Ware Would Not Mind Joining Sibling in Pac-10

Kevin Ware has done well as the tight end for the Washington Huskies. Arizona State is the only Pac-10 team recruiting Kevin's younger brother Kurt. Could the TE/DE from Spring, TX become the second family member to play out west?

The 6-5 243 Klein Oak standout has been recruited by the Sun Devils since his junior year. According to Ware, ASU's defensive coordinator Brent Guy has made a positive impact from day one. "He's a cool guy." says Ware, "He made a good impression on me ever since I met him. He looks like a coach that gets what he wants." Speaking of wants, the two-way player does desire to play in the same league as his brother. "Yeah, that would be cool to go up against him once a year. It would make that game real fun."

Ware lists his favorites as ASU, Wisconsin, Florida, Texas A&M, and Pitt. "Everybody but Florida has offered. Wisconsin is the only school I visited until now, so they're my favorite." Ware will be visiting Tempe this weekend, and his last scheduled visit is to Texas A&M on 1/10. Out of the two positions he plays, Ware slightly prefers the tight end position. This may be good news for ASU who is recruiting him for that position. A&M and Pitt are the only schools that would like him to play as a defensive end.

Klein Oak runs a single wing offense, so catches have been hard to come by this season when playing tight end . "I have ten catches for 197 yards and a touchdown. I did well at defensive end. I had five sacks and 12 tackles for loss." Ware who runs a 4.6 thinks of his speed as one of his biggest assets. "I have a lot of speed, and I do a good job getting around the edge to the quarterback. I do have strong legs, but I need to work on my upper body."

"Previous winning record and playing right away" are two of the biggest factors that will convince Ware to sign with one of his favorites. He doesn't expect to make a decision before his last visit to A&M.
