Kendricks focused on four

Milwaukee King wide receiver has taken two official visits; has two more planned

Lance Kendricks, a 6-foot-5, 205-pound class of 2006 wide receiver prospect at Milwaukee King, has taken official visits to LSU (Oct. 21) and Arkansas (Nov. 4) and plans to take official trips to Wisconsin (Dec. 2) and UCLA.

"We scheduled UCLA for January, like early January, but not a specific date," Kendricks said in a telephone interview Sunday. "They are supposed to call back this week to give me a date. I'm not sure yet."

Kendricks might not take his fifth official visit. LSU, Arkansas, Wisconsin and UCLA are clearly his four favorites at this point and he is not ready to distinguish between them.

"I haven't even seen UCLA," he said. "I don't know anything about it. I'm kind of waiting to see what that's like.

"Wisconsin, I pretty much know a lot about it but I know that official visits are a lot different from just going to see stuff."

Kendricks has attended several football games at Camp Randall this season, including the Badgers' home loss to Iowa Saturday. After the game UW honored head coach Barry Alvarez, who will retire from coaching following this season.

Kendricks grew up cheering for Wisconsin, but many of the moments displayed on the video boards to honor Alvarez's 16 seasons were before his time.

"I remember when Ron Dayne played," he said. "I remembered watching those. But I don't really remember too much before that. Like, I remember Jamar Fletcher and all those."

Saturday's game was marked by cool temperatures and intermittent rain. Kendricks said the weather was not a big deal.

"It wasn't that cold, but when it rained, then it got cold," he said. "It rained on and off throughout the whole game."

Until recently, Kendricks had been looking into taking an official visit to Oklahoma. What is the latest with the Sooners?

"I'm not sure," Kendricks said. "I haven't spoken to them in a while."

Lately, Kendricks has been receiving mail and invitations to games from Michigan. He was invited to the Wolverines home game versus Indiana last week, but he had already planned on attending the game in Madison.

"Michigan's been sending me letters and game invitations lately, like within the past couple weeks," Kendricks said. "I don't know where that's going. I haven't talked to them on the phone yet, so I'm not sure."

Kendricks said his mom called the Michigan staff to see if he could attend this week's marquee game against Ohio State, but she was told that they may not have any more tickets available for recruits.
