Kennion; Committed but Getting Offers

Jacksonville (Fla.) First Coast High School defensive end prospect is committed to Auburn but is still picking up new scholarship offers. The 6-foot-6 and 225-pound defender recently picked up two in-state offers.

Jacksonville (Fla.) First Coast High School defensive end prospect Raashed Kennion has been committed to Auburn since this summer but the senior continues to pick up new scholarship offers. The 6-foot-6 and 225-pound prospect has picked up two new offers from a pair of in-state schools.

"Besides offers from FIU and FAU there is nothing new as far as recruiting is concerned," said Kennion. The tall, athletic end had been committed to Cincinnati before receiving the Auburn offer after making an unofficial visit to the Alabama plains earlier this summer.

"I am committed, they're still coming though," said Kennion when asked if he was still a firm commitment despite continuing to be offered scholarships by other schools.

The list of schools that have offered the talented defender include Georgia Tech, Iowa State, Memphis, Middle Tennessee, Pittsburgh, South Florida and UCF.

"The atmosphere, I love the coaching staff, the people. I am already calling the people at Auburn family," said Kennion prior to the start of the 2013 season in regards to his commitment.
