Daren Kitchen, a 6'1" 170 pound cornerback prospect from Vandebilt Catholic in Houma, Louisiana, has started his senior season off the right way.
"It's been going good," Kitchen told
2-1 right now, so it's started off pretty good.
Right now I have 19 tackles, 4 breakups and 1 interception for a
Kitchen, who has long since had the Wolverines out front
even without a written offer, says that might be on the way quite
"It's like a verbal offer, for a while now. Coach Fred is telling me that Coach
to look through my tape some more. I
actually talked to him and he thinks on my film he thinks he's seen all he

out front for so long, especially without an offer, has been a bit rough on
Kitchen. Yet, again, the blazing start Michigan has roared too

sophomore season when he started seeing me.
I would say it's like a dream offer because everyone knows Michigan and you

would be great. Now that they're back,
it's kind of easier to be in with them and keep them as my favorite."
