Wow. 6'5" and 210 as a sophomore? Isn't that bigger than Clowney was at that level? I realize he might be a little older than Clowney, but it probably wouldn't be by much. Anyway, my point is that this young man may very well grow considerably over two years.

Quote:
TE Kalen Ritchie (6-6 215) of Goose Creek is projected to be one of the top prospects in the 2014 class. USC is his first offer and right now he's favoring the Gamecocks. "I have big interest in USC," Ritchie said. "I have hopes of playing in the SEC. I love their offense. I like how they've gotten some of their younger tight ends in the game." Ritchie was at USC for the spring game and a junior day. He will take in his first game there when Georgia visits the Cockpit. He will go to Georgia this Saturday with his teammate, Georgia commitment Tramel Terry. He is also getting interest from Clemson, LSU, Alabama and Tennessee. He has been to Clemson before and was at Tennessee for the Florida game. Ritchie said he favors USC over Clemson right now but not by a wide margin. He added he's in no hurry to make a decision.

Heard this kid is on campus today, and it's looking really good for us.

Would not be surprised if he pulled the trigger.

We will probably take both. With Rainey switching to LB that would mean Adams is our youngest TE and by the time they get on campus he will be a JR.

Goose Creek junior standouts TE Kalen Ritchie and RB Caleb Kinlaw will attend junior days Saturday at different places. Ritchie is going to Clemson and Kinlaw to USC according to Gators' coach Chuck Reedy. Ritchie has offers from Clemson and USC and Reedy expects him to stay in state. "I'd be surprised if he does not go to Clemson or South Carolina," he said. "Kinlaw could go anywhere. Georgia Tech likes him a lot." Kinlaw has offers from USC, Clemson, Tennessee, Georgia Tech and North Carolina. Coaches from those schools along with Ohio State have been by the check on the juniors who will be ranked among the best in South Carolina next season.

Default Re: 2014 - Kalen Ritchie

jayceecock, please comment...this kid flattens people in the run game, has the frame to become a true TE, and will only improve as a receiver. I believe his hands are better than people say. His potential is ridiculous.

Kalan reminds me a lot of Devin Taylor. They have the same exact frame and build. I remember watching Devin when he played high school ball in Beaufort. Devin played DE and occasionally played TE. His senior year, I believe he was 6'7" and no more than 220.

Kalan has never played defense, and I don't think Goose Creek will move him to DE in his senior year. He is a very good blocking TE. He is aggressive at the point of contact and will stay on his blocks till the whistle. This is something he does very well that has gotten the attention of many recruiters. Even at 225, I have seen him just manhandle bigger DEs. He is also quick enough and moves his feet well where GC will split him out and block DBs.

Watch Kalan (85) split wide left take on DB:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4wUStqpcxo

As far as catching the ball, he has come a long ways. He has good hands, frames the ball well and is getting better at running after the catch. With Tramel Terry gone, I see Kalan playing a bigger role in their passing game.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RhCU-Tt881Q

Last time I saw Kalan, he looked taller than 6'6". He may not be done growing. I think if he gets any taller, he may not be able to play TE. With his frame, he could easily put on 50 more pounds.

C2 probably edited the title after all of the other responses. As for the couple that appeared earlier in the thread that have the spelling correct, it is possible to alter the title of the thread within each post. Look at what the topic of my post supposedly is.
