Linebacker Tim Kimbrough is the top junior prospect on a talent-rich Indianapolis (Ind.) Warren Central team. The 6-1, 216-pound linebacker entered the fall with two offers, and just recently added a third team to that list.
"I think Cincinnati offered me after the Cathedral game," Kimbrough said. "I think if I were to go there, I would get some help from my teammates because we have players that are going there."
Cincinnati has three prospects from Warren Central committed to them in the 2012 class - running back Deionte Buckley, defensive end Jonathan Burt and offensive guard Deyshawn Bond.
North Carolina and Purdue were the first schools to offer Kimbrough. He also feels good about the interest he has received from Iowa recently.
"Iowa, I'd like to see them and I think they will probably offer me in a little while," Kimbrough said. "They have been sending me a lot of mail."
Teams from across the country continue to show strong interest in Kimbrough, and he plans to check out several this fall for home games.
"I know I'm going to the LSU-Tennessee game [Oct. 15]," Kimbrough said. "Next week I don't know what game I'm going to, but my coach said he would take me to a game. I want to go see a Notre Dame game this year, but I don't know who they play next week."
Warren Central started off the year as the No. 3 team in the country by RivalsHigh. They have dropped to No. 17 after a couple close games, but Kimbrough feels his team is handling the pressure of high expectations well this fall.
"I think we are handling it real well," Kimbrough said. "We know how to play with adversity now because we've had two close games."
On the season, Kimbrough has collected approximately 60 total tackles. He registered 12 solo tackles and six assists in Warren Central's most recent game.
