DOTHAN, Ala (WDHN) — Senior offensive lineman Jay Austin Solomon of Northside Methodist Academy, signed a letter of commitment to play college football at Huntingdon College in Montgomery.
With COVID-19 health protocols in effect on college campuses, Solomon committed to Huntingdon without really visiting the campus.
In today’s recruiting world, a lot depends on social media and virtual access.
“It was tough, we couldn’t really visit a lot of campuses,” Solomon said. “We couldn’t have those cool pictures with the helmets and the uniforms on, but I think with corona you really know how much you love the school. You don’t go because you want the pictures. You go because you like the school.”
Solomon says his years playing football at Northside Methodist has prepared him for his next chapter.
