Rivals250 offensive lineman Kenneth Page has taken a inquisitive approach when attempting to narrow his list of schools. The Columbia (S.C.) A.C. Flora standout as more than three dozen offers from multiple programs from coast to coast. In this interview with Rivals.com, he gives a complete update on his recruitment.
South Carolina's two in-state programs, Clemson and South Carolina, are in hot pursuit of the state's top offensive line prospect. Brad Scott is recruiting Page for the Tigers while David Reaves is the recruiter of record for the Gamecocks.
"South Carolina and Clemson are recruiting me the hardest I'd have to say," Page said. "After the unofficial visit I took to South Carolina, I learned more about their program and I became more interest in them than I was.
"I am still loving Clemson."
The Tigers were the early leaders for Page, who will narrow his list to 10 by the "end of the summer."
Though he won't be making an unofficial visit there this summer, Page said Notre Dame will likely be one of the schools that gets an official visit from him. Irish offensive line coach John Latina and head coach Charlie Weis have both been in contact with Page.
This week, the nation's seventh-ranked offensive guard prospect will take a tour of the Mid-Atlantic region as he checks out three of the better programs in that area.
"I am up in Maryland right now visiting my father," Page said. "I am going to Maryland, Penn State and West Virginia while I am up here."
The 6-foot-4, 293-pounder will be in College Park on Tuesday, State College on Thursday and Morgantown on Saturday.
Page also hopes to visit Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Clemson as the summer winds down.
"I don't exactly know which schools I am going to go see," he said. "I am going to try to knock out Alabama and Auburn in the same weekend."
"I don't really know much about the Alabama program," he said. "But I hope to get down there and learn more. I have been in contact with Auburn and have talked to coach Price."
Page is a four-star rated prospect and the No. 5 overall prospect in the Palmetto State according to Rivals.com.
