Defensive end Colton Kmetz has concluded his senior season. It was a big year for the 6-foot-5, 220-pounder. Now, Kmetz is looking ahead to his recruitment with his first official visit this weekend.
"I'm still getting numerous emails from colleges and mailed letters," he said. "I've set an official to Kent State this weekend, December 2nd, 3rd and 4th."
What does the two-star prospect want to see on his first trip?
"I'm just hoping to see a great campus. I hope the tour I get helps me make my decision. I want to see the best out of this school."
Kmetz has no other trips scheduled at this time, but is working to set up an official to Pittsburgh.
Meanwhile, Kmetz is receiving interest from Maryland, East Carolina, Marshall, West Virginia and Virginia.
Does he like anybody?
"I don't really have a favorite, I'm just going to pick the one that is best for me."
The season has closed for Kmetz and Urbana as he's posted approximately 14 sacks on the year.
"I'm pretty sure I led the team in tackles, I also had two blocked punts and a blocked field goal. I had a lot of tackles for loss too. I led the team there too."
It was such a productive year for the lineman that he received an invite to play in the Crab Bowl all-star game.
"I went to a meeting a couple weeks ago and they told me. I was very excited about it. I'm working out and conditioning, come December 12th I'll be ready for our first practice," he stated. "I just want to go prove myself that I'm a great pass rusher. I want to be able to help a college team that picks me up. I know there are three other defensive ends on my team in the Crab Bowl. I want to go there, work hard and earn one of those starting spots."
