2014 Greenville (N.C.) Rose defensive end Kentavious Street spent his entire junior season focusing primarily on football, with recruiting on the back burner. Now that things have wrapped up, he's ready to start looking around.
Street already has a pretty impressive list of offers, including Clemson, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia Tech. So who is the early leader for the 6-foot-4, 255-pounder?
"So far I'm really starting to lean towards Clemson," Street said. "Their coaching staff is like a family and so far they're standing out above the rest."
Street has been in regular contact with Tigers Associate Head Coach Dan Brooks, and said he's hoping to make it down for a visit on Saturday.
In his first season of playing in North Carolina after moving from Georgia following his sophomore year, Street had 81 tackles, eight sacks, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, two blocked kicks and one defensive touchdown.
"The competition in North Carolina compared to Georgia is a little easier," he said. "I came from a 6-A school in Georgia and I'm playing at 4-A school now so it was easier to make the transition."
With his season in the books, Street said he's focused on having a solid offseason so he can lead his team the playoffs next year. He's also planning on catching up on some of the visits he missed this fall.
"I'm going to go to a lot of junior days in the spring," he said. "I know I'm going to visit with all these schools offering me."
