Frank honest about offers

Kenny Frank is a 6-0, 190-pound athlete from Cerritos, California and you can't call Kenny a sleeper. What might be harder to gauge is which side of the line he'll play in college but one thing is already clear - colleges are lining up to get a crack at his signature on a letter-of-intent.

"For some reason I find myself being able to get through the line," Frank told about his ability to block kicks. He blocked 6 as a junior. He accounted for over 2200 all-purpose yards as a back for Cerritos, and had 6 picks and 97 tackles last year. As a sophomore, he led his team in tackles with 107 stops. He runs a 4.5 40, jumps 30 inches in the vertical jump and benches 280 pounds.

So where should he play? Kenny isn't the only one that's not quite sure. "I've talked to a lot of coaches and they haven't made up their mind which side of the ball I would be playing on but I think I'll be playing defense," he said. "The way I figure it, when I go to a school and they need a defensive back then I will be more than willing to do that and if they need an offensive back I'll do that too. Wherever I can fit into the program."

Kenny plays both cornerback and safety, but likes the freedom free safety brings. "I kind of like free safety more, because I can work both sides of the field," he said. "I can cover man. As a sophomore I led the team with 107 tackles, so I'm not scared of coming up into a hole and hitting a running back."

Oregon, Arizona, Cal and LSU are the colleges that have been recruiting Frank the hardest lately and he's already set up trips to two of them. "The first one is to Cal on 10/19 and then Oregon on 10/26," he said. Kenny will visit LSU and also Arizona for sure.

He has 9 offers on the table right now - Washington, Oregon, Cal, ASU, Arizona, LSU, Colorado, Kansas and Northwestern. "I was surprised when it first started happening but now I've adjusted to it," Kenny said of the attention he's received and the offers that have already been tendered.

So where do the Huskies fit in to Frank's plans? "They told me that they were still very interested in me and that they want me to take a good, serious look at them and to set up a trip to visit there. I've been there before but I don't have any family in the Northwest."

Kenny claims no leaders at this point and he's keeping his options open.
