"I lot of the recruiters like me at outside linebacker, but because I am not your prototypical LB being 5' 9, 210, some are recruiting me as a running back," added Joel Kight.
Kight moved all around his senior season.
Joel will play in the DeKalb County All-Star game at running back.
"It is not like I have never played RB. I had 32 TD's at tailback the last two years. I will play anywhere. I just want to be on the field."
Joel has already visited Boston College (10/18), Oklahoma State (12/10), and Georgia Tech (12/17), but he is waiting on his last visit to make a decision.
"I am going to go over to Ole Miss this weekend, and then I will make up my mind. I doubt I will take a fifth visit. My dad just got a new job, and it is too hard for him to get off."
What will he be looking for while on his visit to Ole Miss?
"Some of the big things, like how I get a long with the staff and the players. I know a lot of the players I meet on the team I will not be around for a long time, so the coaches are probably more important. I know they have a good education system. But above all else, I want a chance to play. Ole Miss is not close to Georgia, so I do not want a long ways to drive unless I have a chance to play (laugh). That will be the most important thing with me, playing time."
Who needs Joel the most?
"I feel like Boston College has two freshmen running backs, but they are telling me I am number one on their running back and linebacker board. Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Georgia Tech. They are all telling me they really need me, but you have to find where is best for me."
Has Kight taken a visit and said to himself, "this is where I fit in best?"
"Not really because what I want to do is see Ole Miss first, and then I will sit down. The three visits I have been on, I liked them all, but I have not sat down and gone over the pluses and minuses because I wanted to see Ole Miss first. Honestly, I can see myself at all four of those schools. I will take my Ole Miss visit and put it on paper. I will be able to visually see it then."
Any home visits the past week?
"Georgia Tech came by on Wednesday and Ole Miss came by on Thursday."
Have any head coaches been by Joel's house?
"Not yet, but Coach Gundy (OSU) and Nutt (OM) are suppose to come by next week. The Boston College head coach said he wanted to be the last head coach to see me, so I am not sure when he is coming."
