UPDATE – Meet Denver Kirkland

Meet Denver Kirkland, an offensive lineman from Miami, Fla. He’s 6’5, 333 pounds, does the shuttle in 5.63 seconds and is a senior at Booker T. Washington High School

Reports from South Florida are that Kirkland is narrowing his college choices down, as we get closer to national signing day on Feb. 6. The report below is he’s got Arkansas in the mix, with Ole Miss and Florida State.

We think you will enjoy his highlight reel below, too.

UPDATE: 2/02/13 (Latest UPDATE below the video)

Omar Kelly, an NFL beat writer for the South Florida Sun- Sentinel had a few things to say about Kirkland via Twitter yesterday. We thought we would share a couple of comments regarding the high school student, who, the word is, has decided he isn’t as interested in the Miami Hurricane as he may have been.

And the latest from Brandon Odoi:

UPDATE 2/02/13 8:35 p.m.

From Miami Herald sportswriter, Manny Navaro:

UM coaches met with Booker T. All-American offensive tackle Denver Kirkland Saturday and his mother, but weren’t able to sway him to commit his stepfather, Shanton Crummie said. …

“In the end we have no bad blood with Coach Golden or UM,” Crummie said. “We understand what happened and they explained why they did what they did. They were hoping they could change his mind, but after talking it out he just decided it was best to move on.”

Crummie said Kirkland will decide between Arkansas and Florida State and make his announcement on Signing Day.
