All four have offered scholarships, along with Idaho. He camped this summer at WSU and UW and took unofficial visits to Northwesterna nd Oregon State.
"I went to camp at Washington State on June 26 and really liked the coaching staff, and it's a great location -- it felt good being over there. Coaches (Mike) Walker (DL) and (Mike) Levenseller (offensive coordinator) also liked the way I played. I really liked the atmosphere over there and the fact that Pullman is a college town," Alfred said.
"Washington is about 45 minutes away as opposed to Washington St which is more like five or six hours away--so its close to home and it's a well-known school. The program there will be coming back real strong overall I think and coaches (Keith)Gilbertson, (Randy) Hart (DL) and (Charlie) Dickey (OL) really seem to like what I'd have to offer to the program there. Plus I like Seattle because it's a big city with lots of things to do and it would never get stale.
"I'm impressed with the coaching staff at Oregon State. I like the environment over there and I felt that I got comfortable with coaches (Mike) Riley and (LaCharls) McDaniel (TEs) when I visited there in mid-June. They like me as a player and want me to go there."
"Northwestern has high academics and a 100 percent graduate rate for their football players," says Alfred. "I also like the fact that it's a Big Ten school. I've talked with coaches (Randy) Walker, (James) Patton (OL) and (Mike)Dunbar (off coord) and they like the way that I play a lot. They say I play with a lot of aggression and think I'd be a good fit there."
Kenny says he'll wait until after the season to officially visit. Washington, Washington State and Oregon State are also recruiting him for track and field in the discus and shot-put events--though none have offered any scholarships.
