The 6'2, 255 pound defensive end from Indianapolis Pike already had offers from Iowa, Iowa State, Indiana and Minnesota before picking up his latest offer from Louisville, where he'll visit this weekend for the Cardinals Junior Day.
A self-described 'sack-specialist, Kenney set a Pike-record with 12 sacks as a junior, earning All-County and second team All-State honors. Monday, Kenney made a strong impression at the Best of the Midwest Combine in his hometown of Indianapolis.
"It went pretty well," said Kenney. "I got a chance to go against the No. 14 offensive lineman. I got past him the first time then I beat him pretty bad with an inside move the second time."
On the recruiting front, Kenney has visited Iowa three times, including earlier this month for the Hawkeyes Junior Day event. This weekend, he'll attend Louisville's Junior Day, and plans to attend junior day at Indiana and Michigan next month.
"That was my third time there and I met the defensive line coach," Kenney said of his experience at Iowa. "I also talked one-on-one with Coach Ferentz for a couple minutes. And we had a position meeting that was good."
Kenney says he's interested in Louisville because of Charlie Strong's coaching staff and he'll have an opportunity to compare the Cardinals to the Hawkeyes this weekend.
"I met Louisville's head coach at my sister's volleyball tournament because his daughter plays volleyball," Kenney said. "I couldn't talk him but my dad did. My dad likes him and DeAndre Herron told me he's [Strong] a good coach and they've got a good program."
Kenney is keeping an open mind about his recruitment, but it's clear that his familiarity with Iowa has the Hawkeyes in a strong position.
"They showed early interest and that got me a little more interested in them," Kenney said. "They're probably [in the lead] right now, but I also like IU a lot, and Minnesota. I have five offers. I like all of them really."
Kenney wants to see what other teams come through with offers before he makes a college decision. Florida and USC are expressing interest, and Kenney said he'd consider both schools if they offered scholarships.
