TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Four-star offensive lineman Denver Kirkland (Miami/Booker T. Washington) already has offers from schools such as Florida State, Auburn, Miami and USC, but the 6-foot-4, 333-pound tackle still decided to compete at the Jimbo Fisher Camp on Thursday afternoon.

"I think I did great," Kirkland said, "but there's still more to work on. There's always room to get better. I just came out here to get better and take my game up another notch."

While at camp, Kirkland had the opportunity work with Florida State offensive line coach Rick Trickett. The massive lineman said his experience with Trickett was memorable.

"It was unique, funny and personal" he said. "It's just all business with him."

Kirkland, who is the No. 21-ranked tackle in the country, claims no favorites at the moment, but added that USC, UCLA, FSU, Miami and South Florida are recruiting him the hardest.
