Tampa (Fla.) Tampa Bay Tech offensive tackle Kilu Fontaine claims five offers - Bethune-Cookman, Eastern Illinois, Florida A&M, North Carolina Central, and Tennessee State - as well as interest from Jacksonville State and Samford. With July halfway finished, Fontaine says he is still in the early stages of his recruitment.
"I have been talking with the coaches and doing research on my own," Fontaine said. "This summer I did visit North Carolina Central, but they are really the only school I have visited so far."
The 6-foot-5, 262-pound offensive lineman talked about his time on campus at the MEAC school located in Durham, North Carolina.
"It was a good visit," Fontaine said. "I learned the history of their program, what they are about, and what they are trying to do. I learned about their players, their system, and what they are looking for in football players."
This weekend he is supposed to visit another MEAC program.
"I am supposed to be going to a camp at Bethune-Cookman this Saturday," Fontaine said. "I am planning on going as of right now."
With regards to naming an early leader, Fontaine isn't in a rush to do so as he says he needs to see more schools in-person and also is hoping for additional interest throughout his senior season.
"It is too early right now," Fontaine said. "I am going to take my official visits and hopefully learn from them. I am also hoping that after my season, the bigger schools are going to come calling."
