Butler County (Kan.) Community College running back Kenny Wilson is one of the nation's top junior college running backs in the Class of 2006. He already is receiving interest from schools across the country, but he isn't getting too caught up in recruiting at this point.
"Things are going really well, I guess," the 6-foot, 225-pound Wilson said. "Coach (Tige) Stone has told me he is getting a lot of mail from schools for me. I don't know if any of them have offered me. The ones I remember are Kansas State, Oklahoma, Auburn, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Florida State and Michigan. I'm sure there are others, but those are the ones I remember."
Wilson, a native of Liberal, Kan., rushed for 895 yards on 127 carries and scored 13 touchdowns during the 2004 season. The Grizzlies finished the season as the NJCAA runner-up, with an 11-1 record.
"I can't wait to get out on the field this fall," Wilson said. "We've got a really good group coming back this year and some good players to add to the team. Things should be really good again for us. I'm ready for the season to get here so we can get out there and start hitting some other people."
Wilson was the No. 14 rated running back in the Class of 2004 and ended up heading to play for Troy Morrell's Grizzlies program.
"I know I made the right choice by coming here," he said. "It's been a great fit since day one. Now, I'm ready to try to get us a title this fall and finish off a good career here."
