Lake Braddock (Burke, VA) offensive lineman Khamrone Kolb isn’t ruling out making a college commitment before the start of his senior high school year, but for now the 6-6, 300-pound prospect is leaning towards taking official visits this fall. Kolb, who is considered one of the top offensive line prospects in the state, knows three official visit destinations so far.
“Lately, I’ve been trying to narrow it down to three or four schools by the end of the summer,” Kolb said. “As of right now, I sort of have a list. Penn State is on it. UVa is on it. U-Conn is on it.

Penn State has not been as active recently as the Cavaliers or the Huskies, but Kolb is not worried about where he stands with the Nittany Lions.
“They have a different sort of recruiting style,” Kolb said, referring to Penn State’s coaches. “I’m still in contact with recruiters from there every week. I’ve looked at who has committed. They have three linemen who are all interior linemen. They still have two spots for tackles and they’ve offered three prospects. None of the three have committed. I talked to Coach [Larry]...
