Kimbrow has three on top

Brian Kimbrow

East HS (Memphis, TN) star Brian Kimbrow is arguably the top 2012 prospect in the state. The 5-9, 165 pound RB already has 31 offers from schools such as Auburn, LSU, Notre Dame, Oregon, Tennessee, and Vanderbilt. Kimbrow recently shared with VandyMania.com which three schools currently lead the way.

"Vanderbilt is one school that I like right now," said Kimbrow. "Vanderbilt, Cincinnati, and Auburn are my top schools and I can't say who I like the most out of those three. I like those three a lot right now."

Kimbrow is the most familiar with Vanderbilt as he has visited them four times.

"I know the [Vanderbilt] coaches and I like the campus and the area. I like the players there too," he said.

Cincinnati is a school that also stands out for Kimbrow but he has yet to visit their campus.

"I like the [Cincinnati] coaches but I need to visit the campus," said Kimbrow. "I'm supposed to do that sometime next month."

Rounding out his top three, Kimbrow also likes what the defending national champions have to offer.

"I like the [Auburn] coaches and I got to meet some of the players there," he said. "I like the things that they do there."

Despite having three favorites, Kimbrow says one school is currently recruiting him the hardest.

"Vanderbilt is recruiting me the hardest right now," said Kimbrow. "They send me a lot of mail and the coaches talk to me on facebook and on the phone a lot."

Growing up Kimbrow grew up a fan of the Miami Hurricanes. Recently, there was some speculation that an offer from Miami would put them at the top of his list. He says that is not the case.

"I grew up liking the University of Miami," he said. "On some article somebody said that if I got an offer from them that they would maybe move to the top. I didn't say that."

While there is some uncertainty about which school he will ultimately pick, Kimbrow is certain in what he is looking for in a school.

"I'm looking for a good coaching staff, academics, a good football program, and a place where I can feel like I am at home," he said.

With the school year wrapping up, Kimbrow has a number of visits on the horizon. He has not set an exact date for his decision but he does know that it will be sometime soon.

"I don't know when I will make my decision but it should be soon," said Kimbrow. "I visit Tennessee on the 5th, and Vanderbilt on the 7th. I am also visiting Miami (FL), Florida State, Clemson, North Carolina, Cincinnati, Michigan State, and some other schools that I can't think of right now."
