The four schools previously mentioned are not the only ones that have expressed serious interest in the 5-foot-10, 180-pound running back.
"I'm getting a lot of letters from Alabama, LSU, North Carolina, N.C. State, Florida, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Washington, Vanderbilt, Georgia, Georgia Tech, UCLA, and Oregon," he said. "I hoping LSU or Alabama offer next."
The three-star running back has only visited one school this fall and he came away very impressed.
"I was at Tennessee the weekend before last for the Florida game," Kinlaw said. "It was really good. All the fans were hospitable. Everything was exciting up there – loud. It was a good environment to be around."
Kinlaw will try to take more trips in the near future.
"I'm definitely trying to get to LSU and Alabama," he said. "I'm thinking about trying to get up to Virginia Tech and North Carolina. I haven't set up any dates, but I'm looking at the schedules right now."
While Kinlaw did not name a favorite, he did say there was a group of schools that have gotten his attention.
"Right now, South Carolina, LSU, Alabama, Clemson, North Carolina, North Carolina State, and Oregon – those are the ones standing out – in no particular order," said Kinlaw. "I'll probably narrow my list to five in the spring. I don't know when I will commit, but I know I'm going to take my (official) visits."
Kinlaw is the No.42 junior running back in the country. Goose Creek takes on Cane Bay Friday night.
