RB Sets Four Visits

Rodney Kinlaw, nephew of Penn State great Courtney Brown, has set up four of his five official visits. Does he have a leader?

Name: Rodney Kinlaw
Position: RB
Height: 5'10"
Weight: 185 pounds
40-yard dash: 4.36 at Clemson camp
Bench Press: 315 pounds
School: Stratford HS, Goose Creek, SC

Rodney led Stratford to 13 straight wins this season before the Knights fell to Rock Hill in the playoffs, 17-0.

"I had 202 carries, something like that, for 1,783 yards and 30 touchdowns," Rodney said.

"I have an official visit to Clemson on January 10.  I have Penn State this weekend.  North Carolina State is January 17, Virginia Tech is January 24 and I'm still trying to decide where I'm going to fit USC in.  I'll probably try to take that on a weekday.

"They're pretty much even.

"I have the Shrine Bowl on December 21.  We have to be up there on the 14th and practice the whole week."

The Shrine Bowl matches the best of South Carolina against the best of North Carolina.

According to Rodney, Penn State is recruiting him as a running back.  His parents will accompany him on his official visit to State College this weekend.

"I like the environment and the coaching staff mainly, the academic level, the tradition of the school and Joe Paterno."

Rodney attended camps this summer at South Carolina, Clemson and Virginia Tech. He attended a summer camp with his father at Penn State after his sophomore year.
