Scout Spotlight: Darrin Kirkland

Get to know four-star linebacker and Longhorns target Darrin Kirkland (Indianapolis, IN).

Kirkland (6-foot-1, 228 pounds) de-committed from Michigan not too long ago and has expressed a growing interest in the Longhorns ever since. He'll visit soon.

He is the No. 6 middle linebacker and No. 120 player overall in 2015.

Here's our Scout evaluation of the talented linebacker:

"Very smart, instinctive player who always seems to be in good position and around the football. Takes good angles to the ball, rarely takes false steps and shows good closing ability. Has gotten stronger and thicker over the last year and needs to continue to do that." - Allen Trieu
