ON LOCATION: Caleb Kinlaw

GOOSE CREEK - Nearly a decade ago, Rodney Kinlaw was one of the most highly sought after running backs in South Carolina.

The speedy running back, who graduated from Stratford High School in 2003, took his talents to Penn State. Now, his younger brother, Caleb Kinlaw, has begun to make a name for himself at nearby Goose Creek High School.

The younger Kinlaw rushed 39 times for 524 yards and four touchdowns and returned three kicks for 80 yards as a freshman.

Florida, Oregon and Nebraska have already sent camp brochures to the 5-foot-10, 168-pound running back.

Kinlaw recently listed a few others that he hopes will show interest.

"I guess Virginia Tech, Georgia, Georgia Tech [and] the local schools," he told CUTigers.com last week. "A few scouts have been by our spring practice. North Carolina State, ECU, Coastal, Clemson and a few others. This was my first time hearing from [Clemson]."

With plenty of time left before the 2014 signing day, the rising sophomore is wide-open to any and all suitors.

"I have interest in any school that wants me. I'm open right now," he said.

Kinlaw's lone college visit was last fall, when he went to South Carolina.

"It was good. It's kind of an urban environment. That's OK. Everything else was perfect," he said.

Don't expect Kinlaw to follow in the footsteps of his older brother, if the opportunity to play for the Nittany Lions presents itself. Penn State is too far from home.

"The furthest I'd probably go is maybe Virginia Tech," he said.

This summer, Kinlaw plans on attending the National Underclassman Combine Elite 100 in Atlanta and the showcase camp at South Carolina.
