Top Performer Nike Camp - Ben Kline

Ben Kline (6-2/220) of Dallastown High School in Dallastown, Pa. was one of the top performers at the Nike Camp held at Penn State last weekend. He holds nearly double digit offers and updates Scout on his recruitment.

Ben Kline is a multifaceted big athlete that is capable of playing several positions on the next level, something he's familiar with as a do-it-all player for his Dallastown team.

"I had 118 tackles on defense," said Kline after the Nike Camp on Sunday. "I also had 26 catches for about 400 yards."

Sizing up his 6-2/220 pound frame, I asked a question I thought I knew the answer to already, "at tight end?".

"Actually, I lined up mostly at slot receiver," answered Kline. "I played a little bit of tight end and h-back, but mostly receiver."

Kline has the size and range to play inside or outside at linebacker on the college level, but he doesn't particularly have a preference.

"I have offers from West Virginia, UConn, Rutgers, Navy, Pittsburgh, Boston College, Michigan, Temple, and Vanderbilt right now. Some of the schools are recruiting me at linebacker, some at tight end, some at h-back, fullback. I really don't have a preference right now on position."

Asked what might play into his decision to choose a school, Kline was interested in coaching.

"I'll probably narrow it down sometime this summer. I want to look at who is going to develop me into the best player I can be during my career."
