Kimbrough looking to hear more from ND

Notre Dame will receive the signature of Indianapolis (IN) Warren Central defensive lineman Sheldon Day on National Signing Day. However, the Irish may also be looking to add one of his younger teammates, Tim Kimbrough.

With high school teammate Sheldon Day getting ready to head off to Notre Dame, junior linebacker Tim Kimbrough knows the Irish could be one of the better fits when it's his turn to make a college decision.

The Irish made an in school visit to see Day, however, Kimbrough knows it's still early and the Irish have time to start the heavy recruiting process following signing day. What has Kimbrough learned watching Day and others go through the process?

"I'm really learning a lot," said Kimbrough. "Sheldon has taught me how to look at schools and showing me why I need to continue to work harder in the weight room."

Despite already holding three verbal offers, do not look for the 6-foot-1, 215-pounder to change his ways.

"I'm still humble," said Kimbrough. "I'm working as hard as I can to get better for next season. I need to work on my speed and being more explosive."

At the start of the season Warren Central was projected to be one of the favorites to reach the 5A championship game. After earning victories in the first two rounds, Warren Central was bounced by Carmel 34-30 ending their dream season.

"I was very disappointed," said Kimbrough. "I felt we were too good to lose. But I guess they out played us and that is how it happened."

While Notre Dame is taking it's time, three other programs have already jumped and given verbal offers.

"I have three offers," said Kimbrough. "I have been offered by North Carolina, Cincinnati, and Purdue. I went down to North Carolina during Thanksgiving and I like their defense as it's the same one we run. Cincinnati has a lot of guys from here going there so I know they'll be guys there that can help me."

While each of the three who have offered could be in the running, Kimbrough's friendship with Day could give the Irish an advantage if they offer.

"I feel Notre Dame would be a good school to go to," said Kimbrough. "With Sheldon there I know he would be there for support and to help me. I think it would be a good football program to go also."

Has Kimbrough seen the Irish in action?

"Yes, I visited Purdue when they played against Notre Dame," said Kimbrough. "I could not believe how huge they were." Top Stories
