Rebels have a connection with California DE

Kenny Rowe (DE, Long Beach, CA) - Scout.com's #15 rated defensive end has simply been a one man show this season.

The 6' 4", 220 pound defensive end has helped Polytechnic to a 7-1 start and has collected 66 tackles and 14 sacks along the way.

"I am just stopping the run better," added Kenny Rowe. "I am better because because I am working harder in the off season to get my strength up and to help my techniques. Football is like a job. The more you work, the better you get."

Kenny has taken two official visits to Arizona (9/30) and California (10/21).

"Arizona was cool. The campus and new business school is what stood out the most. California was real cool too. It was homecoming. They had a good game against Oregon."

Kenny had this perspective on what official visits means for student/athletes.

"Official visits let you see how the players are and what they do before the games and you get a true feel for the school."

Kenny is in the process of setting up an official visit with one of his top schools.

"I am in the middle of setting up a visit with Oregon right now. They have a good team and their campus should be pretty cool. They are ranked high and have good academics."

There are also a few more schools that Rowe continues to show strong interest in.

"I am still looking at Fresno State, Nebraska, and Ole Miss real hard. Ole Miss was the first school to offer me, and Coach Orgeron recruited some of my people (brother). Our family has a good comfort level with him. Nebraska has good tradition, and Fresno has a good team and coach."

Three coaches have made the biggest impact with Rowe.

"Coaches Don Pellum (Oregon), Delgado (California), and Nielsen (Ole Miss) are the guys that I have developed the closest relationship with."

When asked which school wanted him the most; two schools came to mind.

"Oregon and Ole Miss are recruiting me the hardest."
