"I went up to Penn State this weekend to watch them play Wisconsin and met with their defensive backs coach who asked me for film of me playing in the secondary which I haven't done too much this year," Kinnard explained. "I told him I would get that up to him soon, but gave him my offensive highlights for the season until then. He was a very nice guy, as was everyone else I met at Penn State. I felt very welcomed there."
"I actually loved it so much there that I am planning a return trip for the Ohio State game in a few weeks," Kinnard added. "The fans at Penn State are crazy and that has to be the best tailgating site in the country. The campus is really nice and I like that it's basically its own little city in the middle of no where. Penn State is definitely one of my top choices after that visit."
Kinnard is also hearing from a number of other schools including Boston College, North Carolina, Rutgers, Duke, Virginia, Connecticut, Georgia Tech and Notre Dame right now.
"I actually got a handwritten letter from Coach (Ron Powlus) at Notre Dame recently and wrote him back, so we spoke this week," Kinnard stated. "They asked me to send my film as soon as possible, so I am going to get that up there. I really like what I know about Notre Dame, but I want to go to one of their games and find out more specifics about the program and school."
As a sophomore, Kinnard played quarterback and completed 103 of 185 passes for 1415 yards, 11 touchdowns and six interceptions. He also ran for 303 yards and 11 more touchdowns. He was selected first-team All-Conference, All-Metro and All-County, as well as earning second-team All-State honors.
