Kitt heading out on the road

Demarre Kitt is one of the more sought after prospects in Georgia, and the four-star wide receiver has taken a few unofficial visits lately.

Four-star wide receiver Demarre Kitt recently capped off his fourth visit in the past month. He entered the consecutive trips with Ohio State and Clemson on top but still open to a few other schools.

The Tyrone (GA) Sandy Creek prospect's first trip was to Tuscaloosa to revisit the Alabama program that had been urging for him to return.

"They let me know that they'd love for me to play there," said Kitt. "Coach Saban told me to take my talents there and win him some more championships."

"The best part of my trip there was to hanging out with Coach Martin," he continued. "We relaxed and hung out without talking about football."

The 6-foot-1, 193 pound standout also ventured to Auburn. The new staff for the Tigers program had a clear message for Kitt.

"The coaches for Auburn want me to be apart of the team that builds the program back up," he stated. "They said I'm the receiver they want the most."

"It was my sixth time being at Auburn so I know pretty much everything about the school," he explained. "Right now it is about getting to know the staff even better and seeing if it is the right fit for me."

Towards the end of March, Kitt and his father made their way to Knoxville. Tennessee also breaks in a new coaching staff this year but they have been aggressive in their pursuit of the Georgia native.

"Tennessee has been one of the schools recruiting me the hardest," he said. "On the visit me and my dad were able to talk to their coaches and get acquainted with them. We were impressed with Coach (Butch) Jones and he has a proven track record."

"It was one of the visits my dad enjoyed the most," Kitt admitted. "He liked the facilities, the campus, and their academics."

His most recent stop among his unofficial visits was Columbus, Ohio. The second trip to Ohio State campus had quite an impact on Kitt and his father.

"Just like every other school Ohio State assured me I was a big priority for them," he explained. "They used the word playmaker a lot for what they think I would give to their team."

"I'm real close with their entire coaching staff," he stated. "Just like the Tennessee staff, I'm very comfortable with every Ohio State coach. I'm also becoming close with their players, and hanging out with them on the visit was the best part. I fit in."

Kitt confirmed that Ohio State was now in the lead for his services. Tennessee follows the Buckeyes on his list of favorites, and he will be back in Knoxville for their spring game on April 20th.

"I would have Ohio State first, then Tennessee second, with Clemson, Auburn and Georgia as my order," Kitt admitted.
