At least one Kansas school will get a visit

Linebacker Cedric Godfrey has his top five and potential visits lined up for the summer and fall. One Kansas program appears to be high atop his early list, another on the outside looking in possibly.

Kansas State isn't anywhere on his list anymore.

But Cedric Godfrey, an inside linebacker from Cedar Hill, Texas, does like another school in the Sunflower StateUniversity of Kansas.

"They haven't been calling me anymore and haven't shown any interest in me for a long time," Godfrey said. "Right now, I'm not interested in them."

In addition to the Jayhawks, Godfrey has interest in Baylor, Missouri, Nebraska, and Connecticut. He has also expressed some interest in LSU, Georgia Tech, UCLA, and Vanderbilt. However, only the Bears have offered so far.

Godfrey is a fast ‘backer at 4.5 speed in a 6-foot-2 220 pound frame, which is why he thinks he could fit in well especially at Nebraska in their notoriously fast defense.

"They fly to the ball there," he said. "That's the kind of aggressiveness and speed I play with all the time. I could see myself there."

However, Godfrey's speed has sometimes worked against him, often overrunning the play and missing the ball, which is why that part of this game is receiving a lot of attention this off-season.

"It hasn't been a terrible problem really, but I did it a little last year," said Godfrey, who has set goals of 100 tackles and 15 sacks for next season. "I just need to get my reads down better and then I'll be fine. I just play so fast that it hurts me sometime. Tackling drills and knowing what to look for on the run will help a lot."

Godfrey doesn't plan to take till February to make his decision—indicating that a decision could come as soon as mid-season in the fall.

This summer Godfrey plans to attend the Texas A&M and KU camps. In the fall, Godfrey wants to take officials to KU, Baylor, Vanderbilt, Nebraska, and possibly at UConn.
