Kylie Fitts plays some defensive end, some linebacker, and the 2013 prospect said it all depends where his coach wants him to line up. The Redlands (Calif.) East Valley recruit is that talented and schools are taking notice.
Fitts, a 6-foot-3, 245-pound recruit, had a bunch of tackles in his team's victory over Norco last weekend in the first round of the playoffs. Another big opponent, Rancho Cucamonga, awaits Friday night.
He's the top defender on his undefeated Redlands East Valley and things continue to go well this season.

"That was a great win," Fitts said of the 20-15 win over Norco. "Everybody played as a team and when we do that we're unstoppable. It's great to be 11-0. We've just been playing as a team these past few weeks and it's really helped us.
"My coach always sets me up wherever the ball is going to go whether it's coming off the edge or coming up the middle. That's why I can play defensive end or play some linebacker."
Boise State and UCLA have already offered Fitts, who said not much has changed in his recruitment in recent weeks and he's still hearing from USC, Washington, Cal and others so far.
"It's been the same," Fitts said. "I'm really focused on finishing out the season."
Because it's still so early in his recruitment, and his junior season is still going strong, Fitts said he's looking at both UCLA and Boise State equally and is open to more offers.
Fitts said USC is an early favorite and that he might be close to more offers.
"It's a little early right now but I have a lot of interest in both of them," Fitts said. "I like UCLA a lot and I like Boise a lot. I talk with the recruiters for our area and I like both of those schools a lot."
