The rangy, 6-foot-1 defensive back took his official visit to SMU last weekend. How did it go?
"It was really nice," he said. "Everyone made me feel welcome. My host was Richard Crawford and I mostly hung out with him, Rodney Hubert, Christian Holloway, Ronnell Sims, and Darius Johnson. I didn't want to go home."
Did Kitchen and Hubert - both cornerbacks - discuss trade secrets or talk a little friendly trash about who does the best job in coverage?
"We didn't talk about anything like that," he said. "The guys just talked about going out there and playing well over the next few years."
Kitchen was recruited by SMU wide receivers coach Jeff Reinebold.
"Coach Reinebold is a really nice guy who has always made sure that I get everything done," said Kitchen. "He's always had my best interests in mind."
