Local EDGE Kyle Kennard announced his commitment to Georgia Tech today!

Coming from Riverwood High School in Atlanta, Kennard stands at 6-foot-6, 215 lbs. He commits to Tech over reported offers from Tennessee, Arizona State, and Missouri, among others. He is rated as a three-star recruit by both Rivals (5.5) and the 247 Sports Composite (0.8466).

Watching his film, it looks like Kennard has lined up at a number of places, specifically, he lines up at defensive tackle a good bit. No matter where he is, though, he is able to use his quickness to move past blockers. One thing I’d like to see from his senior film is how he plays as a true EDGE guy since that is where he will profile best at the next level.
