Franklin, OH (Future150) -- The Class of 2015 is still a long way away as far as college goes, but it’s never too early to get started, right?
Just ask Luke Kennard, a rising sophomore at Franklin High School (Franklin, Ohio) who has a plethora of schools on him right now.
“It has been a great summer,” Kennard began. “I don’t look in the stand to see who is watching me, but I know a lot of college coaches liked my game. It’s a blessing.”
Throughout the AAU circuit this season, Kennard has accumulated six offers: Dayton, Indiana, Miami (OH), Ohio State, West Virginia, and Xavier.
Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue, Louisville, Minnesota, UCLA, and Toledo are some other schools interested. Right now there is no top school, but there are some that are separating themselves from the rest.
“I don’t have a top school, but I like Ohio State, Michigan, Dayton, and Indiana right now. They are at the top of my list.”
Not only are these great schools, but the coaching staffs have also made Kennard and his family feel at home lately.
“I want a coaching staff that makes me feel like I am at home. Those schools have made me feel at home. Academics are also big for me.”
At 6-foot-5, 190-pounds, Kennard finds himself ranked at No. 11 in the current Future150 rankings. His stellar play has been impressive throughout the summer.
“I feel like I shoot the ball really well and I can get to the basket. My pull-up jumper is a strength, too,” he explained when asked to talk about the strengths to his game.
