Tenn. RB gets first offer

Keenan Kolinsky, 6-1, 212-pound running back from Knoxville (Tenn.) Christian Academy, spoke about the recruiting process and his first offer. Find out what Keenan had to say about the schools recruiting him and his upcoming senior season.

Keenan Kolinsky said, "I was offered by Air Force a couple of days ago." He went to say, "I don't know much except it's a great school and you can get a great education. I know they've been playing a lot of big schools lately and doing well. I went to the campus a couple of years ago and I really liked it."

As far as a visit to Air Force Kolinsky said, "I'm really trying to focus right now just on my senior year. I'm looking at other schools too and seeing what's going to happen." He added, "I have a heavy workout schedule and I'm playing summer baseball right now, so I'm not going to be able to make it to any camps."

While he has his first offer from Air Force he commented, "Virginia is talking to me a lot. I'm getting some stuff from Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Yale, and Middle Tennessee."

One of the schools Kolinsky spoke highly of was Vanderbilt. He said, "It's a prestigious college. I like its location because it's close to home. I like the location in Nashville, which is a great city."

Kolinsky also spoke about Tennessee. He explained, "They invited me to the Orange and White game and took a visit down there. That was really nice. I loved Tennessee growing up a Volunteers fan."

Kolinsky, who is also a baseball player, spoke of choosing between football and baseball. He said, "I don't necessarily have one that is ahead of the other. Which ever option gives me the best chance to get the best education."

What makes Kolinsky a good player? He said, "I'm a pretty hard nosed runner and I like to run over people. I'm trying to work on my speed because I feel like I can run over somebody, but I want to be able to run away from the other defenders."

He went on to say of his team, "I think we are going to be pretty strong on offense. Our defense is going to have to have some young guys step it up a little."
