OT Kyler Kerbyson Profile
CUTigers recently caught up with Knoxville Catholic (Tenn.) offensive tackle Kyler Kerbyson.
So far this spring, the Scout.com three-star prospect and No. 28 rated offensive tackle has visited Clemson, Duke, Vanderbilt and Tennessee.
"I was in Clemson for their junior day in February," he said.
Since that junior day visit to Tigertown, contact with Clemson has somewhat tapered off.
"I had been talking to coach [Dan] Brooks a little bit. He'd come by the school to see me," Kerbyson said. "I was getting a lot of mail, but lately there hasn't been as much."
Though Clemson hasn't extended an offer, the Tigers were the first to show interest.
"They started sending me mail at the end of my sophomore year. I was really interested in them and really like it."
Alabama is the most recent school to extend and offer, joining Tennessee, USC, Stanford, UCLA, Maryland, Vanderbilt, Duke and Kentucky, among others.
As he evaluates his options, Kerbyson said academics are the biggest area he's considering.
"Those are important to me. I want to have a good job after football," he said.
Tradition is right there behind the academics.
"That's very high on my list—tradition," Kerbyson said.
Last is game day atmosphere.
"I want to run down that hill and touch that rock, feel the thrill of Saturday nights," he said.
Kerbyson is taking his time through the recruiting process and waiting to see what all happens before his senior season.
"I'm still taking it one step at a time, seeing all of my options," he said.
