Kentavius Street is starting to generate a lot of buzz on the recruiting trail. The Rose High (Greenville, N.C.) defensive end already has multiple scholarship offers and several other schools are showing interest.

The 2014 class in the state of North Carolina is shaping up to be a good one. One prospect that has flown somewhat under-the-radar is Kentavius Street. However, Street’s recruitment is beginning to heat up.

“Recruiting – I’ve been getting a bunch of letters from Ohio State, Virginia Tech, Duke UNC, ECU, and N.C. State,” said the 6-foot-4, 260-pound Street. “I’ve also heard from Georgia and Florida State, Clemson, and Louisville – it’s been great.”

“I have offers from Virginia Tech, Duke, ECU, Old Dominion, and N.C. State,” he said. “Duke and Louisville are recruiting me the hardest."

He has talked to one school frequently.

“I’ve talked to the coaches at Duke a lot – Coach (David) Cutcliffe, the defensive line coach (Rick Petri), and the linebackers coach (Jim Collins),” Street said.

He has already visited Duke and with the season over, Street will likely take another visit in the near future.

“I’m really trying to get up to Virginia Tech,” he said. “I’ve heard about the team’s entrance and how it is on game day. I really want to experience that.”

The defensive lineman knows what he is looking for in a school.

“I really want to be an engineer, so I’m hoping that the school has a great mechanical engineering program,” he said. “As far as a football program, I want to play for a team that is going to stick together and plays hard every game.”

Despite the interest from schools, recruiting is not Street’s main concern at this time.

“I’m not really focused on recruiting yet,” said Street. “I really want to focus on that during my senior year. I think I’m going to make my decision right at the end of my senior season.”

Street runs bench presses 345 pounds, squats 625, and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.57 seconds.

Update: Since this interview, Street has picked up offers from Maryland and Tennessee.
