Track top Georgia and national football recruits from high school to college through the NFL / pros with AJC news, updates and more.
-- Visit timeline: No more visits planned.
-- Signing odds: Committed to Miami. Seems there is no reason why Kent, who grew up in nearby Fort Lauderdale and still has family there, would back out of commitment.
-- Family athletic background: His mother, Bernetta Walker, played basketball at Miami.
-- Inside info: Kent played very little offense last season, but look for him to start at receiver this year. Also will play some safety this season. Was offered a scholarship by Boston College before playing a single down of varsity ball.
Had eight catches for 85 yards in season opener vs. Camden. In Week 2 against South Gwinnett had three receptions for 75 yards and recorded three tackles.
Kent clearly has the size and athleticism to be a shutdown corner. He’s a physical corner who uses his long arms to disrupt routes at the line of scrimmage. He’s a sure tackler in the open field, coach Keith Maloof said.
Kent had 59 tackles last season.
As a senior and of the team’s best players, can Kent become a leader for the Blue Devils? Can he handle going both ways? Though he seldom was beaten last season, must become more of a playmaker.
Credited with five pass breakups, two forced fumbles and no interceptions.
