The Woodlands, Texas defensive end Kevin Mims took his second official visit and it will most likely be his last.
“The visit to Northwestern went real well,” the 6-foot-4, 245-pound Mims said. “I enjoyed the win over Penn State. I got to sit in the snow for a while. I got to see how cold it could be.
“The guys I met and talked to were really nice. I really enjoyed everything. The academic side of the school was great and obviously they are winning again. They are 5-5 and that helps. They are on the rise, I think.”
After visiting Texas Tech last weekend and Northwestern this weekend, does the three-star rated end have a favorite?
“I’m not going to put one school at the top,” he said. “Northwestern is definitely up there. But both them and Texas Tech offer a lot of positives.”
A decision for Mims could come anytime, but his father has set a date for the process to be over.
“My dad and I have talked. I will make my decision by Dec. 13. I probably won’t be taking any other visits. If another school pops up between now and then, I’ll have to research it as much as I can and go from there. I’m still looking at Utah and Colorado State because they are good offers. But, if I really needed to, I could take one that weekend, then come home and decide.”
Mims has helped The Woodlands to a 10-0 start on the season. They prepare for the first round of playoffs this week against Jersey Village.
