UGA added a big recruit to the program this weekend. He has good size and isn’t too shabby in the post. He will immediately add tremendous size to the team.
The fact that Solomon Kindley is an offensive lineman only shows his overall value. Kindley told DawgNation.com he got an offer from UGA offensive line coach Sam Pittman earlier this week and made an abrupt official visit this weekend.

Kindley had to enjoy the visit because he committed to UGA on that trip. Kindley (Jacksonville, Fla.) now becomes the 16th commitment for the Class of 2016, and the third offensive lineman for this year’s class.
He’s rated as a three-star recruit and as the nation’s No. 87 offensive tackle among all high school seniors. Yet perhaps the big numbers to focus on include his 6-foot-5 inch frame and his 330 pounds. He carries the nickname “The Moving Train” and is athletic enough to also average five points and four rebounds per game on the basketball court this year for Raines High School.
He’s that big but has also averaged 10 points per game over his last three contests at center for high school basketball team.
That’s the snapshot of what Pittman is looking for with his big guys up front for UGA.
