Standout LB Likes UM

This talented linebacker is considered one of the top prospects in the state of Texas. He talks about the recruiting process, what he likes about Miami, and more in this interview.

At 6-foot-1 and 210 pounds, Klein, Texas standout Robert Killebrew lined up as a defensive end this season and finished the season with 17 sacks.

Killebrew, who is being recruited to play linebacker in college, ran a 4.5 at the NIKE Camp, jumped 39.5 inches, and did 24 reps on the bench press.

A full academic qualifier, Killebrew talked about the recruiting process.

"It seems a lot more hectic now that people know our season's over," he said. "A lot of coaches and members of the media have been calling. Basically, I know for sure that I'll be taking trips to UCLA, Texas, and Florida. I'm also hoping to make visits to Oklahoma and Miami. All of them except for Miami has offered me."

Killebrew talked more about the Hurricanes.

"I've always liked them," he said. "When I heard they came by my school, I was pretty excited. They have a great tradition there and they're always one of the best teams."

However, Killebrew said he's not sure what has been going on with UM in recent weeks.

"I really haven't talked to them in several weeks," he said. "It's been a long while. Maybe they're not interested anymore or something, I don't know. If they started calling again, I'd love to take a visit there because Miami's one of the places I'm interested in going."

Killebrew said he has not yet lined up any dates for his official visits.

"It doesn't matter to me where I go," he said. "I just am going to pick the school that makes me feel most comfortable."
