"Virginia Tech offered me, so that makes them, Virginia, Maryland, Stanford, and West Virginia as the teams that have offered," says the 6-foot-5, 260 pounder. "I still have to visit Stanford June 20, but I am thinking about committing in July."
Out of a desire to focus on his football season, Kirchner has stated early on he wanted to commit early. However, he also once stated that Virginia Tech had a substantial lead as well.
"Right now, I am thinking Virginia has a lead over Tech. I got a good feeling while I was visiting Virginia for their spring practices, and they have a great atmosphere."
No matter the team, they will have a great defensive end or defensive tackle, whichever Kirchner chooses. He could end up as a strong-side defensive end with his ability to keep blockers off of him.
"I would say that pass-rushing is my strength. I like to rush the pass because I do not like the offensive line to get too close to me."
The question now is how close he will let the schools get to him before Kirchner commits soon.
