Marrero (La.) Ehret wide receiver prospect Kendrick Ussin has been a big part of his team’s 9-0 start to the season, playing as a dual-threat quarterback. Now, the San Diego State pledge wants to put him deeper into tunnel vision heading deeper into the playoffs.
“We have a game against New Alberia this weekend,” Ussin said. “It’s going to be tough, but we’re 9-0, so I think we’ll be fine. And I’m always a threat to any team on the field. I’m a weapon with my feet or my arm, so I’m always a threat.”
Ussin said that his commitment to the Aztecs is solid, though he has been talking to a few other schools.
“I committed to San Diego State because I looked up the school on the computer and I checked out the team,” he said. “I liked them, so I committed. I’m going to visit there after the season for sure, and I think Coach Peterson [wide receivers coach Ray] is excited about me getting up there.
“I’m still talking to Louisville, Texas A&M, Southern Miss, Indiana and Auburn. I have offers from Louisville and Indiana, but I’m not really thinking about them. I’m not planning any visits except the one to San Diego. I’ll probably take that one in December, and I’m excited about it. I’m playing receiver there, and I think I’ll do really good there.”
Ussin has racked up eight touchdowns heading into the second round of the playoffs. He has recorded a 4.43-second 40-yard dash.
