Burns Visits with Kinlaw

Stratford's Rodney Kinlaw, one of the top Tigers' top prospects at running back for the 2003 recruiting class, met with assistant coach Burton Burns earlier today. Details of that meeting and Kinlaw's trip to Happy Valley are contained in this report.

Rodney Kinlaw, one of the top running backs in the state of South Carolina this year, in going through the same old song and dance with three schools right now.

"Well it's basically down to Clemson, Virginia Tech, and Penn State," said Kinlaw.

"My visit to Clemson was great this past weekend, my host was Tye Hill, and we've known each other for a long time, so we just pretty much relived old times and stuff like that. It was nice."

Rodney's next official visit will be up to Happy Valley this weekend to see the Penn State Nitany Lions.

"Yeah, I'm looking forward to getting up there, and then I've got Virginia Tech the next weekend. I'm not sure if I'll wait until signing day to decide or if I'll just announce after my last visit," added Kinlaw.

Rodney was also visited today by Clemson assistant coach Burton Burns.

"Yeah he was there today for a while, and that went good. He was mostly just asking me if I had any questions, and then he was asking me about the schools and visits and stuff like that," said Kinlaw.

The senior running back maintains that none of the three schools are really pushing for a verbal commitment and that he's still keeping all of his options open at this point in the game.
