For 2016 Mainland (Daytona Beach, FL) running back Adrian Killins his college decision is still some time away. And although many feel the 3 star athlete is a heavy University of Miami lean that is simply not the case, “those are just predictions because that was my first big offer but I’m open to anyone right now” Killins said of the assumptions.
It will be some time before we know who his top choices are, “I haven’t named any top schools yet, I will by the end of the summer”.
One school that is making its case to be on that list is West Virginia. The WVU coaching staff has stayed in constant contact with the versatile back, “I hear from them literally every day. I have a great connection with them and I love it, I hear from Coach Seider, Coach DeForest, and Coach Holgorsen”, Killins said of his recruitment from the Mountaineer staff.
While Killins has made numerous visits to other schools he has yet to make his way to Morgantown. That will change this fall when he plans on taking his first official visit. “They continuously have a great program year after year and I love the connection I have with the coaching staff”.
Like most offensive athletes the WVU spread offense is appealing to Adrian, “(I like) the way they spread the ball out and use their “speed demons” he said of Holgorsen’s air raid offense. He also feels the offensive scheme would work well with his abilities, “I would fit in at the RB/Slot position. I can do both…. I have great speed and great hands. I can make plays with the ball in my hands”.
The Mountaineer staff agrees with Adrian telling him they would utilize him as a hybrid rb/slot receiver. “They also said they would like to use me as a punt returner”, Killins said.
Officially clocked at 4.31 seconds in the 40 Killins has the speed and versatility to make plays in the open field. The speedster is also the defending 3A state champion in the 200 meters and only lost the 100 meter by a fraction of a second.
While Adrian will stop short of naming his top schools he is not shy in how he feelings about the Mountaineers, “WVU is in a very great spot so far”.
Adrian plans to take the remainder of the summer to weigh his options before narrowing down his list, “I do not have a set date on which I will commit yet. When I talk things out with my family and coaches I will release where I am going”.
Expect WVU to remain in that discussion moving forward.
