K.T. Mainord Profile

Defensive end K.T. (Kevin Tyler), from Coalmont Grundy County, Tn. visited Colorado this weekend (12/5, host: Chris Russell) and is expecting Coach Barnett to visit him on 12/10. "The atmosphere was great and I felt like I fit in. It's all about football. The whole place loves football and they said I could play early. The stadium was really nice and I like the whole area."

He next visits Auburn on 1/9, Alabama on 1/16 and South Carolina on 1/23 and says he does not have a favorite.

"I'm really open. I want to visit these schools and see who I like the most.

"I like the prestige at Auburn a lot and they play in a great conference and I like the coaches a lot. It's pretty much the same at all five of my schools. They are all real good and have great football tradition."

Tennessee is also in the mix, but he hasn't set up a visit with the Vols. He says that Alabama is recruiting him the hardest and is expecting Coach Shula to visit next week.

All five have offered K.T. and he has 21 total offers.
