The Opening: Kenyon Frison Update

West Valley (Utah) Granger offensive lineman Kenyon Frison was an early commitment to Utah but that hasn't stopped other schools from still coming after him.

Kenyon Frison is a great story and a player whose stock is really rising fast. He has only played one year of football and is still raw in a lot of ways but his upside is extremely high. He participated in The Opening last week on the NIKE Campus in Portland and had a solid week.

"It was a great experience for me," Frison said. "it was everything I expected it to be and more. I felt good about how I did, I know I need to keep working and keep improving but I enjoyed the competition going against some of the best players in the country.

"I want to work on my punch and moving my feet more. I want to improve my technique and get faster to deal with some of the speed rushers out there. I also want to work on finishing a play and just being more dominant."

On the recruiting front, Frison gave an early commitment to Utah but other schools are still going hard after him.

"Washington and Oklahoma are coming after me pretty hard," Frison said. "They both offered me and I also have offers from Arizona and San Diego State. I'm still solid to Utah and it will take a lot to get me away from there but I do want to take some visits.

"I'll for sure visit Oklahoma and I think I'll visit Washington and Arizona as well. This is all pretty overwhelming for me. My junior year was the first year I ever played football so I never expected any of this. I committed to Utah and thought that would be it for me but with all these new schools recruiting me, I feel like I need to at least give them a look. "I like Utah a lot though. It will take a lot to get me to not go there. I live 10 minutes from the campus and I really like the coaching staff a lot. It's a great school but I still want to look around just to make sure I made the right decision."
