4-star Page Cuts List

A.C. Flora (Columbia, SC) 4-star offensive lineman Kenneth Page has over forty scholarship offers to his credit, but on Monday night he trimmed that list down to ten lucky schools. Read inside for that list and more as Page discusses the latest in his recruitment and talks about his three recent unofficial visits to USC.

The 6'4", 290 pound Page has spent the past several months visiting different campuses and studying what certain schools have to offer in order to make an informed decision when the time came to cut his list of schools down to a reasonable number. That time came on Monday night, and Page discussed which schools made his final ten and why.

"This is in no particular order. Alabama, Clemson, South Carolina, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia Tech, Florida, Maryland, Stanford and Notre Dame," said Page. "I went through all of the schools that I have offers from and looked at the ones I got to visit. Then the ones I didn't get to visit, I did my research on. I felt that these ten schools have all the categories I'm looking for as far as academics, coaching and overall football program."

Now that he has made his first cut, Page plans to be just as thorough in the next phase of his recruitment. With plans to take all five of his official visits, Page is in no hurry to make a decision and is not sure of a timeframe, but he did acknowledge that he could end the recruiting process whenever he feels right about a school.

"I'm going to take my official visits. I don't really have a timeframe (for a decision). I'll make a commitment whenever I feel right about the school I choose."

The in-state Gamecocks are thought to rank highly on Page's list, as the athletic lineman has made three separate unofficial visits to the USC campus over the last week to watch the team practice.

"(The visits) were real good. I like the way they looked at practice. I had a chance to see the coaching staff work, and I was impressed with them. I talked with a few players and stuff. I like South Carolina a lot."

Now turning his attention to his upcoming senior season, Page said he has high expectations for his A.C. Flora team this fall.

"I've set high goals. I won't be satisfied unless we go deep into the playoffs."

Page, who is rated as the #11 offensive guard in the country by Scout.com, was an All-State lineman as a junior. He reports a 3.8 core GPA and a 1060 SAT. He plans to major in finance.
