Kyle also spoke about each of those three programs in stating "Florida State has a great programm and is relatively close to home,Cincinnati has a great engineering program and they won the Big East the last 3 years,and UCONN is also very strong academically and I can probably get some early playing time."
As for which schools are recruiting him the hardest Kyle says "I would say UCONN,Cincinnati,and Florida Atlantic are recruiting me the hardest." One staff member has stood out from one of those schools in Coach (George) DeLeone of UCONN "Because he has coached in the NFL." according to the Ft. Lauderdale (FL) OL.
