Schools are taking notice of Vienna (Va.) Madison tight end Harry Kehs. The 6-foot-4, 237-pounder is receiving a variety of looks from the ACC, Big East and Big Ten. Does he have any favorites?
"I'm getting interest from Maryland, Boston College, Northwestern, North Carolina State and Cincinnati mostly," he said. "Nobody has offered me yet, but I did grow up a big fan of Penn State. My uncle went there and he raves about the camaraderie, my mom also went there. I love the student body and atmosphere. I've been up for a few football games."
While he's a lifelong fan of Penn State, Kehs is fond of the ACC as well.
"I grew up liking all of the ACC teams especially for basketball," he said. "I actually recently went to Maryland on a junior day. It was awesome. The facilities there are amazing and I got to talk to coach Friedgen and the rest of the staff. Basically they were saying how they want me to come for camp for further evaluation and then they'll make a move after that."
One other visit the junior prospect recently went on was to Northwestern.
"My dad had a business trip out there and I went to the school, it was nothing serious," he said. "They are rebuilding the program, but they have great academics."
Plenty of schools are showing interest in Kehs, but what does he want out of a college?
"I'm looking for a good academic school and a great environment," he said. "I also want a great student body to be around and it would be nice to have a medical school since I want to do orthopedic surgery, but I can work around that. As far as location, it doesn't matter how far it is."
This spring, Kehs plans to participate in the Baltimore Nike Camp.
Last year he registered 50 tackles and four sacks on his way to first team all-district and all-Gazette.
