Korren Kirven talks SEC visit

Korren Kirven, four-star defensive tackle from Lynchburg-Brookville, Va., took his first unofficial visit to the University of Alabama. The East Coast star talked with Andrew Bone about the recent trip.

"We went to Alabama last Sunday," said Korren Kirven. "I just went for a visit. I didn't participate in the camp. I toured the campus and facilities.

"The visit to Alabama was great. It was a beautiful campus. They have great people to be around. The coaches were real cool. The facilities were top notch."

Kirven also talked about the time spent with the coaches.

"I talked to coach Saban while I was there," he said. "My dad, uncle and I sat down with him in his office. We talked about life after football. We were very impressed with how he presented himself.

"We talked to coach Sal [Sunseri] a lot. We sat in his office for a while. We went over some NFL tape. We talked about technique and footwork. They are recruiting me as a defensive end."

The elite defender has high interest in the Tide and plans to return.

"Alabama is a great school," said Kirven. "It's big-time football down there. All the coaches showed me great hospitality. They loved that I was down there.

"I met some of the players. They were real cool. I am definitely going back down to Alabama. I want to go to the Alabama/Auburn game. I think it's at Auburn. I will probably go to that game, but plan on going back to Tuscaloosa as well."

Kirven plans to visit the University of Tennessee on Friday. He hopes to travel to Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Stanford and Notre Dame before school starts next month.
