Alex Kline, the junior running back and outside line backer out of Cerritos (Calif.) Gahr is patiently awaiting his first offer and is busy gearing up for spring ball.
The 5’11 and 210-pound athlete says the three main schools that are showing him interest are Tennessee, Boise State and Missouri.
Kline says he has already been talking with the Vols about attending their spring practice.
“I have been talking with the coaches at Tennessee a lot lately. They invited me to come out there this spring, for their spring game on April 21st,” explained Kline. “I am hoping that will work out, so I am just trying to work out all the details.”
The other two programs on Kline’s radar are Washington and Utah, mainly because two of his teammates committed to those schools. Dwayne Washington, who is headed to Washington and Delshawn McClellon, who will suit up for the Utes this fall.
Kline says both of his teammates have already started recruiting him for their respective school.
“Both Delshawn and Dwayne are trying to keep it in the family,” said Kline. “I know coaches from Washington and Utah will be down here in the spring, which I am excited about”
After watching his teammates go through their recruitment process and all the festivities pertaining to National Signing Day, Kline says he can’t wait for his turn.
“It was crazy seeing everything they went through, it looked like so much fun,” said Kline. “Hopefully it will be me next year. Our coaches do a great job of putting us on the radar, so once spring hits I think I will start to get more looks.”
The attention Kline has received so far has been because of his skills on both offense and defense. Kline said, “For the most part I am being recruited as an athlete. I play both ways for Gahr, but I have been working on my footwork a lot because my coaches are converting me to play strong safety next year. I like it so far. If that’s where they need me, that’s where I will play.”
