Kos Talks Recruiting and Camps

We caught up with Holland Christian WR Elias Kos to see what the big wideout's summer plans are, which schools are recruiting him the hardest and what it was like going up against 5-star cornerback Ronald Johnson.

When scouting Muskegon CB Ronald Johnson this year, one player who caught our eye was Elias Kos, Holland Christian's big wide receiver. Although Muskegon would win that game, Kos gave RoJo some problems.

"Ronald was a great player, he had it all," Kos recalled, "I did score twice on him though which was pretty fun. We just wanted to attack right at him because he was the team. We were off to a good start but couldn't keep it going."

Along with that strong effort against the Big Reds, Kos hauled in 32 passes for 640 yards and 12 touchdowns. Couple those stats with his 6'5, 200-lb frame and track speed (he runs the 200m) and Kos has the potential to be a very good college receiver. He has yet to receive any offers, but several schools are hot on his trail.

" I have currently been contacted by Purdue and I went down there for junior day and Nebraska. I get mail from lots of other smaller schools as well."

Kos grew up a big Michigan fan and also had a brother who played for San Diego State, so add those two programs to the list of schools he is interested in. The next step for the big pass catcher will be hitting the camp circuit where he hopes to perform well and earn some offers. Once that happens, it might not be long before Kos pulls the trigger.

" If I got offered, I would like to commit before the season starts so I can focus on the team and not have that thought in the back of my head."

This season could be an interesting one for Kos and the Maroons. With talented quarterback Kirk Cousins graduating and moving on to Michigan State, getting Kos the ball may be tougher than it was a year ago, but he isn't too worried.

" Kirk was one of the best quarterbacks I've ever seen. He had a great arm and feel for the game, and was also a good kid, so I'm going to miss him," Kos said, "Our new quarterback is A.J. Westendorf. He will be a junior next year and the kid has a good arm but you can't really compare him to Kirk just yet. I'll be working with him all summer so we can get our timing down. I think we will be just fine."
