Scout Eval: "Kimbrow is one of the fastest football prospects in the country. He has that initial burst that can't be taught and he is very tough to touch in the open field. His size limits him a bit as a running back, but he is very tough and not afraid to stick it up inside. He needs to really work on catching the football. It is not a natural thing to him. Improving that will make him a lot more valuable, but his speed sets him apart." - Chad Simmons
