Offense or Defense for Frost?

It's a difficult question that a few have to answer: Which position will I play in college? Kris Frost from Matthews (N.C.) David W. Butler has more than just a couple of positions to consider. He is hearing three different positions on defense; safety, linebacker or defensive end; and he's also hearing wide receiver on offense. Which does he prefer?

At 6-foot-3 and 210-pounds, there are only a handful of positions that Kris Frost couldn't project to in college. The standout from Matthews (N.C.) David W. Butler is having a busy evaluation period and expects the offers to pour in.

"It's great, it really is," Frost said. "It's really starting to heat up and my coach said that the offers are really going to start coming in this month."

There are a few schools that Frost would like to get an offer from. More than that, he would like some schools to follow up their consistent interest in him with an offer.

"I am waiting on a few to offer. I am waiting on schools like Georgia, maybe like Florida State and Miami. I am also interested in new schools making a push for me.

"Schools like UCLA who I get a lot of mail from, but I would like to get an offer from them. I am really trying to get all of the offers in front of me then pick the places I am going to visit this summer."

Frost really burst onto the scene with a very good camp at Virginia Tech. It was there that he really highlighted his linebacker ability for the world to see.

"I did very well at the Nike camp at Virginia Tech. I think that I did well in the lateral movement tests, covering the running back out of the backfield and covering slot receivers.

"We also did some agility work that I felt like I did very good with. We also did some rushing the passer drills and things like that. I really felt like I showed what I could do."

While Frost could play linebacker in college there are at least two other positions that he is being projected to play in college and one on offense.

"I am being looked at to play the outside linebacker position mostly. LSU said I could develop into an inside linebacker, it just really depended on how I developed.

"Other schools are offering me for other positions. Virginia Tech offered me as a defensive end, South Carolina offered me as a walk-up safety and Michigan, Auburn and North Carolina all say linebacker or receiver."

If Frost had his choice of which position to play he knows what that would be. Still, it's going to be the overall comfort level of him at the school that lends itself the most to his decision.

"Ultimately it's going to come down the school that I am the most comfortable with. I would rather play receiver, but at this point it's all about being the most comfortable."

As a receiver Frost has that frame that you look for in a big, rangy flanker. He has very good speed for a big guy and provides some mismatch problems with the linebackers and smaller secondary players.

"I feel like I can go up and get the ball in traffic and take big hits; I am a bigger guy. I can get open between the linebackers and go up and get the jump ball."

The Huskers have been in contact with Frost through the mail, but last week Nebraska came in to see him in person. Frost has heard that Nebraska does seem very interested in him.

"Nebraska was out here to see me this past week. I don't really know a lot about Nebraska. They have sent me some things here and there.

"Like my coach said things are starting to heat up and Nebraska is one of those new schools to show up at my school to take a look at me. They seemed really interested in me."

If Nebraska were to offer they might be a school that Frost would consider visiting a little later this summer. There is going to be some required time to go through offers, old and new, to really figure out where he will visit this summer.

"I would like to get over to Nebraska this summer to take a closer look at what they have to offer. I really would like to look more into them."
