Top Rated LB Prospect Interested in PSU

Kelvin Flood is a highly rated LB prospect that currently plays DE for Kimball High School in Dallas, Texas. He has been offered by PSU and is interested.

Because of his speed (4.4 40-yard dash) and strength (315 bench press), the 6'2", 207-pounder has been receiving attention from a host of schools.  Seven schools, including Penn State, have extended a scholarship offer.

"I have offers from LSU, West Virginia, Arizona, Baylor, Toledo, Penn State and Kentucky," Kelvin said.

 Other recruiting Kelvin are Georgia Tech, Florida, Michigan, Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Nebraska.  Georgia Tech and West Virginia are recruiting him the hardest.  Kelvin made a verbal commitment to West Virginia in June, but retracted it a few days later after realizing he should take more time with his decision.

 Kelvin's favorite team has been Michigan since he was 5 years old.  Michigan has been recruiting Kelvin, and if they offered, they would be his favorite.

 "I would have to say so," he admitted.  "They haven't offered yet.  They want to see more film and stuff like that.  I missed my first game due to a shoulder injury, but we're going to send them a tape of my next game."

 After Michigan, Kelvin favors Georgia Tech and then West Virginia.  He will make a decision sometime closer to signing day, after he takes his official visits.

 "I plan on taking my official visits in January," he said.  "I'll visit Florida, West Virginia, Georgia Tech, Michigan, and I was kind of thinking Nebraska but I'm still not super sure."

 Kelvin said that he is not seriously thinking about LSU because he "wants to get real far away from home".

 "I personally feel that it's better to get away from home because you can't run back home when things get tough for you," he stated.

 Kelvin is interested in Penn State as well.

 "Yeah, they're definitely a good school too," he said.  "I wouldn't mind going there for a visit.  I might take an unofficial visit to one of their games.  I like the defense they run.  I've also been reading up on their engineering program and it seems pretty good."

 Coach Norwood is recruiting Kelvin for Penn State.

 Kelvin wants to major in Computer Engineering.

 He attended camps this year at West Virginia, Oklahoma and TCU.
