Cal on Carolina Athlete's List

Matthews (N.C.) Butler wide receiver/linebacker Kris Frost is a standout on both sides of the ball. He holds double-digit offers from a wide range of major BCS programs, including California, where he hopes to visit...

Kris Frost (6-3, 210) now denies a leader but favors Michigan, Auburn, California, North Carolina and Maryland. Frost claims offers from all of his favorites as well as Illinois, South Carolina, North Carolina State, Virginia Tech, East Carolina and Virginia.

He says he grew up following Michigan. "I liked Michigan a lot when I was like in the fourth grade," Frost said. "But really I was just a huge fan of college football and watched everybody."

Frost says the Wolverines are recruiting him as a wide receiver. "I like the spread offense they run," he said.

Although Frost is ranked as the No. 27 outside linebacker in the country by, he says he prefers playing offense. "I'd rather play receiver," he said. "But it's not that big a deal. It's all about the college and how I fit in best.

"I've been playing offense longer though," he said.

Auburn is another program that is recruiting Frost for offense. "They run an offense that is very similar to my high school," he said. "I think I'd fit in well there."

The only school that he has already visited is North Carolina as the Tar Heels are only two hours away. "I went to their junior day and it was pretty good," he said. "I think I could play linebacker early there, but they also talked to me for offense.

"They have a fun offense that I like," he said. "And they run a 4-3 defense which fits my style too. North Carolina is just a great place. I love the campus."

He says that distance will not be a factor. "I'm not really concerned about that," he said. "I'll go wherever I feel at home."

This summer Frost plans to attend camps at Michigan and Auburn. "I'll try and go to quite a few camps," he said. "And if I don't go to the camp, I still plan on traveling around and seeing as many places as I can."

One school that he hopes to visit is California. "I like the Pac-10," he said. "It's a very tough conference, but that's about all I know about Cal. They seem pretty interested, so I'll check them out.

"I'm being recruited a little by UCLA and USC too so I might try and visit Los Angeles this summer too," he said.

The Bears are recruiting him as a linebacker.

Another school recruiting him for linebacker is Maryland. "That was one of the first recruiting letters I ever got," he said. "It was a questionnaire and they've been recruiting me hard since."

Frost says he plans to make a decision before his senior season. "I want to feel at home wherever I am," he said. "Another thing that is important to me is growth. I want to go where I can see something special happening. I want a team that is coming up. I'm looking at what they're gonna do, not what they've done."

He finished his junior season with five interceptions, four fumbles recovered and three fumbles caused.

"I feel like I'm very intense," Frost said. "On defense I have great awareness and speed and pursuit.

"On offense I have good size and strength," he said. "I'm hard to bring down and can go up and get the ball."

He says he can bench 305-pounds and squat 425. "I want to improve my agility and speed," he said. "I want to run better routes and improve my movement. I want to stop on a dime better."

Frost reports a 2.5 core GPA and is taking the SAT in May.
