After taking two visits this fall, three-star defensive tackle Kenny Love, Jr. from Pennington (N.J.) The Pennington School went home over the Christmas break and began to weigh his options. It didn’t take long for him to see which school was the best for him, and after a lot of thought, he gave his pledge to Indiana.
“I committed to them last week,” Love explained. “It was a nice school. I liked everything, and it made me feel good.”
While he will be attending school on an athletic scholarship, it was the academic side that really sold him on the school.
“Their education system really stood out to me,” he commented. “The academics are really good. They have like the best business program in the country.
“The academics helped me decide, but I also liked to coaches and players.”
Love stands 6-foot-3, weighs 275 pounds, and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.9 seconds. He is rated the nation’s No. 52 defensive tackle by Rivals.com after recording 69 tackles and nine sacks as a senior.
