Kite, who is described by Scout.com as "a hard-nosed football player that flies around on defense" is projected to start his career at safety, but could move to the strike position in Duke's 4-2-5 scheme. Before any of that happens, however, Kite knows he'll have to see how he stacks up at the collegiate level.
"I talked a little with Coach Collins about that this weekend, but mainly we just talked about making plans for the summer. I know I'm heading down to Duke on May 15th, and I can't wait to get to Duke."
As with most of his classmates, Kite says he's ready to get on the field, but he's battling a shoulder injury that is just now healing.
"I've been working out for a while trying to strengthen my shoulder ever since I was cleared after surgery. I'm actually just starting to get back at the weights, but I've been doing a lot of running to stay in shape."
Overall, the transition to college is something Kite says he's got mixed emotions about.
"I am excited, but there is a lot to be learned before I'm ready to go fully. I am definitely looking forward to getting back on the field, because it's been a while. I am actually a little bit nervous, but mostly I'm anxious to get started."
