Kittredge was a Scout.com 3-star defensive end out of Don Bosco Prep High School in Ramsey, New Jersey. He played in the Under Armour All-American game before signing with Vanderbilt.
Because of depth issues Kittredge was moved to the offensive side of the ball during his freshman season at Vanderbilt.
Coming out of high school Kittredge stood 6-foot-4, 250-pounds. He has now added 20 pounds to his frame and will be a defensive tackle for the Spartans in 2012.
