K.T. Mainord is a player that has not received a lot of interest among the recruitniks, but college recruiters know exactly where to find him. The 6-4 and 265 pound defensive end/tight end has had a steady flow of letters and coaches come to his school in Coalmont, TN.
"He plays defensive end and tight end for us," said Grundy County Head
Coach Ken Colquitt. "He is a legit 4.7 forty guy. He has tremendous closing
speed. He's better in pursuit right now than he is if they are coming right at
him. In fact, he's the best guy I've ever had in pursuit. One team ran a reverse
on us this year, and Mainord made a bad technique play, but he turned around and
chased the guy down."
Who are some of the schools that have made their way to come see Mainord?
"Tennessee, Vanderbilt, South Carolina, Auburn, Tennessee, Tech, and MTSU
have all been here. Alabama sends stuff every day, and we hear a lot from
Nebraska and Southern Miss. Vanderbilt and South Carolina are two teams that I
know for sure that have offered him."
Who are some of the schools that Mainord himself is interested in?
"I really was waiting on Tennessee," said Mainord. "but they
haven't offered so I'm focusing on some other schools. I really like Georgia,
South Carolina, Vanderbilt, and Alabama. I plan on taking unofficials to
Tennessee, South Carolin, and Vanderbilt, and I will start to plan my official
Mainord has the size to play defensive tackle on the next level, but with Coach
Colquitt's scouting report, it sounds as if Mainord will be better suited to
remain outside and come off the edge.
