JH: How is your season going?
KP: Right now we are struggling with a 2-3 record, but I am doing pretty well. We are young and are playing a lot of sophomores and juniors. We haven't been playing very smart and our mistakes have really hurt us. I feel that I am playing pretty well. I am getting double and triple teams on every snap, but that is creating a lot of room for my teammates. I have caused six fumbles thus far this season and recovered another four. I would say it is safe to say that I have had over 60 tackles."
JH: You can play anywhere on the field, so where do you see yourself playing at the next level?
KP: I see myself as a middle linebacker, but a lot of schools will move me around to keep the offense honest. I am a confident player and think I can be a major contributor no matter where I go."
JH: How many schools have offered you?
KP: I don't know how many schools have offered me, but I know I can go to any school in the country. I am down to six schools. I like Virginia, Virginia Tech, Florida, Florida State, Tennessee and Stanford. I am still talking to Oklahoma, but as yet I don't know how much interest that I have.
I have set up a criteria and right now those six schools that I mentioned are at the top of my list. I would have to say Virginia is my favorite school right now. My criteria is set upon academics, reputation, football program, head coach and the coach that is recruiting me as well.
Recruiting: Virginia Beach LB is one of the best
