DE Kmetz has a big season opener

It was a big season opener for Ijamsville (Md.) Urbana defensive end Colton Kmetz. The 6-foot-5, 220-pounder discussed the season to date as well as touched on his recruitment too.
"We faced Westlake and we lost in double overtime," he said. "My team is looking really good. They are really promising even though we lost a lot of seniors. A lot of juniors have filled the empty spots and we can be another competitor for a state title run."
With regards to his game, Kmetz stepped up with four sacks in the opener.
"I was struggling a bit, getting used to everything, our defensive scheme and once I did, I created some plays," he said. "I'm expecting bigger improvements from me this season. A lot of other team's game plans around which side of the ball I'm at. My coaches have told me I'm going to get double and triple teamed more."
On the recruiting front, Kmetz holds offers from Kent State and Pittsburgh.
"Pittsburgh heard good things about my game along with Kent State and Maryland," he said. "Kent State and Pittsburgh are the two offers still. I'm starting to think about visits. I'm going to see if I can fit it in my schedule during the year, but I don't know when yet."
What are other colleges saying with regards to their interest?
"They all want to see film," he said. "Some of the colleges wanted me to come to camps, but I had a broken hand in the month of June and missed a lot of camps. They are keeping in contact and want me to send film."
