Rodney Kinlaw is one of the top backs from the Palmetto State, and he recently narrowed his list of favorites to five. Which schools managed to land a spot on Kinlaw's list?
"My five favorite schools are Virginia Tech, NC State, Clemson, South Carolina, and Penn State," said the 5-foot-10, 180-pound back. "Penn State has starting recruiting me more actively recently, and the others are in contact all the time too."
Kinlaw's Goose Creek (SC) Stratford team is off to a strong start with a 4-0 record. In these contests, Kinlaw has amassed about 700 rushing yards and nine touchdowns with an average of about 10 yards-per-carry. He's recently been clocked running the 40-yard dash in 4.35 seconds, and has great strength for a back.
"I've got offers to a few schools, including Clemson, South Carolina, Penn State, and Tech. NC State hasn't offered yet, but I really hope they do soon. Northwestern was one of my favorites earlier and they're not out of my mind, but they're off to a slow start and I've reconsidered things.
"We're off to a good start this year and I'm putting up some pretty good numbers so far. The record is all that matters, but my performance has probably helped me as far as recruiting goes."
