Kidd Excels at Combine

The Shrine Bowl Combine held in Asheville (N.C.) this past Saturday played host to countless high school stars, but none shined brighter than Morgantown (N.C.) Freedom LB Sam Kidd.

Morganton, North Carolina

Kidd, at 5-foot-11 ½ and 216 pounds, post a 4.50-second forty-yard dash, a 4.07-second twenty-yard shuttle, and benched 215 pounds 18 times. This Kidd (pun intended) must have plenty of offers right?

"No sir, no offers," stated Kidd who is hearing from Georgia (his leader), Tennessee, Virginia Tech, N.C. State and Clemson. "Right now my grades aren't good so I think a lot of schools are waiting to see what happens with my grades."

Kidd has shifted his focus to his academics and feels everything will be in line in time for his senior year. Another focus of his has been a lengthy unofficial visits tour that recently concluded.

"We went to a bunch of junior days," remarked Kidd. "We went to Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia Tech, Clemson, North Carolina State, [North] Carolina; we went to a bunch of them."

Kidd plans to follow-up his extensive unofficial visits schedule with an equally hefty summer camping slate. Although nothing is set in stone, Kidd hopes to include stops at Georgia, Virginia Tech and Tennessee. Top Stories
