    South Carolina, Louisville and Ohio State are the schools that have been calling Kearney the most. All 3 have offered. He also has offers from Mississippi, Maryland and Mississippi St.

    South Carolina(visiting 1/7) and Ohio State(visiting 1/14) are his leaders at this point. He had 97 solo tackles during his senior year and 18 sacks.

    Just from reading those articles, I can't help but think of current Buckeye Curtis Terry. Roughly the same measurables and stats.

    Pretty funny how this late in the recruiting process a new name like this pops up.

    I think Kearney may be a bit bigger/hevier than Terry is (isn't Curtis a slight 205-210?). But, I do like this kid and think he could be a major player for us, as tsafety or at OLB. He comes up for a visit and maybe we can get Anderson to call him, or even Carlos Thomas if Thomas does decide on us. We could use nother LB with James and Spitler and, hopefully, McCoy. He has legit speed and a olis dframe at 220lbs. Perfect fit if you ask me.

    Kearney's favorites at this point are South Carolina, Ohio State and Louisville. He really likes the Buckeye staff, the fact Ohio State puts so many people in the NFL and he thinks he can play early here. He has visits scheduled to Ohio State and South Carolina and will likely visit Louisville.

    If we take this kid and Rico...that means Lenix is a S right?

    IIRC Lenix stated OSU was recruiting him as a S or RB.

    Kearney has made his final list: Florida, South Carolina, Ohio State, Maryland, and North Carolina. SC and UNC already have scheduled visits. If tOSU or Florida offer, he will visit both. Right now, tOSU is maintaining steady contact through Coach Tucker, but it is a numbers game. Tucker is supposed to call Kearney Monday with a final decision on an offer.

    Kearney enjoyed his visit to South Carolina. He enjoyed facilities, coaches, and the Columbia area. He did not commit and plans to visit tOSU this weekend (1/14). tOSU and SC are in the lead but Georgia and Louisville have come in late.

    to futher add to the drama, the coaches were spposed to call him with an offer this week, and if so, he would visit. he plays OLB like mccoy. mccoy was supposedly going to inform the coaches of his decision before he went to the AA game.

    i'll let you speculate from here.

    Final Four list: Georgia, tOSU, Florida, and South Carolina. Kearney is scheduled to visit tOSU this weekend. He has offers from all schools in his final four except Georgia. The SC trip is being used to gauge his other visits but the implied impression is that Tavares is expecting more. He is still setting up a visit with UF and waiting to hear from UGA.
