Juco LB Josh Kirkland talks Syracuse visit 

December, 10, 2012
Junior college outside linebacker Josh Kirkland (El Dorado, Kan./Butler Community college) took his first official visit during the weekend to Syracuse, and Kirkland said the first visit set the tone for the future trips.

Kirkland, a 6-foot-3, 207-pound linebacker, gave the visit a “9” out of a 10 and said he had a great time in New York. Although there are reports saying Kirkland committed to the Orange, he said he’s still weighing his options -- at least for now.

“It was pretty amazing,” Kirkland said of the visit. “Compared to Kansas, it’s quite a bit different. I had a great time, and it’s a great school.”
