Bayonne (N.J.) wide receiver Kenny Britt comes from a long line of great Division I prospects to exit the school and like many other top prospects, he will not be taking a short route to a commitment.
Coach Frank Blunda says that amidst the off-season workouts, the conditioning training, and a few trips Britt has been keeping a steady pace on his summer schedule. However, Blunda states that his 6-foot-4, 191-pound receiver will take his time until the moment is right.
"Right now he hasn't made a decision about anything," Blunda said. "He just wants to play, see what kind of offers he gets because he's not committing to anyone right now."
"I've told him to play the season and then go from there."
Britt's father is not only instrumental in his recruiting process but his life. The four-star rated Rivals250 prospect is very close with his father and his coach says that is a driving force in the young man's mind.
"I don't think geographic location is in his mind but I think he is close with his dad," Blunda said. "After speaking with him though, it's mainly wherever he can come in and play relatively early and get a good education. It's not about where it's at."
A visit just took place to the Virginia junior day and Blunda explained that things went well. There is no concrete list of favorites, but a few schools have been mentioned by the star pass-catcher.
"I know he likes Rutgers, Virginia, and Purdue along with some others," Blunda said. "There are a few out there he really likes, but he's got time to figure that out."
Boston College, Wisconsin, Purdue, Kansas, Iowa, Louisville, and Illinois are also schools that have offered Britt, the No. 4 ranked player in the state of New Jersey.
