Looking for that Feeling

At Sooners Illustrated, we look to bring you the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on Sooner targets. Today we talked with a hot prospect in Kenny Stills from California after tearing it up in his latest game.

There is no doubt that La Costa Canyon (CA) wide receiver Kenny Stills is one of the most sought after players in the country. But as it has been made public, only five schools have the attention on Scout.com's No. 6 receiver. 

Fresh off a visit from Tennessee, the 6-foot-1, 175-pound Stills said that is was enjoyable, felt good and had a lot of positives. Not enough for Stills to give a verbal for the Vols as he has a much grander plan in place.

It's an emotion, a feeling, that overwhelming sensation of joy and comfort that he seeks as he makes those trips. And after November 28, Stills said he would then know.

"I know what that feeling feels like. There is a school in my home state that gives me that feeling," Stills said. "I mean there is plenty of positives in all of the schools I will visit, but that overall feeling of comfort. You know, that buzz."

The in-state program he is speaking of is Cal, but he is not stating that the Bears are his leader.

"I took a note of how it felt when I went there (California). And it wasn't even a game or anything," Stills said. "It was just a regular day over the summer and it felt so comfortable. They are not my leader, but I know when I have that feeling while on a visit. I am looking for a school to give me that."

Everything on the college end gets cranked back up when Stills makes his way to three schools in November with Penn State, Oklahoma and Florida.

But for now, it's team ball and Stills is making the most of his final season at La Costa Canyon. Right now the team is 2-0 and have been dominant.

So mush to the point that Stills has not played a full game yet. In fact, he is barely getting to the second quarter.

"We have been really dominating team so far. The first game I played one quarter and the second I played in the first half," Stills said. "In the last game I had something like six catches for 140 yards and three touchdowns. I also returned a kickoff for a touchdown. We are looking better each week."

"Unbreakable Brotherhood" is the theme of the team and Stills said that everyone is coming together on a major way. The team is ranked No. 5 in the state and No. 2 in county. Last season, Stills caught 58 passes for over 1,300 yard and 17 touchdowns.
