Doing It the BK Way
Now Kinnie (6-3, 215, 4.5) will try to figure out where he will take those skills on the next level.
University of Arkansas assistant Garrick McGee has the Razorbacks in the mix for the former Grandview (MO) High star.
"When I went down there (in July for an unofficial visit) I liked the facilities a whole lot, how there offense is," Kinnie said.
"I really have got a great relationship with McGee," Kinnie added. "I really like him a lot. He is cool to talk to and stuff like that. He keeps telling me they need people to come in right away and play so we are going to see."
Kinnie caught 56 passes for 815 yards and 9 touchdowns this season for Fort Scott (8-2), who saw its season end Sunday with a 30-17 loss to Hutchinson in the Jayhawk Conference semifinals.
That has quite a few schools taking note.
"Nebraska, Arkansas, LSU, Kansas are some of the schools I am looking at and Georgia called the other day so I am still waiting on setting up a couple of officials," Kinnie said. "I still have four more to go after taking one to Nebraska. I plan on going to Arkansas for one and whatever comes after that. I am just going to wait and take it slow and see."
Kinnie caught 7 passes for 121 yards and a 46-yard touchdown in the loss on Sunday while showing off his play-making ability.
He had catches for first down conversions on a quartet of third and fourth-down plays.
"BK is only going to get better," Sims said. "We have good wide receivers here, but we don't have a lot of them. He was our number one target.
"If he gets somewhere like Arkansas where there are other receivers like him, it will help him raise his level," Sims added. "He works very hard and is a very good kid, but competition breeds success so it will raise his level."
Sims thinks Kinnie has the potential to play on Sundays for a living.
"I really believe – and I think Arkansas would be glad to hear this – I think he is a future NFL, big-time football player," Sims said.
