Washington, D.C. defensive tackle Kevin McReynolds anxious to learn about Auburn

by Brooks Webb, Senior Writer,

For Kevin McReynolds, there aren’t many more schools left to offer him that he doesn’t already have a full ride waiting on the table from. When asked what the total was up to, he calmly replied, “Forty-one.”

He has forty-one scholarship offers from some of the top programs in the country, and Auburn is one of them. “I haven’t been able to visit yet. I definitely want to learn more about the program and see how I could fit in there,” said McReynolds. “I talk to Coach Thigpen a lot. He’s a real laid back coach. I talked to Coach Rocker a few times, but I haven’t really had a chance yet to build much of a relationship with any of the coaches so far.

Top 3 or Top 5 isn’t in McReynolds vocabulary per say, but he has already committed to three official visits in the fall. “I told the coaches at Oregon, North Carolina, and Arkansas that I would definitely be back for an official visit. As far as the summer goes, I’m going to probably go to Oregon, UCLA and USC, Arizona State, and I’m going to try to get to Auburn as well, I just don’t know when,” he continued.

McReynolds is clearly highly sought after, but he says there is still room for improvement. “I’d like to get better with my technique and be more of a technician in how I come off of blocks and how I play the game,” he said. Where he ends up, he’s not even sure, but he knows distance won’t be a factor in any way. “Being from D.C., distance isn’t a problem either way. It will come down to where I feel comfortable the most out of all the schools,” McReynolds added.

There’s also another big thing McReynolds wants out of a school, and it isn’t what most recruits look for when deciding where to play football. “I want to go somewhere that has great structure, but most importantly somewhere that has a really strong business school. It’s my thing, and I’m passionate about business. Football is just a means to get an education. The degree is my ticket outside of football, and I want to get it so I can eventually start up my own entertainment company,” said McReynolds.

It’s not often that you hear that, but McReynolds is going to make sure he is thorough with examining schools, and finds the best fit for him. His decision date is undecided, but he said it could be at the Under-Armour All-American Game, or on National Signing Day.
