Starting September 1st, college football staffs have started making their weekly calls to prospective recruits again. For many it can be a very hectic time. But Dre Kirkpatrick is just taking it all in stride and not allowing the calls to become to overwhelming for him.
"Man, right now I am just taking my time and concentrating on my last high school football season," he told GoBlueWolverine. "I am just trying to focus on getting to the playoffs."
The Gadsden, Alabama product has led his team to a 2-1 record so far with three interceptions - one of those he brought back for a touchdown."Yeah I took one to the house," he said. "I picked it off and I received some blocking up-field and scored."
With teammate and five-star receiver Kendal Kelly injured, more has been asked of Kilpatrick. "I have been playing receiver and I might play a little quarterback at times," he said. "I will do anything to help my team."
Although he is putting all of his attention towards his football season he does make time for recruiting calls. "I spoke with Coach Hopson from Michigan the other night and he was telling me how they could use me on defense." He continues to have an interest in the Wolverines.
He also has talked recently to coaches from "Tennessee, Alabama, Texas and Florida State" with many more calls to come. And he attended Alabama's home opener a week ago for an unofficial visit.
As of right now he has no leader, and he says his recruiting focus will not pick up until the completion of his football season.
"I am just so focused on our season right now. I appreciate the calls and having a chance to talk to the coaches, but I am trying to help my team win and that is where my mind is now."
