solomon is doing some heartbreaking of his own, too.
His former high school teammate, Georgia offensive line commit Chris Barnes, has been recruiting Solomon to join him in Athens, Ga. Solomon had UGA at the top of his list but ultimately dropped them after the school parted ways with Mark Richt.
“(Chris) was a little saddened by it, but he understood. It’s a business after all,” Solomon said.
The 6-foot-3, 305-pounder said he’s hoping Alabama and UGA pick up their recruitment of him. In the meantime, Solomon is going to focus on his new top five, which you can read about here.
Solomon is ranked as the nation’s No. 7 defensive tackle and is the state of Georgia’s No. 15 prospect.
