Hilliard (Ohio) Darby class of 2013 linebacker Cameron Kohl had a strong campaign as a sophomore, and is building on that performance in his junior season. The attention from colleges has increased in relation, and Kohl plans to reciprocate with two fall game day visits.
"I have some visits coming up to Wisconsin and Tennessee," Kohl reported. "Those are the two schools I will be going to games at this year."
Wisconsin will be the first school Kohl visits this fall. He plans on attending the Badger's home contest on Oct. 1 against Nebraska.
"That's going to be a great game," Kohl said. "I like the Badgers a lot. The coaching staff is terrific and I like the way they run their defense. They showed me great interest and are sending me mail a couple times a week. My parents are coming up to meet the coaching staff."
Kohl will be heading down to Knoxville the weekend of Oct. 15 to see Tennessee's big home matchup in Neyland Stadium against SEC rival LSU.
"Coach [Peter] Sirmon, the recruiting coach, is really excited about me coming down there and he's been handwriting me letters asking how the season is going," Kohl said.
Other schools showing consistent interest in Kohl include Boston College, Ohio University, Akron, Nebraska and Vanderbilt.
The 6-1, 218-pound Kohl has been playing both fullback and linebacker for Hilliard Darby this fall, but colleges are looking at him exclusively on defense thus far.
"I moved positions from last year, from the SAM to the WILL 'backer. That gives me more responsibility," he said. "We had our middle linebacker get injured this past week, so coaches gave me the responsibility for the defense and I'm going to be calling the calls out there. I've always been a leader out there for my team, now I just need to step up."
