Kinlaw Talks Recruiting

South Carolina running back Rodney Kinlaw is having a sensational senior season for Stratford High. The 5-10 185 pound back talks about his undefeated senior campaign, current college choices, and future visit plans.

South Carolina Rodney Kinlaw is one of the top running backs in the state this season. With a 4.35 forty time, Kinlaw has amassed huge stats in his ten games this season.

"I have around 155 carries for 1527 yards and 25 touchdowns," Kinlaw told CUTigers. "I'm running a lot better than last year. A year experience made it all easier this year."

Kinlaw has helped lead Stratford to a 10-0 record on the season heading into a conference finale with Wando this weekend. Wando is also undefeated in the conference, 8-2 overall. As for his recruitment, Kinlaw names five favorites. "Penn State, Virginia Tech, Clemson, USC (South Carolina), and North Carolina State are my five," Kinlaw said. He also noted that none of those schools stand out above the rest at this point. Virginia Tech is the school recruiting Kinlaw the hardest.

While he has five schools, those schools will not necessarily get his five visits. "I'm pretty sure about Tech, Penn State, and Clemson getting official visits, but the other two I'm not sure about yet," Kinlaw said. He has no plans set for unofficial or official visits in the near future but says he might be up for another Tech game at the end of November.

"Virginia Tech is the only school I've visited unofficially this season," Kinlaw noted. "I might attend the game November 30 against Virginia for another unofficial though. I'll take my official visits later and will try to decide in January."

As for the rest of the season, Kinlaw has big goals for his Stratford squad. "I want to hopefully win the state championship and keep being successful," Kinlaw said. "I really want to win that state championship."
