Hollywood (Fla.) South Broward athlete Kevin Grooms is having a big senior season for his Bulldog team. Just this past Friday, he rushed for 161 yards and four touchdowns on 19 carries as his team routed McArthur 52-7 to improve to 4-1 on the season.
With his season well underway, the three-star athlete is starting to plan out his recruitment and that includes some official visits.
"I have got three visits planned for December," Grooms said. "In the first two weeks of December I am going to Louisville, Tennessee, and Kansas State. Those will all be official visits."

As for the remaining two official visits, he has a good idea which two schools will receive those.
"I haven't planned the other two but I think it will be Florida State and Rutgers," Grooms said. "Those are the two most likely right now."
Out of those five schools, one is in more contact than the rest.
"I am hearing a lot from Tennessee," Grooms said. "I am hearing a lot from (Assistant Head) Coach (Charlie) Baggett. We talk about my season, what they are looking for, and why they feel they need me in their recruiting class."
The Volunteers, along with three other schools, want Grooms on offense while one team is looking at him as a possible defensive back.
"Tennessee likes me as a running back," Grooms said. "Florida State likes me as a cornerback. The others like me as a running back."
The 5-foot-10, 170-pound athlete said it doesn't matter to him which position he ends up at when he reaches the college ranks.
"Not really," Grooms said. "I just really want to get on the field as fast as possible. Early playing time is really important to me."
Rivals.com's No. 54 ranked prospect from the Sunshine State doesn't have a specific date in mind for making a decision but said he won't likely rush things.
"I will make a decision after all my visits," Grooms said.
On the season, Grooms has 748 yards and 14 touchdowns on 90 rushing attempts. He also has five receptions for 45 yards. Defensively he has six tackles and an interception. He has scored two touchdowns on special teams as well.
