As Nebraska starts to look to the upcoming 2005-2006 class, they are looking for some of the finest athletes in the country. A philosophy that would definitely jive with one junior in particular that already claims an offer from Nebraska amongst other prominent programs throughout the country. What does this athlete offer his future collegiate choice and how has he fared in his current high school ranks?
Kindle reminds a few folks of one of the newest Nebraska Cornhuskers, Barry Turner. Kindle stands 6' 3", weighs
in at 220 pounds and runs a 4.53 40 yard dash. His skills serve him well as a
runningback and linebacker for Woodrow Wilson High
School in Dallas, Texas.
With a 315 pound bench press and a 475 squat, strength is one of Kindle's
strengths along with his intensity and love for the game. Last year, on offense he had 1825 yards
on 214 carries (8.5 yards per carry) and 25 touchdowns, while on defense, he had
126 tackles and 8 sacks. He was
named his district's Offensive MVP, an All-Area 1st team RB,
All-state honorable mention on both sides of the ball and a Preseason
All-American for the upcoming season.
bevy of offers are ones from Nebraska,
Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Baylor and
Wisconsin. Kindle currently claims Texas Tech as a
slight leader, though he admits that the position for the Red Raiders isn't set
in stone. He plans to attend the
Texas' Junior Day on the
26th of February to hone his skills.
wasn't a fan of any particular college growing up, but he's starting to learn a
bit about the schools that have begun to court him. Sergio likes what he's hearing from the
Cornhuskers, specifically. "I like
like their style of offense, they send a lot off players to the league on
defense," he said. Kindle sees
Nebraska as a
program on the way back to prominence and wouldn't mind helping in that
regard. The Cornhuskers have made
sure to let Sergio know that they are interested, as well. "One of their coaches was up at our
school like two weeks ago and I got his card and they sent me a couple of
letters. The last time I got a
letter was a week ago, but they didn't start sending their letters until two
weeks ago," he said.
talked a bit about big factors in his eventual decision and he could only really
think of one that might have some impact.
"Probably weather because I'm not real good with a lot of cold weather, I
can deal with it. I'm not sure yet
because I haven't dealt with it before," said Kindle. On the topic of official or unofficial
visits, Kindle said, "I'm probably gonna take some next year (senior season) but
not now." Sergio discussed some of
his goals for the upcoming season, as well. "One of my goals is to better my stats
from this year and at least get the same stats as last year. Also, we've been to the second round
playoffs and lost to the same team two years in a row, so we want to beat Wyle
High School," he said.
