Last week, Christian Kirk and his family left the Arizona heat for a whirlwind tour of the SEC in the hopes that they'd receive some clarity in his recruitment. With 38 scholarship offers, Kirk — 247Sports.com's 5th-ranked wide receiver — certainly has a difficult choice to make. This morning, the 5-foot-11, 195-pounder from Scottsdale has cut his list by nearly 75-percent to ten, and the Buckeyes made the list.
Kirk's list is comprised of eight schools he's visited and two he's not yet been to, and includes four schools from the SEC, three of which he visited last week for the first time. Here now is the top ten schools for Saguaro High School's Christian Kirk, presented in alphabetical order.
- Arizona State
- Ohio State
- Texas A&M
Kirk's highlights tapes border on the ridiculous, and when you check it out, you'll know why he's one of the most sought-after playmakers in the country.
The fleet-footed Kirk hopes to make his college choice in late November and is working towards enrolling at his school of choice in January. Of his final ten schools, he's visited everyone except for Oklahoma and Stanford, but he does plan on making trips to Norman and Palo Alto when able.
Currently, the 247Sports.com "Crystal Ball" reads 82-percent for Texas A&M, but Kirk says he has no leader at present.
