Dodge City (Kan.) Community College linebacker E.J. Kuale knows which five schools he will be visiting. He even knows which school is in the lead for his talents. But will he tell anyone?
“I’ve got five schools at the top of my list,” the 6-foot-3, 235-pound Kuale said. “I will visit those five and then make a choice. I’ve visited two of them, and will visit the other three over the next three weekends. I have a favorite school. It looks like it would be a really good fit for me. But, I’m not telling anyone what that school is.”
The four-star rated Kuale has already visited LSU and West Virginia. He plans trips to Kansas State (Nov. 21), Florida (Nov. 28) and Arizona State (Dec. 5)
“I had really good visits at both LSU and West Virginia,” the first team All-Jayhawk conference selection said. “They both treated me very well. I am going to compare all of the schools.
“This is my second time taking visits. I did it out of high school and ended up signing with Georgia Tech in 2001. I redshirted there and then transferred to Dodge last year. I will have two years to play beginning next year.”
Kuale plans to find a school that he can play for right away.
“I can sign in December,” he said. “So, I can be there for spring ball. That will give me a leg up to start. I want to find a school I can go start right away for. I need early playing time in a school. I am looking at depth charts of the schools. Finding a place that has an opening is a big factor for me.”
Kuale was a standout on Dodge City’s defense this year. He led the conference with 124 tackles.
“We didn’t do too hot this year,” he said. “We were only 2-7. But, I felt I played well and showed I could play against good teams.”
