Mamou (La.) wide receiver Kendrick Celestine has two official visits in mind and is eyeing a couple of additional programs.
The 5-foot-11, 173-pounder, who is rated as the state of Louisiana's No. 23 overall prospect and the nation's No. 55 wide receiver prospect, will definitely see a Big 12 and a Southeastern Conference campus.
"I set up an official visit for Colorado for the first weekend after we lose in the playoffs," he said. "That's when I am going to visit there."
He will head to the state of Alabama at a later date.
"Auburn is the weekend of Jan. 5 if I am not mistaken," he said. "I have to call coach Greg Knox and confirm."
This season, Celestine has stayed close to home for his unofficial visits.
"I went to the LSU-Kentucky game at LSU," Celestine said. "They aren't really saying too much about an offer. They are waiting to see my senior highlight tape. I'm going to make my senior highlight tape, so I am going to send them my senior highlight tape and them and the University of Miami."
Every program in the hunt is under consideration.
"I think everybody is pretty much even," he said. "I want to see what the atmosphere is. I really want to go visit all of them.
"I'm really trying to get in touch with the wide receivers coach with the University of Miami. It's Colorado, LSU, Auburn or the University of Miami."
Celestine split time at quarterback and receiver last season, but has played one position full time this year.
"I've been playing wide receiver the entire year this year," he said. "I played quarterback last year, but we had a quarterback move into our program, so I moved to receiver full time."
Celestine, who has confirmed 4.4-second 40-yard-dash time, also projects as a kick returner, but hasn't had the chance to do so much this season.
"Every team we played has kicked a pooch kick," he said.
Celestine is a three-star rated prospect.
