M.L. King linebacker Joel Kight says he’s going to stay open on all scholarship offers until he learns more about the schools. He’s also learning a new position. The 5-foot-10, 210-pound Kight has moved to safety to help the Lions (3-1) put the best 11 [defenders] on the field. He says it’s possible that he will play safety in college. “It’s not really hurting me. I think it’s helping me,” said Kight of the position change. “As long as we’re getting wins, it’s fine with me.” The biggest difference in the positions? “You think pass first as a safety,” he said. “Linebackers are always thinking run first.” If Kight had to pick front-runners, he said he’d pick Mississippi, Boston College and Oklahoma State. He also has offers from Connecticut, Duke, Miami-Ohio, Indiana and Arizona State. One requirement in the program he chooses is team effort. “As long as they play hard, I like that because I play hard,” he said. Kight is MLK’s leading tackler. He averages 11 tackles (solos and assists) in four games.
