Caleb Kinlaw RB - Goose Creek High
BY MS JAQUE JONES CITYBALLERS.COM COLUMNIST
Charleston, SC - Growing up in Goose Creek, South Carolina; Caleb Kinlaw followed in the footsteps of his father and brother and began to play football. Caleb Started playing football at the age of 7 and soon found great love for the sport. Now being a junior in high school, attending Goose Creek High, Caleb is one of the top Running Backs in the state of South Carolina.
As a sophomore, Kinlaw rushed for 1,497 yards on 176 carries, and scored 12 touchdowns. This year as a junior for Caleb, he had 130 carries for over 1,000 yards and 15 touchdowns in 11 games. He had more carries and rushing yards his sophomore year but had more touchdowns his junior year which still has him as one of the top prospects for college recruiters. I asked Kinlaw how it feels to be known as one of the best in the state and he replied, “It feels good and it’s very humbling”.
Going into his senior year he’s already been scouted by different college recruiters. Certain schools such as Clemson, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee are all trying to get their hands on this running back. Caleb says, “Having the recruiters wanting him is a great feeling because their always looking out for him and helping him when needed.” Kinlaw hasn’t yet made up his mind on what school he wants to sign with but there are two prospects. North Carolina and Tennessee are right now Caleb Kinlaw’s top two schools. These schools won him over for both having stable running backs, he enjoys the schools environment and he likes that both programs are high on education. Guess we have to wait and see what his final pick will be.
Knocking on wood I asked Caleb what were his long term goals just in case football doesn’t work out. He says, he would like to major in Mechanical Engineering and minor in Sociology. He wants to make sure he has a strong foundation to fall back on. Well here at Cityballers.com we wish Caleb Kinlaw nothing but the best and want to see him continue to grow, be prosperous and remain humble.

UCLA looking to land three 2015 star prospects
Los Angeles, CA - In his first season at UCLA, head coach Jim Mora went 9-5, and led his young team to a bowl game. Mora has brought new life to the program, after crosstown rival USC has dominated L.A. The Bruins defeated the Trojans 38-28 last season, and the battles continue off the field in recruiting.
It's no secret that California produces some of the best talent in the country every year, especially in the L.A. area. Diamond Bar High School isn't a traditional powerhouse in Cali, but does house two of the best prospects in the 2015 class.
WR Cordell Broadus, and ATH Kanya Bell. If the Broadus name sounds familiar, then yes he is rapper Snoop Dogg's youngest son. The 6-2, 185-pound Brodaus holds offers from UCLA, Duke, Washington, and Oregon State. Bell is 6-0, 165-pounds and has offers also from UCLA and Washington. Broadus and Bell are best friends, so the possibility of a package deal to a program isn't out of the question.
UCLA is also recruiting Detroit Cass Tech 2015 QB Jayru Campbell, who already has two state titles. Campbell doesn't have an offer from them, but Alabama, Notre Dame and Michigan State have offered him. Obviously he has potential to be a big time talent in two years, and schools are noticing.
According to Rivals.com, UCLA had the 8th ranked recruiting class in 2013and the '14, and' 15 classes should be even better. With the way Mora recruits, and his NFL background, UCLA could be a destination for top high school talent like Broadus, Bell, and Campbell.
Rapper P.Diddy's son and comedian Sinbad's nephew are already on UCLA's roster, so landing kids of celebrities isn't foreign territory to them. Campbell has expressed his interest in attending school out of state, so the possibility of UCLA landing these three is real.
