Kinlaw Ready for Clemson Visit

Stratford running back Rodney Kinlaw has his four official visits lined up and ready to go. Is there any chance one of the state's fastest backs will commit to the Tigers this weekend? Details inside!

Stratford running back Rodney Kinlaw was instrumental in leading his team to just one regular season loss this past year.

After finishing up his high school career in the Shrine Bowl back in mid-December, the senior is now focused on the upcoming recruiting visits in January.

"I've got my visits scheduled to Clemson this weekend, then I'm going to Penn State, South Carolina, and then to Virginia Tech," said Kinlaw.

Is there any chance a commitment to Clemson could occur after this weekend?

"I'd like to take all my visits, so I'm probably going to wait and see what all the different schools I have to offer, but I'll pick between one of the four I'm visiting. Right now, I'm keeping everything open." added Kinlaw.

Rodney figures to be one of the top prospects on the Tigers' board at running back. The 5-10, 185 pound senior runs a 4.35 forty, and is widely considered as the fastest running back in the state of South Carolina.

"I'm looking forward to getting up there this weekend, it should be great," said Kinlaw. "I'll probably know something really close to signing day. Probably sometime in late January after I take all of my official visits," said Kinlaw in reference to a time table on his decision.

Burton Burns is Kinlaw's main recruiter, and he has maintained constant contact now for quite some time. Kinlaw has also been receiving mail from head coach Tommy Bowden as well.

Rodney rushed for just under 1,800 yards and 30 touchdowns this past season for the Knights. We will continue to keep you updated on Rodney's recruitment, right up through signing day.
